What are JUVÉDERM® fillers?

Glo Skin - What are JUVÉDERM® fillers

Wrinkles and fine lines are inevitable signs of aging. In the world of cosmetic dermatology, dermal fillers and injectables have become an increasingly popular way to reduce the signs of aging. Over time, our skin loses its elasticity and collagen due to years of sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle. Your skin will begin to lose its youthful volume in the cheeks, around the eyes, and around the lips resulting in thinner, shallow-looking skin. JUVÉDERM® can enhance your natural beauty by adding definition and volume to your facial features, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles, revealing a more youthful appearance.

JUVÉDERM® Treatment in Edmonton 

Wrinkles and fine lines can make us look less attractive than when we had youthful, tighter skin years ago. This can potentially ruin your self-esteem, especially if aging occurs prematurely. For instantaneous results, JUVÉDERM® treatments are an excellent non-invasive option and require no downtime after your appointment.

Our medically trained skin specialists and nurses at Glo Skin & Medspa have the skills and experience to administer JUVÉDERM® injections. To find out if you are a good candidate for JUVÉDERM®, contact us at (780)-481-9772 or book a Complimentary Consultation.


Dermal Filler Vs. Botox Injections

JUVÉDERM® fillers are not to be confused by BOTOX® injections or any other FDA-approved injections used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX®  treatments involve freezing the facial muscle underneath the skin resulting in a smoother appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; whereas, JUVÉDERM® facial fillers are made from sterile gels containing hyaluronic acid - a natural sugar found in the skin. The hyaluronic acid promotes new collagen growth as well as restores the volume of your skin resulting in a more youthful look. Dermal fillers are also completely reversible through the use of synthetic hyaluronidase which metabolizes hyaluronic acid.

Benefits Of JUVÉDERM® Fillers

In the world of dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM® has stood out as a popular option and is highly recommended by plastic surgeons, skin specialists, and patients. It is the only FDA-approved dermal filler that can last up to one year and delivers natural-looking results time and time again. Here are a few amazing benefits that come with JUVÉDERM® fillers:
 

  • Smooth & Natural Results: JUVÉDERM® offers a smooth gel texture that provides patients with smoother, plumper cheeks without looking artificial. This filler creates authentic contours in the face while ironing out any fine lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM® offers beautiful results that will leave you looking more youthful and fresh-faced.
  • Non-Allergenic: JUVÉDERM® is made out of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid which is found naturally within our bodies. This eliminates the risk of potential allergic reactions or other complications. Other dermal fillers use animal-based hyaluronic acid which poses the risk of allergic reactions among patients. JUVÉDERM®’s revolutionary formula allows everyone to have access to dermal fillers without worrying about the risk of where the filler was sourced from.
  • Long-Term Skin Benefits: Hyaluronic acid is a common skincare ingredient found in most skincare products and is also found naturally in our bodies. Hyaluronic acid works to add moisture to the skin and as we get older, our supply of hyaluronic acid depletes leaving our skin looking dry, dull, limp, and deflated. While the JUVÉDERM® injection plumps your skin, it also works hard at replenishing your body's natural hyaluronic acid supply. Research shows that repeated treatments with JUVÉDERM® can overall help improve your skin's function and form.


What Are The Possible Side Effects of JUVÉDERM®

According to the FDA, common side effects in the injection site of your JUVÉDERM® filler include:

  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Swelling

These side effects should only last a couple of weeks after your treatment. If these side effects continue; however, contact your skin specialist right away. 

Other serious but rare side effects can include:

  • Raised bumps near the injection area
  • Scarring
  • Loss of blood
  • Allergic reactions

I came in to enquire about some skin imperfections and botox etc. The staff was especially sensitive to what I needed and complimented what I already had. I hope the staff excel in the areas of dematology/age tolerations in their career. They are a must with this area of beauty. Thanks for all of the valuable information.
