As we age, our collagen production begins to slow. Since collagen gives our skin a plump and youthful look, this decline can lead to sagging and a loss of elasticity. While some surgical procedures can correct this issue, many people want non-invasive alternatives that don’t interrupt their lives. The most popular options at Dermatology Realm are Juvéderm fillers. The fillers we use require minimal downtime and offer beautiful results without the stress of recovering from surgery.
Our talented team can treat a variety of areas with these fillers, including your mouth, nose, cheeks, hands, and more. When you schedule a consultation with our office in Germantown, we can customize a treatment plan for you to meet your aesthetic goals and fit your lifestyle.
What are Juvéderm fillers?
Juvéderm fillers are cosmetic dermal fillers that are uniquely designed to address the signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, deep folds, and age-related volume loss. Juvéderm fillers use hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies, so these fillers are safe to use and pose fewer risks than other options.
There are several different products in the Juvéderm family. The fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency, and each one uses a specific concentration of hyaluronic acid to target particular areas of the face. This adds volume to the facial tissue by stimulating collagen production, which naturally plumps the skin.
We start by applying a topical numbing cream to the area before administering treatment to make the experience as comfortable as possible. After injecting Juvéderm, we’ll lightly massage the treatment area to ensure even distribution and apply an ice pack to soothe your skin and ease any swelling.
The procedure will normally take 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area we’re treating. The injections contain a small amount of pain-reducing lidocaine to help minimize pain or discomfort, making this an excellent option for anyone anxious about the procedure. Recovery time is minimal, and most patients will see results immediately.
Who is a candidate for dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are so popular because just about anyone can use them! It’s important to be in good health, including stopping smoking, before pursuing any cosmetic treatments to guarantee the best, longest-lasting results.
You should approach treatment with fillers with a positive attitude and realistic expectations. A consultation with Dr. Baker in our Germantown office will give you a chance to discuss your goals and understand what to expect from your treatment.
Benefits of dermal fillers
The signs of aging can be frustrating, but you don’t have to settle for an appearance you don’t love. The benefits of Juvederm fillers with Dermatology Realm include:
Erase lines and wrinkles
The lines around your nose and mouth can be deep and noticeable. Fillers can give your skin volume and help fill those wrinkles.
Plump thin lips
Lips often get thinner with age due to volume loss and changes in skin texture. Fillers can restore youthful volume and eliminate deep lines.
Lift sagging cheeks
Skin can lose volume over time, resulting in loose, saggy skin and a tired-looking appearance. Juvederm fillers increase volume to lift your cheeks for a rejuvenated appearance.
One of the best features of Juvederm fillers is that there is no downtime after treatment. You’ll see immediate results without any disruption to your routine.
