6. DO JUVÉDERM FILLER INJECTIONS HURT?

6. DO JUVÉDERM FILLER INJECTIONS HURT?

As a general practice, any injection can hurt, but the needles used for filler injections are tiny, so any pain or discomfort is usually minimal.

At Sandia Skin + Face, we offer distractors from the pain, such as ice packs and numbing cream, so you may not feel much if any discomfort at all!

7. WILL JUVÉDERM FILLER MAKE MY FACE LOOK UNNATURAL?

7. WILL JUVÉDERM FILLER MAKE MY FACE LOOK UNNATURAL?

If your medical professional injects too much filler in the wrong places, your face could have “Pillow Face” results from overfilling in the cheeks and under the eyes. Full cheeks are associated with youthfulness. However, the use of too much filler results in overly puffy cheeks which look unnatural and inappropriate for their age.

We can assure you that our experienced Master Injector and Nurse Practitioner, Tonya C. Tuggle, is skilled in making you look just like your usual self – just noticeably more youthful and refreshed!

9. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUVÉDERM® AND BOTOX®?

9. WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUVÉDERM® AND BOTOX®?

People get these two types of injectables confused quite often, but here’s an easy way to distinguish between the two:

● Botox® is made for “relaxing wrinkles” in the face that cause wrinkles;
● Juvéderm® Facial fillers “fill the facial void areas” with a gel made of hyaluronic acid, which helps to plump and lift the skin, replacing volume loss as we age.

While both treatments are considered effective, Juvéderm® works quicker and lasts longer. Botox® can take a few days to take effect, and the results wear off after a few months. You will need follow-up treatments to maintain your results, no matter which treatment you choose.

10. HOW DOES JUVÉDERM FILLER REMOVE WRINKLES?

10. HOW DOES JUVÉDERM FILLER REMOVE WRINKLES?

Injecting JUVÉDERM filler into the areas where wrinkles form replaces the lost volume and lessens the look of these lines, making your skin appear smoother overall.

Whether you have fine lines or severe wrinkles, fillers work to soften their look to give you a natural-looking, younger appearance.

11. HOW LONG SHOULD A JUVÉDERM® TREATMENT LAST?

11. HOW LONG SHOULD A JUVÉDERM® TREATMENT LAST?

For most patients, JUVÉDERM Filler injections last up to 9 months.

Juvederm has become very popular for cosmetic use because it is excellent at correcting those signs of aging. Some patients call it the “liquid facelift”.

To keep your results lasting as long as possible, you likely will need follow-up treatments.

13. SHOULD I BE OVER 40 TO START USING JUVÉDERM®?

13. SHOULD I BE OVER 40 TO START USING JUVÉDERM®?

Your age is not what determines when JUVÉDERM Filler is right for you. It’s the severity of your wrinkles. 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.

The reality is that everyone’s wrinkles begin at a different age. Influencing the timing of wrinkle formation is a combination of factors, including cellular changes that may occur over time, the reduction of collagen, genetic factors, or damage caused by the sun and the environment.

The typical age for JUVÉDERM Filler injections is between 21 and 65. However, if you’re in good health, you’re never too old to receive filler treatment.

Whichever age your wrinkles, lips, or cheeks appearance start to bother you, speak with your medical specialist or physician. They can help you determine if treatment is proper for you.

14. HOW MUCH TIME WILL A JUVÉDERM® TREATMENT TAKE?

14. HOW MUCH TIME WILL A JUVÉDERM® TREATMENT TAKE?

Your JUVEDERM® specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. If the Sandia Skin + Face team deems you to be a proper Dermal Filler candidate and the schedule allows, the injection might occur on that same day.

Lip filler injections themselves only take about 10-15 minutes!

Some patients report that being injected with JUVÉDERM® feels like a pinch with one’s fingers. Your JUVÉDERM® specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Optionally, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

15. HOW QUICKLY AFTER A JUVÉDERM FILLER TREATMENT WILL I SEE RESULTS?

15. HOW QUICKLY AFTER A JUVÉDERM FILLER TREATMENT WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Each patient’s results will vary. One may begin to notice JUVÉDERM Filler as soon as it has been injected. The presence of Juvederm Filler beneath the skin is enough to smooth, plump, and volumize the face. Those immediate results are a nice form of instant gratification. with full results visible in two weeks.

It usually takes another two weeks to see the dermal filler results fully develop and settle into your treated facial area.

Remember that results vary from patient to patient, so your JUVÉDERM® specialist will plan your follow-up appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.

16. AFTER A JUVÉDERM FILLER TREATMENT, HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?

A JUVÉDERM® Filler Injection Treatment requires no downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your dermal filler specialist’s office.

Swelling and bruising usually subside within 24-48 hours in most patients. However, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers like JUVÉDERM® attract water. Therefore, you may have extra fullness in the areas injected, which should resolve within 10-14 days when the results soften, and further enhancements become visible.

[juvederm faq] #juvederm #juvedermfiller #cosmetic #medspa #sandiaskinface

19. IS THERE A “GENERIC” FORMULATION OF JUVÉDERM®?

19. IS THERE A "GENERIC" FORMULATION OF JUVÉDERM®?

There is no such thing as a “generic” form of JUVÉDERM®. If it doesn’t say JUVÉDERM® on the vial, it isn’t JUVÉDERM Filler.

There are many “fake” filler products out in the world, often found on the internet. In general, these unknown fillers are neither safe nor licensed.

You can read more on the Allure website as to some of their discoveries on dangerous, fake fillers. Be Safe! Doing self-injections of any filler product you purchased off the internet is NOT the way to safely enhance your appearance.

Speak with your Cosmetic Medical Spa Specialist to discuss if any of these alternative wrinkle relaxation alternatives are right for you.

20. HOW MUCH RESEARCH HAS GONE INTO JUVÉDERM®?

20. HOW MUCH RESEARCH HAS GONE INTO JUVÉDERM®?

In 2013 the results of a clinical study were published on Juvederm XC.

This study concluded: “Juvéderm® with pre-incorporated lidocaine is associated with significantly less injection pain than a non-lidocaine HA gel formulation. Lidocaine enhanced treatment comfort and optimized the injection experience while maintaining a similar safety and effectiveness profile to HA dermal fillers without lidocaine.

Speak with your Cosmetic Medical Spa Specialist to discuss any questions or concerns.

21. HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A JUVÉDERM FILLER TREATMENT?

21. HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A JUVÉDERM FILLER TREATMENT?

Typically, a week before any dermal filler treatment, most physicians will advise their patients to stop:

● Anti-inflammatory medications like Motrin and Aleve,
● Blood thinners like aspirin, ibuprofen, Gingko Biloba, Ginseng Garlic and Fish Oil
● Vitamin E, Fish oil, Gingko Biloba, and St. John’s Wort
● Stop drinking alcohol 1-2 days before injections

Before treatment we advise:

● Application of a cold pack for 5-15 minutes to constrict the blood vessels
● Take Arnica Montana 2-3 days before treatment. Arnica is a dietary supplement that can reduce bleeding and inflammation. Always consult your doctor prior to changing medications.

After the procedure, eliminating these medications and nutritional supplements will help minimize any bruising.

If you have ever had a cold sore around the mouth or near an injection site be sure to talk to your doctor before any Dermal Filler treatment. To prevent an outbreak, they will likely prescribe an antiviral medication.

22. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUVÉDERM® AND SCULPTRA®?

22. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUVÉDERM® AND SCULPTRA®?

JUVÉDERM® fills the treated area under the skin with a gel-like substance to achieve volume. Juvederm does not affect your natural collagen production.

SCULPTRA® does not “fill” the treated under your skin but instead works with your body to “boost natural collagen” production in the treated area.

[juvederm faq] #juvederm #juvedermfiller #cosmetic #medspa #sandiaskinface

23. IS 1 SYRINGE OF JUVEDERM FILLER ENOUGH TO PLUMP MY LIPS?

23. IS 1 SYRINGE OF JUVEDERM FILLER ENOUGH TO PLUMP MY LIPS?

The short answer is, “it depends on your lips and the desired change.”

For some, a half syringe of JUVEDERM® lip filler will give you a subtle result, which is excellent if you want your lips to be more natural-looking, to correct minor asymmetry, or to add hydration.

A full syringe of JUVEDERM® lip filler will provide a more full and noticeable result but won’t leave you with overfilled lips.

[juvederm faq] #juvederm #juvedermfiller #cosmetic #medspa #sandiaskinface

24. IS JUVÉDERM FILLER BETTER THAN PLASTIC SURGERY?

24. IS JUVÉDERM FILLER BETTER THAN PLASTIC SURGERY?

Compared to plastic surgery, the Juvéderm Filler procedure is relatively quick (typically 30-60 minutes), minimally invasive, and requires little-to-no downtime. The Juvéderm Filler results are instant and long-lasting but not permanent, allowing flexibility and less commitment to a certain aesthetic.

Additionally, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers’ significant benefit compared to Plastic Surgery is that HA fillers are dissolvable. The use of HA means that any cosmetic result can be reversed at any time if desired.

One big misconception about fillers such as Juvéderm Filler is that one syringe can drastically change a person’s appearance. One syringe of Juvéderm is such a small amount of product that it only “tweaks” an area. One will require multiple syringes for a total face transformation.
