Juvederm Procedures

Shore Medical Aesthetics performs Juvederm treatments for those wishing to get rid of wrinkles or increase fullness in the lips. Juvederm is a filler made of hydraulic acid, rather than collagen to plump up your skin. Hydraulic acid is a substance naturally found in the body. Due to this, the hydraulic acid used in Juvederm procedures is created by biosynthesis in a laboratory, thus patients are not required to take an allergy test before receiving treatment. Furthermore, Juvederm poses a very minimal risk of allergic reactions. However, those patients with a history of severe allergies may not be considered suitable candidates for Juvederm procedures.

Appropriate Candidates for Juvederm Procedures

Juvederm procedures are appropriate for any area of the face. This includes lines and creases around the mouth, nose and forehead, as well as for facial contouring to improve the appearance of scars. Juvederm procedures can also be used to enhance the size and shape of the lips. All of these areas will display improvement after the procedure and the results will be longer-lasting than other wrinkle reducers. 

Good candidates for Juvederm procedures are those patients who would like to improve upon the appearance of their facial lines or augment the lips. All that is required for general treatment, for the most part, is that the patient is dissatisfied with the appearance of their facial wrinkles and creases, or with the fullness of their lips. However, Juvederm procedures are not recommended if the patient is pregnant. 

Juvederm Preparation 

During Juvederm procedures, the Juvederm filler is injected into the area of wrinkles and creases with minimal discomfort. Some patients may wish to combine Juvederm filler with Botox for an even more dramatic effect.

When preparing for Juvederm procedures, patients are advised to stop taking anti-inflammatory medications or aspirin one to three days prior to treatment. And do not wear make-up to your appointment either. But once the treatment is complete, you will be able to maintain your skin care and make-up routine. After your Juvederm treatment, there are also a few things to consider to provide for optimal results of the recent procedure.
