Spring has officially arrived here in Illinois, and if you’re hoping to put your best face forward this spring and summer season, Leslie Forrester, APRN, and our team at Wrinkle Fairy, in Chicago, Oakbrook, Arlington Heights, and Naperville, Illinois, can help with the assistance of one of our signature facial rejuvenation treatments — powerful and innovative Juvéderm®.
Juvéderm injectable fillers help restore lost facial volume, smoothing your skin and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Here’s what you need to know about this cutting-edge line of dermal fillers!
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a brand of FDA-approved dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid to boost volume and smooth your skin. Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid to aid with moisture retention and lubrication.
Hyaluronic acid has amazing binding properties, able to bind with up to 4000 times its weight in water molecules! In fact, it’s so powerful that orthopedic surgeons often use it when repairing damaged joints.
The amazing moisturizing power added by hyaluronic acid brings renewed volume and freshness to your skin, with every Juvéderm injection improving skin and tissue lubrication, tissue support, and volume to your most problematic areas.
Where can I use Juvéderm?
Juvéderm injectable fillers are primarily designed to restore volume to your face. The team at Wrinkle Fairy has a deep understanding of each type of Juvéderm injectable and how each might best target your specific needs.
After reviewing your skin condition and aesthetic goals, our knowledgeable providers help customize a treatment plan for you to ensure optimal results. While Juvéderm injectables have different applications, generally speaking, Juvéderm can be used to:
- Boost lost volume in your cheeks
- Minimize fine lines and wrinkles from smoking
- Reduce nasolabial folds (the deep lines that form between your mouth and nose)
- Plump thinning lips
Some people hesitate to get dermal fillers because they worry the results will look “plastic” or unnatural. At Wrinkle Fairy, you can rest easy knowing Leslie and our experienced team treated patients with fillers for years with a proven record of achieving natural-looking results.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
No injection is completely painless, however, most patients receiving Juvéderm injections don’t experience significant pain. Your specialist at Wrinkle Fairy works hard to ensure your comfort during treatment by first numbing the area if you prefer before the injection so you feel only a slight pinch
As an added bonus, some of the Juvéderm injectables contain a numbing agent. And the ultra-thin needles used with Juvéderm fillers help minimize any discomfort and work to keep any bruising to a minimum.
How fast will I see results with Juvéderm?
One of the best things about Juvéderm fillers is that you’ll be able to see changes right away! It’s important to note, however, that you’ll have some mild swelling immediately following your session.
Depending on the treatment areas and the number of injections you receive, it can take one to two days for this mild swelling to go away. Once the swelling is gone, you’ll enjoy optimal results from your Juvéderm treatment.
Do I need more than one Juvéderm treatment?
Every patient has different skin goals and a different starting point. As such, the number of Juvéderm treatments required to reach your goals varies from patient to patient. At Wrinkle Fairy, most of our clients have good results after one session with Juvéderm, but our team members discuss your specific needs before beginning treatment.
On average, Juvéderm treatments last for about 12 months, but some clients experience results that last up to two years since the effects of the fillers wear off slowly. When you notice your results are starting to fade, simply schedule a consultation to discuss a touch-up session.
