Are Juvederm Injections a Good Choice for You?

Over time, you’ve probably taken notice of the years of lived experience that shows itself on your face in every smile line or forehead crease. As we age and our skin loses its texture and elasticity, these features can become more prominent. Suddenly, as if overnight, you wake up one morning and look in the mirror to find someone who doesn’t look like the you that you want to be. A long and happy life lived is nothing to hide, but for some Ottawa residents, the presence of these fine lines and deep creases can make us feel less than confident in our skin. We want to put our best faces forward into everything that we do, and the burdens of age can make this difficult for many of us.

There are tons of creams, serums, injections, and pills on the market that promise to tighten up your skin and make you look youthfully radiant, but a lot of that is just empty filler and broken promises. What you want-a-way to restore your skin’s natural beauty to its former glory is just a few steps away at Dermis Advanced Skin Care in Ottawa. In your search for a solution that will help you to look as young as you feel, you’ve probably at least heard of the term “Juvederm injections.” But is it right for you?

Hyaluronic Acid: The Key to Juvederm’s Success

Juvederm is unlike other injected fillers because it contains hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that naturally occurs within your body. This acid’s premier function is for the healing and growth of skin cells when applied via injection at Dermis Advanced Skin Care. This unique filler joins forces with the water that’s present inside your skin to fill lines, add luscious volume to your lips and make your skin feel youthful and taut. Because hyaluronic acid acts differently from other fillers, it will not freeze your face in place so that you look like a wax statue. Your results are bound to be more natural looking to the eye, without the unfortunate “freezing” side effect.

An Overview of your Juvederm Treatment

If you choose Dermis Advanced Skin Care in Ottawa to provide you with these injections, you will find that we offer a minimally-invasive and entirely surgery-free procedure that has almost zero downtime. So you can get back to your life quickly and without pain.

When you first consult with the professionals at Dermis Advanced Skin Care, there will be much discussion about the goals of your treatment so that it can be specifically tailored to what you and your skin need. This initial appointment, depending on the nature and number of your concerns, usually lasts between fifteen minutes and a full hour. So stop in during your lunch break, or between errands while you’re out and about in Ottawa!

The procedure includes an anesthetic, so you’ll be able to go right back to your daily life as soon as you walk out of the front door. Afterward, however, you will need to take some special precautions to keep your skin healthy after your Juvederm injections. Avoid cosmetics for the first half day and stay out of extreme temperatures for at least two weeks. Some clients also experience swelling, redness and bruising around the treated area, but that usually goes away in just a few days. If you have any concerns about the healing process, or if something doesn’t seem quite right after your injections, call us at 613-233-7546 and we will put your mind at ease!

What Happens Once the Treatment is Done? 

After your Juvederm treatment, you will find your skin to be firmer and smoother than it was before. But most importantly, you won’t look like you’re wearing a mask! The results of this procedure are entirely natural-looking because the ingredients are naturally occurring in your body already! Without surgery or “frozen face syndrome,” you can restore the natural, youthful appearance of your skin with minimal side-effects. These results can last for up to two years.

And if you don’t like your results, don’t worry! We can reverse it here at Dermis Advanced Skin Care!
