How do Dermal Fillers & JUVEDERM work?
Over the past several years, the opinion for injectable fillers has become significantly refined. The majority of fillers used today are forms of hyaluronic acid (Ha). Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in all mammals and has been successfully and safely cloned in the laboratory. Because pure hyaluronic acid would be broken down by the body in about 24 hours. Hyaluronic acid injectables have been modified to increase their stability over time by a process called cross-linking. The different HA products differ in molecule size as well as the amount of cross-linking. These variations cause changes in characteristics such as “thickness” of the product and how long it remains in the body. The average treatment results last around six months but can last up to 2 years.
The most popular types of HA injectables are made by Juvederm. Here at PEace Love MEd, we carry the full series of Juvederm V-Cross Technology, including Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure.
The results of this procedure
Bruising at all, and small bruises, when they occur, can be covered with makeup. Many patients will either return to work or have social activities within hours of their injections. One exception would be lip enhancement. Which should be expected to result in some noticeable swelling and/or bruising for one or two days.
It is worthwhile to avoid aspirin, Motrin, and similar blood-thinning products for three days before injections to minimize the risk of bruising.
The benefits of this procedure produce overall better-looking skin by adding volume and contour to the face and surrounding area. Additionally, it can turn back the effects of aging. Contrary to botox, this is not a paralyzer. This means that you will not lose any muscular usage in the affected area. In south Florida, we have helped countless people turn back the hands of time using our injectable fillers. If you would like to learn, more about these services feel free to call us today!
