Turn Back the Clock with JUVÉDERM®
Genetics, the natural aging process, and exposure to the sun and other environmental factors can create unwelcome lines and wrinkles, and cause the skin to lose volume and start to sag. Dr. David Passaretti can reverse common signs of aging by treating deep simile lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet with JUVÉDERM® injections at our Darien office. To learn more about whether JUVÉDERM® is right for you, schedule a consultation with us today.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a smooth, transparent gel filler that is injected in the face to add volume and elasticity to your skin while smoothing away wrinkles. With just one treatment, JUVÉDERM® can dramatically improve your appearance. The results are so natural looking, everyone will notice but no one will know.
JUVÉDERM® is one of the most popular, non-surgical, anti-aging treatments available to correct wrinkles and folds on the face. It is the only FDA-approved filler that, with proper maintenance, can offer results lasting up to one year. JUVÉDERM® is unique to all other hyaluronic acid-based products because the gel is smooth rather than granular, which allows it to flow easily into the skin. Hyaluronic acid naturally exists within the layers of your skin so common side effects are mild. JUVÉDERM® does not require any testing prior to administration and is appropriate for most areas of the face, including the lines around your mouth, your nose, and your forehead. It can also be used to enhance the appearance of your lips and improve the appearance of scars, such as acne scars.
JUVÉDERM® is effective in treating many different skin types. It is also the first and only dermal filler that has been proven safe, with no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or scarring, for men and women of color.
Determining Your Candidacy
If you are concerned with lines and wrinkles, or have lost volume in your face, you might be an excellent candidate for JUVÉDERM®. The injections can be used to fill in sunken areas around the eyes or cheekbones, to augment thin or aging lips, or treat acne or surgical scars. Since it is not animal-based, allergies are rare and may be a better choice for people who have tried other procedures but were not pleased with the results. However, women who are pregnant or nursing are typically not good candidates for dermal filler procedures. During your personalized consultation, Dr. Passaretti can review medical history and cosmetic goals, as well as answer any questions you may have regarding treatment.
Combining JUVÉDERM® with Other Procedures
If you have deep lines between your eyebrows, JUVÉDERM® can be administered at the same time as BOTOX® Cosmetic, since the medications are placed in different areas. JUVÉDERM® is injected beneath the lines and BOTOX® is injected into the muscle on either side of the lines. Not only is it safe to have these procedures performed at the same time, but the cosmetic outcome is often complimented by combining the two.
Sculptra® is a collagen stimulator that is injected deeper than JUVÉDERM®, restoring volume in the entire face and in targeted areas like the temples, cheeks, nasal folds, and jowls. JUVÉDERM® and Sculptra® injections can be performed very close together. Sculptra® injections are given in a series of two to four sessions six weeks apart and it takes over four to six months to see the results, which are beautifully natural, gradual, and subtle. The effects last more than two years, which means you will appear younger as each day goes by. So, while you are waiting for the effects of Sculptra® to stimulate your collagen growth, JUVÉDERM® can provide you with more immediate results.
