Refusing to give in to aging and looking for an all-natural solution to help you rejuvenate your look?
At Privé Aesthetics, we offer Juvéderm® fillers for all of the men and women in Dallas who desire to age beautifully. Juvéderm® fillers contain a base of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid, and they are injected into the face, jawline, and neck areas. They help counteract the effects of aging on the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production and consequently restoring its elasticity. The result is a smooth, supple, vibrant, and more youthful look.
Here are some tips from our aesthetic experts here at Privé Aesthetics to help you unlock and reap the greatest benefits of Juvéderm®.
Tip #1 Schedule a consultation with one of our providers.
If you want to learn more about Juvéderm®, particularly its benefits and whether it is right for you, arrange an appointment with one of our aesthetic specialists. This way, you can also tell them whether you have sensitive skin or a history of allergic reactions, especially to lidocaine, the numbing agent in the solution.
After doing a thorough assessment, our aesthetic expert will let you know if Juvéderm® is suitable for you or if you need to try another option.
Tip #2 Avoid sun and heat exposure.
If Juvéderm® is appropriate for you, make sure to avoid intense heat following the procedure, as this can degrade hyaluronic acid, reduce its effects, and possibly, exacerbate the swelling. Avoid sun exposure and going to sauna or getting a hot shower for at least 24 hours or until the swelling has resolved.
If you really need to go outside, make sure to cover your face, wear a hat, or apply—and frequently reapply—sunscreen with a high SPF.
Tip #3 Have realistic expectations.
As with any other aesthetic treatment, the people who are most satisfied with the results are those with realistic expectations. While it’s true Juvéderm® can effectively help give you a youthful appearance, don’t expect to look 20 years younger.
Feel free to discuss with our aesthetic expert about your ideal outcome. They will also set your expectations for the treatment.
Tip #4 Skip the facial, massage, or microdermabrasion.
Albeit extremely rare, dermal fillers like Juvéderm® may migrate within the skin if adequate and consistent pressure is applied on the treated areas, so we advise our patients to skip the facial, massage, and microdermabrasion for a few weeks following the procedure.
Additionally, avoid rubbing the injection sites for the first 24 hours, as this may irritate your skin and exacerbate the bruising or swelling.
Tip #5 See us for a follow-up appointment.
The results of Juvéderm® fillers vary depending on the specific product used, the treatment area, and other factors, but they generally produce instant results—noticeably plumper skin after just a single treatment.
You will fully see the results after a few weeks, as the treatment gradually softens and draws moisture to the treatment area/s. The fillers will last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. After this, we encourage that you come back for an additional appointment, so you can reap the benefits of the treatment all over again!
