Dermal fillers represent a non surgical way to address this issue of facial volume loss, filling the void under the skin and erasing creases. The results are a natural, more youthful look, with softer facial contours and a healthier appearance. The newest and safest dermal filler is Hyaluronic Acid (H.A). It is injected not only to fill lines (e.g. Laughter lines and Marionette lines) but to also volumize and to re-establish the youthful contour of the skin.
Juvederm dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers applied under the skin to smooth away wrinkles and fill up specific facial areas. Hyaluronic acid fillers are similar to collagen but last longer (upto 12 months) and do not require skin testing for allergies. Juvederm is made by Allergan, a well respected company that is also the makers of Botox. Juvederm Dermal Fillers are FDA-approved.
Juvederm dermal fillers represent a significant advancement in Dermal Fillers. They are naturally modified forms of Hyaluronic acid. They have an enormous safety record and are a non-animal product without any organic solvents.
The advantage of Juvederm dermal fillers is that they naturally attract water molecules and hydrate the skin by holding in water and acting as a cushioning agent. This is what gives a smoother, healthier glow to the skin and creates a filling effect long after the actual Juvederm filler is injected. Juvederm fillers are placed slightly deeper into the skin because they are thicker and last longer.
Juvederm dermal fillers require less volume to fill wrinkles and hard to treat skin folds. Juvederm is great for actual folds in the skin and deeper crevices, such as the nasolabial folds and marionette folds that extend downward from the corners of the mouth.
There is typically no down time with Juvederm dermal filling although patients may experience mild swelling, redness and/or throbbing in the injection sites. This can be controlled by applying ice and usually lasts no more than 24 hours. Patients may resume all normal activity immediately following the injections.
There is no upper or lower age limit for anti-ageing treatment with the Juvederm range of products (except for children), but those patients with very thin skin will need different treatment than those with thicker skin. Juvederm is a colourless gel injected into the skin. We will be able to advise you on whether you are well-suited for treatment, and which product is best for which area of your face.
Pricing depends on the amount of Juvederm product needed to adequately treat the desired areas and therefore varies from case to case. We will assess your wishes and let you know how many Juvederm vials are required for your case. Typically each Juvederm vial costs £240 to administer and each vial may be able to do more than one facial area depending on the size of the area.
