By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM on Juvéderm®
If you’d like to gently ease the signs of ageing and subtly return to a younger, fresher version of yourself, there’s no need to resort to a surgical facelift. Juvéderm® can help revitalise, lift, define and enhance areas of your face for natural and long-lasting results.
Juvederm facial fillers are used by medical practitioners around the world. These high quality hyaluronic acid fillers treat every concern, from fine lines to deep folds and wrinkles, for a more natural, youthful-looking glow. Results are quick and long lasting with minimal downtime.
An innovative development from Juvederm is the Vycross® range. These dermal fillers are particularly renowned for their smoothness and results.
Different hyaluronic acid fillers within the Juvéderm® range are for different skin areas and outcomes. At your initial consultation with our qualified medical practitioners, we’ll discuss a personalised treatment plan that’s tailored to you. It could be that you need one or more of these options:
Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
You should be able to spot the difference immediately as a non-surgical lift. Your skin will look dewy and revitalised in a totally natural way.
Juvéderm® facial fillers mimic the lifting effect of your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid and keep skin hydrated and elastic. Results can last up to a year with Juvéderm® VOLIFT® having an estimated duration of 15 months and Juvéderm® VOLUMA® of up to 18 months.
Juvéderm® fillers are semi-permanent and will break down over time so, to retain the results, we would recommend maintenance treatments. Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
Dr Tracy Mountford, owner of The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, is renowned for her light hands and natural looking results. She personally handpicks and trains all of our medical practitioners to the highest level.
There is no need for allergy testing because the fillers contain hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in your skin anyway and is used in other medical procedures such as eye surgery.
We may recommend you avoid make up for 12 hours but can then use it to cover any telltale signs of the treatment.
No, there’s no downtime and you can resume your normal activities after treatment.
Many people find their procedure at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic more comfortable than expected. Our medical practitioners are highly skilled and precise; you should merely feel a light sting on your skin during the injection procedure.
Juvéderm® facial fillers are smooth in consistency, making them easier to administer. Apart from Juvéderm® Hydrate®, they all contain a built-in anaesthetic – Lidocaine – making the whole injection process a more comfortable experience.
Following the injection process, you may experience slight redness, swelling or bruising at the injected area. These effects should not last for more than a week; you should avoid additional treatments in the treated area for the next 7 days.
Both treatments involve injections, but botulinum toxin relaxes muscle movement that results in wrinkles while Juvéderm® facial fillers plump out and helps to smooth wrinkles.
Although Juvéderm® and other dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to fill out wrinkles, several studies suggest that these fillers also induce the formation of collagen. The result of this stimulation is that skin look fresher and more rested for longer.
Potential Juvederm side effects may include redness, itching, swelling, numbness, bruising or mild pain. These are injection-site reactions and may appear immediately after the treatment or later on. Juvederm side effects can last up to a week. If you notice that your reactions last longer than one week, please seek medical support as soon as possible.
