Juvederm

"The instant solution for lines, wrinkles, lip enhancement and facial contouring."

Many of us are comfortable with the lines and wrinkles that appear on our faces over time but then again, many are not. Thanks to the large range of 'fillers' available lines and wrinkles can be a thing of the past. Treatment is safe, quick and effective with minimal recovery and maintenance time, a top up might be needed once a year.

How wrinkles form

Your skin is constantly under attack. Each day you are exposed to an assault of wind, sun, cold and pollution. In addition, fatigue, emotional changes, hormonal swings and simply the passage of time can take their toll on your skin. These internal and external attacks combine to weaken your skin's structure and appearance.

The skin's structure deteriorates at the level of the dermis, the deeper living layer of the skin. When vital components of the dermis such as collagen fibres, elastin and hyaluronic acid become less abundant, the dermis is weakened, causing a noticeable impact on the appearance of the skin.

The role of hyaluronic acid and Hydra Fill

The hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in your skin, plays an important role in moisturising the skin and helps to give it elasticity and tone. It is the fundamental matter in which the collagen fibres and elastin are immersed. It is a reduction in the natural hyaluronic acid in the skin over time which contributes to skin ageing.

Juvederm is similar to the hyaluronic acid found in skin. Injected into the dermis, it replenishes the natural hyaluronic acid and hydrates the dermis by imprisoning the water molecules and giving back to the skin its volume and initial form. In this way ageing lines are quickly reduced and the lip border instantly lifted and increased, so helping to preserve and restore a youthful looking skin.

Treatment with Juvederm

Juvederm is suitable for all skin types. After a personalised consultation and diagnosis, your practitioner will propose the most suitable treatment for you. Juvederm is available in three formulations, depending on the types and severity of wrinkles to be treated.

The treatment itself takes only 15 to 30 minutes and involves injecting the Juvederm into the dermis with a very fine needle, typically only a few millimetres beneath the surface of the skin. The process is usually painless although an aesthetic may sometimes be used for increased comfort. In the hours following injection, small red marks or slight swelling may appear temporarily. The beneficial results are visible immediately and last around 6 to 9 months as the Juvederm is absorbed naturally over time.

To maintain the benefits simply pop into see Ms Kavouni about once a year and pamper yourself with a quick Juvederm makeover.

Being naturally-based and biocompatible, Juvederm is very safe.
