What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a collection of injectable dermal fillers with a hyaluronic acid base and is meant to restore volume to different parts of the face. There are many varieties of Juvederm fillers, each formulated to have the most optimum effect on a specific facial feature.
In Astique, we use the Juvederm fillers to help with these areas:
How does the treatment work?
As the natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases as a person ages, the skin will start to lose its volume and the appearances of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin becomes increasingly apparent.
To address this problem, Juvederm dermal fillers are injected to specific areas of the face to supplement the skin with additional amounts of hyaluronic acid, stimulating collagen production in the treatment area, which, in turn, increases skin volume. The treatment area will be numbed prior to the injection to minimise any discomfort to the patient.
As the effects of Voluma and Volux will last up to 2 years while other Juvederm dermal fillers will last up to 1 year, it is recommended for patients to follow-up with our doctors in Astique for subsequent injections to maintain the effects of the treatment.
How long does each session take?
Depending on the area of treatment, each session may take between 40 to 60 minutes.
Is it painful? Is there any downtime?
As we numb the treatment area prior to the injection, there will be minimal discomfort in the injection areas. There is also minimal downtime to the treatment.
Is it safe?
The Juvederm filler treatment is a very safe treatment in the hands of trained professionals. Nevertheless, we recommend you to get a proper assessment done with our doctors prior to the treatment.
Am I suitable for this treatment?
The Juvederm filler treatment is suitable for all skin types. However, if you have a relevant allergy or if you are unsure if there are any other concerns that might affect your suitability for the treatment, do consult our doctors.
Can I undergo other cosmetic treatments if I am already undergoing this treatment?
Yes! However there are certain treatments which we will not recommend you continue immediately post-filler treatments. Do seek consultation with our doctors for more information on which treatments are contraindicated.
