Everyone ages at a different pace, but sooner or later, wrinkles appear and loss of volume makes cheeks seem to sag. If you’re ready to turn back time, Juvéderm® dermal fillers produce immediate results. Marcea Wiggins, ND, and the team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness can customize your treatment with a variety of Juvéderm products that smooth away moderate-to-severe wrinkles, lift your cheeks, and enhance your lips. To schedule an appointment, call the office in Portland, Oregon, or book an appointment online.
Juvéderm is a group of injectable dermal fillers that all contain hyaluronic acid in a gel base. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in your skin, where it binds with moisture and is essential for hydrating skin.
When dermal fillers are injected under your skin — either below a wrinkle or in an area where you want to restore volume — they immediately plump up the area. As a result, cheeks are lifted, lips become fuller, and wrinkles are softened and diminished.
The team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness offers a variety of Juvéderm products, so they can individualize your treatment. Here are a few examples:
Juvéderm corrects moderate-to-severe wrinkles around your mouth and nose, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Nasolabial folds (laugh lines) run from each side of your nose to the corners of your mouth, while marionette lines run from the corners of your mouth down toward your chin.
This Juvéderm product is specially made to augment your lips and to correct lipstick lines. As the team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness uses an ultra-fine needle to inject Volbella XC, your lips plump up and fine wrinkles around your lips are softened.
Voluma targets age-related midface volume loss, which refers to your cheeks. Carefully placed injections of Voluma lift and contour your cheeks.
Juvéderm’s XC products contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic that reduces pain during the injection. However, prior to your treatment, you’ll talk with your provider at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness about whether you’d like a topical numbing cream
Your Juvéderm session takes 15-60 minutes, depending on the area of your face being treated. Some patients experience mild-to-moderate side effects at the injection sites, such as redness and swelling. You can get back to your normal routine when your injections are finished, but you should avoid strenuous exercise and exposure to sunlight for the first 24 hours.
The best thing about injectable dermal fillers like Juvedérm is that they produce immediate results. Your results last up to one year with most products, except Voluma, which lifts your cheeks for up to two years.*
For the team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness, injecting is an art form, and they’re passionate about ensuring you look natural — refreshed and rejuvenated, not overdone. To learn more about the benefits of Juvéderm dermal fillers, call SANTÉ or book an appointment online.
