Hyaluronic Acid: The Fountain of Youth in a Syringe

Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our skin, is key in maintaining moisture and suppleness. When you’re young, the hyaluronic acid molecules in your skin bind to water molecules, making your skin look soft and plump. But as you grow older, your skin’s HA levels decline, leading to wrinkles and loss of volume. Dr. Schalit offers personalized Juvéderm fillers, which are basically synthetic hyaluronic acid in a syringe, to restore a youthful appearance.

About Juvéderm

Juvéderm is a renowned line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. These FDA-approved injectables are designed to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns, from smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to restoring volume and enhancing facial contours. The key ingredient in Juvéderm fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the skin that holds moisture and provides elasticity. Juvéderm products come in various formulations, each specifically designed for different treatment areas and goals.

Juvéderm fillers work by replenishing lost hyaluronic acid. During the treatment, the provider injects the gel-like substance into targeted areas with a fine needle. The HA molecules attract and bind water, instantly plumping the treated area and smoothing wrinkles. Juvéderm’s versatility allows it to address various cosmetic concerns, such as lip augmentation, cheek enhancement, and marionette line reduction. The procedure is minimally invasive, with little to no downtime, and offers instant results.

The Complete Juvéderm Process

Preparation Guidelines:

  • Schedule a consultation with Dr. Schalit to discuss your goals and concerns.
  • Refrain from blood-thinning medications, supplements, or alcohol for several days.
  • Inform your provider about your medical history, including allergies and past treatments.
  • Minimize sun exposure and tanning to reduce the risk of bruising.
  • Arrange for transportation to and from the appointment.
  • Adhere to any specific pre-procedure instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
  • Avoid using topical products on the treatment area on the day of the procedure.
  • Maintain proper hydration levels to support the healing process.
  • Arrive at the appointment without makeup on the treatment area.

The Juvéderm Treatment

During your Juvéderm session, Dr. Schalit will begin by cleansing and potentially numbing the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Next, using a fine needle or cannula, he will carefully inject the chosen Juvéderm filler(s) into the targeted areas, such as wrinkles, lips, or cheeks. The procedure typically takes about 15-60 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment, and you can expect to see immediate results.

Aftercare Guidelines:

  • Apply ice or a cold pack to reduce swelling and discomfort.
  • Refrain from touching or massaging the treated area.
  • Protect the treated area from excessive sun exposure and use sunscreen.
  • Continue to avoid blood-thinning medications, supplements, or alcohol.
  • Drink plenty of water to help with the healing process.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and activities that could increase bleeding.
  • Contact your provider if you experience unusual side effects.
  • Schedule and attend any recommended follow-up appointments.

The Recovery Process

After your Juvéderm treatment, you may experience side effects like swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. These usually subside within a few days to a week. Downtime is minimal, and most people can return to their daily activities immediately. You’ll start to notice the results right away, with the full effects becoming more apparent as any initial swelling subsides. The final results last 6 to 24 months, depending on the chosen filler(s) and treatment areas.
