Over time, the effects of aging can diminish our once youthful glow, leaving us with an aging appearance. While many aspire to have the stunning cheekbones of a model, looking gaunt or sunken is far from desirable. If you’re facing a loss of facial volume due to the natural aging process, Marielaina Perrone, DDS, in Henderson, NV, has the perfect solution for you. Experience the transformative power of Juvederm treatments, specifically designed to restore and enhance facial volume.
Say Goodbye to Wrinkles and Hello to Smooth Skin
After just a few hours of receiving their first treatment, most of our patients witness an immediate and noticeable enhancement in their overall appearance. Juvederm dermal fillers can deliver impressive outcomes, including increased facial volume, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tightness, and a smoother overall look. While the initial results are remarkable, they only give a small picture of the ultimate transformation.
Introducing fresh moisture through the newly injected fillers instantly revitalizes your skin, but these initial rejuvenation gradually fades as the filler settles further into your skin. However, within a few weeks, and sometimes as soon as 14 days following your appointment, you will witness the complete results of your treatment. These results will showcase the full extent of the improvements achieved.
How Does It Work?
Like other dermal fillers, our Juvederm treatment involves precise administration with a fine needle. Dr. Perrone, who has received comprehensive training, will perform multiple small injections in the specific treatment area. Once injected beneath the skin, Juvederm initiates a volumizing effect by providing structural support. This versatile treatment addresses various age-related concerns, including sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, sunken or hollow cheeks, and loss of fullness in the cheeks, jawline, or chin.
Furthermore, this treatment can be used for facial contouring, such as reshaping the nose. Its thicker hyaluronic acid formula lets it settle more deeply beneath the skin’s surface, making it exceptionally versatile.
What Does Hyaluronic Acid Do?
Most dermal fillers in the market utilize hyaluronic acid as their primary ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is a renowned humectant for its ability to retain moisture and restore volume to the skin’s surface, effectively reducing visible signs of aging.
In addition to its moisture-retaining properties, this remarkable molecule also supports other essential components that nourish the skin. For instance, studies have demonstrated that increased levels of hyaluronic acid can stimulate collagen production in the body. When hyaluronic acid is directly injected into the skin, it triggers a response from the body, leading to enhanced production of collagen as long as the hyaluronic acid remains present.
What To Expect?
Before your initial treatment, scheduling a consultation appointment with Marielaina Perrone, DDS, is important. During this consultation, she will discuss your specific skin concerns, aesthetic goals, and any relevant medical conditions. Understanding more about you allows us to explore suitable treatment options and select the best approach to help you achieve your desired results. Additionally, she will inquire about your current use of medications, supplements, and skincare products.
When you come in for your treatment appointment, please anticipate 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas to be treated. Before administering the injections, Dr. Perrone may apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. If you have any sensitivity concerns related to injections, you may consider taking an over-the-counter pain relief medication. While it is not typically necessary, if you choose to do so, we recommend taking OTC pain medication approximately one hour before your appointment.
Preparing For Your Appointment
Before your appointment, there is minimal preparation required on your part. During your consultation, we will provide you with a set of preventive measures for three to five days following your appointment. These measures are designed to ensure you are fully prepared and in the optimal condition to receive your dermal filler injections. For instance, if you are currently taking blood-thinning medications or supplements that may affect blood clotting, we may recommend temporarily discontinuing their use to minimize the risk of bruising.
If you are prone to bruising or swelling, we might suggest incorporating Arnica supplements into your routine. These supplements can aid in reducing the likelihood of swelling or bruising by expediting the body’s healing process.
Recovery And After Care
After receiving your Juvederm dermal fillers, you can expect little to no downtime and minimal aftercare requirements to achieve optimal results. Dr. Perrone will provide specific aftercare instructions for the treated area immediately following your treatment. These instructions typically cover guidelines on touching and washing your face, utilizing a cold compress (if necessary), and other essential care measures. Additionally, she will advise you to avoid activities that may lead to excessive heat or sweating, such as strenuous exercise, saunas, tanning beds, and hot water exposure.
Safeguarding your skin from sun exposure is crucial post-treatment. Ideally, it is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure altogether, as UV rays can potentially impact the distribution of the filler beneath the skin. If sun avoidance is not possible, applying appropriate sunscreen and considering wearing a wide-brimmed hat for added protection is imperative.
To optimize your aestheitc results, it is important to refrain from touching your face after your appointment. Avoid any rubbing, pinching, scrubbing, or massaging of the treated skin, and handle your face with care for the next 4 to 7 days. Giving the dermal filler sufficient time to settle into your skin is crucial, and unnecessary or aggressive touching of your face can disrupt this process. Additionally, it is advisable to steer clear of skincare products containing active ingredients, such as retinol, during this period. These active ingredients may be too harsh and can potentially cause skin irritation.
How Often Is Treatment Necessary?
To sustain your desired results, scheduling treatments at a frequency that suits your comfort level is recommended. Many patients find satisfaction in receiving treatments approximately once every 18 to 24 months, considering the duration for which the treatment results remain visible on their skin. Generally, the anticipated duration of results for this treatment is up to two years. Therefore, undergoing treatments every two years should suffice to achieve and maintain your desired outcome.
The expected longevity of results can vary depending on individual factors. Younger patients with milder aesthetic concerns often experience results that last longer than two years. However, for older patients who may be dealing with more pronounced skin laxity or wrinkles, scheduling treatments with a slightly higher frequency may be necessary.
Virtually anyone seeking to address the visible signs of aging through dermal fillers can be considered a suitable candidate for this treatment. To be eligible, you must be at least 21 or older. It is also important not to have any known allergies to the ingredients contained in the filler, and currently pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should abstain from the treatment. If you are uncertain about your eligibility for this specific treatment, our team of experts will assess your suitability during the initial consultation.
