Juvederm® Procedure

Dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in the body. There is no allergy test requirement, and therefore no waiting period, before treatment with fillers. Because of its biocompatibility, they bind to water easily, in effect, drawing moisture into the treated areas to fill in wrinkles or creases, or increase the overall volume by providing a full, supple appearance. Fillers may also be used to contour and enhance the lower eyelids, or the cheek and jowl area to mimic a more invasive procedure such as the facelift and eyelid surgery. Dermal fillers are often combined with wrinkle relaxers such as Botox for a rejuvenated look.

The doctors at Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute Institute will administer a topical anesthesia to maximize comfort throughout the procedure, which usually takes less than thirty minutes. The injections themselves are made with an ultra-fine needle into the target areas. Results are immediate, and a majority of patients say they are able to return to their daily routines immediately.

Dermal Fillers Recovery

There is a low potential for side effects. Some patients experience side effects such as swelling at the treatment site which typically recedes within 24 hours, or bruising, which should resolve within 7-10 days. While there have been a few reports of hypersensitivity, incidence of these reactions is so low the FDA does not require skin tests for patients before the procedure is performed.
