JUVÉDERM® is a bio-compatible and FDA-approved gel of smooth consistency made of hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring acid in your body) that adds hydration, lift, and volume to prominent facial areas providing rejuvenation and a refreshed, younger appearance. Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, allergy testing is not required. It is injected into the mid to deep dermis with a fine needle by Dr. Ramachandran, which will result in additional volume and lift to the treated area(s).
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles, fine lines and folds form. JUVÉDERM® is one of the dermal fillers we use at Bonney Lake Medical to help treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and restore a smoother appearance to the face. Its smooth consistency also makes it a perfect choice to plump and augment the lips as it is stable and safe, and the longest lasting filler for lip augmentation. Based on the desired correction, JUVÉDERM® is also useful for adding contour to cheeks and other prominent facial areas.
Typical treatments last approximately 30 minutes. For your comfort, we can also provide topical numbing cream to help reduce the discomfort of the injection. Please add 15 minutes to your appointment time if you would like to have topical numbing as part of your treatment. We offer this additional service free of charge as a courtesy to our patients.
Patients often find that after treatment with dermal filler they look more rested, more rejuvenated and often their friends and co-workers notice their “back from vacation” look.
