How Juvederm® Works
As we age, soft tissue lying just beneath the skin is reduced, resulting in a loss of plumpness and causing deeper wrinkles and furrows. Dermal fillers are products that are placed into these deeper wrinkles and furrows, restoring lost volume and helping you look younger and more refreshed.
The Kanata Skin Clinic uses exclusively the Juvederm® suite of products. All of these products are made of Hyaluronic Acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in the skin. Juvederm® combines with the water in your skin to gently restore lost fullness, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and subtly enhance lips.
Frequently Asked Questions
+ Will people know that I've had something done? Will I look weird or "fake"?
How natural the result appears depends on the results you want and the skill of the injector.
Dr. Hegmann prefers to take a conservative approach when it comes to dermal fillers. His goal is always to achieve results that look completely natural. So that when people look at you, they just see you - only slightly younger and more refreshed.
And Dr. Hegmann is continually refining and upgrading his skills in order to stay up-to-date on the most current techniques - so you will get the most natural-looking results possible .
+ How long will it take to see the results?
You will see an improvement immediately after the procedure. However, it usually takes about two weeks to see the final result.
+ What will I look like afterwards? Is there any downtime?
Immediately after the procedure, there will be some swelling and redness in the area. This will usually resolve within a day or two. There may also be some bruising in the area, especially if you are someone who bruises easily. This should resolve within a week.
Some people prefer to book appointments at the end of the week, so they can take the weekend off, if they wish to.
+ Does it hurt?
Dermal fillers are inserted under the skin by injection, and every injection hurts to some degree. However, there are certain steps that can be taken to minimize this discomfort. For example, Dr. Hegmann applies a numbing cream before the treatment, which significantly reduces the discomfort. Also, Juvederm® now includes lidocaine, so the area is frozen as the treatment is carried®out.
The injector's skill and concern for the client's comfort can play a major role in the comfort of the treatment. If you are concerned about the pain involved, make sure you take the time to find an injector who places a high priority on patient comfort.
+ How much does it cost?
Juvederm® is priced per syringe used. Prices start at approx. $550 per syringe plus tax. Please keep in mind that clients often require more than one syringe to achieve the desired results. Dr. Hegmann will tell you how many syringes he recommends and provide an exact estimate at your initial consultation.
+ How long does it last?
Juvederm® is clinically proven to last 1 to 2 years, depending on the type of Juvederm® used and the area being treated. We have found that Juvederm® in areas where there is less facial movement, such as the cheeks and tear-trough, lasts longer than in areas where there is more movement, such as the lips and around the mouth.
+ Is it safe? Are there any Side Effects?
Dr. Hegmann uses only the Juvederm® suite of products, the #1 brand preferred by doctors world-wide. He uses them because they are FDA and Health Canada-approved, they have a long history on the market, and consequently, their safety profile is well-established.
Juvederm® is a gel consisting of Hyaluronic Acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in the skin.
Side effects are usually mild to moderate, lasting up to 7 days or less. They include temporary reactions at the injection-site, such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling or bumps.
Dermal fillers are not recommended for people with severe allergies. For more information about the safety of dermal fillers, please read: Juvederm Safety & Side Effects
