JUVÉDERM™

What is Juvéderm™ Injectable Gel? Juvéderm™ is a smooth gel filler that your doctor eases under your skin to instantly smooth those "parentheses" lines on the side of your nose and mouth. So smooth and natural, everyone will notice (but no one will know).

Dermal fillers smooth away "smile lines."As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. But, with Juvéderm™ injectable gel, you don't have to just sit back and let it happen! Recently approved by the FDA, Juvéderm™ is a “next-generation” dermal filler. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or “parentheses” (naso-labial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler. And, almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm™ and another dermal filler preferred Juvéderm™! In addition, Juvéderm™ is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

Benefits of JUVÉDERM™Juvederm at Fresh Vitality Med Spa

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvéderm™ injectable gel offer a safe and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. In fact, they are the fastest growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedure in the United States according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Here are some of the advantages of choosing Juvéderm™ injectable gel:

A "next-generation" filler: Juvéderm™ is a non-animal dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance that plays a vital role in hydrating your skin and replenishing its natural volume. No allergy skin tests are needed prior to receiving treatment.
Advanced technology for long-lasting results: Juvéderm™ employs its unique manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results. This advanced manufacturing process also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows consistently and easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel.
Proven safety and effectiveness: Juvéderm™ is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
Quick and easy procedure: Juvéderm™ is a nonsurgical physician-administered treatment that requires no allergy skin test and minimal recovery or downtime.
Personalized treatment: Juvéderm™ injectable gel is available in two formulations— Juvéderm™ Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus, a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. This allows us to tailor treatment to meet your unique needs. Click here for the Juvéderm™ Facial Assessment Tool.

How JUVÉDERM™ Works

We place Juvéderm™ under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis—the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis—to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm™ is used most effectively for those wrinkles and folds in the lower third of your face, like your "laugh lines," "smile lines" or "parentheses" (naso-labial folds), or "marionette lines" (oral commissures).

Juvéderm™ is a "next-generation" filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm™ injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.

By employing a unique manufacturing process, Juvéderm™ provides the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results. This advanced manufacturing process also works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin during the injection process and provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know!).

Is there any downtime?

Because Juvéderm™ injectable gel is a simple, nonsurgical treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. So you can make an appointment to stop by for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice—and get right back to your life.

Before your treatment:

It is best to avoid any medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), for at least a week prior to treatment in order to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Vitamin E, gingko biloba, and St. John's Wort should also be discontinued.

When you arrive:

If this is your first visit, we will ask about your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you may take, and will tell you more about wrinkle treatment with Juvéderm™. Juvéderm™ does not require an allergy test.

Determining your treatment needs:

We will examine the soft tissue of your face to assess the depth of wrinkles and folds to determine your treatment. Juvéderm™ injectable gel is available in two formulations—Juvéderm™ Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm™ Ultra Plus, a robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. This allows us to better tailor treatment to your unique needs.

Before the procedure:

Although anesthesia is not required, we may use topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.

The procedure:

We will place the Juvéderm™ gel under your skin to augment, or fill, wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, we gently massage the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy.

After the procedure:

With Juvéderm™, there is minimal recovery or downtime. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. After the treatment, some temporary injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. Studies have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period.

Seeing results:

You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results may last up to 6 months or more. However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental “touch up” treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.

RADIESSERadiesse at Fresh Vitality Med Spa

What is RADIESSE filler?

RADIESSE filler is a safe, next generation dermal filler that is aiming to become the new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles. Years of rigorous clinical studies prove that RADIESSE filler provides long lasting correction of smile lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It can also be used to replace volume in areas of the face that have begun to "drop" or where jowls have formed. RADIESSE filler is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure. RADIESSE filler treatments deliver a natural look that lasts.

How does RADIESSE filler work?

RADIESSE filler is gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. RADIESSE filler stimulates the body to produce new collagen. This unique response provides immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and provides long-lasting and beautiful results.

Is RADIESSE filler safe?

In years of rigorous clinical testing and use by physicians in hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide, RADIESSE filler has been shown to be safe and effective. In the FDA clinical studies there were virtually no allergic reactions. There may be some normal injection related occurrences, such as bruising, discomfort, swelling, or redness that typically resolve on their own.

Why "correct" wrinkles with RADIESSE filler?

Over time, tissue volume diminishes, leaving folds and wrinkles in several common patterns, including the deepening of naso-labial folds, accentuated smile lines (sometimes called "marionette lines"). RADIESSE filler can be injected into the skin in order to compensate for the loss of volume or to correct these areas. By stimulating the body to produce new collagen, RADIESSE filler provides a natural look that lasts for a fresh, rested, healthy appearance that still looks like you.

How is a RADIESSE treatment performed?

RADIESSE filler is injected into the skin through a simple, safe, quick, and minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Typically administered in a physician's office with the use of a local anesthetic, RADIESSE treatment requires little to no downtime, with most patients returning to normal activities almost immediately after treatment.

How soon can I expect results? How long will the results last?

The results are immediate. RADIESSE filler continues to deliver results as it stimulates your body to produce new collagen. Results may last a year or more in many patients, which may result in fewer office visits for re-treatments. Since results may vary, be sure to discuss your expectations with your doctor.

How many treatments will I need?

Many patients will achieve their desired result after just one or two treatments. To ensure your satisfaction with the treatment, your physician might schedule a follow-up visit, where a touch up treatment might be recommended.

How much does RADIESSE treatment cost?

Because RADIESSE treatment is customized for each patient, its cost varies. In general, the cost of RADIESSE filler is comparable to similar procedures. And because RADIESSE filler may require fewer offices visits for retreatment, you could save money and time. Consult your physician for a recommendation as to how RADIESSE filler can best meet your individual needs.

Are there any side effects?

Normal, injection-related reactions such as mild irritation, edema, swelling, itching, discoloration, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.

Could I have an allergic reaction to RADIESSE filler?

RADIESSE filler is biocompatible. You do not need to undergo skin allergy testing, which is common with certain animal-based or permanent filler agents, prior to treatment. However, if you believe you are having an allergic reaction to RADIESSE filler, seek medical attention immediately.

Is RADIESSE filler permanent?

No. Treatment results are long-lasting, but not permanent. Over time the tiny calcium-based microspheres gradually break down into calcium and phosphate ions which are safely and naturally absorbed into your body, leaving your own newly produced collagen in their place.
