Let Dr. Lee Talk with You About Juvederm Today! Proudly Serving the Little Rock, AR Area.
Smoothing out wrinkles doesn’t have to be a long, involved process. If you want to reverse the signs of aging around your face, but you don’t want to have an invasive procedure like a face lift, or risk the pain and discomfort of a chemical peel, you could look into getting a dermal injection.
Dermal injections are a safe and effective way to even out wrinkles and smooth your face without using harsh chemicals or surgery. Juvederm is a leader in the dermal injection industry and Dr. Lee is proud to offer it to her patients.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a part of a family of dermal fillers that target the causes of wrinkles and works hard to fix them at their source. Typical sessions last less than an hour, feature no downtime and results can last up to an entire year. Juvederm® is great for:
- Nasolabial folds (the lines from the nose to the mouth)
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- And more
Juvederm® is a Hyaluronic Acid-based gel formula that instantly bonds to the skin to even out wrinkles and tone the face. This gel is different than most dermal fillers because it features a smoother more malleable gel. The Hyaluronic Acid within the gel retains water better, which allows for more cushion and better bounce within the skin. It also means the results are faster acting, and longer lasting. It’s not surprising if it takes only one session for you to see noticeable results.
What is Treatment Like?
Like most dermal fillers, the treatment process lasts under an hour, features very little pain, and can last as long as an entire year.
The process starts with your initial consultation. You will sit down with Dr. Lee or a member of our medical team and discuss your beauty goals. This includes where your problem areas are, what you’re hoping to look like in the future and how much work you want done. We will also discuss any medication you’re taking and what steps you can take beforehand to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
As for the treatment itself, the number one concern is whether or not the procedure will hurt. Every dose of Juvederm® comes with Lidocaine, a pain-killing anesthetic which should help make the process much more comfortable. Patients describe feeling a slight prick when the needle hits the skin, and not much else. The time of each treatment differs based on your beauty needs, but they rarely take longer than 30 – 45 minutes.
Once treatment is completed, you’ll be given some tips on maintaining your injections. Juvederm® features no downtime, but there are some short-term side effects.
