Unhappy with the way aging has made you look? While aging and changes to the skin are natural, you may not appreciate the way they’ve changed your appearance. At Nunnally Dermatology in Baton Rouge, LA, our Juvederm Baton Rouge treatments can rejuvenate your face and help you feel more confident.
Does Juvederm Baton Rouge Work Immediately?
Some dermal fillers can take a while to kick in, but this is not one of them. Immediately after your appointment, you will see a change in the way your skin looks and feels as the filler takes up room under your skin.
Over the next week, as Juvederm Baton Rouge does its work, you’ll see the full results of your treatment.
What Causes Changes to the Skin?
Your skin is comprised of several important chemicals that help it maintain its structure, elasticity, and youthful fullness. This includes hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. When you’re young, you have generally high levels of these chemicals.
But when you get older, your skin stops being able to produce them as effectively, resulting in a loss of fullness and elasticity. And, when you lose these qualities, a combination of repeated facial movements and the effect of gravity can cause things like wrinkling and sagging.
What Is Juvederm Baton Rouge and What Does It Do?
This is a collection of dermal fillers that are injected into your skin using a fine and precise needle. The main ingredient in all of these fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar. Different formulas target different areas of your face.
When it’s injected into your skin, the hyaluronic acid will provide more fullness and help your skin stay hydrated by attracting moisture molecules. It also encourages your body to produce more collagen, which is one of the proteins that allow your skin to maintain its structure and stay elastic.
What Areas Does It Treat?
Also known as smile lines or laugh lines, nasolabial folds are the folds that run from the corners of your nose towards the corners of your mouth. Although they are often seen as a sign that someone has laughed or smiled a lot, not everyone appreciates the way they can age one’s face.
If you don’t like the way your nasolabial folds make you look, you can get this dermal filler for fast and effective results.
You may remember having large, round cheeks in your youth. As you’ve gotten older, however, your cheeks have likely shrunk in size, and you may even start to notice some hollowness in the area.
This filler can be used to target your cheeks and help them appear plump, round, and full. When you do this, you can also add more definition to your cheekbones.
As the skin on your cheeks becomes looser and gravity takes a stronger effect on you, you might notice jowls forming. If you’re not happy with how these make you look, there’s a Juvederm Baton Rouge formula for you.
When you use this filler to fill in your cheeks, you’ll also be lifting any sagging skin, which will help you get rid of jowls and strengthen the appearance of your jawline.
These folds run from the corners of your mouth down towards your chin. You probably don’t appreciate their appearance, as they can make you look far older than you are.
This filler can target the area and help you look much younger.
Your lips are one of the most prominent parts of your face, so they will drastically affect your overall appearance. If you have thin lips, you may end up looking very severe.
Thin lips can be a side effect of aging, a natural part of your genetics, or a combination of both. You can help your lips look youthful and full when you get injections of this dermal filler. It’s also a great option for anyone with uneven lips who would like the help them look more symmetrical.
I Want to Get Treatment—What Happens?
Before Your Appointment
If you decide to choose our clinic to get your injections of this filler, we know that you are putting a lot of trust into us, and we will work to make sure your experience is the best it can be. Before you come for your appointment, we’ll make sure you understand how to prepare your skin for the best results.
To avoid potential bruising around the injection sites, we will ask that for the day or two before your appointment, you avoid alcohol and tobacco. We’ll also request that avoid things like Advil and fish oil for the same reason.
You can expect your treatment to be safe and effective when you visit us. To begin, we’ll carefully clean your skin to prevent any bacteria from entering the injection sites, and then we’ll mark the areas where you’ll be getting treatment.
A very fine needle will be used to apply the injections, and treatment will be pain-free and comfortable. We’ll apply small amounts of the filler at a time to ensure accuracy. The entire treatment process is fast and should take less than an hour to complete.
Immediately after your treatment is complete, you’ll be able to leave our clinic and get back to your life. There is no downtime necessary, and there are just a few things you’ll need to do to help your skin heal. We’ll provide you with full instructions.
For example, for the next couple of days, we will ask that you not perform any strenuous physical activity or do anything that could make you sweat excessively. You should also continue avoiding alcohol and smoking during this time. Stay out of direct sunlight, as your skin will be more sensitive and prone to burning.
What Else Do I Need to Know?
You don’t need to be concerned about the safety of this filler. It’s made with an ingredient that is already naturally present in your skin, and that your skin actually needs to stay healthy.
As long as you visit a reputable clinic like ours, you can expect the treatment to be very safe as well as effective.
Your Results Will Last a Long Time
There’s no dermal filler that can provide permanent results, but there are certainly some that last longer than others. This is one of them. You can expect results to last between one to two years.
There are some situations where a person may only want short-term results, like if they’re uncertain about how they’ll look once treatment is complete. In cases like these, it makes sense to look for something that will fade faster. But if you know what results you want and you want them for a long time, this is the filler for you.
Results Will Look Natural
Dealing with awkward questions about whether you’ve had work done might be something you’re keen to avoid. Many others avoid getting cosmetic treatments for this exact reason.
You don’t have to worry when you get this filler. We can make your results look as subtle or as dramatic as you would like with our fully customizable treatment plan.
You Can Reverse Your Results
If you get treatment and decide down the line that you don’t like how your results look, you don’t need to wait for them to fade on their own.
We can easily partially or completely remove your results by injecting a completely safe enzyme called hyaluronidase.
If you are looking for permanent results, then surgery might be the right option for you. But you should understand that surgery can be highly invasive, and that’s not something everyone is comfortable with.
This injectable offers a long-lasting but non-invasive solution so you can get the appearance you want without having to deal with the risks options like surgeries carry.
Almost Anyone Can Get It
Most people who are in general good health and not currently experiencing any skin conditions are good candidates for this dermal filler. If you don’t like the way aging has changed your appearance and you want younger-looking skin again, you are a great candidate for this filler.
