If you are considering getting a JUVÉDERM® filler treatment in our RI office, it is natural to feel a little anxious. While our caring and attentive staff at SeaMist MedSpa will provide you with the best care possible, arming yourself with knowledge will help allay your fears.
What Makes JUVÉDERM® Effective?
This treatment is a filler made up of Hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural ingredient found in our skin. The dermis, which is the second layer of our skin, is 40% HA. It is responsible for providing critical lubrication to our joints and skin.
Is JUVÉDERM® Only Used as a Lip Filler?
You can receive JUVÉDERM® treatments for multiple reasons, including wrinkles and fine lines. You can also treat acne scars or sagging skin as well. If you want to contour your nose without an invasive procedure, then this treatment may be an ideal option.
Does JUVÉDERM® Hurt?
New patients are often worried about the pain associated with the treatment. While JUVÉDERM® treatment can cause some discomfort, we can mitigate this. We can apply local anesthesia to make your treatment comfortable for you. Talk to our staff about our pain management options.
Is There Any Downtime?
While JUVÉDERM® is a minimally-invasive procedure, you may not want to do a much-anticipated sales presentation right afterward. Most patients would prefer not to have the general public see them slightly bruised and a little bumpy. Give yourself about two weeks to recover from the aftereffects of your treatment.
How Long Will the Fillers Last?
The long-term results of your treatment depends on where you receive your injections, the dose, and how your body metabolizes the fillers. Though we can not predict exactly how long it will last, it usually lasts about six months to a year. Our highly trained staff can provide more information depending on these factors.
JUVÉDERM® treatment is excellent for conditions such as sagging skin, wrinkles and lines, acne scars, and loss of volume. Our certified staff at SeaMist MedSpa in South Kingstown, RI will answer all your questions and ensure you are comfortable before, during, and after your treatment.
