As your skin ages, it loses volume and gains fine lines, which makes you look old. Your lips also lose their fullness over the years, resulting in a thinner look. Juvederm® treatments provide ways for you to regain skin volume and lip fullness while also minimizing fine lines. At Las Vegas Aesthetics, Thomas Pulice, PA-C offers Juvederm treatments for patients in Las Vegas, Nevada who want to have a more youthful appearance.
WHAT IS JUVERDERM?
Juvederm treatments are fillers that help boost volume in certain parts of your face, such as your cheeks and lips. These fillers can also reduce the appearance of fine lines around your lips and nose. Thomas Pulice, PA-C can discuss these treatment options with you to help you find the right Juvederm product for your skin or lips.
HOW DO JUVEDERM TREATMENTS WORKS?
Juvederm fillers contain gel made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural part of your skin that helps keep it healthy. Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin moist, adds volume to it, and brings nutrients to it. As you age, your body produces less of this acid, leading to a loss of skin softness and fullness. Juvederm treatments provide your skin and lips with hyaluronic acid to improve skin and lip volume.
WHICH JUVEDERM TREATMENT DO I NEED?
Thomas Pulice, PA-C will go over Juvederm treatment options with you and help you choose the right one for your needs. This depends on the kind of results you’re looking for and which areas of your face need treatment, such as your lips or cheeks.
Juvederm offers different treatments, including a treatment that targets your cheeks and adds volume to them. Other treatments add volume around your nose and mouth to minimize fine lines or add volume to make your lips plumper.
HOW LONG DO JUVEDERM TREATMENTS TAKE?
It depends on the type of treatment you’re having done and which part of your face Thomas Pulice, PA-C is treating. In general, Juvederm injections can take as little as 15 minutes or as long as 60 minutes per treatment session. He’ll let you know how long your treatments are expected to take.
DO JUVEDERM INJECTIONS HURT?
You might feel a mild pinch when Thomas Pulice, PA-C administers Juvederm injectables, but you shouldn’t have any serious pain. Certain Juvederm treatments have lidocaine in them, which helps reduce discomfort. If you’re concerned about pain, you can ask him about applying a topical numbing cream to lower your risk of discomfort.
HOW LONG DO JUVEDERM RESULTS LAST?
It shouldn’t take long for you to begin seeing results from your Juvederm treatment. In general, these treatments usually produce results that last one or two years, but results vary.
