Juvederm is administered using a fine needle, and contains lidocaine to numb the area and make the injections more comfortable. When choosing a Juvederm provider, it’s extremely important to select a medical professional with the training and experience to inject fillers in a way that flatters your face and does not look overdone. Dr. Tansavatdi is a facial surgeon who specializes in this area and had published articles about dermal fillers, and is an expert in this field. She understands the intricate muscles of the face, as well as the way skin and fillers work together to improve each patient’s specific appearance.
If you’re interested in Juvederm in the Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village area, you may be an ideal candidate. Patients must be in good health, have reasonable expectations for the procedure, and be over 21 years of age. Juvederm cannot be used if you have a bleeding disorder, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding. If you have a skin infection (such as a cold sore, pimple, or rash), you must wait until it is healed. Let Dr. Tansavatdi know if you are allergic to gram-positive bacterial proteins or to lidocaine. During the week before your procedure, you must avoid taking medications and supplements that prolong bleeding.
