How does Juvederm work?

As we age, the hyaluronic acid in our body decreases, causing skin volume to decrease and wrinkles to occur. Juvederm is a gel that contains hyaluronic acid, which is a natural polysaccharide (sugar molecule) that occurs in the body. As we age, the hyaluron in our body—which provides strength and hydration—decreases, which means that skin volume decreases and wrinkles occur.

When Juvederm is injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules. Since each molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, using Juvederm can create plump, youthful looking skin and lips. Juvederm is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism, and disappears without any residue.

What are the advantages of Juvederm?

While some fillers have a granular consistency, Juvederm products are manufactured using a unique Hylacross™ technology that cross-links molecules and creates a smooth, more moldable gel. As a result, wrinkles and folds injected with Juvederm will have a very smooth and natural appearance. 

Juvederm treatments

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. 

Juvederm candidates

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.
