Juvederm Dermal Fillers
Juvederm is one of the most well-known dermal fillers in Canada, due to its effect, safety and lasting results. Juvederm dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), consequently mirroring that from the human body. It is allergy free, suitable for all skin types, and requires no pre-treatment skin test.
Hyaluronic acid exists in the skin tissue, and helps to hydrate and add volume. It softens wrinkles and lines (such as the nasolabial folds), and gently enhances lips, cheeks and jowls.
Juvederm injection is one of the fastest growing non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world, also one of the most commonly performed at Q Esthetics. Juvederm is FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Some Juvederm fillers contain a small amount of local anaesthetic, making the injection a uniquely gentle procedure, while other fillers can be more robust, ideal for deeper wrinkles and folds. It also lasts a bit longer. During the procedure, Juvederm are precisely injected into the treated areas with a very fine needle.
Areas treated with Juvederm dermal fillers
Juvederm dermal fillers smooth unwanted lines, restore natural contours and enhance lips to give you a smooth, natural and refreshed-looking appearance.
The most appropriate lines to treat with Juvederm dermal fillers are those that are described as static—the lines you can see when your face is still. Juvederm dermal fillers can also be used to enhance, or “plump up”, your lips, for soft, subtle results that leave you looking your best.
