Serving the St. George, UT Area
Many of our patients in St. George, UT get rid of the visible signs of aging on their faces through Juvéderm®. This dermal filler can be obtained at Riverside Medical Arts where we help patients restore their youthful glow and confidence.
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is an injectable dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in the body responsible for keeping the skin hydrated and rejuvenated. The dermal filler is made of a smooth consistency gel that is used to correct moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles. It is also effective as a treatment for nasolabial folds, or the lines found in between the corners of the nose and mouth. Another purpose of Juvéderm® is to plump thin lips during lip augmentation (off label use).
What can Juvéderm® treat?
This type of dermal filler is administered to smooth unwanted facial lines and folds and restore the natural contours of the cheeks, giving the individual a more refreshed and youthful appearance. This filler can soften smile lines, provide volume to the cheeks, enhance the size and improve the shape of the lips as well as contour the jaw line. It is the ideal option for the treatment of static lines, or the lines that are visible when the face is still. We can smooth the profile of the nose (off label use), fill deflated earlobes and hands (also an off label use).
What can I expect during my Juvéderm® session?
The procedure usually takes 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the areas you wish to get treated. Our facility focuses patient safety and does the procedure safely and effectively. The treatment is delivered by injecting a fine needle into the skin. While the smooth gel directly flows into the affected skin, immediate improvement in the integrity of the area may already be noticed. Most of our patients in St. George report tolerable discomfort during the injections, yet Juvéderm® comes with pain-reducing anesthetic called lidocaine to promote a comfortable experience.
When can I notice the results of my Juvéderm® treatment?
Results from your dermal filler procedure are immediately noticed in the treatment areas. Most of our patients only need one session to achieve maximum results, yet touch-up treatments are an option for those who want to achieve and maintain their desired appearance. The treatment requires little to no downtime and most patients are already able to return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure.
