The secret to getting those pouty lips is through the use of injectable filler procedures; these are classified as a non-surgical procedure for the purpose of adding volume to specific areas of the face. Administered via injection directly into the problem area, dermal fillers are composed of biocompatible substances that stay beneath the skin until the body eventually breaks it down over time. Dermal fillers are not meant to be a permanent procedure but they do last a very long time. Studies have shown that results for some can last for four months where others may see results that last as long as a year. They are primarily used as an anti-aging tool in order to add volume as well as to give the skin a much smoother appearance while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure can be done on almost any area of the face and is most commonly applied to the cheeks, chin, between the eyebrows, on the outside corners of the eyes and the areas between the nose and mouth. In many cases, they are used to plump the lips and the cheeks so as to restore depleted volume and to give added contour
One important thing you need to know about dermal fillers is that it is very much different from how Botox® works. Botox® works by freezing or relaxing the muscles in order to minimize and reduce wrinkles on the face. Dermal fillers smooth out skin by filling wrinkles. Both Botox® and dermal fillers are awesome ways to make you look young and gorgeous. In the past, collagen was used as filler but today, fillers commonly use hyaluronic acid, naturally found in the skin. Due to its ability to keep moisture, hyaluronic acid gives the skin a plump, hydrated appearance. Topically, it is used as a moisturizer but a serum or cream cannot bring back the lost volume and only an injectable version of hyaluronic acid can. Once administered, it can add that much needed natural plump look or simply replenish the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid as it weakens as you get older.
At Beautox Bar, we can provide you with the best dermal filler available in the market today. A single injection can make skin look plumper and smoother for a year and more.
Our injectable JUVÉDERM® hyaluronic acid based dermal filler can instantly add volume and decrease wrinkles with just a single session. Results can last a long time and varies depending on the site of injection. JUVÉDERM® injections can also stimulate better collagen production that leads to a fresher and younger looking skin in the long term.
In the past, filler was usually injected into the nasolabial folds or the laugh lines in order to fill the wrinkles directly. However, methods have changed over the years to create a more natural and younger looking face. The objective is to plump and lift other parts of the face to achieve a much younger and fresher appearance. The reason for this is as we age, the bones get thinner, and the overlying fat pads slide down. This makes the skin sag lower, resulting in deeper folds at the base of the cheeks. The trick is to inject near the cheekbone in order to restore a natural fullness that lifts the face while also minimizing the appearance of smile lines as well.
At Beautox Bar, our team of certified and experienced registered nurses is trained to expertly administer JUVÉDERM® with the best results. We believe that injection is an art and we have meticulously honed our skills over the years, employing only the best and most up-to-date methods to give you the most natural-looking face that is simply the best version of you.
When it comes to JUVÉDERM® injections there is no real need to test it prior to administration as the product does not cause any serious allergic reactions due to its non-animal origin and an excellent degree of compatibility with the body. It is completely safe and it can be used in conjunction with other medications or treatments.
Getting JUVÉDERM® injections is very convenient as the process is similar to other injectable treatments. The nurse applies an anesthetizing cream to the skin in order to begin the process and is usually lidocaine to help relieve any discomfort from the procedure. This is excellent for relaxing the muscles also so that the entire procedure can be carried out much faster.
Unlike surgical procedures, JUVÉDERM® is reversible. Hyaluronicacid fillers breakdown over time and are completely biodegradable.
Some treatments are resistant when it comes to severe wrinkles. With JUVÉDERM® you can get rid of those pesky signs of aging to regain a rosy youthful look once more.
Prior to getting JUVÉDERM® injections we’ll talk to you to learn about your cosmetic goals and expectations. This is important as we want to be completely sure about what areas you want us to target and to also give you an idea of what happens during and after treatment. JUVÉDERM® procedures are considered to be minimally invasive procedures and therefore are frequently done on the same day as the consultation. Some simple instructions to know before you consult and have your treatment with us are avoidance of medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen and St. John’s Wort. We also not recommend that you take alcohol in the weeks leading up to the treatment. Smoking is also discouraged prior to treatment as avoidance of these can help minimize if avoid bruising completely. Do also let us know of any allergies or sensitivities you might have.
Aside from what is already mentioned above such as the avoidance of certain drugs and other medications and herbal supplements we recommend that you eat a good meal prior to treatment as afterwards you will be required to wait at least several hours before eating again. The reason for this is to ensure that the injection properly integrates to your connective tissue.
Once the JUVÉDERM® injections are completed you can get back to your daily routine but it is recommended that you avoid alcohol consumption for at least 24 hours after the procedure, avoid engaging in strenuous activities for the rest of the day, do not rub the treatment area for at least 24 hours after the procedure and stat out of the sun for at least 2 days. If there is some swelling on the area, you can apply some cold compress to relieve it. Most patients see the results of JUVÉDERM® immediately or when the swelling subsides. Results can last somewhere between six months and up to 1 year depending on the area and type of JUVÉDERM® product used.
You can expect some minor swelling and bruising on the area. Other side effects are: redness, tenderness, lumps or bumps, some itching and minor pain. All of these will subside within two to four weeks. More serious side effects are rare but is mostly attributed to unprofessional handling such as injecting JUVÉDERM® into a blood vessel accidentally. Complications may include scarring, vision problems, blindness and stroke. This is the reason why you should only entrust your JUVÉDERM® injections to professionals. Here at Beautox Bar, all our staff are certified and licensed with the necessary skills and experience to perform the procedure correctly and safely.
