You want to look younger. You want to feel more confident. You don’t want to keep wasting time and money on ineffective over-the-counter creams and ointments. Our aesthetic experts at Doctors Med Spa in Little Rock, AR are proud to offer many anti-aging treatments, such as Juvederm, to help you restore your youthful countenance. Here’s what you need to know.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvederm Treatments?
To find out if you’re a good candidate for Juvederm, you need to come in for an initial consultation. At this time, we will gain an understanding of your aesthetic goals and learn about your medical history and current health. Until you come in for your initial consultation, there are some things you should consider:
You’re Unhappy About the Appearance of Your Cheeks
You will probably be considered an excellent candidate for Voluma XC if you want to volumize and lift your cheeks without undergoing an invasive cheek lift. Be advised, the “XC” at the end of the formula name indicates the presence of lidocaine, an injectable numbing agent.
Since the needles used to administer treatment are so thin, you don’t have to worry about any pain during your anti-aging treatment session. A few seconds after the first injection is administered, you won’t feel anything at all for the remainder of the treatment. Note, you may also be considered a good candidate for this treatment if you want to recontour your cheeks without undergoing an invasive cheek augmentation procedure.
You Wish Your Lips Were Fuller
If you wish your lips were filler, there is an excellent chance you will qualify for Juvederm Volbella XC. If you’re not keen on the idea of implanting silicone into your lips through an invasive procedure, this injectable is an ideal solution for you.
Additionally, you will probably be considered a good candidate for this filler if you want to volumize and moisturize your lips for approximately 12 months at a time. What’s great about Volbella is it isn’t just an ideal solution for volumizing lips. It is also FDA-approved to eliminate smile lines that form around the corners of the mouth.
You Want to Look Five Years Younger Two Weeks From Now
You may be a good candidate for Ultra XC if you want to volumize your lips and look five years younger in just a couple of weeks. After an invasive procedure, there is extensive swelling that lasts for months. Unfortunately, you can’t enjoy the final results of your procedure until this swelling has gone down.
With Ultra XC, you will see an immediate improvement in local volumization and hydration. After that, the results will continue to improve over the course of 10 to 14 days as the filler spreads throughout the treatment areas and settles in. Note, Ultra XC is FDA-approved to add subtle volume to the lips and treat deep, vertical nasolabial folds running between the nose and mouth.
You’re Fairly Healthy
Since Juvederm is a non-invasive treatment, it is appropriate for almost everyone who is at least 22 years of age. That said, it is still important to be fairly healthy when you receive this treatment.
For instance, to be considered an ideal candidate for this treatment, you should be free from neurological diseases, have no allergies to local anesthetics, and not have a history of keloid scarring. Additionally, you should be healthy enough to stop taking certain drugs and supplements, such as NSAIDs and MAOIs.
You Aren’t Pregnant
There isn’t enough research on the effects of hyaluronic acid injections on the development of a fetus for this treatment to have FDA approval for pregnant women. Additionally, there isn’t an adequate body of research regarding whether this treatment will affect breastfeeding infants.
Therefore, you should not be pregnant or breastfeeding to qualify for this treatment. If you’ve been trying to become pregnant recently and are not menstruating, take a pregnancy test before considering this safe, effective anti-aging treatment.
You Can Follow All Preparation Instructions
During your initial consultation, you will receive a comprehensive set of guidelines to follow to prepare for your treatment. As noted above, you should refrain from taking certain drugs and supplements, such as NSAIDs for several days before your session. Additionally, you should refrain from consuming tobacco products, alcohol, excessive levels of caffeine, and excessive amounts of sodium.
Furthermore, it is very important that your skin is free from irritation on the day of your scheduled injections. We strongly advise wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen for two weeks before your session to ensure your skin is not irritated from sun damage on the day of your appointment. Furthermore, you should take an antiviral for several days before your session if you have a history of viral skin infections.
