Many identify facial fullness as a sign of youthfulness and health. With the passage of time, stress, and environmental factors, our faces become less voluminous as our natural collagen is depleted. This results in the gradual appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and a thinning of the lips. Both men and women who are looking for a fresh-faced, vibrant look can benefit from treatment with BOTOX® injections or JUVÉDERM® facial fillers in Hinsdale.
What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is an injectable cosmetic filler composed primarily of hyaluronic acid. It is one of the leading non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, making adverse reactions to JUVÉDERM® a rare occurrence. At Dentistry & Aesthetics by Design, we recommend different formulations of JUVÉDERM® depending on the area of the face that the patient wants to address.
The JUVÉDERM® formulas we offer include:
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
- JUVÉDERM® Volbella XC
What to Expect From the Process
The process begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Morgan. Men and women who visit our office have different expectations from the process, unique facial features, and cosmetic goals that are entirely their own. This is the perfect time to discuss your short and long-term aesthetic aspirations, concerns, and questions with our doctor.
Receiving Your Injections
With your goals in mind, Dr. Morgan will make recommendations in terms of BOTOX® or JUVÉDERM® solution(s), ideal injection sites, and how much of either treatment will be needed to help you achieve your desired look. Anesthetic cream will be applied and injection site(s) will be marked. Be aware that the degree of discomfort reported by patients varies by the individual, the amount of injections received, and the area(s) addressed.
Avoid vigorous exercise, alcohol, and excessive sun or heat for two days after your facial fillers in Hinsdale. An ice pack wrapped in a clean towel can be applied to the affected area to reduce the possibility of bruising. If you need to take pain medication (because of your injections or another reason), reach for acetaminophen, as it is less likely to contribute to bruising.
How Long Do the Effects of JUVÉDERM® Last?
You will begin to see the results of your injections immediately after your appointment. Final results are typically seen near the two-week mark. Many patients see continual improvements because of the stimulating effect the treatment has on natural collagen production. Facial fillers can last anywhere from 6-24 months, depending on the type and treatment area. We can provide personalized estimates during your consultation.
