Say goodbye to early signs of aging with Juvéderm® products
Every day our skin sustains damage through exposure to a variety of environmental pollutants as well as ultraviolet rays from the sun. In addition, as part of the natural aging process, our cells lose their ability to produce hyaluronic acid. These changes cause the skin to lose volume, which usually results in the formation of wrinkles and folds. However, cross-linked HA dermal fillers like Juvéderm® fillers can temporarily replace the hyaluronic acid that has been lost: Thus, restoring volume to the face and providing the patient with a smooth, natural-looking result.
Juvéderm® products consist of hyaluronic acid (HA) that naturally occurs in all living organisms. This compound absorbs more than 1,000 times its weight in water, which is why these products have the ability to add volume to the face. Additionally, HA binds with elastin and collagen and transports vital nutrients to these fibers. It is the combination of elastin, collagen, and HA that provides the skin’s structure, volume, and elasticity, which contributes to its overall appearance.
The patented manufacturing process that is used to develop Juvéderm® dermal fillers provides a shapeable, smooth gel that flows easily into the skin to create a soft, natural-looking result. Furthermore, for the comfort of the patient, the products that have an XC (the XC stands for Extra Comfort) in their name are enhanced with the anesthetic Lidocaine. Thus, ensuring the patient is as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

What Can I Expect During My Juvu00e9derm® Injection Treatment?
Your face will be cleansed, and the injection sites will be sanitized. Additionally, a topical anesthetic to numb the skin may be applied. Dr. Sadati and his professional aesthetic nurses want their patients to be comfortable throughout their dermal filler procedure; therefore, whenever possible, they use dermal fillers in conjunction with the numbing agent Lidocaine. Typically, the only time that he would opt for using a dermal filler without this numbing agent is when the patient is allergic to Lidocaine. A very fine needle will be used to inject the dermal filler into the targeted areas of the face. The areas of the face that are being targeted determine which Juvéderm® dermal filler product he chooses for the patient.
What will my Juvu00e9derm® Results be like?
Due to its ability to stimulate collagen production, when compared to some of the other dermal fillers and neurotoxins, the results achieved with Juvéderm® products last a significant amount of time. The longevity of the results depends greatly on the Juvéderm® product that is used.nnPatients should expect to experience tenderness, bruising and/or inflammation in the areas close to the injection sites. There is no downtime following dermal filler treatments at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery. In fact, many patients choose to return to work directly thereafter.nnHowever, there are a few things patients must know:nnExcessive facial expressions could diminish results; consequently, for several hours after treatment, these actions are discouraged.nFor approximately 12 hours after treatment, patients should not wear makeup or apply any other type of face cream unless recommended or provided by Dr. Kevin Sadati.nFor the first 24 hours following treatment, rubbing/massaging the treated areas is prohibited: This could cause the filler to move to other areas in the face.nPatients should not participate in strenuous activities or exercises for at least 24 hours: These actions increase blood pressure, which could lead to excessive bruising.nConsuming alcohol can also cause bruising; therefore, patients should abstain from drinking alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours.nFor at least 7 days after treatment, patients should avoid having any other treatments in the areas Dr. Sadati addressed with dermal filler injections.nSpending time in the sun, in steam rooms and/or saunas must be avoided for 7 days after a dermal filler treatment in Orange County.
