Juvederm treatment NYC
Juvederm® is a long lasting Hyaluronic Acid gel that injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle to lift and to add volume to the injected areas.
It is similar to the body own natural substance (hyaluronic acid) and it is a completely safe treatment. Juvéderm® dermal filler treatment offered by Trifecta Medical Spa in NYC and Long Island.
Wrinkles and sagging skin start to develop when the structural elements of the dermis begin to break down. The elements which give the skin structure are: collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin fibers.
Hyaluronic acid acts as a network onto which collagen and elastin fibers bind. Without it, wrinkles, jowls and volume loss can occur. Replacing hyaluronic acid, is therefore an obvious way to get rid of wrinkles, folds, sagging and loss of volume.
Juvéderm® supplements the body’s age-depleted hyaluronic acid to augment the lips or to add volume to the skin and fill in the particular area being treated. Juvéderm® has three major benefits:
- It is obtained by biosynthesis
- It is of non-animal origin and the molecule is highly biocompatible and biodegradable.
- It does not require any prior testing.
Through a simple, injection minor imperfections and signs of aging are softened very smoothly, thus achieving aesthetically pleasing look.
Juvéderm® is an excellent treatment option for:
- Deep nasolabial folds
- Lip enhancement
- Facial lines
- Shaping facial contours (cheeks and/or chin correction) or known as non-surgical face lift (liquid facelift)
- Smile lines (correcting thin, superficial lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead)
- Marionette lines

After the procedure:With Juvéderm® there is minimal recovery or no downtime. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure and consumption of alcohol in order to minimize the risks of temporary side effects such as: redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites.
After the injection, temporary reactions may occur, including: redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bumps. These are mild to moderate in nature and clear up within few short days. To minimize swelling at the treatment site, you can apply ice on the affected area.
You will see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve optimal results which last up to 12 months or more. However, supplemental touch-up injections may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
How Juvéderm® is injected?Juvéderm® facial filler is injected into the areas that are biggest concern for the patient, that is to say the areas that have changed the most as they have aged. It is injected with a very small, fine needle and the substance itself contains an anesthetic, making the treatment quite comfortable.The treatment is performed in the office and takes about 15-30 minutes. The results are immediate.
How long does the effect last?Each patient absorbs and breaks down Hyaluronic Acid differently. Different areas of the face, depending on the degree of movement, will lose the effect at different rates. Also, different factors may contribute to how long the treatment lasts. For example, with sun exposure it may abate more quickly. On average, Juvéderm® lasts for about 6 to 12 months.
Is the Procedure Painful?The very fine needles are used for injections. Also anesthetic is mixed into the substance and it makes the treatment very easy to tolerate. The minimal discomfort present at first fades quickly as the anesthetic takes effect.
Potential Juvéderm® Side EffectsAs with any injection treatment in the face, slight bruising may occur. If possible, aspirin and ibuprofen based medications should be avoided 7 days prior to treatment to minimize bruising. Patients with cardiac disease must ask their cardiologist before changing or discontinuing their medications.
Other possible but uncommon side effects include swelling, nodule formation and a bluish tint caused by the product being visible through the skin. Swelling and bruising disappear in a few days and the other side effects can easily be corrected by your physician.
You are encouraged to call and come in to Trifecta Med Spa in NYC and Long Island if you have any side effects as most are easy correctable.
