DermaTouch RN, Laser & Skin Care Clinic offers effective dermal fillers such as the JUVÉDERM® line of products. Each product in the collection of fillers is designed to add volume to a different area of the face. One to lift cheeks, one to smooth parentheses lines or a filler to plump the lips. The results are refined and long-lasting.
How does Juvederm work?
JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers made with Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that delivers nutrients to the skin, helps the skin stay moist and soft and adds volume. When the transparent JUVÉDERM® gel is injected into the mid to deep layer of your skin, it replenishes the hyaluronic acid that your body has lost as you age. There it absorbs water from the surrounding environment adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. After six to nine months it is naturally absorbed into your body.

What to Expect
Your DermaTouch doctor administers the treatment during a short office visit, and then you’re done, there is no downtime. JUVÉDERM® is quick, easy and yields stunning results that are seen immediately. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC all contain lidocaine, a medication used to numb tissue in a specific area that helps minimize discomfort during treatment.
After the treatment, you can go right back to your normal activities. We do recommend that you avoid exercise for the first couple of days and massage the skin in the area that received treatment. There may be some redness or swelling right after your injections. These are just temporary and will usually fade in the first few days. You can apply a cold compress to the area to reduce the swelling.
Your DermaTouch esthetician will advise you on an injection schedule to maintain your results.
How long will the effects last?
Generally, the restorative benefits of JUVÉDERM®will last from 6 to 12 months depending on the area treated and the degree of correction.
How long is the recovery time?
You will be able to go about life as normal immediately after the procedure right after you leave the office. Most of our patients require no medication. Just be advised to minimize any strenuous exercise, exposure to extensive sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours following your treatment.
Are there any risks associated with Juvederm?
Common side effects of injections with JUVÉDERM®and other dermal fillers at the site of injection include injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching. The side effects will usually disappear in 2-6 days.
What procedures are best for Juvéderm?
JUVÉDERM® has a collection of products and formulas of varying strengths that are designed to target specific areas, so treatments can be tailored to your specific needs.
Is JUVÉDERM® for me?
Most people who want to increase the volume and smoothness of their skin are perfect candidates for JUVÉDERM®, but not everyone. You shouldn’t use the Juvederm products if you have a history of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) or if you are allergic to lidocaine or the proteins (Gram-positive bacterial proteins) used to make hyaluronic acid (HA) in JUVÉDERM® injectable gel fillers. Since Juvederm produces temporary results, you need to be able to continue treatments if you want to maintain the benefits.
