Folds, wrinkles, and lines will develop on most of our faces as we age. A loss of facial volume combined with repetitive expressions such as smiling or frowning can make these unwanted characteristics even more noticeable. Thankfully, if you are struggling with these signs of aging, there are a number of surgical and non-surgical treatment options available to you to help restore your youthful visage.
Dermal fillers from the Juvéderm family provide an excellent non-invasive option. At Reen Medical Group, we offer a full line of cosmetic injectables to help you maintain a smooth, glowing face. Reach out today to learn more about Juvéderm Vollure in Ridgecrest.
What is Juvéderm Vollure?
Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-attracting substance that occurs naturally in the body. Over time, the body produces less, contributing to the skin gradually losing its plump, youthful appearance—Juvéderm Vollure treatments in Ridgecrest work by reintroducing this essential molecule into the skin.
Juvéderm Vollure is an FDA-approved injectable hyaluronic acid filler that treats moderate to severe wrinkles and folds primarily around the lower face. It softens marionette, parentheses, and smile lines and is the first and only filler to provide these results for up to 18 months.
Candidates for Juvéderm Vollure
Any adult in Ridgecrest who is at least 21 years old and wishes to enhance their features and diminish the appearance of folds or wrinkles could be a candidate for Juvéderm Vollure. However, it is not advisable to receive this treatment if you are pregnant or nursing, have been diagnosed with pigmentation disorders, have a tendency towards keloid scarring, or are allergic to lidocaine.
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for this treatment is to schedule a consultation. During this visit, Dr. Reen and his team can sit down with you to discuss your aesthetic goals and health history to customize a plan of action that will deliver beautiful, long-lasting results.
What to Expect at Your Juvéderm Vollure Appointment
Juvéderm Vollure treatments in Ridgecrest are typically quick and require no downtime. You can expect the process to take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the size and severity of the treatment area.
Results are often noticed immediately after your treatment. Improvements will typically continue to surface for the next one to two weeks. Most normal activities can be resumed; however, during the first few days, Dr. Reen may advise you to:
- Avoid intense workouts
- Avoid overexposure to the sun
- Place an ice pack on the treated facial areas if there is swelling
- Massage the treated area for a quicker and smooth recovery
These steps could vary depending on the individual. Our team will ensure that when you leave, you have all of the information you need to avoid any unwanted issues.
