Technology has paved the way for non-invasive cosmetic procedures to move to the forefront of anti-aging treatments. Treatments like, injectables, laser treatments, and microdermabrasion are becoming increasingly popular, and among them is the non-surgical treatment for facial rejuvenation-Juvederm.

Juvederm is a popular and natural filler for anti-aging among Canadian women, and now commands greater than 70% of the North American market. Below are five of the reasons Juvederm is increasingly becoming a dermal filler and anti-aging treatment of choice.

Treats Multiple Facial Issues

As you age, so does your skin, and there are some areas that are more prone to showing these signs of age than others. Fortunately, products like Juvederm-Voluma,Volift and Volbella can help treat these problem areas. Even better than before their new class of specialized product of VYCROSS products.

  • Decrease in chin, cheek, and jaw definition
  • Development of tear troughs or under-eye hallows (bags under the eyes)
  • Formation of moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds, such as marionette lines (skin folds in the corner of the mouth), nasolabial folds (smile lines), and vertical lip lines
  • Development of nose irregularities, such as minor bumps. The nose can actually be reshaped and redefined through bridge-heightening or tip-reshaping.
  • Lost collagen in the lips, which leads to thinner lips


Better Quality Than Other Treatments

The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is a key ingredient which makes it more effective than other anti-aging treatments. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that is found in the body and combines with the water in the skin to restore lost volume and smooth out wrinkles. This means that it literally fills the tissues and gives it more volume and lifting definition creating a return to younger facial features. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types while many other skin treatments are not.

No Pain or Downtime

Surgery and some laser treatments can be painful and expensive require extensive downtime, but this isn’t the case with Juvederm. In fact, it’s formulated with lidocaine (a localized pain reliever) to reduce pain and discomfort, which means your treatment, is virtually painless. After the procedure, you’ll need to protect the skin from sun and heat exposure, but you’ll still be able to resume your normal daily activities except strenuous exertion.

Fewer Side Effects

Once again, the hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is a great benefit. Here, the benefit is fewer side effects than other anti-aging treatments. Occasionally brief minor swelling, bruising and transient redness have been reported. Nerve and blood vessel injuries, however, have occurred in rare cases.

Long-term Results

The results from Juvederm treatments last 18 to 24 months or longer especially with the new family of VYCROSS products. The injections are done by Dr.Bakken with pre and post care supervisions and assisted by her team of medical aestheticians.
