Laser and Skincare MedSpa in Red Deer offers Natural Fill Juvederm to reduce wrinkles and add volume while reversing sagging skin. Wrinkle reduction and the correction of skin defects using injectable materials is not a new concept. For several decades we have witnessed the emergence on the market of various wrinkle reduction implants. Wrinkle reduction Natural Fill Juvederm is used in the long-term cosmetic correction of natural or acquired skin depressions caused by aging and/or trauma, or for the creation of volume to plump up the lips and/or restore sunken cheekbones. Juvederm is also used for the correction of post-scar skin depressions. Volume-filling to reverse sagging is an affordable aesthetic solution as an alternative to invasive plastic surgery, with targeted areas filled in with injectable product, enabling the patient to quickly resume normal activities after the cosmetic procedure is complete. Natural Fill Juvederm is a great example of WHERE ARTISTRY MEETS SCIENCE; its use requires a blend of technical skill and artistic flair. In Canada, natural fillers are a controlled substance and can only be injected by a Physician or a Registered Nurse under the guidance of an M.D. Dr. Bakken only uses the long acting varieties of the various Juvéderm™ products.
Types of Filler
Laser and Skincare MedSpa uses Juvéderm™ “next generation” dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring sugar that is found in every cell of the human body. Juvéderm™ attracts water into the skin to restore lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles and to enhance targeted areas such as the lips and cheekbones. Juvéderm™’s smooth gel provides visible, natural-looking results that are long-lasting. Juvéderm™ Ultra, Ultra Plus, Voluma, Volbella and Volift all contain lidocaine (an anesthetic), for painless injection.
Juvéderm™ VOLUMA™ (launched 2010)
Juvéderm™ VOLUMA™ is an injectible hyaluronic volumiser that can reshape the face restoring volume to cheeks, cheekbones and chin areas that have become sunken or thinner and reduced in fullness due to weight loss, genetics or aging. Immediately after treatment, you will notice that your facial features look fuller and that your face has a softer, more youthful appearance. Juvéderm™ VOLUMA™ is quick-acting and long-lasting with some experiencing results that last up to 2 years!
Juvéderm™ VOLUMA™ was specifically developed to restore lost facial volume (e.g. in the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin). While wrinkle fillers like Juvéderm® ULTRA offer excellent results when applied to fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and eyes, Juvéderm Ultra Plus and Juvéderm™ VOLUMA™ is often better suited to larger scale facial volumising.
Dr. Bakken has specific training in using cosmetic facial volumising products and has established expertise in these procedures.
The most appropriate type of cosmetic filler for each patient depends on the area to be treated and the desired result. The different types of fillers provide various outcomes for any given area with experienced physicians selecting the most advantageous product for effective treatment.
Juvéderm® Volbella® (launched 2013)
Juvéderm® Volbella® is now available at Laser and Skincare MedSpa. Volbella® is an injectable filler based on hyaluronic acid (HA) that provides a desirable improvement in the lip contour. Boosting lip volume, smoothing vertical creases (smoker’s lines), and restoring or creating symmetry can all be achieved in a single treatment session that usually lasts 20 minutes or less. In addition, Juvéderm® Volbella® contains lidocaine (an anesthetic) for a more comfortable treatment!
Juvederm Volift (launched 2015)
Allergan launched this addition to their family of NATURAL FILLERS in 2015. Volift is especially designed to restore shape to the smile lines (nasogenial folds). Because it’s a denser fill like Voluma, patients notice results immediately. This product is clinically proven to last about a year. Like the other Juvederm products, it contains Lidocaine freezing for virtually pain free injections and VYCROSS technology like Voluma and Volbella. This unique clear gel formula alows for a smooth natural looking appearance assuring high patient satisfaction.

HOW IT WORKS
Wrinkle reduction fillers such as Juvederm are injected into fine lines, deep lines or superficial defects adding volume to the target areas and, in turn, pushing out wrinkles, evening out the contour of the skin, and reversing skin-sagging. Wrinkle reduction fillers are a non-surgical procedure reversing deep, persistent wrinkles to create a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing appearance. The results are immediate and this cosmetic procedure is so simple and quick many patients come in for treatment during their lunch hour and afterwards return to their normal daily activities. Over time, natural metabolic processes break down these natural fillers and they dissipate from the treated area. There is, therefore, no cause for concern over the filler migrating or becoming absorbed into another area of the body.
