We understand that you may want to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, but may have a fear of needles. So do the folks at Allergen. For this reason, they’ve created a line of Juvéderm® products that include lidocaine, a numbing agent. Juvéderm® products with lidocaine all end with the letters “XC.” If you’re concerned about pain during your injection or have a general fear of needles, make sure to tell your Phoenix consultant at Dermacare Plastic Surgery.
You have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting the right dermal filler for you. There are so many different options on the market these days! Juvéderm® is the #1 best-selling dermal filler in the United States. With so many cosmetic surgeons choosing Juvéderm® for their practice, you can trust that it’s an ideal solution for your aesthetic goals.
The first reason why Phoenix patients need multiple injections of Juvéderm® is that the results of the dermal filler aren’t permanent. You’ll need maintenance injections every 3 to 5 months, depending on how long your individual results last. Some patients also need multiple injections to achieve their desired look. If this is your first time considering Juvéderm®, there’s no way for us to tell you how many or how often you’ll need injections, but once you start regular treatment your history should help predict how many and how often you’ll need injections in the future.
There’s no downtime when it comes to getting dermal filler injections. You can literally show up during your lunch hour, get your injection, and head back to work! You will, however, not be able to wear makeup the day of your injection, and you may have some slight redness at your injection site that you want to ice. Depending on your personal preferences, you can schedule your appointment for the end of your workday, or take the entire day off to rest and relax.
Some of our dermal filler patients at Dermacare Plastic Surgery don’t want anyone to know they’ve had some work done. Others are so excited by their results they want to shout the news from their rooftops, so everyone knows. Rest assured, besides not being able to wear makeup on the day of your treatment and having a little bit of redness immediately after your injection, there are no telltale signs of Juvéderm® treatment. While people will notice that you look great, they won’t know you’ve had a dermal filler injection unless you let them in on the secret.
Absolutely not! While it’s true that most Phoenix patients who seek us out for dermal fillers are women, we work with several Arizona men, too. Don’t let celebrity gossip magazines fool you. Thousands of men seek out Juvéderm® treatment every year, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t either.
