Rejuvenated During Your Lunch Break
The sun, the sand, the surf ... and the signs of aging? There are many things to like about living in South Florida, but wrinkles and volume loss surely aren't among them. Unfortunately, every day your skin is exposed not only to the natural elements but also to pollution. Throw in time and gravity, and you've got a recipe for wrinkles and lost volume. It's part of life — but now there's a simple solution. Injections of JUVÉDERM products are quick and comfortable, so you can restore a youthful look on your lunch break and get back to your daily life.
Injections of JUVÉDERM XC and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC can be combined with other injectables or a facial or peel. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC, made by the same manufacturer, is an excellent, innovative choice for specifically designed lip augmentation and enhancement. If you have more advanced signs of aging, a surgical procedure such as a facelift may be a better fit for you. Dr. Hasen or his physician assistant, Brandie, can recommend treatments that suit your unique conditions during your consultation.
JUVÉDERM XC Injectable Gel
Approved by the FDA for the correction of facial wrinkles (including laugh lines) and nasolabial folds, JUVÉDERM XC is a clear gel infused with a local anesthetic. It is injected beneath the skin around the lips to augment the soft tissue beneath. Because JUVÉDERM XC is made from biodegradable, hypoallergenic hyaluronic acid, there's very little risk of an allergic reaction. However, those with a history of allergies to lidocaine should avoid JUVÉDERM XC. The facial filler is available in multiple strengths, which allows your practitioner to target specific areas for treatment while tailoring the procedure to your needs. Best of all, the entire process takes just 15 to 20 minutes and is approved for all skin types and colors.

Side effects are minimal but may include swelling, redness, and itchiness. Makeup can be worn to conceal any temporary, light bruising. For the first 24 hours after receiving your injectable filler, you should avoid overexposure to heat and ultraviolet light and abstain from strenuous exercise. For most men and women, a single JUVÉDERM XC treatment once or twice a year is sufficient to maintain a more youthful look. The results are natural looking and natural feeling, lasting between 6 and 12 months.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
Research indicates that volume loss contributes even more to an aged appearance than wrinkles. With age, the cheeks lose volume, becoming flat or sunken, which also contributes to sagging in the lower face. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is the only filler approved by the FDA to treat age-related volume loss in the cheeks. It can restore a plump, youthful look to people of all skin types. Also a clear hyaluronic acid gel, this product has been specifically formulated with larger molecules to treat the broader area of the cheeks. It can be injected at different depths to target volume loss in precise regions, and its high level of crosslinks means it can last for up to 2 years. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC also includes lidocaine to make the treatments more comfortable, and each session lasts less than a half-hour.

Your results will be visible instantly, and you can return to your normal activities right away. Some bruising, swelling, and redness may be visible for a few days, lasting up to a week or two, although most patients find these side effects to be very mild and easily concealed with makeup. One treatment is typically all that is necessary. For patients in search of an alternative, Restylane® Lyft is another hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler that was approved by the FDA to treat diminished volume in the cheeks. During your consultation, Dr. Hasen or Brandie can help you determine which of these products is right for you.
