Juvederm

Liquid Lift


A liquid lift is when a filler, such as Juvéderm, is used to fill folds and add volume to strategic areas of the face to create a “lifted” appearance.

  • The advantage of such treatments is that it is non-surgical and has minimal to no downtime
  • The disadvantage is that the treatment lasts as long as the filler typically 1 year or more. 


How Does it Work?

1


The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes and is done in the exam room. First a careful analysis of the face is performed to determine where the filler is needed.


2


We don’t just put the filler in the cheeks and call it a “lift”.


3


The area is made numb to ensure comfort


4


We use blunt tipped cannulas that result in less bruising, swelling and discomfort.


5


Fine threads of the Juvéderm are placed in the right plane to achieve a natural looking rejuvenation.



Recovery after the treatment

  • Immediately afterwards, there will likely be redness, slight swelling and rarely some bruising. Redness resolves within 24 hours. If there is bruising, one can usually cover the area with makeup.
  • Rarely does the patient feel discomfort after the procedure.
  • Most patients are advised not to have the treatment done within 24 hours of an important event.
