Keith Llewellyn MD and our Aesthetic Nurse use many different dermal fillers to soften facial lines and restore volume with natural looking results.
How It HelpsJuvederm is a very smooth gel composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring hydrating substance found in our skin. As we age and get exposed to the sun, our naturally occurring hyaluronic acid diminishes. This results in loss of volume of the skin and the formation of lines and deeper facial folds. By using Juvederm, we are simply replacing what you have lost over time to restore your skin's volume and soften your facial lines and wrinkles. Juvederm has a very natural and comfortable feel when placed in the dermal layer of the skin. To further enhance the comfort of the injections, Juvederm XC has lidocaine, an anesthetic, mixed into the syringe as well. Call today to schedule your complimentary consultation with our aesthetic nurse in our Santa Barbara office to learn more about the benefits of Juvederm.
How to PrepareWe ask that you arrive make-up free when possible and if you would like to have a topical numbing cream applied to the injection area(s) please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
Post-Care InstructionsFollowing your dermal filler treatment do not work out or lay down for 4 hours following your treatment. Do not have any facial laser procedures for two weeks following your treatment. Bruising is possible and therefore, we recommend that you schedule any social plans accordingly. Arnica supplements have been shown to reduce discomfort, bruising and swelling from injectable procedures. Arnica pills may be started the day before or the day of treatment and should be continued until bruising has resolved
