Juvederm Bellevue & Kirkland

Dermal filler injections are among the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States with over a million injections performed every year. Within the dermal filler category, hyaluronic acid fillers are by far the most popular due to their good safety profile and versatility. Two filler manufacturers offer hyaluronic acid fillers–Restylane and Juvederm. Both are about equal in usage and most providers offer both. Northwest Face & Body offers the best Juvederm Bellevue and Kirkland provides.

The Lowdown On Juvederm

Juvederm is a type of cosmetic injectable known as a dermal filler. It is injected for two main purposes: to fill hollows and wrinkles or to augment areas of the face. Primarily used on the face, dermal fillers like Juvederm are among the top non-surgical procedures for anti-aging. With millions of filler injections performed every year, it is an extremely popular and versatile tool for looking younger and achieving your ideal facial aesthetic.

Within facial fillers, some subcategories refer to what the filler is made out of. Juvederm belongs to the largest and most used classification: hyaluronic acid fillers. This means that Juvederm is lower risk than semi-permanent fillers and can treat more places such as the lips.

The master injectors at Northwest Face & Body are masters at using Juvederm to artfully augment and fill in facial features. Northwest Face & Body provides the best Juvederm Bellevue and Kirkland offers.

The Lowdown On Juvederm

Juvederm has many applications across the face. Some of the areas Juvederm can treat include:

Patients can usually treat multiple areas at once. Juvederm also pairs well with neurotoxin treatment such as BOTOX or Dysport. Your master injector will discuss which areas you are a candidate for treatment and the best Juvederm filler for each area.

Advantages Of Hyaluronic Acid Based Fillers

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, the largest concentrations of which are in the eyes and joints. Therefore, while rejection or allergy to the filler is possible, it is highly unlikely. Another major benefit of hyaluronic acid filler is that they have a natural reversal agent, hyaluronidase.

When injected, it breaks up the filler. If you experience major side effects or complications or end up unhappy with your new look, there is an easy antidote. This also increases the safety of hyaluronic acid fillers when compared with other types of fillers. If occlusion (the injection of filler into a blood vessel) or an adverse event occurs, it can be immediately addressed in the office.

While it may not seem like an advantage at first, the temporary nature of hyaluronic acid fillers allows patients to stop treatments whenever they want, try out various filler options, and try out different looks each time. This experimentation allows patients to find the exactly right filler option and technique for them.

Types Of Juvederm Filler

Juvederm makes a few different fillers that each have a slightly varied consistency and tend to be used in different areas. The main Juvederm offerings are Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Juvederm Voluma. Your master injector can discuss each option with you in detail and help determine which is best for the area you are treating and your goals.

  • Ultra: Normally used as a lip filler, Juvederm Ultra can also treat the nasolabial folds. Typically, Ultra is considered among the thinnest of Juvederm's fillers. It lasts on average around three to six months.
  • Ultra Plus: Contains lidocaine for improved comfort and is also used for dramatic lip augmentation. It is also used in the nasolabial folds. Slightly thicker than Ultra, it has a few more uses and sometimes is used in the cheeks or chin. It is versatile and great for volume loss and facial wrinkles. Juvederm Ultra Plus also lasts around six months, though can last longer in some places and individuals.
  • Voluma: Among the longest lasting hyaluronic acid option, Voluma is typically used in the chin or cheeks. It can last up to two years. Out of all hyaluronic acid fillers, it is often considered the one that lasts the longest.

Before & After Juvederm Injections In Bellevue

Consultation

The first step for undergoing Juvederm filler injections in Bellevue is to attend a consultation with a master injector. At this appointment, your master injector will ask you about your goals, medical history, history with fillers, and lifestyle. They may also briefly examine the area to evaluate the skin quality, thickness, and other factors that influence the filler choice and process.

If they believe you are a good candidate for your chosen procedure, they will discuss the many fillers you have to choose from. In some cases, you may undergo filler injections the same day. Otherwise, you can schedule your appointment at your convenience or before leaving the office.

Injection Process

First, your master injector will prep the injection sites. This involves disinfecting the areas with alcohol and cleansing them of any makeup or environmental debris. After this, they will likely apply topical numbing cream. This will sit for around ten to twenty minutes. During this time, your injector will prepare the Juvederm.

Your master injector will then begin the filler injections. Depending on the treatment, they may use a needle or cannula. If using a needle, they will start injections immediately. With a cannula, they will make a small entry point for the cannula using a small needle. After inserting the needle or cannula they will slowly inject the filler. They may move the needle within the injection point or inject at multiple sites to add volume evenly for the ideal results.

For most areas, the injections themselves do not take longer than about ten to fifteen minutes. You can have multiple areas treated at the same time. Along with the topical numbing cream, the Juvederm contains a small amount of lidocaine to help ease the filler as it is injected.

Aftercare

In the days following the injections, you may notice some common side effects such as:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Discomfort
  • Itchiness
  • Lumps

For the most part, these side effects should clear up in a week or two. For a day or two following Juvederm injections, your master injector may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, alcohol, and certain blood-thinning medications and supplements.

Your filler will continue to settle for about two weeks. If you still notice lumps, unevenness, or the result does not fit your goals after two weeks, our master injectors can perform a quick touch up.

Renuvion Bellevue & Kirkland

Collagen production is essential for maintaining supple, healthy skin. At around age 25, collagen production slowly begins to decrease. While not significant or noticeable at first, as environmental damage continues to take a toll on the skin, your body will not be able to keep up. This can lead to signs of aging such as wrinkles, sun spots, and sagging. Luckily, due to modern science, there are many minimally invasive ways to tighten the skin all around the body. Northwest Face & Body offers the best Renuvion

Understanding Renuvion: How It Works

Renuvion, also called J plasma, is among the newest innovations in skin tightening and body contouring. It uses a combination of plasma and radiofrequency. These two elements are frequently used elsewhere in general and aesthetic medicine–to cause the skin to retract. Often paired with liposuction and other body contouring procedures, Renuvion offers patients the opportunity to restore their bodies to tight and youthful contours.

Plasma & Radiofrequency

Plasma is often referred to as the fourth state of matter. It can be observed in lightning, neon signs, and more. Essentially, plasma is created gas is heated, similar to boiling water. In the case of Renuvion, helium gas is heated to create cold plasma. This cold plasma remains cooler than typical plasma because it contains more neutral ions, preventing burns.

Radiofrequency joins plasma to promote skin tightening in Renuvion. Plasma primarily treats the lower tissue of the skin while the radiofrequency waves will penetrate through the skin. This tightens from the inside out for the best results. RF energy is already used for skin tightening with other procedures such as RF microneedling. It has proven to be helpful when treating aged lax skin.

Benefits

Renuvion treatment carries many benefits and advantages. As one of the few effective, non-invasive options for skin tightening, many seek out Renuvion or combine it with other procedures for the best results. Some of the possible benefits include:

Tighter skin

Can be used almost anywhere

Non-invasive and safe

Needs only small incisions

Can accommodate different anesthesia types

Combinable with other procedures

Quick procedure

Viable for most healthy adults of any age

Little risk

Few, minor side effects

Cannula goes just beneath the skin

Limited recovery time

Works on all skin types

Performed by an experienced plastic surgeon

Renuvion vs. Vaser

Renuvion is not the only non-invasive procedure that tightens the skin. Vaser liposuction is also an option for many patients looking for a tighter physique. Each can provide fantastic results, but one is usually preferred over the other based on the situation, goals, and the patient’s anatomy. The table below describes some of the differences between Renuvion and Vaser.

Renuvion

Focuses only on skin tightening

Uses plasma and radiofrequency to promote skin tightening from the inside out

Does not remove fat when utilized on its own

Frequently paired with liposuction, but can be effective without

Tightens skin, but usually does not contribute to muscle definition

Vaser

Primarily focuses on fat with some skin tightening

Uses ultrasonic waves

Helps remove small portions of fat to improve muscle definition

Emulsifies fat before traditional liposuction is performed

Almost always performed with lipo

Ultrasonic waves promote skin tightening

The two procedures do have many similarities. Both are often paired with liposuction for the best results and provide some sort of skin tightening. Renuvion may be slightly more effective for skin tightening, but, unlike Vaser, it does not do anything for fat. The two are also fairly non-invasive and only require small incisions.

Vaser and Renuvion can be used together and often provide amazing results when used alongside one another. However, it is not always necessary. Dr. Allegra can discuss these possibilities and whether you are a good candidate for Renuvion, Vaser, or a combination of both.

Before & After Renuvion Skin Tightening

Consultation & Preparation

At a consultation with Dr. Allegra at Northwest Face & Body, you will get a chance to discuss your body goals, concerns, and ask questions. Dr. Allegra will want to know about your current and past medical history, aspects of your lifestyle, and what you expect from Renuvion in Bellevue. Following this in-depth discussion, he may examine the area to determine the amount of extra skin. As well as if you have any fat that needs removing to reach your goals, and the overall quality of the skin.

If you and Dr. Allegra both think Renuvion is right for you, he will create a comprehensive plan. This may include additional procedures like liposuction. Sometimes splitting the procedure into two if you want to address multiple areas is the safest option.

Once your surgery is scheduled and approaching, Dr. Allegra may give you some instructions for preparing for surgery. A few examples may include:

Finding financing

Making arrangements for transportation, childcare, etc.

Discontinuing or altering certain medications for a week/a few days before surgery

Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise

Begin certain medications if instructed

Procedure

In most cases of Renuvion treatment, you will be placed under general anesthesia. If liposuction or another surgical procedure is part of your surgical plan, Dr. Allegra will start with these. Following the completion of these procedures, he will then make small incisions. Dr. Allegra may also use existing liposuction incisions to perform Renuvion skin tightening.

Inserting the cannula just beneath the skin, he will gently and slowly glide it under the skin in the treatment area. Dr. Allegra will repeat this along the treatment area and in any other areas you want to be treated. Sometimes, the skin tightening becomes visible during treatment.

Recovery & Aftercare

Following Renuvion, Dr. Allegra may prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection. He may also recommend wearing a compression garment to promote further skin tightening and prevent side effects such as swelling. It is similar to the recovery after liposuction surgery.

Dr. Allegra typically recommends five to seven days off work. This may vary based on your medical history and procedure. As far as side effects, you may experience some minor swelling, bruising, pain, redness, tenderness, and itchiness. Generally, these are manageable and bearable. Dr. Allegra may also prescribe painkillers, but if you only undergo Renuvion, it may not be necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Renuvion Liposuction?

No, though it is often performed alongside liposuction. Renuvion does not address fat, only skin. Therefore, it is ideal for those who may have extra skin following weight loss or aging. Though, Dr. Allegra often recommends Renuvion and liposuction at the same time.

How Long Do Skin Tightening Results Last?

With the ideal care, patients can expect their results to last around three to five years. That said, younger patients may see longer lasting results. Aging cannot be stopped. Therefore, the skin will slowly begin losing elasticity again. Certain body areas are more susceptible to this than others.

Other factors such as the age of the patient, medical conditions, if liposuction was also performed, etc. After surgery, you can promote the best and longest lasting results in many ways including:

Follow recovery instructions carefully

Take good care of your skin

Eat well and exercise

Maintain weight

Treat medical conditions

Chemical peels

Microneedling

Laser resurfacing

Where Can Renuvion Be Used?

Renuvion can be used nearly anywhere on the body. Some of the most frequently treated areas of the body include:

Abdomen

Thighs

Arms

Hips

Back

Chin

Nearly anywhere you can undergo liposuction you can also undergo Renuvion skin tightening. It is also possible to treat multiple areas during one surgical session for most patients.

What Can I Expect From The Results?

Once you wake up from surgery, you may notice some minor skin tightening results. However, these will likely become distorted in the next couple of days as swelling settles in. Like most plastic surgeries, it can take several months to get your final, visible results. Most patients are satisfied within three to six months of a procedure. Though, results will continue to improve for several months. In contrast to patients, plastic surgeons usually do not consider results as final until nine to twelve months after.

How Much Is Renuvion Skin Tightening?

The total cost of Renuvion will depend on the number of areas being treated and the specifics of your procedure. At Northwest Face & Body, Renuvion skin tightening starts at $4,000.

While Northwest Face & Body does not offer its own financing, they do work with outside financing companies including Care Credit. United Medical Credit, and Alphaeon. To find links to apply for these resources and more information, visit our pricing page and toggle to the financing tab.
