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.

Description :

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.

Chemical peels come in many forms. Most skin peels performed at Northwest Face & Body are light peels. This means that they use less aggressive acids that do not require any downtime. These treatments will cause skin peeling, but it only lasts a day or two and is relatively easy to conceal. Medium and deep peels cause more peeling and it can last for longer. However, they often provide better results and are recommended for patients with major skin damage. A new generation of skin peels offers the results of more invasive treatments with minor peeling and little downtime. Northwest Face & Body provides the best VI Peel Bellevue and Kirkland offers.

Overview: The VI Peel

The VI Peel combines a blend of ingredients and acids that deeply penetrate and resurface the skin while not requiring major downtime. Traditional TCA and phenol peels often leave your face peeling for a week and can directly impact your lifestyle. The VI Peel requires about the same amount of downtime as a light chemical peel. For most patients, the results are comparable to a more invasive procedure.

How It Works

A Bellevue VI Peel works similarly to a traditional chemical peel. It utilizes acids to chemically remove dead skin and the outer layers of skin. This causes the skin to peel following the treatment. This is where the chemical peel procedure gets its name.

Once the skin sheds off these layers, it reveals newer layers of skin underneath. Skin peels also often infuse moisture and restorative properties deep into the skin for complete rejuvenation.

The VI Peel innovates the chemical peel process. Light chemical peels typically use one, or a blend of acids like salicylic glycolic acid. These acids are effective for a standard chemical peel and those wanting to maintain the quality of their skin. For patients with more extensive sun damage, aging, or scarring, these light peels may not offer the results patients want.

Designed to treat cystic acne and its effects, the VI Peel uses these lighter acids and then adds in smaller amounts of acids such as trichloroacetic acid and phenol. Normally, these acids are more aggressive causing the skin to peel for longer and worse than lighter skin peels. They may even require a few days of downtime.

By using these acids in smaller amounts and blending them with ingredients that can soothe their effects, the VI Peel offers the results of medium chemical peels with less skin peeling and downtime.

What It Does

As mentioned previously, a VI Peel chemically resurfaces the skin. This essentially means that it deeply exfoliates and removes skin for a rejuvenated look. The resurfacing process can improve the quality and appearance of the skin substantially for most patients. Patients who experience certain skin problems or conditions may also find that it contributes to fewer flare-ups.

Conditions that a VI Peel in Bellevue may improve include:

Along with these treatments, the peel can benefit patients without skin conditions. Like other facial peels such as the zombie carbon laser peel, the VI Peel has many cosmetic uses. Cosmetic benefits include:

Ingredients And Practices

The VI Peel is well known for valuing safe and ethical practices. Their skin peels are cruelty and paraben free. The peel itself is gluten free. It is also is considered one of the safest peels for darker skin tones. As far as ingredients, the VI Peel uses several natural acids from a variety of sources.

VI Peels offer multiple options that differ slightly in the formulation. Your master esthetician will determine the best VI Peel for you. Depending on the peel chosen, you may expect ingredients like:

The VI Peel Procedure

The master estheticians at Northwest Face & Body custom make every procedure they perform. The VI Peel comes pre-packaged in a specialized kit that your master esthetician will choose for you. Based on your skin needs, your master esthetician may recommend other procedures like dermaplaning, oxygen facials, or microneedling in the weeks before or after your VI Peel.

The first step in the VI Peel application is to thoroughly clean your skin. Your master esthetician may use a toner, alcohol, or acetone to make sure the skin is thoroughly cleaned of debris, products, and oils. This ensures that the peel penetrates deeply into your skin.

Your master esthetician will then apply the first layer. You may feel a stinging sensation, though this should not last long or cause a large amount of pain. Next, your master esthetician will continue applying the following layers until parts of your skin turn white. This may sound alarming, but this is a perfectly normal process called “frosting”. Frosting indicates that the VI Peel is beginning to remove dead and damaged skin.

Once frosting begins, your master esthetician will stop applying the peel. You can then leave the office as the Bellevue VI Peel self neutralizes. Your skin will look darker in tone due to the peel. Before you remove the peel after a few hours, you should not apply any products during this time. You should also avoid sun exposure.

VI Peel Aftercare

VI Peels come with a specific aftercare kit that your master esthetician will give to you before you leave the Northwest Face & Body office. The VI Peel will remain on your skin for about four to six hours on average. The amount of time you allow the peel to self neutralize will depend on your specific skin type, tone, and goals. After the specified time, you will wash the peel off at least one hour before going to bed. You will then use the provided towelettes. Your kit may also include other products to apply over the next few days.

Peeling after a VI Peel usually begins at around day three. At this point, you can resume the provided or approved moisturizer. Applying the aftercare products as instructed may help some of the peeling skin come off. It also keeps your skin more comfortable. Peeling should resolve in about five to seven days following the VI Peel. Some patients see peeling at ten days, but this is rather rare.

Accompanying the VI Peel aftercare, you will need to temporarily shift your lifestyle. Usually, your master esthetician will recommend avoiding exercise for a few days and certain skincare products. When peeling begins, you should not pull off the peeling skin, the moisturizer and aftercare kit can help with this.

You do not need time off work. Though, if you have never had a VI Peel before, your master esthetician may recommend scheduling it on a Wednesday so that the majority of the peeling occurs over the weekend. However, there is no required downtime from daily activities other than exercise and your skin routine.

Results

When the peeling stops, you will likely notice that your skin looks brighter and feels smoother. You may also see that your skin tone looks more even and balanced. Over time, the VI Peel works to stimulate collagen and elastin production which can contribute to more youthful skin and fill in irregularities. Subsequent peels can improve and enhance the collagen production process.

Risks

The VI Peel is largely regarded as one of the safest chemical peels Bellevue offers. Safe and effective for all skin types and tones, the VI Peel does not have many risks in an ideal candidate. For certain patients with specific skin conditions or health problems, the VI Peel may not suit them or their needs. For example, patients with eczema may not find benefit from a VI Peel. Also, like many esthetic procedures, there is a risk of reactivating herpes sores. If you have frequent cold sores, you should discuss this with your master esthetician.

Patients with darker skin are at a higher risk of hyperpigmentation. This is true for all chemical peels and the VI Peel has a good track record of treating patients of all skin tones. Your master esthetician may discuss this with you before treatment and likely no action or the use of a brightening cream before treatment may be necessary. You and your master esthetician can handle these risks before your Kirkland VI Peel.
