FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Dermal fillers are non-surgical injectables that can be injected into the skin to add volume or fill out wrinkles and their surrounding areas. They are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and folds in the skin’s surface. There are various types of dermal fillers on the market but at JeJuve we only use highly regarded, all natural Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based products. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin which helps to nourish and hydrate the underlying skin structure which restores volume and fullness to the face. Dermal fillers provide non-surgical treatments and are a great solution if you’re seeking a temporary fix for lines, wrinkles, recessed scars, thin lips, or loss of fullness in the cheeks.
Dermal fillers are the perfect solution for men and women who looking to make temporary, yet effective changes to skin. During our initial consultation we will discuss your medical history and eligibility to proceed with dermal filler treatments. At Jejuve, all clients must be at least 21 years of age and proof of age will be required at our initial consultation. Dermal fillers cannot be administered to any pregnant or breastfeeding women. Any individuals with active cold sores or skin infections must wait until the issues have fully subsided before seeking treatment. If you have any further questions, please get in touch.
At JeJuve we offer bespoke aesthetic packages to our clients. Some clients wish to use fillers to reduce the appearance of aging but others come to rectify a cosmetic issue such as an uneven nose. All of our clients want the same thing, change, and at JeJuve we want to help you on journey to become the best version of yourself.
Our process begins at our initial consultation where we will discuss your suitability for the procedures, your concerns and how we can work together to come up with a plan to treat them. Once you decide to undergo a dermal filler procedure the process is generally as follows;
The treatment area is prepped and sterilised after which a local anesthetic cream is applied to the area to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. A very small amount of dermal filler is injected into the site, and depending on the area being treated, there may be a series of injections. In most cases, the procedure will take between 15 and 30 minutes. Clients may feel a slight pinch or often nothing at all during the procedure. Discomfort is managed through the use of numbing creams and the use of select dermal filler products with anesthetic added to the formula.
Dermal Fillers are injected into the skin releasing the Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which has the effect of ‘plumping up’ the skin to reduce the visibility of the wrinkle or volumise a particular area of the skin.
Dermal fillers are a safe and temporary solution for restoring volume and fullness to the face or in the case of a non-surgical nose job, adding volume and shape to the nasal area. At JeJuve, we use natural dermal fillers composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). Hyaluronic Acid is made in our bodies and when administered, will in time, naturally be broken down and reabsorbed by your body over time.
The effects of dermal fillers usually begin to fade after 6 – 9 months but it is important to note the same treatment can last longer in one person than in another. The lasting effect it has depends on the body part that was injected, the quantity of dermal filler injected and the individual client. Since the effects of dermal fillers are not permanent, clients can have the treatment re-adminstered as soon as the effects of the previous procedure has dissipated or if you wish to have a top up. Together we can consult on a suitable time frame for top ups or further procedures.
Dermal fillers are one of the safest aesthetic treatments on the market. Side effects are mild and temporary as the procedures are non-evasive. The most common side effects are slight redness of the skin and swelling or bruising around the injection site. Lips may remain swollen for several days following treatment. Any site effects experienced should only last a couple of days.
