Years of sun-damage combined with the natural aging process result in a depletion of hyaluronic acid (HA) and loss of elasticity with thinning of the skin giving a dry scaly appearance with crepey fine lines. This is commonly seen on the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Juvederm Hydrate– hyaluronic acid (HA) provides hydration and moisturising from within to reverse these changes. Juvederm Hydrate- is a smooth, pure, crystal clear non-animal hyaluronic gel which provides deep dermal hydration, moisturising from within to improve skin tone and health to restore the skin to a plump hydrated appearance, reducing fine lines.
Juvederm Hydrate replenishes the skins’ own hyaluronic acid which attracts water in the skin improving texture, tone and skin health. Recent studies have confirmed that HA boosts collagen production in the skin providing added benefit in skin rejuvenation. Initial consultation will determine the goals of treatment, make note of any associated medical conditions and plan the optimum treatment to achieve the ideal result in each patient.
Treatment is carried out in the out-patient setting and takes 30–60 minutes. A topical local anaesthetic cream is applied to the area(s); face, décolletage or hands. Juvederm Hydrate is delivered to the area via multiple injections using a very fine needle. Improvement in the skin appears with a few weeks following treatment. An initial course of 2 or 3 treatments every 4-6 weeks is recommended for optimal results.Juvederm Hydrate releases hyaluronic acid gradually over a period of time, therefore the improvement in the appearance generally lasts for 4-6 months. Repeat treatments are recommended every 6 months to maintain the skin hydration and improvement.
This treatment is £550 for a large area.
