Increase The Volume
In All The Right Spots!
Our Aesthetician begins by identifying the treatment zones.
A small needle is then used to inject the Juvederm product into areas within the treatment zones. Injection usually takes just a few seconds per site. Then the process of massaging, and evaluating the result is performed, with additional filler added if needed.
The procedure has no associated down time, other than avoiding strenuous exercise until the following day.
Smooth Youthful Looking Skin
Hydrafacial Is For Everyone
The Best Skin Of Your Life
The End Result
The results will be immediately noticeable and the injection sites may be tender for a day or two. For the Juvederm family of Hyaluronic Acid fillers the effects are temporary, lasting 6 to 12 months or longer before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles.
Dermal fillers are great for:
Smoothing out lines around nose and mouth
Enhancing volume to sunken cheeks or temples
Diminishing vertical lip lines
Plumping the lips
Improving the symmetry of facial features
You will slowly notice the effects diminish after around 6 months. After this period, you should make note of the time span and evaluate when you will be ready for another treatment. Creating and staying on a schedule will help to maintain your youthful look.
The End Result
We recommend a peel to accelerate the natural exfoliation process which will keep your skin looking fresh.
For those with sensitive skin or minor issues an enzyme peel produces the following results:
Controls acne, shrinks pores, and removes blackheads
Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and some scarring
Reduces age spots and redness
For those with more severe issues the chemical peel is best when it comes to:
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
Smoothing pigmentation and acne scars
Shrinking large pores
Tightening sagging skin
Depending on your skin type and need we can help find a treatment that is right for you.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
As we age, collagen (which maintains skin firmness) gradually disappears and our skin loses moisture. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance.
Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. The hyaluronic acid within fillers can be used to diminish facial lines as well as lift and shape cheeks, jawlines and lips (to name a few).
At Lumera we use the Juvederm family of Hyaluronic Acid products.
Is the procedure painful?
There will be a minor stinging sensation during the injection.
How long do the fillers last?
Our Juvederm family of Hyaluronic Acid fillers last anywhere from 6 to 12 months and longer. It just depends on the individual circumstances.
How long does it take?
Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process may be as short as 15 minutes, or as long as an hour.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
