Juvederm® Hydrate

Juvederm® Hydrate is the best new injectable moisturiser for fine lines.

At Medicetics a treatment with Juvederm® Hydrate allows your doctor to deliver a deeply hydrating boost of hyaluronic acid (HA) to the skin. Tiny injections of juvederm® hydrate have been clinically proven to boost skin smoothness, brightness and hydration: to restore your skin’s healthy glow.

What else can it do:

Super-fine lines. Juvederm® Hydrate is also a fantastic treatment for early crows feet and smokers lines around the lips (the ‘barcode’), areas that traditionally are very difficult to treat with normal hyaluronic acid fillers.

How does it work

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a very powerful humectant, drawing 1000 times its own weight in moisture from the surrounding environment. HA is naturally produced by our skin to help hydration, but unfortunately in smaller and smaller amounts as we grow older. This is one of the main reasons that we notice our skin feeling drier as the years pass.

1. What is Juvederm® Hydrate?

Juvederm® Hydrate is a new un-crosslinked hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable treatment. The product has been clinically proven to deeply hydrate the skin by delivering HA into the skin through a series of tiny injections. As well as HA, Juvederm Hydrate also contains the antioxidant mannitol, and together these allow the skin to regain its natural smoothness and reveal a healthy glow.

2. What is it made from?

Juvederm® hydrate is a very highly concentrated HA (and 0.9% mannitol, a strong antioxidant). Many moisturisers contain HA, but in far lower concentrations, and of course never managing to get as deeply into your skin. No cream will ever come close to the effectiveness of this revolutionary new injectable hydrator.

3. Is Juvederm® Hydrate the right treatment for me?

Perfect for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth at any age. Juvederm® Hydrate is also a great all over ‘tonic’, an ‘uber-facial’, giving skin a great boost by deep, deep hydration.

4. What will happen during the treatment?

As with all treatments at Medicetics, you will have had a detailed consultation with your doctor before deciding to proceed. This involves a thorough consent process, where all of your questions will be answered in full.

You will then need to apply a topical anaesthetic cream for 30 minutes. The actual treatment consists of a series of micro-injections using a very fine needle to administer the product immediately beneath the surface of the skin. Your skin is then massaged deeply and make-up applied (if requested).

5. Is it painful?

No. Even without anaesthetic cream, most patients describe a mild ‘prickly’ sensation. However, if the upper lip is being treated, you may chose to have a dental injection to take away all sensation (for 30 minutes or so) in this very sensitive area. All treatments are performed by highly qualified doctors, so this is extremely quick and safe to do.

6. How long does the treatment take?

The actual injections usually take 10-15minutes. However, we usually book out 1 hour to allow for application of anaesthetic cream before and massage after your treatment.

7. What is the recovery time?

You will likely notice some tiny bumps just under the skin in the area treated. These can last up to 48hours after your treatment.

8. How often do I need to do repeat treatments?

We recommend an initial intensive course of 3 treatments 2 weeks apart. Many patients choose to complete this course with a 4th treatment 4 weeks after the 3rd. Results start to fade 3-4 months after your final session.

5Can I have Juvederm® Hydrate at the same time as other anti-ageing treatments?

Absolutely. Juvederm® Hydrate is the perfect complement to all of our injectable treatments and also works well when used in combination with the photofacial, many of our micropeels and other mesotherapy treatments.

5How safe is Juvederm® Hydrate?

Very. Juvederm® Hydrate was created by Allergan (a renowned global big Pharma company) and has been given a European CE mark (Dec09).
