When it comes to soft tissue fillers, Juvederm is a superlative product. It can be used in virtually any facial region, providing a number of rejuvenating qualities. You will watch your age reverse in a matter of minutes, and the recovery time will leave you wondering if a procedure was ever performed.

Juvederm is a soft tissue filler that is used to add volume to the face and soften the appearance of folds and wrinkles, restoring your naturally-youthful appearance. This injectable filler is one of the most commonly used cosmetic injectables, as it is extremely safe and produces a soft, natural result. Ashlin Alexander prefer Juvederm for lip injections as it attracts water and produces velvety, plump, natural-appearing lips.

Juvederm treatment areas

When it comes to your face, Juvederm can be a universal solvent, adding volume to areas that have lost collagen or hyaluronic acid. This means it can be used to treat any number of undesirable qualities, such as crow’s feet, thinning lips, wrinkles and so-called “smoker’s lines.”

For deeper folds and wrinkles, we use Juvederm Ultra Plus or Voluma, both of which allow for more lifting. As an expert injectors, and Ashlin Alexander will discuss which products will create the best and most natural results.

Our expertise in applying injectables makes us among the top Juvederm specialists in Toronto. Ashlin Alexander will work with you to establish a plan, ensuring that each step taken has an exact purpose to enhance the natural beauty in your face. In the world of facial injections, Ashlin Alexander set the standard.

Prior to receiving juvederm®

During the initial consultation, Ashlin Alexander in Toronto will take a medical history to ensure there will be no adverse reactions to the product. Juvederm is sterile gel filler made under strict laboratory protocol. It is composed of non-animal hyaluronic acid (HA) and has been safely used by millions of men and women all over the world.

People with certain allergies particularly to lidocaine are not good candidates for Juvederm. Lidocaine is an anesthetic contained in the gel. If this is the case, we have other options without lidocaine that are similar to Juvederm. Radiesse® and Restylane® are good substitutes for those with sensitivity to Juvederm. Toronto residents are cautioned to trust their injectable procedures only to those who have the training to safely use them. Facial nerves can be damaged when injectables hit a nerve and while the effects of this are not permanent, they are not aesthetically pleasing.

Prior to your procedure you will be asked to avoid certain medications and herbal supplements for two weeks. These substances can increase bleeding which in turn will cause bruising.

Before Juvederm injections, patients are asked to avoid taking the following substances for at least two weeks:

  • Any NSAIDs (Ibuprofen, Aleve ®, Motrin ®, Advil ®, Aspirin ®)
  • Coumadin
  • Garlic
  • Ginseng
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Glucosamine
  • Fish Oil
  • Vitamin E

Arrive for your treatment well fed to avoid having to eat or chew for a few hours. This will help the gel to settle exactly where we placed it. Avoid applying makeup for a few hours to let the skin breathe.

Don’t exercise directly following treatment as this will raise blood pressure and interfere with the product settling properly. Other things that can cause bruising and swelling are using a hot tub, sauna or steam room or any heart rate raising activity.

Before & After

The best way to determine whether a surgeon is capable of giving you the results you desire is to view his past work and results.

How long does juviderm last?

Hyaluronic cosmetic injectables such as Juvederm are temporary fillers. They last for different lengths of time depending upon where they are injected. In areas where there is less movement of the skin such as tear troughs and cheeks, Juvederm will last for nine months to one year. In areas where there is more movement, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), Juvederm tends to last for about six to nine months. The lips have the most movement, and fillers tend to last four to six months in this area.

Dear Patients:

At FACE Toronto we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining our high standard of quality care. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made changes to our patient care practices in accordance with all provincial and Public Health recommendations. Our team has been working diligently on enhancing our safety protocols to protect the well-being of our patients, team members, and families. We would like to highlight how we are providing a safe environment for you and our team:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients that are scheduled to come into our office for any symptoms of COVID-19. We will ask patients to stay home with symptoms of COVD-19, chronic lung disease, severe asthma, serious heart conditions, and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. A mandatory Covid-19 consent form must be filled out before arrival to the clinic and temperature checks will be administered upon entering the building.
  • We have implemented a policy for the safety and testing of our staff members including daily screening and temperature checks. We will be maintaining physical distancing as much as possible throughout the office for staff and patients.
  • The timing of patient visits has been adjusted in order to limit the number of people in the office at a given time and to allow for enhanced disinfecting and cleaning protocols we have put in place in between patients.
  • We request that patients come on their own to all appointments unless absolutely necessary. We are not servicing any walk-in patients and not allowing visitors or children to accompany any patient.
  • For your safety all of our staff will be wearing masks when interacting with patients in the office and routine hand-washing is required.
  • We request that you wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, a mask will be provided. Hand sanitation stations will be available upon entering and throughout the office.
  • We are pleased to offer virtual visits as an option for non-urgent appointments. The software we have in place provides appropriate safety and privacy for the interaction.
  • We have increased our in-office cleaning. All areas of patient traffic are regularly cleaned throughout the day. All treatment rooms are cleaned between every patient encounter. All chairs and table tops in the waiting room as well as treatment rooms will be wiped down between patients, including counters, keyboards and door handles. Our credit/debit card terminal will be disinfected after each use. We have also enhanced the air filtration quality in our space to provide patients with surgically clean air.

We are so excited to welcome you back and look forward to continuing to help our patients look and feel their best! We encourage you to reach out to our office now to schedule your appointment. Please feel free to contact our team by phone at 416-479-4244 or email at info@facetoronto.com.
