Say hello to a natural, healthy glow with hyaluronic acid injections (Volumizing agent Juvederm)

Whether it is for superficial of deep wrinkles, of skin sagging, of hollow cheeks, of irregular features caused by skin ageing… for every problem, there is a solution!  Blur these signs of ageing and recover the youthful look you had a few years ago.

Get a younger and relaxed look with a hyaluronic acid (Antéis and Juvéderm) wrinkle treatment.

Description of the action of Volumizing agent Juvederm in Blainville

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is already present in your body.  It contributes to the absorbancy and maintenance of water inside the skin tissues.  With age and years of exposure to sun and pollutants, the natural production of hyaluronic acid becomes lacking.  This is why we use it today in medical aesthetical treatments, under the form of injectable gels, in order to fill wrinkles and restore the lost volume and contour of the face, neck, hands and neckline.

After a hyaluronic acid injection, your wrinkles and sagging skin marks will be softly blurred, without making your natural features and expressions being transformed or set as marble. The results are immediate. Once injected, the hyaluronic acid gels, also called wrinkle-filling formulas, filling agents or volumizing substances, harmoniously diffuse into your dermis, for the most natural effect.

At the Institut Brabant, the commercial hyaluronic acid brands used are Antéis,  Juvederm and Radiesse.

Clinical indications and contraindications of Volumizing agent Juvederm

Hyaluronic acid is often used to increase the volume and redefine the contour of lips, and to reduce the wrinkles around the mouth. This acid is also used to smooth out the smile lines (nasolabial folds), to soften the wrinkles along the jaw (wrinkles in the corner of the mouth) and correct the features and volumes of the face contour, that may be sagging with age or following an accident.

Since the facial features of every person are unique, just like the signs of ageing, our specialized technicians will make sure to help you get the appropriate treatment for you.

At the injection sites, you may experience a light redness, some swelling and small bruises.  These effects will disappear quickly.

We suggest that you respect the following recommendations before your treatment:

– If you suffer from cold sores (herpes labialis) and still wish to get a treatment of your lips and the contour of the mouth, we strongly recommend that you take an antiviral medication (Valtrex) to avoid an after-treatment eruption of cold sores.

– If you are following a medical treatment involving anti-inflammatory drugs, anticoagulants or antibiotics, certain restrictions apply. Our specialist will explain such restrictions to you at the time of your consultation.

– Avoid any intake of alcohol, AspirineMD or AdvilMD at least 24 hours before your appointment.

– Three days before and after your treatment, you can take Arnica granules to lessen the risk of bruises.

The treatment is not recommended to pregnant women or mothers who are breast-feeding.

A hyaluronique acid injection in short

Please note that each hyaluronic acid injection is administered by an experienced licensed nurse with a specific expertise in medical aesthetical treatments.  The treatments last from 30 to 90 minutes, according to the areas to be treated.

A topical anaesthetics, in the form of a spreadable ointment, will be administered to you in order to reduce the pain at the injection site.  However, if you wish to, you can also choose an injection combined with an anaesthetics agent, to ensure a greater comfort during the procedure.  During your treatment, your health specialist will introduce the injectable gel under your skin, in the areas that you will have previously identified with her.

After the treatment, you will be able to immediately resume your daily activities, without anyone noticing that you underwent a rejuvenation procedure.  You will look invigorated, younger, refreshed and simply dazzling!

Care and maintenance plan

The results are immediate and last from 10 to 18 months.

During the twelve hours following the treatment, you must avoid applying makeup on the treated areas.  You may periodically apply cold compresses, if need be, to lessen the oedema (swelling) of treated areas.

During the next two weeks, you must avoid :

– direct and unprotected prolonged periods in the sun or exposure to UV rays;
– temperatures inferior to 0 degree Celsius;
– use of sauna, hammam or steam bath.

An annual touch-up session is recommended to maintain the achieved results. After several treatments, the frequency and dosage will be reduced.

In some cases, the combination of hyaluronic acid and Botox is indicated to get an optimal rejuvenating effect that is absolutely natural-looking. Your Institut Brabant health professional will advise you on the adequate care program, that will meet all your needs and stay within your budget.

Cost of hyaluronic acid injections

A personalized consultation is required to adequately assess the cost of your treatment.  The consultation is free of charge at the time of your first treatment.
