  • How to Determine if Juvederm is The Right Anti-Aging Treatment For You

While Glenmore Landing Vein Clinic is temporarily only open for urgent care and emergencies only in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, we hope to be addressing all your cosmetic and vein concerns soon! If you have been considering a Juvederm treatment, here is a guide to help determine if this is the right procedure for you. 

While you may not be able to stop the aging process, the skin specialists at our Calgary vein clinic can help you naturally slow its progress with the use of powerful and safe anti-aging treatments, including Juvederm and Botox. 

What is Juvederm? Juvederm is a popular dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. When it is injected in the treatment area, it lifts, smooths, and plumps the skin for a more youthful and vibrant appearance. 

It is often recommended for: 

  • Lip enhancement
  • Filling out hollows beneath the eyes
  • Plumping up gaunt facial features (eg. the cheeks)
  • Eliminating upper lip lines

Customized Anti-Aging Treatments in Calgary 

At Glenmore Landing Vein Clinic, we offer a wide range of highly customized anti-aging treatments, including Juvederm, Botox, chemical peels, and hydrafacials, to help you restore the youth and vibrancy to your facial appearance.  


Please Note, We Are Temporarily Only Offering Urgent Care and Emergency Services 

In an effort to keep our city safe and slow the spread of COVID-19, Glenmore Landing Vein Clinic is open for urgent care and emergencies only. This includes patients who have recently been treated with Echosclerotherapy and require drains. 

We will be rescheduling appointments and monitoring our phone and email channels throughout this time.

How Exactly Does Juvederm Work? 

Juvederm is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a sugar-based substance found naturally in the body. Its role is to maintain hydration and act as a cushioning agent for your skin. When this is injected in the treatment area, it works to plump up areas of your face that have lost volume due to age, resulting in a more youthful appearance. 

Juvederm can be used to effectively treat multiple anti-aging concerns, such as:

  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Thin lips
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Undefined facial contours (eg. cheeks, chin, and jawline)

How long does a treatment take? Typically, a Juvederm treatment can be completed in 15 minutes and you will be able to return immediately to your daily activities. 

How is it administered? Your Juvederm specialist will use a fine needle to administer the gel beneath your skin. You may elect for topical anesthesia in the area for greater comfort.  


5 Benefits of Juvederm Tissue Filler

When used properly and administered by a trained specialist, Juvederm is an extremely versatile filler that can give you the naturally youthful glow you’re looking for.

Some of the great benefits you’ll enjoy when you opt for this anti-aging treatment, include:

  • Minimally invasive and quick procedure
  • There’s no risk of allergic reactions because it’s made from a natural substance
  • Natural and long-lasting results (Up to 12 months)
  • Most patients won’t experience any downtime and can return to their normal schedule immediately
  • ​It contains a numbing agent to provide greater comfort during treatment

Is Juvederm a Safe Anti-Aging Treatment For Me? 

Juvederm is an FDA approved dermal filler that is suitable for all skin types. HOWEVER, as with all cosmetic and anti-aging treatments, you must always discuss your suitability with your skin specialist to avoid any unsafe results. 

Some candidates who ARE NOT suitable for Juvederm are those that: 

  • Have known allergies to other dermal fillers or lidocaine
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are under the age of 18
  • Are taking medications such as blood thinners, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or aspirin.
  • Have undergone other skin treatments recently such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion

Our Juvederm Specialist Can Determine if This Treatment is Right For You 

During a private consultation, our skin specialists can assess your medical history, lifestyle, and aesthetic goals to help determine if Juvederm is the right, and safest, treatment for you.
