Juvederm’s active ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is naturally found in our skin. HA is able to retain more than 1,000 times its weight in water, moisturizing the skin and giving it a dewy, youthful glow. As we age, the production of HA slows down, leaving our skin dry and allowing fine lines and wrinkles to take hold.
Juvederm is a gel that helps smooth the appearance of the skin by filling in lines. Because it contains HA, it actively moisturizes and adds volume.
Juvederm is suitable for use on facial lines and wrinkles known as ‘static’ lines, i.e. those that can be seen when you aren’t moving your face (rather than ‘active’ lines, which are caused by facial expressions). It can also be used to add fullness to the lips.
To treat active or expression wrinkles, you may want to look into getting Botox in Tijuana instead.
It’s important to know that the same brands are available in Mexico as in the USA. They are usually imported and approved by the FDA in the US. Juvederm is one of them. There are other fillers available in the Juvederm range, including Juvederm Volift, which isn’t approved in the US but is in Europe. There are so many on the market that it’s always worth doing your own research, and this includes the clinic or practitioners, too.
Treatments like these have become so commonplace that it’s easy to forget that potentially harmful products are being put into your skin, or at least they could be if administered incorrectly. It’s crucial that you find facilities with the right credentials and who have a good track record of administering the treatment by fully-qualified and experienced practitioners.
Medical Departures aims to make the process much easier. We carry out a number of background checks, looking into legal and criminal records, qualifications & professional memberships and conducting onsite visits. We also gather real patient reviews, high-definition clinic photos and virtual tours which are published on our website along with prices, maps and other useful information about the location.
Choosing to have any medical procedure is not something to take lightly; we want you to be safe and comfortable in your chosen clinic for successful Juvederm treatment in Tijuana.
Get started now by looking at the excellent Dr. Luis Fernando Loustaunau Caballero that offers Juvederm and a range of other affordable beauty treatments in Tijuana.
The treatment is administered via injection, and it takes between 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas you are having treated.
Juvederm is typically administered with a local anesthetic, such as Lidocaine, so the experience should not be painful.
You may have a little redness and swelling in the treated areas but other than that you should be able to get on with your daily activities straight away. This is part of the reason why treatments like Juvederm are so popular with American visitors, as one can head home the same day with no real downtime requiring an overnight stay.
Any redness and swelling will subside after a day or two, and you can always apply a little make-up to disguise this if you need to.
Juvederm in Tijuana is usually priced per syringe and costs approximately $275 (CAD $330, GBP £175, Euros 240, AUD $350). This is a saving of around 50% compared to in the US, where the same course of treatment would be around $500 (CAD $600, GBP £320, Euros 450, AUD $650) in the United States.
Some areas may require two syringes, and this would obviously increase your savings (making the trip south all the more worthwhile).
