Look younger and reduce wrinkles with dermal filler treatment Juvederm. In South Korea making the most of yourself is embedded into the national psyche and there are plenty of good-quality clinics with skilled practitioners who are ready to enhance your natural beauty.
Quick treatments like this are great if you haven’t got much time – and the results are immediately noticeable, and the treatment costs a whole lot less here than it does at home.
Juvederm is a dermal filler – a product that is injected directly into the skin to work its ‘magic’. The active ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally in our own skin. HA provides hydration and is able to hold more than 1000 times its own weight in water. When we are born we have lots of HA, but it decreased as we get older – especially once we get over 40. This is why babies have beautiful moist-looking glowing skin, and why it increasingly becomes dry and dull as we age.
Juvederm hydrates and adds volume, which fills in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and moisturizes.
Juvederm is most effective for lines and wrinkles that are ‘static’ – those you can see when your face is at rest and not pulling an expression. It can also be used for other area, for example, on the lips to increased fullness.
The culture in South Korea is very image conscious and so there are clinics dealing with every aspect of beauty practically on every block. It is a very competitive market and easy to forget as products like these are so ubiquitous that they are actually a medical treatment, and so some caution is required.
You should do a little research if you are looking at dermal fillers. While brands such as Juvederm are well-known and available throughout the world, there may be different products available in the range which aren’t available in some countries. For example, the FDA in the US has approved Juvederm but not Juvederm Volift – but Juvederm Volift has been approved in Europe. South Korea is renowned for its innovative approach to beauty, and it is worthwhile finding out about new products that may not have been approved for use in your home country yet.
Likewise, you should always do some research on the clinics and doctors you intend to use. These products must be administered by someone with the appropriate training and skills, which is why Medical Departures runs its own background checks on criminal/legal records, confirms qualifications, verifies professional memberships and collects online testimonials that we publish on our site. We also do onsite visits and only if we’re happy with these aspects do we publish a clinic/doctor. Booking with us means you are always assured of quality that is reliable.
Juvederm is administered by an injection with a fine needled syringe. Each area takes 15 minutes. You will be given a local anesthetic before the treatment, so you shouldn’t feel any pain.
Redness, swelling and maybe a little itching or stinging are normal, but these should dissipate fairly quickly – within a day or two at the most. You will be able to get on with your everyday activities straight after treatment, and can disguise any redness with makeup if required.
