Types of Juvederm carried at our Portland MedSpa
Each Juvederm product that our injectors use at our MedSpa has it’s own unique benefit and target area. The MedSpa at Gorin Plastic Surgery utilizes all of the Juvederm line to develop specialized treatment plans tailored to each individual patient’s aesthetic goals.
Is Juvederm Safe?
Juvederm has been FDA approved since 2006 for its dermal fillers and with any skin injection procedure comes a risk of infection, however your injectors are prepared for this if this should occur and have the ability to treat you. By law it is required to state all risks that are possible with any cosmetic augmentation, although our Medspa has a very high standard for the experience of our injectors and we take great pride in our consistent 5 star patient service.

Juvederm injections may be the solution you’re looking for to reclaim youthful skin and achieve a firm and natural look by smoothing out wrinkles such as crows feet, forehead lines, glabellar lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lip lines, and lines around the lips. Juvederm injections can add fullness to thin lips and tear troughs, contour the cheeks, fill in cleft chins and shape the jawline.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
These products should not be used in patients who have severe allergies, marked by a history of anaphylaxis or history or presence of multiple severe allergies, and should not be used in patients with a history of allergies to Gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine contained in these products.
- Do not inject into blood vessels. Introduction of these products into the vasculature may lead to embolization, occlusion of the vessels, ischemia, or infarction. Take extra care when injecting soft-tissue fillers; for example, inject the product slowly and apply the least amount of pressure necessary. Rare, but serious, adverse events associated with the intravascular injection of soft-tissue fillers in the face have been reported and include temporary or permanent vision impairment, blindness, cerebral ischemia or cerebral hemorrhage leading to stroke, skin necrosis, and damage to underlying facial structures. Immediately stop the injection if a patient exhibits any of the following symptoms: changes in vision, signs of a stroke, blanching of the skin, unusual pain during or shortly after the procedure. Patients should receive prompt medical attention and, possibly, evaluation by an appropriate healthcare professional specialist should an intravascular injection occur
- Product use at specific sites in which an active inflammatory process (skin eruptions such as cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives) or infection is present should be deferred until the underlying process has been controlled
- In order to minimize the risk of potential complications, these products should only be used by healthcare professionals who have appropriate training, experience, and knowledge of facial anatomy
- Healthcare professionals are encouraged to discuss the potential risks of soft-tissue injections with their patients prior to treatment and ensure that patients are aware of signs and symptoms of potential complications
