Juvederm® can fill lines and wrinkles, and it’s primarily used for the face. The formula is delivered using injections, and to prevent discomfort, the treatment area is numbed with anesthetic.
As a cosmetic filler, Juvederm® works great for wrinkles, but it can also be effective for plumping your lips. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally within your skin, and it’s the main ingredient inside the formula.
When you receive Juvederm® injections, the formula is injected beneath your skin, and it will add volume to the area. Over time, the solution will be completely absorbed by your body, and the results will fade away.
Like other cosmetic fillers, Juvederm® offers temporary results, and after your body has absorbed the formula, you’ll need additional treatments.
How Juvederm® Can Make You Look Years Younger
Several top cosmetic fillers are made with collagen, and they’re used to plump the skin. Juvederm® is different because it’s formulated with hyaluronic acid, and since this acid is found naturally inside of your body, it won’t cause an allergic reaction. Another benefit of this treatment is the duration of the results, which tend to last longer than most other cosmetic fillers.
What Can Be Treated?
Before receiving your injections, you should know what areas of your body can be treated. Some of the common areas targeted are the forehead, nose, mouth and face, and it also works well for facial contouring.
Many patients use this product to enhance the size and shape of their lips. After a single treatment session, these areas will show significant improvement.
What to Expect
Once the solution flows into the target area, it will begin to fill the hollow spaces and diminish the appearance of unwanted wrinkles. Most patients experience minimal discomfort. A major benefit of using Juvederm® is the lack of allergy testing, which isn’t needed because the formula isn’t made from animal byproducts.
The results from the treatment are visible immediately after the treatment, and depending on the specific formula used, the results can last for up to 12 months. Treatments can be safely repeated at our office for ongoing benefits.
Learn More About Juvederm®
Hyaluronic acid is a natural, sugar-based compound, and it occurs naturally inside of your body. This acid is important for maintaining nutrients and moisture levels inside of your skin cells, and when your skin has plenty of hyaluronic acid, it will look supple and youthful. Unfortunately, as you grow older, your skin begins to lose its ability to produce enough hyaluronic acid, and once you don’t have enough, you’ll develop an old, tired appearance.
Juvederm® works because it replenishes your skin’s supply of HA. By injecting the formula into certain areas of your face, we can use the formula to make you look and feel much younger than your true age.
