When to Consider Juvederm
March 20, 2017
Juvederm® is at the cutting-edge of dermal filler technologies. This FDA-approved solution can instantly restore lost volume across the visage. It can also be used to create increased facial symmetry and balance. Both men and women can use these treatments to enhance their natural look and regain a more youthful appearance.
Is Juvederm® Right for You?
There are several different Juvederm® formulas for addressing various cosmetic concerns. The right formula for you will depend on a variety of factors, including your aesthetic goals and the extent of your volume loss and/or wrinkling. Juvederm® is designed to instantly resolve static facial wrinkles, or creases that remain visible even when the face is at a state of rest.
How Does It Work?
Juvederm® can both restore lost volume and create new volume in areas that lacked sufficient fullness before. Largely comprised of hyaluronic acid, this revolutionary dermal filler is easily recognized and absorbed by the body over time. That’s because hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally-occurring. It exists at the very foundation of the skin to provide structural support. When injected into the dermis, it instantly binds with nearby skin cells, attracting water molecules. This has a rapid, plumping effect that quickly fills in fine lines, wrinkles and all other areas lacking necessary fullness.
Each formula has a specific, FDA-approved application and is designed to work a bit differently. The most common form of Juvederm® is used for the instant treatment of fine lines and wrinkles in certain key areas. The results of the treatment can last for as long as 12 months, depending on the situation.
What to Expect
Much like BOTOX®, Juvederm® injections are performed in the comfort of our office without the need for local anesthesia. We do offer a topical anesthetic for patients who are concerned about discomfort. During treatment, minute amounts of the solution are strategically injected across the target area to restore or enhance volume.
One of the great things about Juvederm® is that virtually no downtime is involved after the treatment. Patients are free to resume most all of their normal activities immediately following their injection section. All that you have to do is be a bit patient as the solution binds with the surrounding skin cells and attracts the water molecules that are necessary for creating a fuller, smoother appearance at the surface of the skin.
