Juvederm Injectible Filler Treatment
Juvederm Injectable Gel is a smooth gel filler used to instantly improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles and folds on the face. Men and women use Juvederm treatments to look more youthful without the downtime attributed to facelifts or some laser treatments. Areas that are often treated include the lines around the mouth and nose, chin and lips. Juvederm treatments can be done over a lunch hour with results lasting up to one year.
What is Juvederm Injectable Gel?
Juvederm is a smooth non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid gel that is FDA approved to treat fine lines, wrinkles and folds on the face. It is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the skin. With age, hyaluronic acid levels decline, causing skin to become dry, less supple and lose volume. Juvederm replaces the lost hyaluronic acid, reducing the look of lines and folds while improving skin texture and hydration. It features the exclusive HYLACROSS technology that creates a smooth consistency gel and delays breakdown in the skin, leading to smoother, longer lasting results. Juvederm is now available with lidocaine, a numbing medicine, to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
How does it work?
Juvederm works as a wrinkle filler in two ways. There is immediate improvement in the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles and folds by replacing lost volume. Juvederm also restores the skin's natural moisture level that is lost due to aging, sun exposure and other environmental factors.
What to expect ?
Juvederm treatments are quick with little down time. Treatments could be even be completed over a lunch hour! Each treatment is individualized to the patient and his or her areas of concern. You can expect to see immediate improvement in the treated areas, with results lasting up to one year with full correction. The amount of Juvederm required for full correction will vary based on the area of concern and degree of volume loss. The most common side effects are injection site swelling, redness and bruising. Icing immediately after the injections can help to reduce these symptoms.
