JUVEDERM is a type of dermal filler that offers you a non-surgical method of targeting fine lines and wrinkles to diminish their prominence. If you have noticed that signs of aging have led to a loss of facial volume and resultant wrinkles, JUVEDERM® may be your best treatment option to help turn back the clock on aging skin.
The JUVEDERM Solution
Patients who respond best to a JUVEDERM® procedure have folds or wrinkles on the face, particularly around their nose and mouth. If this describes you, set up an initial consultation with us to make sure that JUVEDERM® is the right fit for you.
How JUVEDERM Works
JUVEDERM® contains hyaluronic acid mixed within a gel that we inject into your skin to promote increased facial volume and the minimization of lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance your body produces to attract moisture into your skin, which has a thickening effect. Skin rich in hyaluronic acid is hydrated and free of lines and wrinkles. Unfortunately, getting older leads to a loss of hyaluronic acid formation and a resultant thinning of the skin, leaving you more vulnerable to the development of wrinkles.
JUVEDERM® treatment allows us to replace the hyaluronic acid that has broken down and become depleted within your skin. By replacing it, we are helping to reverse the process that led to the formation of lines and wrinkles. Your skin will become immediately fuller, more hydrated, and you should notice an associated reduction in the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles.
Many patients wonder how long their results will last. JUVEDERM® is actually a line of products that contain various ingredients in different strengths and formulations, so the amount of time that your results will last depends upon which JUVEDERM® product you are using. However, JUVEDERM® generally offers excellent results that may last for several months to a year or more.
At some point in the future, the product will have been fully absorbed by your skin and require replacement to maintain your enhanced skin thickness. By undergoing your initial JUVEDERM® injection and follow-up treatments, you will enjoy long-lasting results.
