Juvederm ® is a cosmetic treatment that has hyaluronic acid as its base. This substance naturally occurs in muscle and skin tissue, which is why it is well tolerated by most women and men. Any person who has deep creases and folds, as well as lines and wrinkles including surgical and acne scars, may be a good candidate for Juvederm ®. It is used to fill sunken places in the cheeks and around the eyes to give a plumper and firmer appearance. It is also used to increase the size of thin lips due to aging and gives an overall more youthful appearance.
Some people deal with the aging process better than others do. When wrinkles, deep lines, and sagging skin appear, it may make the person feel concerned about the way they look. This can drain confidence and energy making it an effort to face everyday life. Minimally invasive cosmetic treatments such as Juvederm ® may change your appearance so much you look as young as you feel. Juvederm ® is also a recommended treatment for scarring from surgery, acne or injury. If the scars are depressions in the skin, the filler can plump them up to be even with the surrounding skin.
Most people are good candidates for Juvederm ® treatments, but it is recommended for pregnant women to wait until after they deliver and are finished breastfeeding before they undergo treatment. During your consultation with our expert, you will learn more about the procedure and how it can benefit your appearance. It is important that you have realistic expectations about the outcome, so you are satisfied with the results.
Juvederm ® is not a moisturizer or medication. It is filler that lifts sagging skin and deep folds on the face. Juvederm ® is a combination of hyaluronic acid and a gel that has a smooth, malleable consistency. Our trained technician will inject it beneath the skin and it will remain there, drawing moisture to the area. The procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes and there is minimal discomfort or downtime.
Juvederm ® works immediately and the difference may be seen after 24 hours. It is important to avoid direct sunlight for two days after the treatment. You may need a touch-up treatment after about nine months, but touch-up treatments use less product and take less time.
If you are not happy with the way your face is aging or if you have sun damage and acne or other scars, Juvederm ® may be your best cosmetic option for smoother, younger-looking skin. You may be thinking about a facelift later in life, but right now, you are looking into other cosmetic procedures that are less invasive but give good results.
