Reverse the Signs of Aging
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable gel formulation used to gently reverse the many signs of aging that are seen on the face, including the improvement of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, crows feet, sending lips, and loosening skin. Because of its ability to plump up the contours of different parts of the face, Juvederm has been used to add volume to the lips, sculpt the cheeks, to restore our younger-looking facial form. It is synthesized from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It is then formulated into a smooth gel infused with the anesthetic lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during the treatment. Hyaluronic acid works in combination with collagen and elastin to give the skin volume and create an underlying support structure.
Why should I consider using Juvederm?
Juvederm is a great option for patients who want a longer lasting solution for filling in deeper creases, hollowed areas, and furrows that make the face look tired and old. It’s smooth gel formulation makes it easier to administer because it flows more easily into the indicated areas during injection and creates a smoother, more natural looking finish. Juvederm is also safe and effective and its use can be customized to individually fit the patient’s requirement. It is a great option for smoothing out the patient’s smile or laugh lines around the mouth and the eyes, restoring fullness or enhancing the shape of the lips, and recreating the contour of the jawline.
How does it work?
As deeper wrinkles and skin creases begin to form around the patient’s face, the skin also loses much of its internal structure, which contributes to the aggravation of the condition. With the help of Juvederm, the skin’s underlying support structure can be augmented because the hyaluronic acid content of the formulation is able to attract water into the affected areas to hydrate the skin and make it less prone to wrinkling. Juvederm also promotes the production of the skins natural collagen to reinvigorate skin cells. The combination of these two actions produces younger looking, more vibrant skin.
What results should I expect from the use of Juvederm?
Juvederm has been shown to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the patient’s mouth and nasal areas. After a single treatment with Juvederm, facial lines, wrinkles, and hollowed areas of the face are filled in and the results can last for up to a year.
What side effects are common with Juvederm?
Although Juvederm is generally a very well tolerated formulation, possible side effects include temporary redness, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites that are expected to improve about a week after the initial injection.
