When you look in the mirror, does your reflection show a face that is losing its youthful firmness? Is the skin on your face sagging and changing shape as you age? If so, Juvederm® may be the answer. Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is injected under the skin to minimize wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, keeping skin smooth and hydrated as it binds with moisture. As you age, your ability to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes, but have the solution.
What Is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable treatment that fills in lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a younger looking appearance. Juvederm® is made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that can attract moisture and can absorb many times its own weight in water. It occurs naturally in the body but diminishes with age. This is why young skin is more hydrated and less wrinkled.
Juvederm® restores hyaluronic acid levels selectively. This means it systematically works where it is most needed. When it is injected into the wrinkled areas of your face, it attracts moisture to those areas, plumps up the skin, and makes your wrinkles less noticeable.
If you want to look younger and diminish the signs of aging in your face, but you aren’t interested in plastic surgery, Juvederm® might be the solution.
Juvederm® benefits include:
- Treatment is quick, taking an hour or less
- Immediate results that people will notice
- Results appear natural because hyaluronic acid is natural
- Non-surgical treatment
- Minimal side effects and no downtime
Would I Make A Good Candidate For Juvederm® Treatment?
Juvederm® works by supplying the skin with hyaluronic acid, something that naturally occurs in the body. Juvederm® is FDA approved for the treatment of adults, 18 and older, who are looking for a more youthful appearance.
Good candidates for Juvederm® treatment include those with:
- Moderate to severe folds, lines, and wrinkles on their face
- Thin or wrinkled lips
- Expression lines
- Unwanted shape or facial contours
The first step to receiving this treatment is to set up a consultation with one of our doctors. At this appointment, you will discuss the look you want to achieve and make a plan of action to achieve your goals. Your treatment plan will be personalized just for you.
The Juvederm® Treatment Process
Your actual Juvederm® treatment will not take much time. Our doctor will numb the area to be treated before carefully injecting Juvederm® into the upper layer of your skin. It will start to work immediately, and you will notice a difference in your appearance right away.
You may experience a little bit of redness, stiffness or swelling after treatment. This is completely normal and doesn’t last long. Applying ice to the treated area can speed the return to normal skin tone and appearance.
How Long Will My Juvederm® Treatment Results Last?
The results of Juvederm® can last up to a year. It will gradually absorb and be metabolized by your body. As this occurs, you can schedule a repeat treatment to replace the hyaluronic acid your body has metabolized.
