Aging makes you wiser, but it can bring unwanted effects such as the loss of facial volume and wrinkles. The great news is that we can use treatments like Juvederm® to make you look younger and more refreshed. It helps to lift the cheeks, soften acne scars, plump the lips, enhance certain facial features and fill in loose skin, giving you a younger look overall. Here are some helpful things to know about this popular injectable.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an FDA-approved filler made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in your body begins to drop. This leads to volume loss, more pronounced wrinkles, and a generally less attractive appearance.
How It Works
Hyaluronic acid works by preventing the rapid degradation of your skin. Therefore, it can smooth and lift wrinkles and folds. The fillers usually add an efficient volume of hyaluronic acid to give you a much-needed boost. Juvederm® delivers results that reintroduce freshness and radiance, creating a more youthful appearance.
What to Expect with the Treatment
Every Juvederm® treatment starts with a complete facial examination and consultation. This is to determine the areas where increased fullness would improve facial appearance. Juvederm® is administered via injections to the treatment area, and the procedure usually takes just minutes. Before the injections, the professional cleans the treatment area using anti-bacterial agents. Since Juvederm® contains a local anesthetic, you should experience minimal discomfort.
You will notice an immediate improvement after the procedure. However, you will see full results in the days and weeks after the treatment. Many patients only require one treatment to smooth out folds, wrinkles, and plump lines. However, it all depends on the unique situation, and the injections can be repeated as needed for ongoing benefits.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
You could be an ideal candidate for this helpful treatment if you are looking to smooth out folds and wrinkles, make your lips fuller or lift loose skin. However, you won’t know for sure until you come in for a consultation.
