Wrinkles and loss of skin volume are a natural part of aging. Factors such as heredity, sun exposure, and lifestyle can accelerate the process. Fortunately, Juvederm® is a nonsurgical treatment to plump fine to deep wrinkles, creating a fuller more youthful appearance. Juvederm is an injectable gel filler that is safe, effective, and lasts up to one year depending upon the areas treated. It is a quick in-office procedure that produces immediate beautiful results. The results are so natural looking that Juvederm has become a popular treatment with men as well as women.
Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar substance, that is found naturally within the body. Because it is highly compatible with the body, no testing is suggested prior to your treatment. Juvederm can be used for all skin types and tones.
Juvederm’s different formulas are designed to treat specific problems. For example, the lightest solution is perfect for softening slight or superficial wrinkles. Juvederm’s moderate formulization is perfect for treating average wrinkles and folds in the forehead, brow, or smile. It is also used to create plump fuller lips. Juvederm’s densest gel formula is ideal for plumping deep wrinkles and creating more volume in the cheeks or lips. At your initial consultation, your doctor will examine your skin and recommend which treatment is the most appropriate for you.
Juvederm is administered in a short in-office procedure. You will receive a local anesthetic to prior to your treatment. The gel is carefully injected into the wrinkle or fold we are trying to fill or soften. You may receive more than one injection, depending on the area being treated.
Juvederm is associated with less pain and swelling than other types of injectable fillers. The results are immediate. Juvederm lasts for six months or longer, and you may repeat treatments to maintain your rejuvenated new look.
