Juvederm® is a newly-approved facial filler ideal for women and men looking to smooth facial lines and wrinkles or add volume to their lips. Made from hyaluronic acid, this treatment is an exciting new introduction to the world of cosmetic procedures, offering both high quality and longer-lasting results.
While many fillers rely on collagen to plump the skin and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, Juvederm relies on hyaluronic acid, making it a synthetic filler. For synthetic fillers, patients are not required to take an allergy test before receiving treatment, meaning that there is less wait time prior to receiving treatment.
Top candidates for this synthetic filler are patients seeking to reduce their age lines and wrinkles or augment their lips. Further, Juvederm can also be used for facial contouring to reduce the appearance of scars or marks caused by acne. Basically, instead of using makeup to hide aspects of your appearance, Juvederm will allow you to focus on highlighting your favorite parts!
How it works
Juvederm arrives at your doctor’s office prepackaged in a sterile, ready-to-use syringe. It has a smooth gel consistency, meaning that doctors can use thinner needles and less pressure during injection. This, in conjunction with the local anesthetic administered before the Juvederm, makes it a relatively comfortable treatment for patients to receive. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes and results typically last for six to nine months.
Is Juvederm right for you?
Juvederm is an ideal treatment for patients trying to reduce wrinkles and fine lines or enhance the plumpness of their lips. For patients with severe scarring or thinner/looser skin, Juvederm’s effectiveness may be compromised. Further, while Juvederm boasts great long-lasting results, it’s not designed to be a permanent treatment, meaning that regular treatments will be necessary to maintain results. However, the impermanence of the results makes Juvederm an ideal procedure for patients who are not sure if they want to commit to a permanent change in their appearance. Essentially, Juvederm can be a great way to dip your toe into self-care and revitalization via cosmetic procedures!
