Filling in facial lines and wrinkles can be quite difficult without professional help. That is because it is nearly impossible to maintain tight and toned skin as we grow older. Juvederm® is a popular injectable that utilizes a powerful substance known as hyaluronic acid to eradicate facial blemishes. In one simple appointment, this dermal filler could help you to finally look as young as you feel.
What Can Be Treated with Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is used to treat facial lines and wrinkles. This includes a cosmetic condition known as nasolabial folds. These are the deep lines that extend from the sides of a patient’s nose down to their mouth. In addition to the facial expressions we make, sunlight and smoking can also cause nasolabial folds. Some patients also use Juvederm® products to add volume to their cheeks to create a smooth and balanced appearance.
Can Anyone Get Juvederm®?
This is considered a non-invasive treatment, and this means it is an excellent treatment option for the vast majority of patients. As long as you are a relatively healthy adult with no serious skin conditions, then you will most likely be a great candidate. It is also important for patients to quit smoking in the weeks before and after their procedure.
The Average Dermal Filler Appointment
Most patients are in and out of our office in just 30 minutes. The injection specialist simply injects the Juvederm® into the preselected areas and then you can be on your way. Many people refer to this as a lunchtime procedure because of how quick and simple it is.
Following Your Treatment
The results of your injections should be apparent immediately following your treatment session. Any redness or swelling should disappear within just a few hours. Most patients enjoy their youthful new appearance for at least six or seven months. Those who take care of their skin and follow the aftercare instructions given to them might be able to maintain the results for a year or longer.
As the wrinkles and lines become apparent once again due to the natural aging process, patients often schedule additional follow-up appointments for more Juvederm® injections. Due to the unique blend of ingredients in Juvederm®, this particular injectable can typically be used as many times as the patient would like over the years.
