In the battle to restore your skin’s youthful look, Juvederm is an effective weapon to fight age lines and wrinkles and to fill in deep creases. Juvederm is a highly effective gel filler consisting of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced in the skin that can hold up to a thousand times its own weight in water. That added water creates the plump look of younger, more supple skin.
How Does the Procedure Work?
After discussing your needs and expectations, our staff will determine the proper injection sites that will best target the area in need of treatment. While most patients experience only slight discomfort during the injection itself, our staff will work to keep you as comfortable as possible with the treatment and can discuss anesthetic options with you prior to the procedure.
Who Can Use Juvederm ?
Generally speaking, anyone in need of smoothing out wrinkles can use the fillers. While there can be some mild side-effects, such as redness, swelling, bruising or itchiness, they usually disappear within seven days. Patients with severe allergies should consult with our staff to determine if treatment is right for them.
Juvederm enhances the skin’s plumpness, thereby filling in wrinkles and age lines. The results typically last between nine months and one year. Touch up injections can extend those benefits further, with the injections only about half the amount of the original injection.
