Juvederm™ is an FDA-approved treatment program that uses a crystal-clear gel to produce a smooth, youthful appearance. It is used to fill wrinkles and enhance lips. It is made from a naturally occurring substance that exists in all living things.
Which conditions can be treated with Juvéderm™?
Juvéderm™ is an excellent choice for removing the wrinkles that result from the skin losing its volume and fullness over time. Juvéderm™ is used to fill the lines that often show up as we age and our skin begins losing some of its foundation. It is especially useful for lines around the mouth and nose. Juvéderm™ is also an excellent treatment for those who wish to have richer, fuller lips. It's gel-like substance that is completely clear and since it's made of the same hyaluronic acid our bodies already use, allergic reactions are rare.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring component of every living thing. It fills the spaces between collagen and the elastin fibers in our skin, and when we lose it during aging, wrinkles and hollows can develop. Juvéderm™ can replace this loss and therefore, reverse the wrinkles and hollows.
How does Juvéderm™ work?
Juvéderm™ is injected into the area to be treated, and its gel-like consistency fills the wrinkles or lines, or enhances the lips. It can be smoothed or sculpted after being injected, which results in attractive, natural-looking results. Juvéderm™ adds volume and hydration to smooth your face, and its benefits can last up to one year.
The effects of a Juvéderm™ treatment are noticeable immediately. You may go back to work or resume your normal activities as soon as your treatment is completed. There may be some slight redness or bruising where the injections were done, but these can be treated with makeup.
