What Is Juvederm and What Are the Benefits?
Juvederm is a gel dermal filler that can be injected into various areas in the face to provide instant results that last up to a year. It is hypo-allergenic and made with hyaluronic acid that helps to rejuvenate skin from the inside out. There are many benefits to choosing Juvederm over other forms of wrinkle treatments, but the instant results tend to speak for themselves. What’s more, because of its popularity, the treatments are now more affordable than ever.
Of course, Juvederm does much more than simply fill in lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to add volume and sculpt, all the while providing a more youthful appearance. In short, it can completely change the contours of the user’s face. It is a lot like getting a facelift, but it is simpler and less expensive.
Who is the Perfect Candidate for Juvederm Treatment?
Anyone who would like to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, add volume to their cheeks or other areas of their faces, or who simply want to get back their natural, youthful glow is the perfect candidate for Juvederm. Physicians require that their patients be 18 years of age or older and in good physical health. Men and women of all ages have discovered the product and are using it regularly to stay young.
Candidates for Juvederm are also those who may be considering traditional facelifts, collagen injections, or other cosmetic surgeries as well as those who have not had the desired results from products like Botox. It is also recommended for those who can benefit from a cheek filler since it is one of the best products out there for this application. Two different types of Juvederm are available – one designed to fill in fine lines and another for sculpting or filling deeper folds.
What Patients Can Expect from Juvederm
When you receive your Juvederm treatment, you may be given a topical or injectable anesthetic to numb the area that will be treated. Then, we will inject the product into your skin to augment wrinkles or fill in certain areas. Following the injections, we will then massage the area that was treated to ensure the proper distribution of the gel. It only takes about 15 minute in total per syringe.
For 24 hours after the treatment, it is best to avoid alcoholic beverages, strenuous activity, or prolonged exposure to the sun. Mild to moderate redness, soreness, and itching at the injection site may be present, but these symptoms typically go away on their own in seven days or less. Though the results can last as long as a year, you may need additional touch-ups in order to achieve the results you want.
