Juvederm is one of the most effective cosmetic filler treatments used. This type of injectable treatment is performed on our patients who wish to decrease the visual appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The results are almost immediate, and most individuals enjoy tighter, smoother skin with less folding of the epidermis. If you are wary of BOTOX® or specialized chemical injections, you may want to consider Juvederm.
A Unique Filler Treatment
Most filler injections work to puff up the skin. This can be accomplished in several different ways. Juvederm is different than most other skin-lifting and skin-tightening treatments because it uses a natural fluid to draw moisture to the tissues just beneath the skin. It is usually performed to correct thin, wrinkled skin around the eyes, lips, cheeks, and jaw line.
The gel contains hyaluronic acid. This acid fills the areas of tissue that supports the skin in the affected area. The gel draws water and lymphatic fluid to the tissue, and the result is tighter, more elastic skin. Because the treatment hydrates the tissue, collagen production may increase. This is an added bonus for those who are experiencing aging skin due to poor structural support.
How We Perform The Procedure
We schedule a consultation with our patients and outline the entire procedure. In most cases, a mild, local anesthetic is used to numb the skin and supporting tissues. The injections are made at strategic points around the cheeks, jaw, or lips. A typical treatment session can be completed in less than 30 minutes.
It’s possible to see positive results within 24 hours. Although Juvederm is considered a temporary cosmetic treatment, results often last for two to three months. The gel itself is gradually absorbed by the body, but the increased volume of water lasts much longer. Sometimes, a second filler treatment session one or two weeks after the first injections can be performed.
A Few Things To Remember
Any type of filler gel treatment can help tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but all injection fluid types may not be suitable depending on the patient’s medical history. When we sit down with our clients and go over the Juvederm procedure, we will discuss your medical history.
