If you’re looking for a way to correct wrinkles that are appearing on your face, or for a method to address folds that develop along the nose and mouth, Juvéderm could be the answer for you.
Issues such as frown lines and crow’s feet are common as you age. Smile and laugh lines can be distracting, and make you look older than you are. Juvéderm can reverse these signs of aging, so you can look youthful once again.
Juvéderm can correct moderate to severe wrinkles and belongs to a family of injectables with hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm’s active ingredient. Juvéderm has a smooth consistency, which differs from other hyaluronic products that are granular. The smoother consistency results in a malleable gel, which simulates the naturally occurring sugar in the human body. Injectable hyaluronic acid retains water and provides cushioning at the injection site. It adds volume and creates a smoother appearance to the skin. Because Juvéderm is dermal filler that isn’t extracted from animals, an allergic reaction is unlikely.
Patients who receive Juvéderm treatments will notice the benefits immediately, as facial wrinkles and the creases about the eyes and mouth disappear. You will have smoother, youthful skin as soon as you walk out from treatment.
Juvéderm is a customizable treatment. It is administered in small increments to suit your needs. It won’t give you the artificial and expressionless look that plastic surgery often delivers. Your doctor will work with you to determine how much treatment you need to achieve the look you desire.
Also, Juvéderm results are long lasting. You won’t need additional treatment for months at a time. Once you achieve the look you want, you simply come in for maintenance treatments every few months, according to your doctor’s recommendations.
Additionally, Juvéderm treatments are less expensive than traditional plastic surgery. You also don’t have to deal with the pain, risks, and scars associated with plastic surgery when you get Juvéderm – even though you will get the smooth and youthful skin you want.
Finally, there is no downtime associated with Juvéderm. When you get the treatment, you don’t have to take significant time off work or other commitments, so you don’t have to readjust your busy life. The injection site will be sore initially, but the soreness will dissipate within a couple of days. You can still go to work, even while you heal.
Is Juvéderm Safe?
Juvéderm is considered a safe and effective treatment. It is FDA approved to smooth out wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance. As with all products, there is a small risk when getting Juvéderm. Your doctor will discuss these risks with you prior to administering the injection. You may experience some swelling and soreness at the injection site after treatment. These symptoms should subside within a few days.
