Many of us experience wrinkles and other facial problems as we age. While aging isn’t a bad thing, the early signs of aging, however, can make us look tired, disinterested, old, and even unapproachable sometimes.
Many people are conscious about the wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and folds that become visible on their face as they age. Some even purposefully avoid social gatherings and special events because they’re overly conscious about their appearance. This can lead to setbacks in their social life, career, and even personal life.
A lot of people seek out medical procedures like facelifts to fix this problem, but most are hesitant because cosmetic surgeries are often intrusive and require a lot of downtime, which they don’t have in their busy lives. A surefire way to fix all your facial issues with no intrusive methods and half the time is Juvederm.
Facial volume loss is a natural part of the aging process and can result in visible signs like wrinkles, sunken eyes, and flattened cheeks. With a dermal filler formula like the Juvederm family, youthful volume can be instantly restored to the skin for a rejuvenated appearance.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that’s effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles to restore the youthfulness to your face. It’s FDA approved, non-intrusive, virtually risk-free, and provides long-lasting results.
It has even been proven to be longer lasting than most other dermal fillers. It’s made from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring chemical in the body. Hyaluronic acid is found in the human body, which rules out any question of allergic reactions or rejection by the body.
While there are other effective treatments to reduce the early signs of aging, Juvederm is proven to be longer-lasting and much more effective than most.
Juvederm is a family of injectable dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin, providing moisture and volume. When the formula is injected below the skin, wrinkles and folds in the lower face are instantly filled in for a smoother appearance. As the body breaks down the formula, results will begin to diminish, or a touch-up session can be performed.
Who is a Candidate for Juvederm?
Candidates for Juvederm are those who want to smooth out wrinkles and folds in the lower face or add subtle volume to the facial features. Dermal fillers like Juvederm effectively improve wrinkles that are static and present even when the face is relaxed. Juvederm comes in several different formulas depending on your specific concerns including:
- Juvederm Vollure – fills in lines around the nose and mouth
- Juvederm Volbella – adds subtle volume to the lips
- Juvederm Voluma – adds volume to the cheeks for a lifted appearance
Juvederm fillers can be combined with each other to treat several concerns at once, or can be used alongside other formulas like Botox or Dysport. Those that are pregnant or breastfeeding or have severe skin allergies may not be candidates for treatment with Juvederm.
Juvederm requires no additional preparation before undergoing the treatment. If you’re in good general health and practice living a healthy lifestyle, have realistic expectations, and are seeking to make some changes in your appearance, then Juvederm is the treatment for you.
Make sure you discuss any questions and queries with your doctor. Talk about what you want to accomplish from the procedure, the results you expect, and potential risks and side effects. Juvederm can also be used to augment the lips. So if you’ve always wanted better-shaped lips or are not satisfied with the current shape of yours, Juvederm is a procedure worth considering for that reason as well.
The Treatment Process
Prior to treatment with Juvederm, the skin will be cleansed and patients will have the option of topical numbing cream to maximize their comfort. Next, Adley will then place a small amount of Juvederm in the target area around the mouth and nose. The injection process typically takes about 15 minutes to complete.
What Areas can be Treated Using this Innovative Filler?
You can treat practically any area of the face using Juvederm. It can treat creases and lines around the nose, forehead, and mouth. Juvederm is also effective in recontouring the face, improving the appearance of scars, especially ones caused by acne, as well as enhancing and segmenting the shape of your lips. The treatment is quick, generally painless, and requires no downtime. The results are long-lasting and effective, and you’ll start noticing them right away.
The Benefits of Juvederm
There are multiple benefits to this procedure. It’s cost-effective, long-lasting, has minimal side effects, virtually no risks, and is completely non-surgical. It treats the appearance of wrinkles to give you a more youthful appearance. While most dermal fillers are granular in texture, Juvederm is smooth in consistency, giving you smoother, more natural results.
Recovery and Results
There is no downtime needed after treatment with Juvederm. Some swelling, redness, and itching at the injection site may occur but should resolve within a few hours. The results of Juvederm are instant for smoother, younger looking skin. These results can last for up to a year or longer depending on the specific formula used and can be maintained with a touch-up session.
