Wrinkles, creases, and fine lines can cause us a lot of worries. They add years to our appearance and make us look tired. The worst part is that sometimes, they may even start appearing in your twenties as signs of premature aging, taking away your once-youthful looks.
However, with Juvéderm, you can easily correct these age lines and say goodbye to wrinkles. This injectable treatment has been proven effective time and time again. It was approved by the FDA back in 2006 and uses hyaluronic acid as its base.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world. It is a type of dermal filler, meaning that it is injected into your skin in order to literally “fill” in the wrinkles in your skin.
In other words, Juvéderm helps restore volume to your facial tissues. It is especially effective in areas where your skin is thinner, like the areas around the nose and your mouth where laugh lines form.
Juvéderm is specifically designed to correct age lines and help patients attain more youthful skin. Usually, patients receive Juvéderm injections in their faces, especially on their cheeks and around their mouth and nose.
What Is the Injection Procedure Like?
The duration of a Juvéderm treatment session depends on the health of the patient, the results they wish to achieve, and the number of injections required. The procedure can take anywhere from 15 minutes to about an hour.
Juvéderm comes in a pre-packed sterile syringe that can be directly used by the doctor. This simplifies the entire procedure, cutting down the time required as well. We will apply a topical anesthetic cream to the concerned areas so as to minimize any mild pain or discomfort you may feel when the injections are administered.
This is followed by the injections of Juvéderm into key areas of your skin, where it will fill in age lines and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful and toned appearance.
The results of the injections can be seen immediately and can last for about six months up to a year. The effects of Juvéderm last much longer than Botox or Dysport. You also won’t have to worry about allergic reactions, because Juvéderm poses little to no risk of this. This is because it is composed of only biocompatible hyaluronic acid.
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvéderm?
You will likely be an ideal candidate for Juvéderm if you have age lines and wrinkles on your face that make you look older than you actually are. It is perfect for candidates who want to avoid surgical rejuvenation. You must have realistic expectations from the procedure.
