Juvederm® is a cosmetic filler approved by the FDA to treat the loss of facial volume and plump wrinkles around the mouth and nose areas. Its active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in your skin that maintains hydration and adds volume. This substance’s production decreases with time, causing skin to lose its volume and allowing lines to form.
Juvederm® replaces lost hyaluronic acid and provides a fuller, more youthful appearance to your face, along with filling a variety of lines and wrinkles. If you’re looking for better skin quality with fewer tell-tale signs of aging, we encourage you to learn about what Juvederm® can do for you.
This treatment is different from other dermal fillers due to its unique formulation. A patented technology known as Hylacross links and binds individual chains of hyaluronic acid and places it into a smooth gel. The consistency of this gel adds to the smooth and long-lasting results provided by Juvederm®.
Juvederm® can address the wrinkles and folds on the nose and mouth regions, and it can also add lost volume to the cheek area. It can treat smile lines, marionette lines, corner lines and those tiny vertical lines that are common around the lips.
What to Expect
Your Juvederm® session should only last about 15 to 30 minutes total. The filler is simply injected into the targeted area, and you can expect to feel only minimal discomfort. Usually only one treatment is necessary to achieve the desired results, and the results can last for up to a year. This is significantly longer than other dermal filler treatments.
One of the great benefits of this treatment is that the use of hyaluronic acid requires no allergy testing for patients. This substance is natural and biodegradable, containing no animal products. The treatment is non-invasive, so you can return to most normal activities immediately following your session. However, it is best to avoid strenuous exercise for at least a day.
