Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler used to smooth fine lines and facial wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance the body produces in abundance during its early years. However, as the body ages, less hyaluronic acid is produced. This can lead to loss of elasticity and skin tone, sagging skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Candidates for Juvederm
Juvederm is an appropriate cosmetic treatment for nearly anyone interested in reducing mild to
moderate signs of aging. This type of dermal filler is particularly effective on the following areas:
- Nasolabial fold (lines from the corners of the nose extending to the corners of the mouth)
- Marionette lines (begin at the outer corners of the mouth and extend to the chin)
How does it Work?
Juvederm treatments are performed by a dermatologist as an outpatient procedure. Areas Injections of the Juvederm solution are administered using a very fine needle. Topical anesthesia is often applied prior to procedure. Juvederm is now available with lidocaine (anesthetic) to make the procedure more comfortable.
Most patients are able to return to work or regular activities directly following a Juvederm
treatment. Some patients do experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection sites, which subsides on its own over time. Ice may be used to relieve swelling and irritation if needed.
What about Results?
Results of Juvederm can be seen right away and improve over the following week. Positive results may last up to a year before another treatment is needed. Visit our top rated clinic in Lawrenceville (serving Suwanee). Visit us to learn the difference of Juvederm vs Botox and the best option for you.
