If you are unhappy with changes in your facial appearance due to aging, injectables like Juvéderm can help. If you have indentations, dipped cheeks, thin lips or deep creases on your face, Juvéderm can correct them to give you a smoother, younger-looking face. Juvéderm is a filler made from hyaluronic acid, such as Restylane. Hyaluronic acid is a moisturizer that is naturally found in your body, most commonly in the skin, joints, and eyes.
On average, Juvéderm lasts anywhere between 6 to 12 months after treatment, but each patient absorbs and breaks down Hyaluronic Acid very differently. Different areas of the face, depending on the degree of their facial movement, will defuse the effect of Juvederm filler at varying rates. Other factors may also contribute to how long the Juvederm injections lasts; for instance, intensive and constant sun exposure can cause the hyaluronic acid to abate very quickly.
Being a very flexible injectable filler, Juvéderm can be used in most places where additional volume is desired. These include:
● Lip augmentation
● under the eyes
● Recess Moisturized cheeks
● Nasolabial folds (brackets around the mouth)
Due to its smoothness, some people prefer Juvéderm results in lip augmentation and treatment wherever the skin is very thin.
Very fine needles are used for Juvederm treatments to eliminate any pain or blemish. Anesthetic is sometimes mixed into the filler to make the treatment very tolerant. There may be a slight discomfort present with the first insertion, but this fades very fast as the anesthetic takes effect.
You will see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas following your procedure. Unwanted folds, wrinkles, and lack of volume in the skin will no longer be called attention. Most patients need just a single treatment to achieve optimal results which can last up to many months or more. Regular supplemental touch-up injections may be needed to achieve and maintain results.
