Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable cosmetic product used to reverse signs of aging on the face and neck. Are you interested in a fast fix for your moderate or deep wrinkles? Dermal filler injectable treatments can correct these issues in a matter of minutes.
The filler, which comes in the form of a gel, is sometimes referred to as a liquid facelift, since it is a non-surgical solution to facial aging issues.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a soft-tissue dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid (HA). Unlike injectable treatments of the past that were composed of collagen, Juvederm is composed of this naturally occurring sugar already found in the human body.
This substance, along with naturally produced collagen, is lost as we age, leaving the skin thinner and less hydrated. By replenishing hyaluronic acid in the skin tissues, skin and joint function is supported and more water is retained. Studies have also shown that dermal fillers can help enhance and boost the production of natural collagen in the body.
Juvederm treatments are effective in treating the following types of facial wrinkles:
- Marionette lines coming down from the sides of the mouth
- Parentheses lines bordering the mouth
- The nasolabial folds, which stretch from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Smoker’s lines around the lips
Treatment usage with Juvederm goes beyond filling facial creases and wrinkles. Our injection experts can inject Juvederm to enhance facial contouring, improve the appearance of certain scars, and plump hollow cheeks and thin lips.
Juvederm and other dermal fillers specifically treat wrinkles that are not related to contracted facial muscles. The shallow facial expression lines related to facial muscles can instead be corrected with the help of neuromodulators like Botox.
The Juvederm Injection Process
A Juvederm treatment is incredibly quick and easy, usually taking only half an hour or less. At the start of the treatment session, the areas to be targeted are carefully marked to serve as a guide.
The injections are then carefully delivered. Because Juvederm contains a local anesthetic called lidocaine, the area is numbed to pain or discomfort for the duration of treatment.
After the treatment session is complete, patients can go back to their daily schedule with no need for recovery time. Common mild side effects that typically go away within hours of treatment include bruising, redness, tenderness, or bumps at the injection site.
Juvederm injections can provide immediate onset results, and most people begin to see their results within the first 24 hours.
The filler’s results can last anywhere from 6 months to 1 year. Results will be dependent on the elasticity of your skin, your body’s metabolism, and the area you are filling.
How Much Does Juvederm Cost?
The price of this dermal filler is based on many factors. Cost is impacted by the number of injections required and the medical spa you choose for your treatment.
