Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler that can be used to reverse the signs of aging by instantly smoothing away wrinkles and providing patients with radiant, youthful looking skin after one treatment.
How Does it Work?
Youthful, radiant and healthy skin is packed full of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). As you get older, sun exposure and other factors contribute to reducing the amount of HA that is naturally present in the skin. This gradual lack of HA causes the skin to lose its structure and volume, creating undesirable wrinkles and frown lines. Dermal fillers like Juvederm provide patients with an extremely safe and effective way to replenish the skin with HA, increasing its volume, while simultaneously smoothing away unwanted skin folds and wrinkles.
How Many Sessions Will I Need to See Results?
Juvederm produces visible results after one treatment. After this time, you can choose to increase the amount of filler in certain areas if you feel it has not achieved the results you desired. The majority of patients receive between 1-2 syringes of Juviderm per visit. The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, after which time you can return to your normal daily routine.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Juviderm is considered to be one of the safest dermal fillers available on the market today. Side effects are typically minimal and temporary and can include bruising, swelling and some tenderness around the treated area. However, these side effects will only last a few days and they are usually not severe enough to stop you from engaging in normal social activity.
We recommend staying out of the sun and refraining from consuming alcohol for 24 hours after your treatment.
