What is JUVEDERM®?
Ever since its FDA-approval in 2006, JUVEDERM® has been beloved by the public as one of the most effective injectables available today. This hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is specially tailored to provide patient comfort and youthful, natural-looking results.
JUVEDERM® can be used to treat a wide range of facial wrinkles, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
The results of a single JUVEDERM® injection session can correct these wrinkles for 6-12 months, so patients don’t have to worry about coming in for frequent, routine injections to maintain changes.
How Does it Work?
JUVEDERM® is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical in the body. As people get older, the amount of this chemical naturally produced within the body begins to decline. This leads to looser, more relaxed skin. During a JUVEDERM® injection session, hyaluronic acid is injected into the dermal tissue, restoring lost volume and smoothness to the treatment area.
What sets JUVEDERM® apart from other dermal fillers is the specific way that the hyaluronic acid gel is created. JUVEDERM® is made using hylacross technology that leads to a smoother, more malleable gel than most other dermal fillers. This brings patients results that look and feel more natural than other dermal filler treatments.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
Each injection session takes about 20 minutes to complete and is made more comfortable by a mild anesthetic. Referred to as lidocaine, this anesthetic is mixed into the dermal filler itself. A single injection session leads to wrinkle and fine line improvements that can last for 6-12 months.
Once the injection process is over, most patients experience little to no downtime. While side effects like pain, tenderness, firmness, swelling, bruising, itching and discoloration are possible, they usually subside within a few days of undergoing treatment.
Am I a Candidate for JUVEDERM®?
The ideal candidates for JUVEDERM® are in good physical health and are interested in improving the appearance of their facial lines and wrinkles. Unfortunately, it is not a viable aesthetic solution for individuals with severe allergies and skin infections.
