Are You a Juvederm® Candidate?
Almost everyone is a candidate for Juvéderm® treatment. Juvéderm® is non-allergenic, not derived from animal sources, and a good choice for patients who have tried collagen injections but did not experience the results they wanted.
With age our skin becomes thinner, drier, and loses elasticity and collagen – making it more likely to sag and wrinkle.
Sun damage, muscle movement, weight loss and (good ‘ol) gravity compound this issue. Juvederm is uniquely formulated to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth including smile lines, marionette lines and vertical creased around the lips.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable gel that can immediately smooth facial wrinkles and restore youthful fullness to areas of diminished volume. Good candidates for Juvéderm® filler treatment are those patients who would like to improve the appearance of facial lines or augment the lips.With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year.
What areas are treated with Juvederm?
Juvederm is most commonly used to address the lines around the nose and face that deepen as we age. It helps with
- Smile lines or laugh
- Hollow areas
- Parentheses lines (lines from the nose to corners of your mouth)
- Marionette lines (lines formed near the chin)
- Vertical creases above/around the lips
- Restoring lip volume
- Defining the lip border
- Reducing dark circles beneath the eyes
- Rejuvenating ear lobes
- Smoothing deep scarring
- Providing youthful definition to chin and cheeks
How does Juvederm work?
Juvederm® smooths out facial wrinkles and lines by using an ingredient called hyaluronic acid.* A version of this chemical appears naturally in the human body. In Juvederm®, the hyaluronic acid is formulated in such a way that allows it to continuously attract moisture, even as body begins to break down the molecules in this filler.
This ability allows patients to see an immediate improvement from the injection of the gel under the skin, continue seeing positive outcomes even as the body begins to slowly metabolize it, and enjoy long-lasting improvements.
Is Juvederm safe?
Yes. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and therefore it also dissolves naturally with time and is integrated into your body’s tissues. Over time, the molecules dissolve and turn into water as they depart without leaving any trace in your body.
What to Expect
How much Juvederm do I need?
This varies depending on the number of areas you want treated and your desired outcome. However, on average, most clients receive 1 or 2 syringes of Juvederm per visit.
How much downtime?
You can return to your normal activities right away. As with any injectable dermal filler, temporary swelling, redness and bruising can occur at the treatment site. Keep in mind that these symptoms are usually temporary, resolving within 1 to 7 days.
How quickly will I see results?
You will see near immediate improvement after your Juvederm injections — usually within four days, with results that can last between 1-2 years.
