What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a cosmetic procedure that uses gel fillers to reduce the appearance of lines around the nose and mouth area. The advantage of using Juvederm® is that the results may last up to one year.
How Does Juvederm® Reduce Wrinkles?
Juvaderm® reduces wrinkles by replacing the natural production of hyaluronic acid. The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to hydrate the skin. As a person ages, their body produces less hyaluronic acid, which leads to the onset of wrinkles and folds on the face. The purpose of Juvederm® is to reduce the appearance of those wrinkles and folds by smoothing out the skin with gel fillers.
What is Involved in Injecting Juvederm®?
The Juvederm® procedure is as simple as injecting the targeted areas with filler to reduce the wrinkles. Typically the procedure is quick and performed as an outpatient procedure in our office.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
A Juvederm® procedure usually only takes a couple of minutes.
Are Juvederm® Treatments Painful?
Juvederm® treatments are done with very fine needles and are usually painless with the exception of some minor stinging from the needle. If you have any reservations, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the site to numb it.
How Long Does it Take to See Results with Juvederm®?
Patients will see results instantly after their Juvederm® procedure. The areas that receive injections will appear smoother and fuller. The skin will appear more youthful.
How Long Do the Results from Juvederm® Last?
Results from Juvederm® treatments usually last anywhere from six to nine months. Patients who receive injections around the eye area have reported seeing results for up to one year.
