Juvéderm® is an effective non-surgical treatment used to smooth your skin and return your facial contours to their naturally youthful and healthy state. The active ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), which stimulates collagen production in your skin, instantly restoring unwanted lines, enhancing lips, cheeks, and the jaw-line, as well as other areas. Benefits include added volume and definition of facial features while maintaining a natural, symmetrical and enhanced appearance.
How Does Juvéderm® Work?
Juvéderm® is applied with a fine needle just under the skin. The entire process takes 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the area which is being treated. Your doctor will examine your skin and measure the depth of your wrinkles or folds to best determine the level of treatment that is appropriate for you. Downtime is so minimal, you can often return to your normal activity within the same day
Are There Side Effects?
Possible side-effects include redness, itching, swelling or bumps. These reactions are usually mild to moderate and resolve within 7 days or less. A week before your procedure, it is recommended that you avoid taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs that thin the blood. This will reduce the risk of bruising at the injection site.
Is Juvéderm® Right For Me?
Juvéderm® results are immediate. Results vary for each person but the benefits are proven to last up to one year with one treatment. You may want to re-touch at points to maintain an optimal improvement in your look. Speak with your doctor and find out if you are a good a candidate for Juvederm®.
