Juvederm® is a family of injectable filler gels used to increase volume beneath the facial skin. These gels are FDA-approved and have been used for cosmetic enhancement on both men and women for decades. What sets Juvederm® apart from some other filler treatment alternatives is its use of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that draws in moisture and gives the skin a more elastic, smooth appearance. As we age, we tend to lose moisture content in the layers beneath the epidermis. Collagen production also decreases, and this results in sagging skin and wrinkles. We oftentimes recommend Juvederm® for our clients who suffer from wrinkled lip tissue.
How Juvederm® Works
Hyaluronic acid is naturally formed in the body, but many adults do not produce enough of this compound to combat the signs of aging. The malleable gel found in Juvederm® can offer you many benefits. When injected below the epidermis, the acid draws in moisture and plumps up the affected area. The effects of hyaluronic acid gel injection are almost immediately noticeable. The cushioning provided by the additional moisture results in skin and lip tissue that is smoother and without wrinkles.
The Treatment Session
The procedure involves the skillful injection of the filler into the preselected areas. Almost immediately, the acid gel holds moisture in place. The effects are indeed long-lasting, with most patients reporting positive results for up to nine months or a year or more. Our patients can resume their normal activities without much, if any, downtime.
Advantages of Juvederm® Injections
This is a non-surgical outpatient procedure performed by a skilled professional. Because no surgery is performed, no scars remain. The treatments are quick and convenient for people with busy schedules. And follow-up sessions can be performed as needed for ongoing benefits.
