Start the New Year with Younger Looking Skin
- Posted on: Jan 15 2018
Start the New Year off by looking and feeling your best with Juvederm. Juvederm injections can help diminish and correct the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. If you are annoyed or embarrassed by the wrinkles and creases around your lips, eyes, chin, nose, or mouth, Juvederm might be an excellent option for you. Let’s discuss what Juvederm is and how the treatment works.
How Juvederm works
Juvederm is a gel made of hyaluronic acid. This acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that enhances volume and hydration. As the aging process goes into effect, the youthful look of our skin will deteriorate and folds and wrinkles will start to form.
Prior to your Juvederm treatment, you will have a consultation with your doctor to discuss the procedure, risks, benefits, and your expectations. When you arrive for your Juvederm procedure you will likely have an anesthetic injection. After that, Juvederm injections will be administered into the specified areas of your face. The process takes a mere 30 minutes depending on the number of injections you request. Because the procedure is so quick, many patients return to work or their regular activities the same day. You may experience some swelling and redness after the injections, but this can be diminished by holding ice in the treated area.
The results of Juvederm
Juvederm results can last about six months to one year, depending on the patient. Juvederm is U.S. FDA approved and has been used for twenty years to aid arthritic joints and eye surgeries. Juvederm injections are a non-surgical treatment and do not require allergy testing because it contains no animal proteins.
