While some patients go for a treatment such as Botox® (which relaxes the muscles that cause these wrinkles), others opt for a dermal filler such as JUVÉDERM®.
As many people age and the skin loses some elasticity, wrinkles start to set in around the forehead, eyes, cheeks, nose and mouth. Since you’re reading this, you’ve probably experienced some of this yourself!
What Is JUVÉDERM? How Does It Work?
JUVÉDERM is a collection of cosmetic fillers, each made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in skin that helps it retain moisture, soften texture, and increase volume (thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles).
JUVÉDERM products are used to help restore skin to its age-correct texture and volume and to reverse the effects of wrinkles and skin volume loss.
JUVÉDERM is a particularly helpful treatment for patients who want to limit the appearance of lines around the cheeks and mouth (such as vertical lip lines, mouth corner lines, smile lines, and Marionette lines).
Oftentimes, JUVÉDERM is referred to as a “liquid facelift” as it can provide many of the benefits you are looking for…without surgery.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Every patient is different, but typically full results can be seen in approximately 2 weeks. Also, dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM typically last anywhere from 1-2 years.
Why should I consider JUVÉDERM® products?
Skin volume loss and wrinkling can cause your face to look tired or older than it should. With JUVÉDERM, you can restore the youthful look and feel of your skin.
How many treatments will I need to see results?
Most patients see their desired results in only one treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results with JUVÉDERM products typically last for about 9-12 months after a single treatment.
Is there anything I need to do after the treatment?
For the first 24 hours following treatment with JUVÉDERM products, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive exposure to sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages. Failure to do so may result in minor temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site.
Does treatment with JUVÉDERM products require any incisions in the skin?
No, there are no incisions required with treatment, which means that recovery time is minimal.
