If you want smoother skin, fuller lips, and a more youthful appearance, your doctor may recommend Juvéderm. This specialized cosmetic dermal filler harnesses hyaluronic acid, which is injected directly into the skin or the lips to boost and smooth out your complexion – with lasting results.
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is naturally found throughout the human body, such as in the eyes, joints, and cartilage. As we get older, however, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body naturally decreases. One of the effects is that the skin begins to lose its firm, full appearance.
Juvéderm is designed specifically to help restore elasticity and fullness to the facial tissues. Let’s take a deeper look into Juvéderm and who you can talk to about achieving a smoother, more youthful glow.
How Does Juvéderm Feel?
Unlike other products containing hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm’s consistency is very smooth. Whereas most cosmetic treatments with hyaluronic acid have a granular feel to them, Juvéderm is a gel that mimics the body’s natural hyaluronic acid.
The chemical properties of Juvéderm allow the product to retain water and to soften and plump up the area where it is injected. One of the advantages of using Juvéderm is that the results are immediate.
Smoothing Out Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Juvéderm instantly fills in and eliminates wrinkles, creating a more youthful appearance as it erases lines in the face. This treatment is excellent at correcting the following cosmetic concerns:
- Crow’s feet (at the outer edges of the eyes)
- Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
- Laugh lines (nasolabial folds between the nose and outer lips)
- Thinning lips
Juvéderm creates a plumping, filling effect. Creases near the eyes and mouth disappear. One treatment usually delivers sufficient results, but you may wish to have a follow-up treatment for even better results.
Long-Lasting Dermal Filler
The plumping effect of Juvéderm lasts longer than many other cosmetic fillers. Results could last six months or even up to a full year.
One of the greatest benefits associated with Juvéderm and other cosmetic fillers is that they are a much less-invasive alternative to plastic surgery. You may experience some slight discomfort at the injection site initially, but any soreness or redness will quickly diminish. You should be able to return to your normal activities right away, and you won’t experience any downtime.
Cost-Effective and Safe Cosmetic Treatment
Not only are Juvéderm injections less invasive than surgery, but dermal fillers such as this are also a much less expensive treatment as compared to plastic surgery. It is also much safer than surgery. The FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) has approved the various versions of Juvéderm to treat wrinkles, folds, and thinning lips, which means it is officially safe for treating all of these beauty issues.
