Smooth, youthful skin is the desire of most people – especially as age, genetics and environmental factors begin putting years of mileage on the face. Over time, the skin starts to lose collagen, elasticity and volume, resulting in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Juvederm helps to restore volume and smoothness by replacing depleted hyaluronic acid just beneath the skin.* When injected into the dermal layers, hyaluronic acid binds to water molecules, giving the face a fuller appearance in targeted areas.* Physicians use Juvederm to treat many different types of lines and wrinkles, though it is most frequently used as a dermal filler for smile lines and marionette lines around the mouth. Many are not aware that hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in the human body. In fact, hyaluronic acid is responsible for attracting and holding water within the skin, giving it youthful volume.
What should I expect during Juvederm treatments?
Juvederm may be right for you if you are bothered by deep lines or facial folds, but are in search of a non-surgical way of addressing them. The FDA deems Juvederm safe and effective for most people, though you should consult with your doctor before undergoing treatments.
Juvederm contains both hyaluronic acid and lidocaine, the latter of which is responsible for helping numb the skin and minimize discomfort. Your doctor will need only minutes to complete the injection, and in most cases, there is no downtime.*
