As we age, lines, wrinkles, and lack of facial volume can change how we look. While there are a variety of surgical procedures available to address moderate to severe signs of aging, some individuals may prefer a non-surgical option. Dermal fillers are a popular non-surgical treatment option to address signs of facial aging. Read on to learn more about dermal fillers, specifically Juvederm.

How Does Juvederm Work?

Juvederm is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. HA works by attracting moisture, helping to combat signs of facial aging. The Juvederm family of fillers consists of a number of formulations to address different concerns.

Juvederm can be used in the following ways:

  • Lip augmentation
  • Nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Chin and jawline augmentation
  • Undereye bags
  • Cheek augmentation

Who is a Candidate for Dermal Fillers Like Juvederm?

Juvederm can be a great way for many individuals to achieve their aesthetic goals. Ideal candidates are those who are seeking facial rejuvenation without surgery, who are generally healthy, and who have realistic expectations. Those who are pregnant or nursing or who have bleeding disorders may not be ideal candidates. To learn more about if Juvederm is right for you, please schedule a consultation at our office.

What Is Juvederm Treatment Like?

The Juvederm procedure is fairly straightforward. First, your skin will be cleansed, and your injector will then skillfully place the Juvederm beneath the skin using a fine needle. The entire process usually takes 15-20 minutes to complete.

Following Juvederm treatment, there is no downtime required. However, for optimal results, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, hot environments, and alcohol consumption for the first 48 hours. Also, be sure to avoid massaging the treatment area as this could cause the filler to migrate.

Results should be seen after a couple of weeks. Each formulation of Juvederm can last for a different amount of time, though dermal fillers usually last around one year.
