Have you passed a mirror and noticed a new wrinkle? Or been surprised that you look so tired? Or that your mouth seems stern? Wished that you could look as youthful as you feel?
Juvederm is one of the latest answers to your concerns about smile lines, wrinkles, lips, and even facial scars. Juvederm can help restore younger contours and give you a smooth, natural look.
It is a compound of hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar found naturally in many tissues of the body – skin, tendons, and muscles. Formulated as a gel dermal filler, it attracts water molecules under the skin, replacing the cushion we lose over time or from exposure to the sun. Allergy testing is not required, since Juvederm contains no animal-derived ingredients which can cause a reaction.
It smoothes creases and lines around the nose, mouth, and forehead, and plumps up lips. Lidocaine is added to minimize discomfort during injection. There are two Juvederm formulations – one for mild to moderate correction, and a more dense formula to fill deeper folds.
Treatments by the trained staff at A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery
are quick and convenient. Following an initial consultation and evaluation of your needs, preparation and injection takes only about 15 minutes. Usually no additional anesthetic or only a topical is needed.
You’ll see results with just one treatment. Results that last up to a year!
Since hyaluronic acid is a natural substance, it is eventually absorbed by your body. Repeat treatments will help you maintain a smooth, attractive appearance.
There are possible side effects, including tenderness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are generally mild and temporary. We’ll discuss your individual risks at consultation.
Patient satisfaction rate with Juvederm is high. Most say that the experience was not uncomfortable, and that they love the results. You, too, can look younger and more rested with professional Juvederm treatments.
