As we age, our skin slowly starts to lose its elasticity. This process is inevitable, but there are ways to help slow it down. One such way is through the use of dermal fillers, such as Juvederm.
Say Goodbye to Static Wrinkles
As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid gradually decreases. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring gel-like substance that binds up to 1,000x its weight in water and makes your skin look suppler, hydrated, and voluminous. The gradual loss of HA leads to static wrinkles that stay etched on your face even when you’re not making expressions. Juvéderm can replenish your HA reserves to fill out fine lines and wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a cosmetic injectable that can restore lost facial volume and smooth away wrinkles. It’s made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that makes your skin look hydrated and plump. When injected into the skin, Juvéderm allows your skin to retain moisture, leading to a soft and supple appearance. Juvéderm fillers can fill out fine lines, wrinkles, and nasolabial folds, restore lost facial volume in the cheeks and elevate your natural facial contours. Juvéderm can also enhance your jawline, chin, and lips.
Recovery After Juvéderm
Juvéderm treatments involve minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the injection sites. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after your Juvéderm treatment, but strenuous workouts and direct sunlight should be avoided for at least 24 hours.
The Results of Juvéderm
Juvéderm fillers produce instant results — your facial skin will look smoother and fuller after the treatment. But the final results appear after a few days once the side effects dissipate. The results usually last 6 to 18 months, depending on the treatment area, dosage, and how quickly your body metabolizes the filler material.
