In the last decade, dermal fillers have become a potent anti-aging treatment, and Juvederm is one of the most popular choices available. Dermal fillers are used to restore lost facial volume, which occurs due to the natural decline of structural components such as elastin and collagen. They are able to fill out wrinkles, lines, and folds, and make the face appear fuller, as well as plumper.
Juvederm is an FDA approved dermal filler that is derived from hyaluronic acid. It is considered a safe injectable, because hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs in the body, and aids in volumization and hydration. Juvederm is used to fill in deep lines, such as those at the corner of the mouth, as well as frown lines, laugh lines, and nasal furrows.
Juvederm is a smooth gel that is injected into the skin using a tiny needle. The procedure is relatively painless, and takes only about 15 minutes to complete. The area can be numbed with a local anesthetic beforehand, in order to ensure that it is pain free.
After treatment there might be slight puffiness and a little bruising, but this will not prevent you from resuming your regular activities. The results will look smooth and natural, and last for 6-12 months.
