Juvederm is an injectable gel that is used to create a more youthful and smooth appearance. It can temporarily treat and diminish the appearance of moderate to severe facial creases and lines. If you want to look and feel younger this New Year, Juvederm can help.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a gel made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that aids in enhancing volume and hydration. Unfortunately, the aging process diminishes the volume of our skin, resulting in the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is a non surgical out patient treatment that you can get on your lunch break. Treatments take about 30 minutes, depending on how many areas on your face you want treated.
What happens during a Juvederm procedure?
After your initial consultation, you will arrive for your appointment and an anesthetic injection might be given. Next, Juvederm injections are made in the specified areas. Many patients go back to their regular activities immediately, but Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center recommends that you rest for the remainder of the day. With Juvederm injections, you will see a noticeable improvement in your facial wrinkles immediately after the procedure. It is normal to experience redness and swelling after your treatment.
How safe is Juvederm?
Juvederm doesn’t require allergy testing because it does not contain animal proteins. It is a U.S. FDA approved and naturally occurring substance in your body. For over two decades, Juvederm has been an injection to help enhance movement in arthritic joints and assist in eye surgeries.
How long will Juvederm injections last?
The results of Juvederm injections can last about 6-9 months. In some cases, they may last up to one year.
