Because of their effectiveness and safety, dermal fillers are becoming a popular way to smooth wrinkles. In most cases, they’re temporary because they’re gradually absorbed by the patient’s body, but some last longer than others. Juvederm is one of the most effective fillers on the market, and patients can learn more about it below.
Which Facial Areas Does Juvederm Treat?
Juvederm is a gel consisting of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body. Because it’s sterile and natural, most people don’t react to it. This FDA-approved wrinkle filler works to:
- Smooth lines from the nose to the lips
- Eliminate lines from the chin to the nose
- Reduce upper lip and frown lines
- Add definition and volume to thin lips
- Restore volume to the cheeks
- Smooth forehead lines, marionette lines, and wrinkles
A local surgeon can provide more guidance on the reasons to use Juvederm. Visit the site or call for more details.
What are Juvederm’s Benefits?
There’s no surgery involved with dermal fillers, just a small injection. Juvederm has numerous benefits, such as:
- Fast results. A patient will notice an improvement immediately following the procedure. While it takes a day or two for the filler to become settled, the skin plumps and lines diminish right away.
- FDA approval. Juvederm is composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural, non-invasive, and non-toxic substance that doesn’t require allergy testing.
Dermal fillers do their job efficiently, and Juvederm is excellent at smoothing lines and augmenting lips. However, it can be used on multiple body parts.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Numerous factors determine how long Juvederm’s results last. The injection site, the doctor’s technique, and the patient’s skin type all play a role. For the average patient, results may last for six months; some Juvederm variants last longer. Consult a certified cosmetic surgeon to determine which type is best for a patient’s needs and preferences.
