Juvederm is known as a dermal filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid, which is also a natural part of the human body. Hyaluronic acid helps give the skin volume, but its natural levels start to decline over time. As the hyaluronic acid levels go down, the face will often start to show fold and wrinkles. Juvederm can be precisely injected to restore that lost hyaluronic acid, bringing the skin back to its previous appearance. In addition to restoring appearance, Juvederm also appears to prompt the body to produce new collagen and elastin. This, in turn, can help restore skin appearance and overall elasticity as well.
Juvederm can be used in several different areas of the face. One of the most common applications for Juvederm is the nasolabial folds, the folds in the area between the nose and the outer lips. These folds can be filled in to give the face a much more youthful appearance again. Patients who are looking for plumper lips may also find Juvederm to be an excellent solution.
Juvederm treatment only takes around 15 minutes per session. The doctor will begin by numbing the treatment area with a topical anesthetic. The Juvederm treatment is then administered via an ultra-fine needle.
Juvederm results will be evident immediately. There may be some minor swelling, bruising or redness for up to a week around the injection site, but these side effects are minor and typically resolve rapidly.
Juvederm correction generally lasts for one year. Patients seeking a longer-term correction may be interested in alternative fillers offered at Wellington Anti-Aging Centre. For example, Voluma is a filler similar to Juvederm that lasts 18 months to 2 years.
Juvederm comes in pre-filled syringes and is priced by the syringe. Patients may achieve the desired correction with anywhere from one to three syringes.
