What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® is one of the most popular hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers available on the market today. It can provide between 6-12 months of moderate to severe wrinkle correction for:
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Forehead wrinkles
Because the results of this treatment last for so long, patients have to go in for fewer follow-up appointments to maintain rejuvenated, younger-looking skin. Since it was FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2006, JUVEDERM® has been providing patients around the country and the world with excellent, long-term skin rejuvenation results.
How it Works
JUVEDERM® is comprised primarily of hyaluronic acid, a compound that is naturally occurring within the body. Once injected into the site of wrinkles and fine lines, this substance attracts water molecules to the area, infusing it with extra volume and definition. Over time, it encourages the body to create more of its collagen, a structural protein that can make the skin smoother, tighter, and tauter.
When compared to many other dermal fillers available today, JUVEDERM® has a distinctly smooth and natural-looking consistency. This is because it is formulated using hylacross technology that is particular to the JUVEDERM® line of injectable fillers.
What to Expect from Treatment
When compared to other aesthetic treatments, the JUVEDERM® injection process is significantly more comfortable and easy to undergo. This is because it is formulated with a mild anesthetic that helps soothe the pain of injection. Each session takes about 20 minutes to complete and involves little to no downtime. While side effects like redness, pain, swelling, bruising, itching, and skin discoloration are possible, these usually subside within a few short days of receiving treatment.
