As we age, so does our skin. Over time, the once natural voluminous look of youthful skin begins to subside and fine lines, wrinkles, and folds form. Fortunately, today, you don’t have to let that happen without putting up a fight!
Juvederm® is no different. As a dermal filler, it is injected through the skin directly into the fine lines and wrinkles in order to fill in those creases. It is used by cosmetic doctors and vein specialists to soften fine lines, wrinkles, and deep folds. It is most often used to lessen the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the nasolabial folds, which most people know as parenthesis lines, laugh lines, or smile lines. It is also used for sculpting, plumping, and enhancing the lips.
While there are many benefits to getting Juvederm at your New Jersey cosmetic surgery center, here are four of the most amazing:
1) It is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler to increase volume in both the cheeks and mid-face region. Because its active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, it is able to essentially stretch skin cells. In the process, new collagen is formed, which then aids in reducing fine line and wrinkles. The result is a fuller, younger, and vibrant looking appearance.
2) Comprised of natural ingredients. The main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is found normally in the tendons, muscles, and skin mammals.
3) Results are fast and long lasting. For most people, results are seen the very same day as the procedure. There may be some minor bruising or swelling, which resolves itself within a week. Final results may take three to five days as water absorbs into the area treated.
Typically, results of this dermal filler remain for a period of six to nine months, though some patients find that their results last even longer when they have a quick follow-up treatment a few weeks subsequent to their initial injection. This is one of the reasons why it is one of the most commonly requested aesthetics treatments.
4) Minimally recovery. Because it is a non-surgical wrinkle treatment, there is no need for downtime. Patients can have their injections done on their lunch hour or before or after work. Most patients need only one treatment per site. Side effects, such as redness, swelling, and bruising, are mild and temporary, and generally affect the injection site solely.
