As you age, wrinkles in the skin are unavoidable. However, you don’t have to let these wrinkles become a permanent feature. Plenty of treatment options are available for men and women who want to eliminate wrinkles and other signs of aging. One such option is Juvederm.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable filler that can reduce the severity of wrinkles and folds in the face and restore a more youthful appearance. This type of treatment does not require surgery and can be performed safely right in your doctor’s office.
How Does it Work?
During a Juvederm treatment, a gel filler is injected under the in the area to be treated. This gel adds volume to the tissue beneath the epidermis, filling in the wrinkles and causing the skin to appear fuller, healthier and smoother.
The needle used in Juvederm injections is very thin, and scarring and bruising is minimal. While other gel fillers are granular and may produce uneven results, the gel used in Juvederm treatments is smooth and can be distributed evenly under the skin.
