You may be candidate for Juvéderm® if you have wrinkles on your face or around your lips that you wish to diminish. Juvéderm®, a dermal filler, is approved by the FDA for volumizing and correcting deep folds and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds (the lines between the nose and the corners of your mouth). Juvéderm® produces smooth and natural results that contain the highest concentration of non-animal and cross-linked hyaluronic acid that can last up to 6 months or longer. It can fill in and reduce the depth of the nasolabial fold or depressed acne scars.
Juvéderm® can be done in the office by appointment. A topical anesthetic or an injection of numbing medicine may be used, if desired, to minimize discomfort. Its hyaluronic acid with gel particle suspension formulation creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating volume.
How Does Juvéderm® Work?
As you age, your skin loses some of its hyaluronic acid, a process that is sped up if you’ve spent a lot of time in the sun. The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm® helps keep your skin hydrated, thus restoring and maintaining its volume. Hyaluronic acid also appears to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that contribute to the skin’s fullness and elasticity.
Juvéderm manufacturer (Allergan) uses a chemical “cross-linking” process that binds the individual chains of hyaluronic acid into a long-lasting gel with a very smooth consistency. Because of the gel’s smoothness, your face also looks and feels smooth and natural.
What Is The Treatment Like?
Most treatment sessions take only about 45 minutes. You can have the procedure done over your lunch hour and go right back to work or to your other afternoon activities. With a very fine needle, the gel is injected into the mid to deep dermis layer of skin. Although any discomfort from the injections is minimal, you may choose to have the treatment area anesthetized beforehand.
