Juvederm Injections to Reduce Facial Aging

Fine lines and wrinkles on the face are the first visible signs of aging and can cause distress to many, often leading to a decrease in self-esteem and confidence. Before the effects of aging on our skin get out of hand, it is best to try and remedy them by eating healthy and exercising regularly. However, our skin’s loss of elasticity and decrease in natural production of collagen cannot be held off for long before the inevitable happens. In order to rejuvenate our facial appearance, many of us get dermal filler treatment.

Fillers are a safe and convenient solution. Juvederm is a popular dermal filler that can be used for treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines, scar correction, contouring, and lip enhancement.

What Is Juvederm and How Does It Work?

Juvederm is a filler made of hyaluronic acid, which enhances the elasticity of the skin and adds volume to it, giving you more youthful-looking skin. Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in our body, so you do not have to undergo any kind of allergy testing method, since the substance is non-allergenic. It is highly biocompatible and made through biosynthesis.

Aging leads to decreased levels of moisture and nutrients being delivered to the skin. This is corrected by the hyaluronic acid, which acts as a delivery system, keeping the skin healthy and well-nourished.

The Juvederm Procedure and Results

Before an appointment for a Juvederm treatment, patients are advised to stop taking any sort of anti-inflammatory medicine or blood-thinning medication like aspirin for at least a few days before the procedure.

When you come in for the treatment, the surgeon will typically first apply some topical anesthetic on the area that is to be treated. The Juvederm gel is then injected into the mid to deep dermal layers of the skin, depending on how much correction is required in that area. There may be some discomfort during the injection, but Juvederm’s smooth gel consistency makes it easier to be injected than other types of dermal fillers.

After the procedure, you should avoid rigorous exercise, intense heat and sunlight, and alcohol consumption for at least a day. There may be slight swelling and discomfort in the treatment, but that is normal and should subside within a few hours.

The results of Juvederm injections are immediately visible and should last for a number of months. Since it provides temporary effects, repeat procedures will be required after the initial treatment, albeit with smaller quantities of the gel.
