What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm® is a type of dermal filler administered via strategic injections into facial tissue. The smooth consistency gel contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body that retains water and hydrates cells.
Age, exposure to sunlight, and other factors can stall the amount of hyaluronic acid in skin, leading to wrinkles, folds, and other unwelcome marks. Juvederm® restores moisture and volume to facial tissues, smoothing the skin and giving your face a more youthful appearance.
Is Juvederm® Right for Me?
By rejuvenating skin and underlying tissues in the face, Juvederm® is a potential solution for patients who want to improve their appearance but aren’t prepared to undergo facial plastic surgery.
Generally, candidates for treatment with Juvederm® are:
- In good physical health
- Knowledgeable of the filler’s capabilities
- Realistic in their expectations for results
During your initial meeting, Dr. Angelchik can answer your questions about Juvederm and determine whether or not the treatment is right for you.
Benefits of Juvederm®
The results of Juvederm® will depend on which formulation you and Dr. Angelchik determine best meets your cosmetic goals. Some treatments with this product are ideal for correcting superficial lines while others are designed to penetrate deeper beneath the skin.
Juvederm® is an effective facial rejuvenation treatment for unbecoming features such as:
- Sagging or wrinkles in the cheeks
- Lines running from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth (smile lines)
- Creases beneath the corners of the mouth (sometimes called “marionette lines”)
- Vertical lines or lack of definition along the lips
The rejuvenating results of Juvederm® can last for nine to twelve months. The newest formulation, called Juvederm Voluma™ XC, can be effective for even longer, with optimal treatment adding a subtle contour to your cheek that can last up to two years.
