Everything You Need to Know About Juvederm
As you grow older, your facial tissues lose their volume and elasticity. These changes can be accelerated by dramatic weight changes, sun damage, and illness. As the facial skin becomes lax, facial lines and deep creases occur. The fatty deposits along the cheek and under the eyes diminish, producing a hollow appearance in the face.
Juvederm is a dermal filler created to treat facial creases and wrinkles that occur with age. The Juvederm injectable gel is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that gives form and structure to your body tissues. Juvederm can smoothen lines and make the tissues around the mouth and eyes plumper. As this dermal filler combines with your existing collagen stores, its benefits can last for months.
Juvederm can treat:
• Loss of volume in the jawline
• Nasolabial folds (between the mouth and nose)
• Marionette Lines (at the corners of the mouth)
When employed on its own, Juvederm can bring rejuvenation to your face. However, if combined with other cosmetic treatments such as a chemical peel or laser resurfacing, it can give you a more youthful appearance.
Juvederm is suitable for women and men interested in non-surgical treatments to correct moderate-to-severe thinning lips and facial folds or lines. The procedure is approved based on your medical history, treatment goals, overall health, and expectations. A few contraindications for Juvederm exist, and they include a history of anaphylaxis, severe allergies, and allergies to lidocaine and gram-positive bacterial proteins. If you’ve ever had a problem with any of these conditions, ask your doctor about your facial rejuvenation alternatives and options.
Preparing for Juvederm Treatment
You are advised to stop taking aspirin or any other anti-inflammatory medications three days before a Juvederm treatment. And If you wear makeup, you should not do so during your Juvederm appointment. However, you can continue your makeup and skincare routine after treatment is complete.
The Juvederm Treatment Procedure
You can receive a Juvederm treatment quickly on an outpatient basis in your doctor’s office. This treatment does not require any special preparations. On your treatment day, your doctor will place you in a comfortable procedure room and cleanse the treatment areas as you wait for treatment.
Your doctor will then measure a specific amount of injectable filler that suffices to give you the level of rejuvenation you desire. He or she will then give you quick, pain-free injections, and you will have completed your Juvederm treatment. After this, you can leave your doctor’s office to return to your daily duties. Also, there are no special aftercare instructions.
After your Juvederm filler injection, you don’t have to wait for long periods for the results to appear. This unique treatment gives you positive effects on the same day of the procedure. But, the only thing you will experience is temporary swelling and bruising, which will then subside shortly after a few days. When the temporary side effects are over, you will enjoy a new, younger, and long-lasting look.
Your doctor will advise you to avoid massaging or touching the treated area for a few days. You will also need to avoid unnecessary exposure to the sun, heat, and cold for up to two weeks after your treatment.
The average patient will enjoy the results of a Juvederm treatment for seven to nine months, but some have maintained the results for up to one year.
Juvederm is an excellent treatment for wrinkles and creases, and its results are immediate. It has minimal risks, and the substance contained in the filler is naturally produced in the human body. Therefore, it does not induce any allergy.
