There is no way around it. As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. To combat this specific type of skin aging, the dermatology world has relied on new techniques to help patients stop the hands of time. Juvederm does just that.
Juvederm, or "filler", is the fastest growing non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. Juvederm consists of a very smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin - that helps to add volume and hydration.
As we discussed in last week's blog, BOTOX Cosmetic is not a filler. BOTOX Cosmetic relaxes muscle activity and is used to treat moderate to severe lines caused by the dominant frown muscles between the eyebrows.
With Juvederm, I am able to ease the product under the skin and instantly restore your skin's volume, while smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds - the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvederm provides a smooth, natural look and feel, so everyone will notice how great you look (but no one will know)! Juvederm is a convenient procedure and results are almost instantaneous.
The injection process takes about 15 minutes and normally, patients return to work, school or their usual routine, right after the procedure. Our office will provide cold compresses to help reduce swelling or bruising and make-up may be worn immediately after treatment.
Juvederm is FDA-approved for use in the United States and is the ONLY hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that will provide you with beautiful results lasting for up to 1 year. Call our office to learn more about Juvederm so you can start seeing results today! Olivia, After:
