The Juvederm products contain hyaluronic acid (HA). This natural substance that your body produces a lot of in your youth provides your skin with nutrients while helping the treated area retain moisture and suppleness. As you get older, your production of hyaluronic acid reduces -- leaving you with visible wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, and hollow contours. Juvederm provides hyaluronic acid in a gel form for application to areas of your face that need rejuvenation, plumping, and wrinkle reduction.
Juvederm works to lift and smooth your cheeks or the areas around your mouth. You can also use Juvederm to plump your lips. Juvederm may also address parentheses lines and smile lines, as well as crow’s feet and forehead lines.
Most formularies of Juvederm are made with lidocaine. This numbing agent minimizes any pain and discomfort you may feel. But you might have some initial stinging from the needle. If you’re worried about the slight stinging, Mena or a member of the team can apply a topical cream to numb the area ahead of time. You can also apply ice to the treatment area to further numb your skin. This can also minimize your chances of feeling anything during your treatment.
Juvederm gives you instant results -- you’ll see an improvement as soon as you look in the mirror. Give yourself 1-2 days to heal from the injections to allow any swelling to go down. Once the swelling subsides, your new plumper-looking skin is revealed. Most patients experience the benefits of fillers for 6 to 18 months. After the effects gradually disappear, you can receive additional treatments in the same areas.
