Juvederm is an anti-aging procedure that’s beneficial for both men and women who wish to have a younger and more vital appearance. Juvederm is a dermal filler that reduces wrinkles and trenches. It’s especially effective on those wrinkles that show up around the mouth and the nose. Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid. This is a substance the body produces naturally and has long been shown to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which plump out those areas of the skin where wrinkles are found and smoothes them away. Moreover, hyaluronic acid retards the breakdown of collagen that’s already in the skin. Hyaluronic acid also helps the skin retain moisture, as the moisture loss that comes with aging is another cause of wrinkles.
What Are the Benefits of Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA approved procedure. Some of its benefits are:
•It’s noninvasive, as it’s injected through fine needles.
•It has little down time.
•It acts quickly to reduce wrinkles.
•It plumps up the skin and adds volume to it.
•It’s long lasting. The effects of Juvederm may last as long as five months.
•It’s cross linked, which means it lasts much longer than natural hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is usually a liquid, but in Juvederm it’s a longer lasting gel.
The dermatologists at Infinite Health and Rejuvenation are expert at Juvederm and have many years of experience performing the procedure. A patient who wants Juvederm will first have a consultation with a dermatologist. The patient will let the dermatologist know what they want out of the procedure and the dermatologist will let them know what’s possible. If the person is a candidate, the dermatologist will examine those parts of the face that can be helped with Juvederm.
Before the surgery the dermatologist will map out points in the face to be treated. They’ll then clean these areas and apply a topical medicine that will numb the injection sites. Then, the hyaluronic acid will be injected into the sites. Normally the entire Juvederm procedure won’t take longer than a half an hour. Sometimes, if the wrinkles are very deep, Juvederm may have to be injected more than once and the injections might need to go deeper. Patients might have to return for further treatments if they have trenches such as marionette lines around the mouth. The marks where the dermatologist pinpointed the injection sites will then be washed off and the patient will be given an ice pack to reduce the swelling and discomfort.
After this there’s almost no recovery time after Juvederm, except the patient should treat the injection sites gently and not rub or irritate them. Whatever discomfort the patient has should end after a few days.
A patient who’s considering Juvederm should know that, as it’s considered an elective procedure, their insurance might not cover it. They might wish to make their own payment arrangements with the doctor or seek other sources of financial aid.
