Many women seek to enhance their looks through procedures like BOTOX® and most recently, Juvederm treatment. Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure to improve your looks or skin condition, it is essential to understand what it entails. Juvederm is an injection treatment that serves to make the facial features look fuller than before, and the expectations may vary from the results. Before settling for this treatment, there are some things to remember.
Works on wrinkles
In addition to giving you fuller lips, the treatment has also been used for a long time to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Patients also use Juvederm for lifting cheeks, treating acne scars, lifting sagging skin, changing the shape of certain facial contours, and for other uses.
How does it work?
The hyaluronic acid that the product is composed of naturally occurs in the body. It works by acting as a cushioning agent that holds water in the treatment area. In so doing, it builds some temporary volume in the injection sites and makes the skin acquire a smoother look.
How long do the results last?
The treatment is a temporary option and a patient will need reinjections at our office as necessary. Typically, the procedure should be done every nine to twelve months after the initial treatment. In repeat injections, smaller amounts of Juvederm may be used; however, it all depends on the unique case.
How safe is it?
The main ingredient of Juvederm, hyaluronic acid, is widely considered as a safe product for use and is FDA-approved for its proven record of safety. However, to ensure that the injection is done and managed in the right way, always have a professional provider administer the treatment.
