Do you have crow’s feet, smile lines, or facial creases you wish would go away? Juvéderm can help with that. Juvéderm is an effective and safe non-surgical treatment that can add volume and smooth out wrinkles on your face. While Botox works to pinpoint the cause of fine lines, Juvéderm works to restore volume and correct wrinkles. In contrast to other hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvéderm is a smooth consistency gel and results are nearly immediate. The following will address how Juvéderm works and the benefits to you.
How Juvéderm Works
Juvéderm is a U.S. FDA approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler and has been in use within the medical industry for two decades. Juvéderm is used to address and correct moderate to severe facial lines and folds including “parentheses” lines, otherwise known as smile lines. It can also be administered in the lips to naturally increase volume and create a fuller and younger look. Depending on the patient and the type of Juvéderm treatment you have, like Juvéderm Ultra or Juvéderm Ultra plus, your results can last about one year. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, Juvéderm does not require allergy testing. It is safe for men and women as well as persons of color.
Your Juvéderm Procedure
First, you will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Potozkin to discuss the risks, benefits, and your personal expectations relating to Juvéderm injections. This is an ideal opportunity to share your goals or concerns with the doctor. When you arrive for your Juvéderm injection appointment, an anesthetic may be administered, after which the Juvéderm treatment will begin. The procedure generally takes around 30 minutes to complete. While some patients are able to return to work or their regular activities immediately, we recommend that you rest for the day.
