What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an injectable filler which can improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, folds, lines, acne scars, enhance the lips, and contour facial features like the chin and cheeks. Over time, your skin loses elasticity and moisture, which contributes to moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. While serums and creams can help moisturize the skin’s surface, Juvederm adds volume to smooth these lines and folds, to help give you the natural-looking, long-lasting results you want. Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume.
What are the most common uses of Juvederm?
The three main spots that are most commonly treated with Juvederm injections are smile lines, marionette lines and vertical lines. Smile lines, or nasolabial folds, are the lines that run from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These are most pronounced when smiling, hence the name. Marionette lines often form outside the corners of the mouth and can often give a frowning or sagging effect. Vertical lines are the wrinkles that appear in a vertical formation around the mouth. These often result from regular lip muscle movement, but are worsened by smoking, sunlight and stress.
How long does Juvederm last?
Expect your results to last anywhere from six months to one year. Patients treated again after 1 year, typically need less product to achieve their results.
Will I feel any discomfort? What is the down time?
Health & Beauty Boutique administers the treatment during a brief office visit. The Juvederm injections contain lidocaine which virtually eliminates any discomfort during and after injection. Patients may rarely still have minor bruising, swelling or discoloration post-injection, but expect these side effects to last no more than 24 hours.
