Juvederm is a type of dermal filler that is made up of hyaluronic acid. It is one of the most popular dermal fillers. There are a variety of ways that Juvederm can be used. Below is a list of the three most common uses of Juvederm.
1 – Reduce Parentheses Lines
The skin has a tendency to lose moisture and elasticity with age. That is why fine parentheses can develop around the mouth and nose. Juvederm can add volume to the face, which can reduce the appearance of parentheses lines. The results will typically last 9-12 months and patients typically need less Juvederm when they are treated again.
2 – Lift And Contour Cheeks
Fine lines and wrinkles are not the only changes that you may notice as you get older. The cheeks have a tendency to flatten and lose volume, too. Juvederm can restore volume as well as lift and contour the face. This can restore one’s youthful appearance. In fact, some people who use Juvederm have reported looking five years younger. The results can last up to two years in the cheeks.
3 – Plump Lips
If you’ve noticed that your lips have been getting thinner, then you may want to consider Juvederm for fuller lips. The results can last up to one year. Studies have shown that 78 percent of people were satisfied with the look and feel of their lips after one year.
Key Things To Know About Juvederm
Juvederm is a very safe treatment because hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body. Most healthy people are considered good candidates for Juvederm. This procedure can typically be completed within 15 to 30 minutes, but the time can vary. You can return to your normal activities after you get Juvederm. However, there are a few things that you will need to avoid for 24 hours, such as strenuous exercise, sun exposure and alcohol consumption.
It is normal to experience some pain, tenderness, bruising and redness in the treated area. However, these symptoms will typically go away within seven days or less. Swelling can be reduced by applying ice to the area.
