Smooth Your Facial Lines and Wrinkles With JuvedermPublished on October 9, 2014 by Westchester Center For Dermatology
What is Juverderm?
Juvederm is an injectable gel that is known to help “defy lines” and “defy gravity.” Unlike Botox, your dermatologist injects the facial filler into your skin, rather than beneath the skin and into your muscles; this creates natural-looking results using non-surgical means.
The remarkable benefits of Juvederm
Juvederm is clinically proven to smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles that appear around the mouth and nose by replacing the hyaluronic acid (HA) that you start to lose through aging. As we age, the HA decrease causes skin to lose structure and volume, which in turn causes both dynamic and static wrinkles.
It is recommended that those with severe allergies or allergic reactions should not use this product. Your doctor or dermatologist will help you determine if Juvederm treatment is right for you, as long as you are an adult over the age of 21. After your very first and initial treatment, you may receive the results you wanted. Some patients require up to two touch-ups to achieve their optimal correction. You and your skincare specialist can discuss what to expect, and you can plan your appointments accordingly.

During the treatment, there is a fine needle used to fill treatment areas. This may cause discomfort during and after the procedure. Juvederm does use lidocaine in its solution to make the experience more comfortable, but your doctor may choose to numb areas of particular discomfort. The process is fairly brief depending on the work that needs to be done, and touch-ups/repeats are even faster because the doctor will only use about half of the gel.
The Juvederm correction is only temporary, but with optimal treatment, the results can last up to one year. Most of the side effects, like tenderness or swelling, are mild to moderate and have a short duration of about 7 days or less. Juvederm is an FDA approved product that causes no risk of infection. Juvederm also prides itself on being studied and tested for all skin types, so different skin tones and colors can all appreciate the skin-smoothing results of the Juvederm filler treatment.
