Qualified dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons use trademarked Juvederm to treat wrinkles and creases. The material is injected in the face and sometimes the hands to add volume and smoothness. The use of injectable dermal fillers is sometimes called a liquid facelift.
Facts About Juvederm Treatments in NYC
This non-invasive, non-surgical treatment helps to give a more youthful appearance and is administered during an office visit. Juvederm is approved for correcting loss of volume in the cheeks and for treating wrinkles. It’s particularly effective at counteracting creases and folds near the mouth and nose. It’s such a valuable treatment for moderate to severe wrinkles that Allure beauty magazine recognized it with its 2014 Breakthrough Award.
Juvederm as a preferred cosmetic treatment by certified dermatologists
Dermatologists administer Juvederm during an office treatment. Touch-up treatments are generally necessary to maintain the results. The repeat injections contain about half as much of the product as the first treatment. This filler has lidocaine in it to minimize any discomfort from the injection. Repeat injections of Juvederm may even promote your body’s own collagen production, so that over time the results last longer.
Important Facts About Juvederm: Safety Information and Recovery
Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, which is associated with a low incidence of side effects. Any side effects are generally mild or moderate and short-term. Tenderness, swelling or other discomfort usually resolves within a few days. Avoiding strenuous exercise and extensive sun or heat exposure for 24 hours following treatment is advised by the manufacturer.
Recovery time tends to be brief, although it varies from person to person. The condition of the skin, the area treated, the amount injected and age can affect recovery time. Most patients have a reduction in any swelling or bruising within five days of the treatment. In some cases these effects may continue for up to two weeks and in rare cases for up to a month. Most people are able to return to work and their regular activities right after treatment, unless they are bothered by the effect of any swelling on their appearance.
