The Benefits of a Juvederm ProcedurePublished on August 22, 2011 by Westchester Center For Dermatology
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that effectively treats fine lines, wrinkles and facial folds that are moderate to severe. The procedure, offered by Manhattan Dermatology & Laser Center, is FDA approved and dramatically improves the elasticity of the skin while smoothing wrinkles and facial folds.
How does Juvederm work to improve your appearance?
Since Juvederm is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar, it binds and attracts to water molecules and provides a plumping and smoothing effect to the skin. Skin looks dramatically younger as wrinkles and skin folds are reduced and the lip area appears fuller and lifted.
Who is the Juvederm treatment suitable for?
Since Juvederm can provide a lifted and smoother look to the face, it is an ideal procedure for anyone who is looking to correct smile and facial lines, deep folds, shape facial contours and enhance and increase the volume of their lips. Juvederm is injected into the mid to deep dermis, as it eliminates wrinkles and facial folds.
While Juvederm is directly injected into the skin through a fine needle, it is possible for mild discomfort to occur during and after the procedure. At Manhattan Dermatology & Laser Center in NYC, the whole procedure takes about 15 minutes and since it is composed of natural ingredients, it is safe for all skin types and persons of color. You may go back to work or resume your normal activities as soon as your treatment is completed.
