Consider Juvederm when Treating Facial Folds and Wrinkles

Published on September 12, 2012

Every woman hates it when they start to look old. Wrinkles, folds around the face, and duller looking skin are all a part of aging. Women will try out almost any over the counter product that advertises the possibility of young looking skin, but generally women are left feeling disappointed. Over the counter products do not work to bring back a youthful glow, and more rigorous approaches are necessary. Many women will consider plastic surgery, but that’s a costly and intensive avenue to take. As such, many women prefer a less drastic way to look younger, and turn to Juvederm treatments.

How does Juvederm treat facial folds and wrinkles

Women all around New York City are talking about Juvederm and the Juvederm treatments they have received. Juvederm can be used by almost any woman who is worried about wrinkles and deep folds in the face. Juvederm is a facial filler that works to smooth out the skin and lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Wrinkles and uneven facial areas can be almost completely smoothed with Juvederm treatments. Effects from treatments can be seen right after injections are completed.

The effects from Juvederm can be seen for six months or more and this is much longer than many other fillers and wrinkle treatments.

What to expect from a Juvederm facial filler treatment

A Manhattan dermatologist can perform Juvederm treatments right in their office. Small syringes are used to inject the filler into areas around the face where wrinkles and folds are visible. Several syringes of Juvederm are used by a Manhattan dermatologist during appointments and patients can suggest that more injections be used if they wish to look more youthful.

Minimal discomfort is felt during treatments and slight bruising may be seen at injection sites. Bruising will go away a few days after Juvederm treatments. If patients are concerned about feeling pain from injections, numbing agents can be used around the face where injections will be placed. A Manhattan dermatologist will offer numbing injections to patients before wrinkle treatments begin.
