Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler for managing facial wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose. The filler is injected into the skin to achieve natural-looking results. Juvederm procedures are relatively painless, taking about 15 to 60 minutes to complete on average. Here is some more information on this treatment.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a non-surgical cosmetic filler that smooths out wrinkles and adds volume to the lips. It is a gel-like substance injected into the skin using a needle. Juvederm works in different areas of the face and body, but it’s best known for treating frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It has hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin and helps keep it hydrated. However, as we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, which results in wrinkles and sagging skin. Juvederm replaces lost hyaluronic acid and helps restore volume to the skin.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm is an injectable product that can plump up and smooth out wrinkles, folds, and creases on the face. These products “freshen up” your look by adding volume to areas where you want more fullness or definition, such as the cheeks or lips. When injected into the skin, collagen production increases, ensuring the area remains smooth and stable over time. Juvederm is injected into your deep facial tissues (the dermis) or near the surface of your skin to help firm up and restore areas that have lost volume with age or sun exposure.
How Long Do Juvederm Injections Last?
The effects of Juvederm last about one year before it starts to dissolve within your body. So the results depend on how much product you use and where you use it on your face.
Juvederm is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved injectable filler for use in areas such as lips, cheeks, chin, forehead, and eyelids. You may experience mild discomfort once the anesthesia wears off, but it shouldn’t last long. It is safe for cosmetic procedures because of its natural ingredients. The Juvederm process applies to all facial parts but generally works best for filling deep lines around the mouth or nasolabial folds (the crease between your nose and mouth.
