Juvederm is one of the latest techniques in non-surgical face lift and wrinkle removing techniques. Juvederm is an injectable filler somewhat done in the same procedure as Botox. However unlike Botox, Juvederm is comprised of a natural substance already found in the body called hyaluronic acid. The reason Juvederm works so well is that hyaluronic acid can actually absorb up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Injecting the small amounts of the natural filler in the trouble areas caused hyaluronic acid to absorb water, therefore filling the area of deep lines, smile lines, and wrinkles. Juvederm’s main mechanism of action is giving volume to the troubled or sagging areas of the skin.

You may have a lot of questions about Juvederm and what it is, if it is safe, how many treatments you may need, how long the procedure lasts, and what the recovery time is needed after applications. Juvederm products are made of natural hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and can be used to provide up to one year of facial correction of wrinkles and smile lines of the face. As you get older, your skin starts to lose fullness or volume. The result is sagging skin which create deep lines and wrinkles. Juvederm is injected into the areas where volume is lost and the hyaluronic acid absorbs water and creates volume which eliminates wrinkles and deep lines caused from aging and sagging of the skin.
Treatments will totally depend on the severity of the troubles areas, however the results are instant and most patients only need one treatment. Some Juvederm products contain a local anesthetic ‘lidocaine’ for a more comfortable treatment. The procedure is not painful and after the first two or three small injections, the lidocaine numbs the area being treated. A single procedure can take anywhere from 30-45 minutes and you are able to return to your normal activities shorty after. Small ice packs are placed on the injected areas to prevent bruising and swelling and for comfort until the hyaluronic acid settles under the skin. As with any type of injection or surgical procedure there can be some side effects. It is important to have a consultation and skin test to see if the treatment will be right for you.
