You may feel self-conscious about the way you look. Makeup can only do so much, and even good wrinkle fighting makeup tends to wear off throughout the day. If you are looking for a more permanent solution for your wrinkles, read on to learn about the benefits of Juvederm, and injectable filler commonly used to treat facial wrinkles.
Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that your body produces naturally. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm is the very same substance is that what your body naturally makes. This means that negative reactions to Juvederm are largely unheard of. Your body will tolerate the injection well. Hyaluronic acid does not irritate the muscle like botulinum toxin injections would, but rather it adds volume to your skin, helping it to look more youthful and supple.
Juvederm can be used in multiple locations.
Chances are, you have wrinkles and more than one area of your face. Some injectable fillers and treatments can only be used in one place, such as next to the nose or to the side of your eyes. Juvederm can be used in at multiple locations, so you can make one appointment with your dermatologist and have your entire face treated for wrinkles at once. This saves you time, and also makes for a more affordable wrinkle treatment plan.
Juvederm lasts for 6 months.
Over the counter wrinkle creams sometimes yield results that only lasts a day or two. Botulinum toxin injections may only last about 3 months. Juvederm, on the other hand, yields results that last up to 6 months. Once you have had several treatments, your results my last even longer. Fewer treatment mean less time spent in the dermatologist's office, and more time living your life.
Juvederm does not cause serious pain or side effects.
You can return straight to work or home after having your Juvederm injections. Some patients have minor swelling and redness for a day or two after Juvederm. However, you don't have to worry about serious pain management or about avoiding makeup for weeks on end as you do with some wrinkle treatments like dermabrasion or laser therapy. Others may notice that your skin looks smoother and Fuller, but your results will not look fake or plastic.
