Juvéderm is a dermal filler that focuses on the mid-lower face. It adds volume to the cheeks and the lips and makes patients look much younger. It also smoothens the crease lines that appear between the eyebrows that can make people look older than they actually are.
The main component of the Juvéderm formula is Hyaluronic acid or HA. This HA compound is present naturally in the skin and is responsible for delivering nutrients to the skin and retain its moisture and softness. As patients get older, their face loses this compound. The solution is to inject that same compound in the problematic areas of the face to give it an instant natural and younger look. Results are very natural looking, making Juvederm treatments very popular.
What is Special About Juvederm?
A very common concern held by patients is pain. To deal with it, Juvéderm comes equipped with the aesthetic compound Lidocaine, which decreases the discomfort and pain following the treatment procedure. By including Lidocaine, all patients will feel is an initial prick and minimal pain afterward.
Also, the procedure time is about thirty to forty minutes depending on the exact treatment being used. Because the procedure time is relatively brief, the patient does not have to take a day off as it can easily be administered during a work break or even on the weekend.
The side effects are also minimal and do not persist longer than 2 to 3 days. The common side effect includes slight discomfort, swelling, or redness around the injection site. Juvederm can also be used on different facial sites such as lips, cheeks, chin etc. Also, it is suitable for all skin types and colors.
