Through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, Juvederm adds volume to the facial tissue. The human body contains a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. In addition to plumping the skin (collagen), it also stimulates the production of connective tissue. In the course of aging, hyaluronic acid production and collagen production decrease. The skin on the face appears saggy and wrinkled as a result.
In most cases, your doctor, physician assistant, or nurse marks the areas to be treated with a pen during the procedure. Juvederm will then be injected into the target area by your doctor. A light massage will also be performed in order to ensure even distribution and minimize swelling. It usually takes between 15 and 60 minutes to complete the procedure, depending on the area being treated.
A small amount of lidocaine is contained in Juvederm injections. If you experience pain or discomfort during treatment, this will help minimize it and make it go away quickly.
Using hyaluronic acid as a base, Juvederm is a dermal filler that reduces wrinkles and lines. The Juvederm family includes several products. Each of these treatments aims to address the signs of aging on the face. There are different bonds and concentrations of hyaluronic acid in each Juvederm product. When injected at different depths and in different areas, the different products target specific problems. Smooth, gel-like consistency is characteristic of Juvederm fillers.
Discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations with a medical professional before undergoing a Juvederm treatment. It’s not uncommon for Juvederm procedures to be performed on the same day as the consultation because they are minimally invasive. There is very little preparation needed before the procedure and it is minimally invasive.
The process of injecting this dermal filler is incredibly simple. In order to ensure we understand your cosmetic goals, we will make a few marks on the face that we will use as guidelines during your treatment. Additionally, you may be given a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable. After injecting the gel, we’ll gently press on the area around the injection site to ensure that the filler is positioned correctly. Within an hour, you can reapply your makeup and resume your regular routine without delay.
Juvederm instantly smoothes, plumps, and volumizes the face once it has been injected beneath the skin. These instant results are a nice way to feel gratified immediately. In most cases, Juvederm results do not fully develop or settle until two weeks after treatment. A small adjustment to the results can be made by your healthcare provider during this two-week period before the gel fully integrates with tissues.
Almost all dermal fillers undergo a natural process of settling after injection. Patients benefit from long-lasting results because of this settling process. Juvederm injectable is one of the fastest to settle of all fillers. It can take months for some dermal fillers to fully settle.
Some results from Juvederm will be immediately visible but it will take a couple of weeks to see the final effects. It is partly determined by where the injection is performed that your results will last. Injections in areas of the face that are frequently in motion, such as the forehead or lips, tend to last a shorter period of time. Under-eye injections usually last longer than injections in other areas. Most patients need only one treatment, after which they can enjoy their results for several years. Follow-up sessions can be scheduled when the effects of the first injection wear off.
