Deep wrinkles and other signs of aging of the face can be effectively improved with Juvederm®. This injectable dermal filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, and does not require an allergy test. With Juvederm, patients at Aspira Plastic Surgery can restore their youthful volume without the surgery!
What can Juvederm Do?
Juvederm filler can effectively restore volume to the face to improve:
- Smile lines
- Lip lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Thin lips
- Flattened cheeks
- Sunken undereyes
Juvederm can prolong the need for a surgical procedure, however, those with more severe signs of aging like facial sagging may benefit more from a procedure like a facelift or neck lift. If wrinkles in the upper face are present with facial expressions, patients might talk with Dr. Erella about adding Botox. Dr. Erella will examine your concerns to determine if Juvederm is the right treatment for you.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm® works to smooth out wrinkles and creases, and can also be used to add volume and contour to the lips and cheeks. The gel is gently injected into the the treatment area to instantly fill in lines and folds. The treatment process takes about 30 minutes or less. The areas being treated can be numbed before the procedure to make you as comfortable as possible.
Side Effects of Juvederm
While there may be some mild redness and swelling present around the injection sites after treatment with Juvederm filler, this should fade quickly. Most patients are able to resume normal daily activities right after Juvederm treatment. Patients should avoid direct sunlight and wear sunscreen when outdoors.
Results of Juvederm
Juvederm is known for its instant and long-lasting results. In many cases, results can last up to nine months or more. The effects can be maintained with follow-up treatments. Dr. Erella also offers a new formulation, Juvederm Voluma XC, which can last even longer – up to 2 years!
