What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® is an injectable aesthetic treatment that can provide patients with 6-12 months of moderate to severe wrinkle correction. It can be used to treat crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, marionette lines, and smile lines. FDA approved for cosmetic use in 2006, this dermal filler harnesses the power of hyaluronic acid to infuse the skin with extra volume, creating a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.
How Does it Work?
Like many other dermal fillers, JUVEDERM® is comprised of hyaluronic acid. When injected into the skin, this substance attracts water molecules to the treatment area. These water molecules infuse wrinkles and fine lines with additional volume and fullness, smoothing and softening their appearance. Hyaluronic acid also causes the body to create additional collagen, a structural protein vital to supporting the overall structure and appearance of the skin.
Unlike other hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers, this product is made using hylacross technology. This technique results in a gel that is more smooth, malleable, and precise than other dermal fillers. It allows our aesthetic experts at Better Life to deliver beautiful, natural-looking skin rejuvenation, every time.
What can I Expect from a JUVEDERM® Treatment?
Because this product is indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, JUVEDERM® injections are significantly less painful than other dermal fillers. Each injection session takes about 20 minutes to complete and features little to no downtime. While side effects like redness, pain, firmness, swelling, bruising, itching, and discoloration are common, these usually subside within a few days after treatment.
Am I a Candidate for this Treatment?
Nearly any man or woman interested in adding extra volume to their wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds is a potential candidate for JUVEDERM®. Before undergoing treatment, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff. During this appointment, one of our practice’s aesthetic professionals will take into account your treatment goals, current state of health, and medical history in order to decide if JUVEDERM® is right for you.
