Do you wish to smooth your moderate to severe fine lines and facial wrinkles, but don’t want to undergo extensive surgeries? Could your lips use a natural-looking plump? Check out Juvéderm dermal fillers!
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that uses a hyaluronic acid-based gel to add volume to your lips or skin. This filler can target lines and wrinkles around your mouth, nasolabial folds, furrow lines between your brows, and depressed scars. FDA-approved Juvéderm injections are injected underneath the skin into the facial tissue to plump up age-related volume loss and provide a more even, smooth skin texture.
As for your lips, this solution can provide a non-surgical lip augmentation for fuller lips. Juvederm offers a variety of products like Juvederm Ultra XC, Voluma XC, and Volbella XC, each designed for different areas of the face.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are beneficial for many patients because it is a natural substance and there is little risk of an allergic reaction. If you have severe facial wrinkles or areas of your skin that you wish to add natural-looking volume (like the cheeks, lips, or jawline), Juvéderm may be right for you. You must also be in good health and a non-smoker.
If you have an active skin infection, a history of pigmentation disorders, or excessive scarring at the treatment site, we may recommend another procedure or ask you to wait for your skin injection procedures. If you hope to treat significant loose skin, surgical procedures like a facelift may benefit you more.
How are Juvéderm injections performed?
Your Juvéderm treatment will vary based on the depth of scarring or imperfections and the number of areas that need to be treated. To minimize pain, Dr. Basile will first apply a lidocaine gel to numb and block your nerves. Some patients report minor stinging when first injected, but it is a nearly painless process. Once the injection of hyaluronic acid is introduced, it will attract water molecules and plump up the skin to even out your unwanted wrinkles.
Results and Recovery
After Juvederm facial injection procedures, mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the injection site are common but these symptoms will improve within a few days. Depending on your average facial muscle movement, Juvéderm can last anywhere from 9-12 months. Between 1-2 weeks after your injections, your swelling and bruising will subside. There is no scarring with Juvederm and results can be seen almost immediately!
