Juvederm is a gel that consists of filler injections as its active ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is largely used in the manufacture of these gels, and this makes Juvederm a very popular form of treatment for smoothing folds and wrinkles that develop on the surface of the skin. Smile lines, can be effectively treated using this gel. Juvederm is the first dermal filler approved by American FDA that consists of hyaluronic acid.
Advantages of Juvederm
There are a number of advantages to using Juvederm. The effects starts with plumping of the skin, followed with moisturizing. Simultaneously, the gel also works to restore the hydro balance of the skin. Studies have confirmed that repeated sessions of injections builds collagen in the skin. All this working together gives you quick results, and you can notice the cosmetic effect almost instantly. The skin looks fuller and firmer, and your face will have a healthier and youthful look.
The procedure for using Juvederm is fairly simple. First, your doctor will target the injection area and apply topical numbing creams to it. A thorough cleansing follows then, and using a very thin syringe, your doctor will inject Juvederm in the targeted area of the face.
Typically, one injection of Juvederm is enough to notice the effects. Being a gel, Juvederm is very soft, and can be slightly molded once it has been injected in the skin. Given its reversible nature, your doctor can also induce a medicine to dissolve its active ingredient and undo the changes. Also, Juvederm acts as soft filler compared to other products in this category, for example Restylane which is slightly firmer in nature.
