Aging takes a toll on your entire face, with lines and wrinkles appearing around the mouth, eyes, cheeks, and from nose to mouth.
These lines and wrinkles can make us appear old, tired, or even sad or angry. Juvederm is a non-surgical filler that has significant benefits. This product is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that lasts and lasts – for a year or longer in most patients. This injectable gel can rejuvenate your facial appearance and stave off the impact of time, giving you a fresher, more youthful and appealing look.
How Does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm is administered with a very fine needle, carefully eased under the skin, and injected into the dermis, the dense inner layer beneath the epidermis. It brings added volume that reduces the appearance of folds and wrinkles. Tired of seeing creases, lip lines, smile lines, or folds from nose to mouth? Juvederm is an advanced, non-surgical treatment that smooths wrinkles and folds, and lasts longer than many other injectables.
Should I Get Juvederm Treatments?
Many people, both men and women, can restore and rejuvenate the appearance of the face with Juvederm injections. These injections should be performed by a highly-skilled practitioner, so that this long-lasting gel filler is injected carefully and correctly under the skin. You are probably a candidate for Juvederm if:
- You have lines around your mouth (marionette lines)
- You have wrinkles from nose to mouth
- You have deep folds or grooves in your face that make you appear old, tired, or unhappy
- Your cheeks appear lined, creased, or saggy
- You have lost facial tissue volume and your face has a gaunt, tired appearance
Juvederm Treatment: What to Expect
Juvederm treatments do not involve downtime or recovery time. Pop in for treatment after work or any convenient time that suits your busy schedule. Every injectable or surgical procedure requires a full evaluation of your current health and the condition of your skin, so plan for an initial consultation prior to treatment. It is important that Dr. Birely knows all medications (including supplements) that you take. He will evaluate the condition of your skin, as well as getting a medical history, for your own safety.
Juvederm – Long Lasting Treatment for Facial Wrinkles and Folds
There are several formulas of Juvederm, and the initial evaluation will allow Dr. Birely to determine which product to use for various wrinkles and folds. For 24 hours after treatment, it is advised that you avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, exposure to high heat, and avoid alcohol. This can help to minimize the risk of swelling or itching. Should you experience any itching or swelling, the application of an ice pack to the area is usually enough to bring relief.
Next Generation Facial Filler
As technology evolves, newer cosmetic injectable products are developed and released on the market, with better results. Juvederm is longer lasting that other facial fillers, and is the perfect product to smooth and correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is different than Botox, which relaxes specific facial muscles -- Juvederm restores lost volume for a smooth, natural look. The active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that acts as a cushion and lubricant and keeps the skin stable and renewed. The formulation in Juvederm is customized to achieve both lift and duration. Young, healthy skin contains an abundance of hyaluronic acid, but as the years pass by, it diminishes. The lack of hyaluronic acid allows for the skin to lose its structure and volume and wrinkles and folds appear. Ready for a new, younger-looking you? We can help!
Mid-Face Aging – A Solution that Works
As we age, the mid-face flattens, and the skin in the area can begin to sag. Age-related volume loss can be treated with Juvederm, usually with immediate results. The curve from cheekbone to the mid-face hollow, as the tissue is lost, brings about the appearance of age. With Juvederm, a more youthful appearance can be restored for a smooth, natural, and more youthful-looking result.
Facial Rejuvenation Without Surgery
Many patients do not want to have surgery, but need a facial rejuvenation treatment that works. Juvederm brings great results without the need for surgery, and is sometimes called a “liquid face lift.” Want to look younger, more vital, and feel happier with your facial appearance?
