Juvederm has a wide range of formulations that can address almost all aging problems in the face and neck area. It can treat fine lines, folds, and wrinkles. It is a fine gel that fills in the wrinkles and facial lines. Juvederm consists of hyaluronic acid which is known for its versatility and longevity. Renowned surgeons like Dr. Bloch say that a simple procedure of injecting this gel under the skin results to a younger looking face.
Is Juvederm for you?
Do you want even-toned skin that is smooth and soft? Then this product is for you because it hydrates the skin and helps the skin cells to hold moisture for longer periods of time. The effects of Juvederm last up to 15 months. Using this facial injection, a surgeon can treat the skin on the hands, face and neck and help to restore its natural glow. It also has an anti-oxidizing agent that prevents free radicals from building under the skin.
How does it work?
In general terms, Juvederm adds volume and definition to the contours of the mouth and the outline of the face. The fine line in the corners of the mouth is filled with this gentle gel and gives an even look over all. The gel is induced in problematic areas by the doctor using a fine needle.
Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid because it is natural to the body. The main function of this acid is to hydrate the skin and deliver the essential nutrients to the skin cells. It helps the cells hold water and acts as a cushion for the skin. As a person gets older, the body produces lesser quantities of this acid. Products like Juvederm fill in the gaps.
Is there any downtime?
As with any facial injection, minor swelling and bruising may appear after the treatment with a short lasting duration (7 days or less). Normal activities may be resumed immediately after the treatment.
Are there any side effects?
Most people who use Juvederm do not experience any side effects. Even if some people do, the effects last only for 7 days and they are not severe. Consult a surgeon like Dr. Bloch to find out the suitability of the product for you. This facial injection can address the initial signs of aging and can give you lasting results.
