There are a lot of aspects of our appearance that we have a level of control over. For example, if we are overweight, we can diet and exercise to drop a few pounds. Then there are aspects of our appearance that we have little to no control over. For example, if a person was 5’2”, but they want to be 6’1”, there is little that they can do to attain this goal.
Thankfully, wrinkles and facial folds fall into the category of appearance issues that we can change by using amazing products like Juvederm®.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is part of a group of cosmetic products that use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. They have been used for many years as part of a cosmetic regimen designed to address facial wrinkles and facial folds.
This product has been especially effective in addressing wrinkles that form around the nose and at the corners of the mouth. It is not designed to be used to provide fuller lips or for any other form of facial augmentation.
A hallmark of Juvederm® products is the fact that they are created with a smooth, consistent, gel-like texture. Other hyaluronic products are designed with a granular consistency.
This allows the product to be applied in a more consistent and smooth way, leading to more natural contours in the face.
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the human body as a sugar. When injected into a person’s face, it attracts the water and holds it in the injection site.
It temporarily increases the volume in a person’s face, gives them smoother skin and overall makes them look younger. For most patients, multiple Juvederm® treatments are required to produce great results.
Is Juvederm® Safe?
Absolutely. Juvederm® has been tested in multiple clinical studies. These clinical studies evaluated the product for its safety, as well as its effectiveness. In both categories, Juvederm® scored higher than the majority of its competitors.
Juvederm® should only be administered by a licensed health care practitioner, like Dr. Lipschitz at Athena Plastic Surgery. Patients who are using medication that will prolong bleeding and increase bruising, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, should talk to our physician prior to having treatment done.
