When wrinkles set in, facial fillers can fade and smooth them away. Juvéderm is one popular injectable gel that restores facial volume, creating a more hydrated and healthier appearance. The results typically last for about a year.
How It Works
The aging face gradually loses volume under the skin, forming unwanted wrinkles, lines, folds and hollows. Juvéderm can be injected to fill creases precisely and to restore lost volume. It may also be used to adjust the structure or shape of the face to create more youthful or desirable contours. The effect can be reversed by another type of injection for patients who do not like the results.
Patients seeking a minimally invasive method for facial rejuvenation turn to Juvéderm. This treatment is popular because it actually replenishes one component of human collagen — hyaluronic acid (HA). HA naturally occurs in the skin, but diminishes with age. After injection, the body recognizes HA as “self,” which contributes to the safety and success of this procedure.
The Time Line
Patients generally experience an extended period of fullness and volume after this treatment. The time frame for results varies for each patient and largely depends on the location and type of injection. However, most people will have results for a minimum of six months. The general rule is that injections in more mobile areas will not last as long as injections in less mobile areas. Less mobile areas take more time to absorb the filler, so the results will last longer. Juvéderm Voluma is cross-linked for durability and can last for up to two years!
Patients should consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine whether this treatment is a good match. A professional can help each person find the most effective and long lasting Juvéderm treatment.
