Juvederm®, a technique you may know little about, is a beneficial skin treatment that can erase or slow down many signs of aging. As a cosmetic anti-aging filler, Juvederm® can help plump up your lips, treat scars from acne, and fill in and erase wrinkles. There are many benefits of choosing Juvederm as your treatment option, here are just a few:
1. Juvederm® is minimally invasive
Using a very small needle, the Juvederm® procedure consists of just a few tiny injections. Due to this, there is virtually zero risk of scarring. It is an outpatient procedure, and you can go about your daily activities after having your treatment. There is also a very low risk of any Juvederm® side effects, while any rare side effects that do occur are typically mild.
2. Made of hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within our skin, is the main “ingredient” in Juvederm®. Over the years, our bodies begin to produce less and less Hyaluronic acid, this is why so many anti-aging products contain it. It helps attract moisture to the treatment area, while collagen is being produced by the Juvederm®.
3. Contains Lidocaine
In order for patients to experience the maximum amount of comfort, Juvederm® contains Lidocaine, an anesthetic.
4. Perfect for those who want to slow the signs of aging
The ideal candidate for Juvederm® is someone with mild to moderate wrinkles, and isn’t quite ready to commit to a more invasive procedure. The treatment costs and risks are minimal, while the results are extremely noticeable. Juvederm® can also be used to treat patients who have severe wrinkles, however, this may require a more specialized treatment regimen.
5. Can also be used on lips
If you have thinning lips and would like them to be fuller, there is no need for a separate procedure. Juvederm® can plump up lips while making them appear to be natural and younger looking.
