While you might already know the many benefits of Juvederm®, you might not know how the procedure works. Compared to other cosmetic procedures. Juvederm is quite simple. Learn how the procedure works and why it is so effective.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a type of injectable filler. In the filler, you can find hyaluronic acid. As a natural complex sugar, hyaluronic acid is a common ingredient in anti-aging skin products. Instead of simply rubbing a cream that contains hyaluronic acid onto your face, you can get it under the surface of your skin with Juvederm®. After a Juvederm® injection, your skin will look more smooth and supple. In a way, it reverses the aging process.
How does it work?
Before your Juvederm® injection, you will speak with a specialist. She will explain the process to you and make you feel comfortable about the procedure. She will also determine the best way to get your desired results.
Then, you will get an injection into your face. The injection goes to the skin layer below the skin’s surface that contains nerves, blood vessels and oil glands. Once injected, Juvederm® has immediate results. Your face gets lifted and your wrinkles and folds might disappear. After approximately six to nine months, your body absorbs the compound naturally.
Your specialist might give you the option to come in for a follow-up treatment. If you take advantage of that treatment, then the effects could be longer lasting. However, your specialist can inform you whether or not a follow-up procedure is necessary.
Why is it effective?
There are several reasons that Juvederm® is so effective at repairing your skin. For one, it is a bio-compatible compound. As you age, your body depletes itself of hyaluronic acid. Juvederm® merely gives you more of it.
Another reason for its effectiveness is its versatility. If you want to treat deep facial folds or long-lasting effects, then you can use Juvederm® Ultra Plus. For restoring volume to your cheeks, you can use Juvederm® Voluma. With Juvederm® Voluma, you can also treat the areas between your cheeks and nose and your marionette lines.
Finally, Juvederm is highly effective because it has the consistency of a gel. Unlike rigid fillers, Juvederm® offers a more natural look.
