Over the past several years, Juvederm® has quickly become a household name. This FDA-approved solution is at the cutting-edge of facial filler technologies. Designed to instantly fill in deep creases and facial hollows that are the result of age-related volume loss, this popular injectable is often called the “liquid facelift”. With Juvederm®, it’s possible to instantly minimize some of the more advanced signs of facial aging without the need for cutting, downtime or tissue removal. Following are five impressive advantages that Juvederm has over other cosmetic procedures.
1. Juvederm® Replenishes Lost Hyaluronic Acid Stores
Hyaluronic acid is a special skin-supporting acid that exists at the very foundational layer of your skin. Much like collagen, the availability of hyaluronic acid can decrease as people grow older. This is one of many factors that contributes to the gradual breakdown in the integrity of the skin. As both hyaluronic acid and collagen decrease, the skin can take on a loose, sagging look. This is when deep creases and facial hollows start to form. When Juvederm® is injected into these areas, the hyaluronic acid that it contains will instantly bind to your skin cells. It will also attract and retain water molecules that effectively fill your skin back out. This allows for an instantly refreshed and far more youthful look overall.
2. Get Natural-Looking Results in Almost No Time at All
If you’re looking to get a fresh and revitalized appearance without having to undergo an invasive procedure, then this treatment could be right for you. This treatment rarely lasts beyond 20 minutes. Much like injections of purified neuromodulators for releasing dynamic wrinkles, Juvederm® is considered a lunchtime facelift. This treatment is so fast and simple that a lot of people have it performed right on their lunch breaks.
3. Use It Safely with Other Non-Invasive Anti-Aging Treatments
Juvederm® pairs surprisingly well with a broad range of non-invasive anti-aging treatments. The injections are meant to address deep, facial creases known as static wrinkles. These wrinkles often travel along the nasolabial folds but can also be found just below the cheekbones. For those with crow’s feet, frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles, this treatment can be safely combined with treatments like BOTOX®.
4. No Downtime
There’s absolutely no downtime with Juvederm®, and there are very few after-effects. Any side effects are mild and disappear quickly. More often than not, it’s possible to immediately return to work or other scheduled activities right after your injections are complete.
5. Choose a Solution That’s Perfectly in Line with Your Goals and Needs
One of the greatest benefits provided by Juvederm® is the fact that it’s such a flexible, versatile product. There are currently several versions of the formula that patients and their providers can choose from. The most popular Juvederm® solution contains a built-in anesthetic and lasts roughly six to nine months. With this product, patients are never at risk of getting stuck with long-term treatment results that they don’t like. For those seeking extended benefits from their injections, there are also dermal fillers in this line that last a year or more.
