The ravages of time can definitely take a toll on a person’s appearance. Sadly, certain facial changes are inevitable. As you grow older, natural volume loss will invariably occur. Moreover, you’ll also experience significant decreases in the overall integrity and resilience of your skin. What’s often most disturbing about these developments, however, is the noticeable impact that they can have on the way in which others see you. In an increasingly appearance-conscious society, growing older physically can actually make you less marketable in commercial and social arenas, even as it decreases your confidence. The good news is that JUVEDERM® can help you maintain your vibrant and undeniably youthful good looks far longer.
This revolutionary filler is being used in various cosmetic applications to restore mid-face volume, fill in fine lines and static wrinkles, diminish the appearance of sagging skin, and eliminate facial hollows. In addition to being incredibly effective in each of its FDA-approved roles, this injectable also allows for a safe, ultra-rapid, and truly pain-free treatment. Countless people throughout the world are taking advantage of regular JUVEDERM® injections to both rejuvenate their looks and refine select facial features. If you’ve been looking for an easy and absolutely non-surgical way to dramatically enhance your appearance, keep reading to learn more about what JUVEDERM® is capable of doing for you.
Enjoy a Fast and Incredibly Comfortable Treatment
JUVEDERM® is a popular, hyaluronic acid-based filler . Hyaluronic acid or HA, is a powerful, skin-supporting substance that exists all throughout the connective tissues in your body. Best of all, all of the injectable gels from the JUVEDERM® line have a potent, built-in anesthetic. The lidocaine that these products contain ensures that the entire treatment process is easy and pain-free. Best of all, most of the procedures performed with JUVEDERM® products can be completed in just 20 minutes or less. This means that you can schedule your appointment during your lunch break, and you’ll still have time to grab your favorite salad on the way back to your office. There are virtually no after-effects with this procedure either. Some patients experience a mild amount of redness and swelling at or around the treatment area, but these developments are generally inconspicuous, short-lived, and capable of abating entirely on their own. Currently, these short, in-office treatments are ranked among the fastest and most effective, non-invasive rejuvenation procedures.
Hydrate Your Skin from the Inside Out
Like many consumers, you may be under the impression that the facial volume gained during a JUVEDERM® treatment comes directly from the injectable itself. In reality, however, added fullness is instead obtained from the hydrating activity incited by this product. Once inserted inside of the skin, the HA that JUVEDERM® contains instantly starts attracting water molecules. These molecules are collected from surrounding areas and retained at the treatment site so that surface lines, creases, and sagging skin are smoothly and evenly filled out. An added benefit of this process is significantly increased hydration throughout all skin layers. As a result, the surface skin will also have a vibrant, dewy look, along with increased elasticity and resilience.
JUVEDERM® is Frequently Used in Liquid Face Lift Procedures
Volume loss isn’t just a skin issue. As people age, they can also experience decreases in facial bone density that lead to loose and sagging skin along the jaw and around the cheekbones. Face lifts correct sagging skin by excising or removing extra tissues and then drawing the entire visage slightly up. When performed skillfully, these procedures have a remarkable ability to turn back the proverbial hands of time. Unfortunately, however, even the least invasive of these surgeries entail a considerable amount of risk and significant downtime.
Face lifts performed solely with injectables are called liquid face lifts. These procedures can produce similar results to surgical skin lifting treatments, without requiring tissue removal or an extended recovery. In fact, with liquid face lifts, no openings need to be made at all. This minimizes the risks associated with skin tightening, and it eliminates the potential for scarring. During these treatments, high-quality fillers such as JUVEDERM® are paired with injectable neurotoxins like BOTOX. This combination can reduce the appearance of sagging skin, dynamic wrinkles, and static facial creasing all at once. Full treatment results can manifest within just a matter of days, and most patients experience little to no downtime.
You Don’t Have to Commit to Permanent Results with JUVEDERM®
One of the best-loved benefits of JUVEDERM® is its ability to create dramatic facial changes, without requiring patients to commit to permanent results. With invasive, surgical procedures, people always face the risk of getting lasting changes they don’t care for. Conversely, hyaluronic acid-based fillers are very easy for the body to break down. In fact, the most commonly used JUVEDERM® formula can be broken down and eliminated by the body within months. It’s also important to know that if you like the way that dermal fillers make you look, and want to retain your improvements, you can always schedule another appointment with the doctor to have the treatment repeated. Many of these products are safe for use one to two times each year.
Choose a Formula that’s Right for You
When receiving JUVEDERM® injections, you’ll find that there are a number of injectable gels to choose from. Although all of these formulas are HA-based, and although all of them contain lidocaine for anesthesia, they can greatly differ in both application and duration. For longer-lasting benefits, and for use in lip augmentation and non-surgical rhinoplasty, VyCross technology has been used to make the HA inside of JUVEDERM® more challenging for the body to break down. Cross-linked HA is a form of hyaluronic acid that’s been built with both large and small-sized molecules. When cross-linked HA is inserted into the skin, it produces the same aesthetic and deeply hydrating benefits that basic JUVEDERM® is known for, but the resulting changes can last much longer. JUVEDERM® with cross-linked HA is perfect for people who’ve had experience with dermal fillers in the past, and who are now ready to commit to longer-lasting benefits. Patients can currently choose from injectables with results lasting from six months to 24 months, and even beyond. Finding the right JUVEDERM® solution for your needs is as easy as scheduling a consultation appointment.
Look and Feel Instantly Younger
The fast-acting benefits of these injectables can have a tremendous impact on both your marketability and your overall quality of life. At certain stages of life, the speed at which the aging process progresses can make it difficult to recognize your own reflection in the mirror. Being able to instantly restore lost volume, and to instantly tighten loose and sagging skin, will increase your confidence significantly. When people feel youthful and robust, they’re often able to make better impressions on the people around them. Dramatic and natural-looking changes to your appearance may even make you more positive and proactive in both your social and professional life. If you want to look your best for a job interview, your wedding, a big and long-awaited trip, or a promotion ceremony, this treatment can produce the aesthetic improvements that you’re seeking, and within a very nominal amount of time.
What to Expect After Your Procedure
For most anti-aging treatments, this fast-acting gel will produce immediate results, with the promise of providing additional benefits over the three to seven days that follow treatment. As more water is accumulated throughout the targeted area, fullness will increase, and volume-related aesthetic issues will abate. Apart from a very moderate amount of redness and swelling, there are generally no aftereffects to contend with.
In lip augmentation, liquid face lift, and non-surgical rhinoplasty procedures, however, more of the filler material is often used. As such, it may be necessary for patients to remain prone for a time so that the gel has ample opportunity to set. Excess movement immediately after these treatments can cause the solution to begin migrating out of targeted areas. Due to this fact, these procedures frequently require several hours of downtime. With any of these procedures, the doctor will always provide individualized aftercare instructions according to your unique circumstances and needs. It is vital to note that the doctor will use only the amount of filler that is necessary for achieving the desired results. Inserting very modest amounts of filler at each injection site produces the most natural-looking enhancements. It also helps minimize the resulting downtime.
This Product is Unlikely to Cause Unpleasant Side Effects
HA-based fillers are easy for the body to break down. They are also easy for the body to recognize. This helps limit the likelihood of irritation and negative reactions after the product has been inserted into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in your connective tissues and joints. It is also present at the interior layers of the dermis. As such, JUVEDERM® injections are simply supplying your body with more of a substance that it already produces and fully understands. This allows for very low-risk procedures, especially when compared with alternative fillers that lack naturally-occurring, primary components like HA.
Are You a Good Candidate For JUVEDERM® Treatment?
JUVEDERM® is a surprisingly flexible product that can be used in a very diverse range of cosmetic applications. FDA-approved for restoring lost volume at the mid-portion of the face, enhancing the lips, and non-surgically refining the nose, these gels provide a safe and easy method for creating remarkable improvements across the entire visage. You may be a suitable candidate for these treatments if you’re looking for a safe and non-invasive way to reverse the effects of the normal aging process, create greater symmetry and balance across your face, and completely hydrate your skin from the inside out. When scheduling your consultation appointment, be ready to talk with the doctor about any experience that you’ve had with injectable cosmetics in the past. Timing follow-up treatments correctly is key to ensuring optimum results.
JUVEDERM® Can Be Used for Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement
The JUVEDERM® line has made lip augmentation infinitely safer and easier. Moreover, with the hydrating benefits of JUVEDERM®, patients can look forward to both fuller and shapelier lips, as well as lips that are undeniably softer and more kissable all-around. These procedures can add volume to one or both lips, refine the overall lip shape, restore lost volume due to aging, smoking, or other life factors, and establish balance across all facial features. There are no surgical openings, and there’s little to no downtime with JUVEDERM® lip augmentation. Not only can these treatments significantly enhance a person’s confidence, but they can additionally eliminate the need to continue investing in costly lip liners, plumping agents, and other cosmetic products designed to produce very short-lived changes.
Doctors Can Even Use JUVEDERM® for Non-Invasive Rhinoplasty
Surgical rhinoplasty procedures can be lengthy and fairly high in risk. They also require a considerable amount of downtime and diligent aftercare. Luckily, this innovative injectable has made it possible for doctors to add volume to the nose, refine and enhance the nostrils, bridge, and nose tip, and reduce the visible signs of nose trauma, without having to make even a single surgical opening. The JUVEDERM® formula used in these procedures is built to be a bit longer-lasting than the injectables used in JUVEDERM® anti-aging treatments. Notwithstanding, liquid nose jobs do not provide permanent results and thus, patients are never at risk of receiving lasting changes that they don’t particularly care for.
Balance Out Your Facial Proportions with JUVEDERM®
Given its ability to selectively add volume to the face and to individual facial features, JUVEDERM® is a great tool for patients who want to balance out their facial proportions without having to undergo cosmetic surgery. For instance, if you have recently had cheek implants and want a non-invasive way to add volume to your nose tip or lips, JUVEDERM® can be used to create the perfect proportions, increased symmetry, and better all-around facial balance.
Why Choose JUVEDERM® for Your Cosmetic Treatment?
JUVEDERM® is a highly trusted and highly relied upon filler throughout the cosmetic industry. This is largely due to its superior composition and its remarkable level of flexibility. When used properly, this injectable is capable of creating the same improvements that were once only obtained via invasive, skin-tightening procedures. In fact, in many instances, JUVEDERM® injectables are capable of creating far more natural-looking improvements than either face lifts or mini face lifts. Patients love being able to renew their appearances without facing the high risks of surgery. They also enjoy being able to reveal their improvements shortly after their procedures, and without having to engage in a lot of challenging aftercare. These procedures are popular, easy, and virtually guaranteed to produce positive results.
