The formation of wrinkles is one of the most common signs of aging that people experience as they get older. In some, they often appear before they’re supposed to. This can be due to high levels of stress that one takes on in their daily life and several other factors like sun damage, genetics, smoking, a poor skin care routine, and more. 

Though creams, moisturizers, and other skin care products reduce their visibility, there are better solutions that can provide you with a smoother and more youthful look faster.

Rejuvenate Your Skin’s Youthful Looks With Juvederm

Juvederm is a family of injectables that was approved by the FDA in 2006. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. Hyaluronic acid delivers nutrients to the skin and helps it retain moisture. 

It adds volume and softness to the skin and is the reason behind someone’s healthy-looking and vibrant appearance. Juvederm is developed using Hylacross technology and unlike other products made from hyaluronic acid gel, it is a smooth gel with a superb, non-grainy consistency. 

How Does Juvederm Work?

Juvederm is injected deep into the skin in the treatment area. The hyaluronic acid present in Juvederm acts as a cushioning agent by holding in water at the treatment site. This adds volume and smoothes the skin in the treated site. 

The cross-linked formulation used in Juvederm adds volume and corrects the deeper folds and wrinkles and can easily treat moderate to severe facial folds. 

It is the go-to treatment for marionette lines and nasolabial folds, which are not easy to treat. The results of the treatment last for up to two years with proper skin care.

Juvederm vs. Facelift

A facelift, also called rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess facial skin, treats the underlying tissues, and re-drapes the facial skin. This surgery is highly effective in eliminating wrinkles and providing patients with a significant boost in their youthful looks. But like every other surgery, a traditional facelift has risks. These risks include

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Reaction to anaesthesia
  • Infections to the incision site
  • Increased pain

A traditional facelift requires a lot of downtime as well. Patients who undergo the procedure must make sure they take time off to rest and recover. The post-surgery care is crucial and involves a lot of risk and discomfort as well. Not everyone wants an intensive procedure like this, so dermal fillers are a great option for those with aversions to surgical techniques.

Fortunately, Juvederm is a great option for people who fall under that category. The risks associated with Juvederm are minimal, but the benefits provided by the treatment are substantial. 

After undergoing the treatment, some patients may experience bruising, discoloration, and itching and swelling in the injected area, but these side effects are will subside quickly. Patients can safely undergo the Juvederm treatment and return to their normal daily activities without having to go through a long period of downtime.

It’s the ideal solution for anyone who isn’t happy with their appearance and wants to eliminate those unsightly wrinkles and fine lines.
