After receiving its FDA approval in 2006, the Juvederm line has since become the go-to injectable treatment for the restoration of facial contours. This non-surgical enhancement is designed specifically to add volume to the cheeks, under eyes, around the mouth (labial folds), and most commonly, the lips. Depending on the individual concerns, there are specific treatment options for each of these areas. Juvederm is a gel-like substance made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural occurring component in the body that aids in the production of collagen. The lack of hyaluronic acid causes skin to lose its structure and volume, leading to unwanted wrinkles and folds. After discussing your aesthetic goals, a fine needle is used to inject the “filler” into the targeted areas and lightly massaged to ensure even distribution. The appointment itself only lasts 15-20 minutes. Results are often immediate and typically last between six months to a year. You can expect some swelling and occasional bruising, although these side effects often subside within two weeks, leaving you with a noticeably rejuvenated appearance!
