A Guide To Juvederm

Posted January 11, 2022 in Injectables & Fillers, by Dr. Fiorillo

As we age, deep wrinkles and furrows can appear in the skin. The presence of these lines will often make you look older and tired and they commonly develop around the eyes and mouth. Fortunately, a new dermal filler called Juvederm can help to eliminate these lines and help you regain your youthful appearance. The Injectable Gel is known to restore a younger and refreshed appearance in older adults.

Juvederm is approved by the FDA and is available as an injection made of hyaluronic acid. The product is easily injected into the skin and produces immediate results. The product provides many benefits to people of all ages, including:

  • The reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • The elimination of deep lines around the mouth and eyes
  • The ability to regain a youthful appearance
  • The reduction of the lines that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth, also called nasolabial folds

Best Candidates

The product is available for any individual who is unhappy with their physical appearance and signs of aging. There are no major risks associated with the treatment. It is safe for people of all ages.

The Procedure

The injection of Juvederm will only take about 15 minutes at the doctor’s office. There is no need for anesthesia. Some patients will ask for a topical anesthetic to numb the area before the injection. The injection is then given to an area that is targeted. Following the injection, a gentle massage will help the gel work quickly. When the injection process is completed, patients can resume normal activities, but they should avoid the following for 24 hours:

  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Exposure to extreme heat
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Consumption of alcohol

Juvederm has been clinically proven to effectively erase the signs of aging by filling in deep lines and wrinkles. If you believe you could benefit from a Juvederm Injection, please contact us today.
