Juvederm is a kind of injectable dermal filler used to reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds temporarily. The procedure can be used for facial contouring and to improve the appearance of acne scars.
The providers at Coastal Dermatology Laser & Medical apply Juvederm to your problem areas, including the lines around your mouth, nose, and forehead. Sometimes Juvederm is used to enhance the size and shape of your lips as well.
The active ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, a polymer composed of two sugars that are naturally found in your body. Not only does keep your skin full and elastic, but hyaluronic acid also works as a moisturizer by helping to maintain the water in your skin.
After deciding which facial areas to treat, the providers at Coastal Dermatology Laser & Medical will numb those specific areas with a topical anesthetic cream to ensure you’re comfortable during the procedure. The needles used to inject Juvederm are very thin and involve only a little pressure. The treatment session typically lasts about thirty minutes.
You should try to avoid extensive sun exposure, strenuous exercise and alcoholic beverages with the first 24 hours after your injection. If not you might experience redness, swelling, or itching at your injection site.
You will notice the effects of Juvederm right away. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve the optimal results they're looking for, which will last about nine months to a year. Once your body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid, you can return for additional treatment if you want to continue the desired look.
Sometimes patients receive Juvederm in combination with BOTOX® to achieve an even more dramatic effect. Call Coastal Dermatology Laser & Medical today or book an appointment online to learn about your options to enhance your facial features.
