With Juvéderm, You Can Have Wrinkle-Free Skin

September 21, 2018, 1:15 am

Facial wrinkles are a natural part of aging. However, sometimes they set in sooner than we might like, leaving us unhappy with our appearance. Everyone wants to hold on to their youth a little longer, especially if their body is still active and energetic.

Thanks to developments in modern medicine, it is possible to maintain younger-looking wrinkle-free skin for longer. While surgical procedures are available to tighten the skin and remove wrinkles, there are now also a number of non-surgical procedures that offer excellent results.

One of these non-surgical procedures is Juvéderm. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal-filler product that helps to plump and rehydrate skin, reducing wrinkles.

Understanding Juvéderm

Juvéderm is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps keep it hydrated and elastic. As we age, the body produces less hyaluronic acid, bringing on the onset of wrinkles.

Juvéderm is in the form of a smooth gel. When it is injected under the skin, it helps to add volume and remove harsh folds, fine lines, and moderate wrinkles. Juvéderm works well on many different types of facial wrinkles, including parentheses lines and the nasolabial folds.

The filler attracts water molecules, keeping the skin hydrated. More supple and hydrated skin shows fewer wrinkles and makes the skin look smoother and more youthful.

The Advantages of Juvéderm Over Other Procedures

Less downtime: Being a non-surgical procedure, Juvéderm doesn’t take very long to complete and requires no recovery time. The procedure gives you great results and saves you a lot of time.

Hypoallergenic: Juvéderm is a naturally occurring substance in the body and does not cause allergic reactions. For this reason, it is safe to use even on people prone to allergies.

Long-lasting results: Treatments like Botox have results that last for a maximum of four months. Juvéderm’s results can last for a whole year.

More even results: Because Juvéderm is a smooth gel, it gets distributed more evenly under the skin, resulting in a more consistent effect.

What Is the Procedure Like?

If you are considering getting a Juvéderm treatment, make sure to first consult with Dr. Hlavacek. During this consultation, you can discuss your expectations for the treatment and get a clear idea of what you can look forward to. You can also ask any questions you may have.

Juvéderm comes in different strengths, and depending on your case and your desired results, Dr. Hlavacek will decide which strength is best for you.

During the procedure, the doctor will identify the treatment areas and inject the Juvéderm under the skin in those areas. The whole procedure takes only about 15 to 20 minutes, after which you can return to your normal day. You will be able to see the results of the Juvéderm almost instantly.

In most cases, results of Juvéderm last for a year, so you won’t have to repeat the treatment again in a hurry. Once you see the effects start to wear off, you can consult with Dr. Hlavacek about getting another Juvéderm treatment.
