How Juvederm ® works?
The injection of Juvederm into folds and wrinkles creates volume and fullness, and it also enhances the moisture content of the skin. This combination of effects fills and softens the injected lines, folds, and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful look.
What should I expect from a Juvederm ® treatment?
A Juvederm treatment begins with a complete examination of the face to determine areas where increased fullness would improve facial appearance. Once this planning is completed, the Juvéderm treatment can begin.
A series of injections of small quantities of Juvederm, along with an anesthetic for comfort, are placed into the skin. It is preferable to put smaller amounts of Juvéderm into a larger number of injection sites because the final result is more natural looking.
How long does Juvederm ® last?
Just like natural hyaluronic acid, synthetic hyaluronic acid will gradually break down and be absorbed by the body once it is injected into the skin. Depending on the area treated, your skin, and the injection technique, results after a Juvederm treatment will last 6 to 9 months. In some cases duration of the effects can be a bit shorter or longer. To maintain the initial results, repeat treatments will be necessary. Most people have 2 treatments per year.
