Facial fillers are simple treatments that help to reduce wrinkles in a minimally-invasive way. They are also extremely convenient. Many people choose to have their treatments performed over their lunch times. A Juvederm® treatment is very fast, allowing you to return to work or your normal activities immediately.
There are quite a few facial fillers available today with various formulations and target areas of the face. Some treat hollow areas, others treat nasolabial folds, while some target the cheeks or lips. Knowing what each filler is capable of can help to narrow down your treatment choices.
Juvederm® Facial Fillers
Juvederm® is probably the most popular type of facial filler available right now. It contains two main ingredients: hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid helps create skin that is moisturized from within, while lidocaine helps make the treatment process extremely comfortable.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that declines in both quality and quantity with the aging process. This important skin component has a special affinity with water molecules. It can attract many times its own weight in water. Skin that is fully hydrated is also more volumized and less affected by lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm® works by replacing the hyaluronic acid lost to the aging process. The result is immediately fuller skin with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles that can take a toll on your appearance.
There are quite a few advantages to undergoing treatment with Juvederm® compared to other procedures and types of fillers. For one, the product has a reputation of having a silky smooth consistency. This allows it to work very easily with your skin when it is injected.
This treatment is also minimally-invasive, meaning that very little skin damage is created by the treatment process. The more minimal the damages to the skin, the less healing time is required. This also means that there is less of a chance of complications following the procedure.
Juvederm® also offers results that appear very natural and plausible. We are not making wholesale changes to the structure of your face or your facial contours. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that this treatment helps to replace. At the end of the day, you will simply look like a younger version of yourself.
