Hyaluronic acid (HA) is currently one of the most popular ingredients in anti-aging products. It’s commonly found in lotions, creams, and anti-wrinkle serums due its tremendous power. This moisture-binding substance is the primary ingredient in JUVEDERM®, a cosmetic injectable product that’s earned its fame for effectiveness, versatility, and convenience, among other benefits. For many with aging facial skin, thin or uneven lips, or other issues that they’re unhappy with, JUVEDERM® is the ultimate filler and volumizer.
How JUVEDERM® Works
JUVEDERM® can be used in a very broad range of cosmetic applications. It is perfect for filling in static wrinkles, restoring volume, enhancing features, and accomplishing much more. Beyond providing a fast-acting and effective solution to a slew of common age-related issues, JUVEDERM® is also the preferred injectable for many non-surgical lip enhancement procedures.
Since this solution is largely comprised of hyaluronic acid, when it is injected into the skin, it instantly binds to nearby cells. Not only does HA attract water molecules to the treatment area, but it also retains them. This creates the added fullness that patients are seeking while additionally hydrating the treatment area at every level.
Depending on the situation, the results of this treatment may last for up to two years. After this time, the body will have recognized, broken down, and eliminated the solution. The good news is that it’s safe to have these injections repeated as needed if you’d like to maintain the results.
A Simple, Convenient Treatment
JUVEDERM® treatments are convenient in a lot of ways. To start, most treatment sessions take just minutes to carry out. And there is absolutely no surgery involved. As such, little to no downtime is required. Moreover, HA is a naturally-occurring acid, so JUVEDERM® is not likely to cause adverse or allergic reactions. For those seeking to volumize and enhance areas that might otherwise require surgical treatments, JUVEDERM® offers an incredibly effective, non-surgical alternative.
