JUVÉDERM® is one of the most effective skin plumping and smoothing dermal fillers on the market. It can be used to add volume to areas of the face, and it can be used to augment the lips. JUVÉDERM® is quite versatile as a dermal filler because it comes in various thicknesses.
This is an acid-based filler that works by drawing in and holding moisture in place. As we continue to age, our skin doesn’t contain as much hyaluronic acid as it did when we were younger. This type of gel-based injectable filler works like magic to restore a smoother, more taut and wrinkle-free skin surface. Below, we outline a few of the areas of skin surface that can be successfully treated with this popular injectable filler.
Small creases can form along the sides of the nose, and these create an unwanted shadow effect. Nasolabial folds typically appear around our 30s and 40s, and the creases can really detract from our appearance. When injected into and beneath the skin layers on the sides of the nose, JUVÉDERM® will add volume and smooth away the creases.
It’s also effective for addressing concerns about the contours of the jawline. So long as there isn’t a great deal of sagging due to fat buildup, this injectable can help round out the contours and bring about a more youthful appearance to the lower areas of the face.
Thinning lips can give us a strained, tired, or frustrated look. This problem is often encountered in our middle-age years. The lips also become more wrinkled, and the upper boundary straightens and loses its nice swoop shape. When an acid-based filler such as JUVÉDERM® is used as a filler gel in the lip tissue, the lips swell slightly and become fuller.
About Acid-Based Fillers
These gels contain hyaluronic acid particles. The acid is a type of sugar substance that binds with water molecules. Once injected, the gel also acts as a sort of molding agent. The plumping and smoothing effects begin immediately. Most of our clients notice improvement within 24 hours.
The effect lasts for up to two years. Repeat injections are simple to perform. This cosmetic fix requires no recovery or downtime for the client. We sometimes suggest combining dermal fillers with other treatments for enhanced results.
