Juvederm Explained: What You Need to Know

Facial wrinkles and creases come as a natural result of aging, but that does not necessarily mean you have to keep them. These seemingly surface-level lines actually reside in the supportive, connective skin tissue deep below the surface. This can make facial creases difficult to address.

Luckily, Juvederm provides a safe and efficient solution that drastically restores and revitalizes your skin. Typically, Juvederm sessions are brief, with near-immediate results, and require little to no recovery time. If you or someone you know is considering Juvederm, educate yourself on this rewarding procedure with some of these essentials.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that encourages collagen production in skin tissue. A major key to enjoying young looking, healthy skin is the ability to retain moisture. Able to hold 1,000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring ingredient in our skin with remarkable moisture retention.

Over time and as we age, our levels of hyaluronic acid decline, sometimes as much as 50%, resulting in wrinkled skin. Factors such as smoking or magnesium and zinc deficiencies can substantially accelerate the loss of this incredibly helpful element. Additional benefits of hyaluronic acid include minimizing unprotected sun exposure damage and limiting damage from unforgiving skincare ingredients. This organic sugar is critical to promoting a healthy skin texture and elasticity, which makes this procedure a valuable service for providing you with effortlessly vivacious skin.

Juvederm is made up of a smooth consistency gel that is injected into the deep dermis of the skin. This means that you receive treatment underneath the actual wrinkles, which can help prevent instances of these creases from forming in the future. Most commonly, Juvederm is utilized around the sides of the mouth (“parenthesis lines”), the corners of the mouth (“marionette lines”), lips, cheeks, and nose. Since it is the replenishing of an organic element, Juvederm is simply a way to complement your body’s production of these already naturally occurring sugars, rather than act as an artificial replacement.

These procedures last about 30 minutes and deliver immediate results. Typically, results last for up to one full year. It is wise to avoid alcohol, prolonged sun exposure, and strenuous physical activity for the first 24 hours after receiving treatment; you will be able to continue routine day-to-day activity right away.
