Wrinkles, fine lines, and loose, sagging skin are common signs of aging that can make you look and feel older than your true years. Juvederm is an injectable filler that can reduce common signs of aging and restore volume and shape to your features.
Are you an ideal candidate for Juvederm? Here’s a look at what Juvederm is, how it works, and where you can go to turn back the clock and achieve smoother, younger-looking skin.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler that restores volume and plumpness to your facial features. Juvederm fillers can provide you with smoother, more youthful-looking skin, and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. It comes in many formulas—each is designed to treat specific areas of the face. Some formulas can plump lips, while others can smooth lines and produce cheek contouring effects.
If you’re not sure which Juvederm filler is right for you, an aesthetician or doctor can perform an evaluation, discuss what you hope to accomplish with treatment, and make the best recommendation based on your unique aesthetic goals.
Juvederm is intended for use on the face and can treat the cheeks, lips, and areas around the nose and mouth. These cosmetic injectables and facial fillers can address the following signs of aging:
Fine lines and wrinkles, including laugh lines and crow’s feet
Sagging or drooping jawline
Shadows below the lower eyelids
Juvederm is ideal for nearly anyone who feels as though aging, smoking, and other environmental factors have taken a toll on their face and appearance. Juvederm can be used by any woman or man over the age of 21, though these injections are most commonly used by adults aged 40 or older who have already started to show signs of aging.
Ideal candidates for Juvederm are those who do not smoke since smoking can slow the healing process and negate the effects of dermal filler treatment. Candidates must be in good physical health and have realistic expectations about what Juvederm can and cannot accomplish. Candidates must also be committed to maintaining healthy skin with quality skincare products, healthful foods, and regular exercise.
The results of Juvederm may last six to 12 months or longer—a time frame that will vary for each patient based on factors such as the areas of the face being treated, lifestyle behaviors, health status, and sun exposure. Certain behaviors can often prolong the effects of Juvederm; these include drinking plenty of water to maintain skin hydration and plumpness, avoiding excess sun exposure to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and eating lots of fruits and vegetables to provide the skin with plenty of vitamins and nutrients.
Your aesthetician and doctor will also recommend skincare products that can extend the results of your Juvederm fillers, such as creams and lotions that contain hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and green tea extracts.
