If you're searching for the best way to reverse the signs of natural aging, or to smooth uneven skin contours, dermal fillers have revolutionized today's medical approach. Injectable treatments offer an enticing alternative to more invasive surgical procedures and can correct asymmetry, reduce bags and circles under the eyes, improve acne scars and repair sun-damaged skin.
As your skin is exposed to the sun and other environmental pollutants, your cells gradually begin to dehydrate and lose hyaluronic acid. In turn, that can cause collagen and other fibers to lose their elasticity and structure. Noticeable results for improving such conditions can often be attained in less than an hour with JUVÉDERM® facial treatments designed to smooth facial contours and revitalize dehydrated skin.
Our medical providers can't stop the natural process of aging, but using the latest facial fillers, they can turn back the clock by restoring your natural, more youthful look. Juvederm injections can smooth fine facial lines by instantly adding volume to your skin. In addition, the long-lasting hyaluronic gel filler promotes your body's natural production of collagen for months following a single treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvederm Injections?
Good candidates for Juvederm injectable gel treatments include men and women who seek to correct volume deficiencies in the skin and improve fine lines, wrinkles and folds. By adding volume to areas impacted by sagging epidermis or where additional volume is needed for facial symmetry, injectable gels can revitalize your look and add balance to your facial features. Plus, Juvederm has been proven safe and effective in patients of all skin types and colors.
Are Juvederm Treatments Safe?
Yes. JUVÉDERM® products are FDA-approved as injectable treatments for adding volume to the face, replenishing hydration to the skin, and reducing wrinkles and folds for conditions such as laugh lines, marionette lines or parenthesis folds. The gel-like dermal filler is made of a substance that is naturally occurring in the human body, so there is no concern for allergenic reactions. Since general anesthesia is not required, only a skin-numbing agent is used during the aesthetic procedure.
What Are the Side Effects in Using Injectable Fillers?
Generally speaking, dermal fillers are natural substances that are absorbed by the body, so there are few side effects associated with most injectables. Some patients have experienced allergic reactions to collagen but this is not a problem when hyaluronic acid-based or fat are used to add volume. Risks not directly related to allergies can include infection or abscesses, skin peeling, swelling and scarring. But, reports of these problems are very rare. Typically, minor swelling, redness or soreness are the most serious complaints and these subside in a couple of days following a treatment.
