Juvederm replaces the skin’s volume in a way so subtle that everyone will notice, but no one will know. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrating sugar found in the skin, which binds and absorbs water, keeping it refreshed, while also adding volume. This substance stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, giving your face a firmer, more youthful look. Juvederm is also used to plump lips, which also lose fat and internal shape with normal aging.
Dr. Blaine will use a fine needle to inject Juvederm under your skin, filling the tissue that has grown soft, and eliminating the wrinkles from your face. Juvederm may also be used to improve the fullness in your cheekbones or lips, giving them a more defined look.
Juvederm is not for you if you have history of multiple severe allergies or severe allergic reactions to anaphylaxis, or if you are allergic to the proteins (gram-positive bacterial proteins) used to make the hyaluronic acid (HA) in these products. Do not use this product if you are allergic to lidocaine.
All hyaluronic acid facial filler products are eventually absorbed by the body, usually within 6-12 months. Therefore, patients undergo repeated injections to maintain the younger look. If you are interested in juvederm, or want to learn more about the procedure, feel free to call us at 631-237-3392.
