Juvederm® is many of our patients’ golden standard when it comes to dermal fillers – and for good reason! This cosmetic treatment has a variety of benefits for patients who desire to rejuvenate their appearance without undergoing major plastic surgery. Let’s go over the top five benefits that our patients agree make Juvederm® treatments a no-brainer.
1. Juvederm® is Minimally Invasive
Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler treatment that doesn’t require the use of any cutting or anesthesia. Because of this, it is considered a minimally invasive procedure. Minimally invasive procedures like Juvederm® often require little-to-no downtime or recovery period, produce no scarring and don’t take very long to perform. Juvederm® injections typically take under an hour to complete, and patients are able to return to their normal daily activities immediately following their treatment.
2. Juvederm® is Made of Hyaluronic Acid
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring sugar in the body that bonds to water to add volume to the skin. Using a dermal filler gel that’s rich in hyaluronic acid ensures that your body is simply being supplemented with a naturally-occurring substance, rather than being pumped full of man-made chemicals. The hyaluronic acid simply adds volume to the areas that have sunken or wrinkled over time.
3. Juvederm® Has Lidocaine for Comfort
All Juvederm® products are specially formulated to include lidocaine. Lidocaine is a powerful anesthetic, and when combined with Juvederm®’s dermal filler gel, it can make your treatment a more comfortable experience. Even without the use of a topical anesthetic, patients who undergo regular Juvederm® treatments report experiencing very little discomfort.
4. Juvederm® Can Be Used for Mild and Severe Wrinkles
It’s no secret that Juvederm® can be used to treat mild and moderate wrinkles around the face including laugh lines and marionette lines. But, when it comes to severe lines and wrinkles around the face, many patients feel they are stuck with strictly surgical options. In reality, special formulations of Juvederm® can smooth the appearance of severe facial wrinkles as well. Ask Dr. West if he thinks Juvederm® is a good option for you during your one-on-one consultation.
5. Juvederm® Can Plump Your Lips
Juvederm® isn’t a one-trick pony. Not only can it help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the face, but Juvederm® can also be used to add fullness into thin or sunken features as well, including your lips, cheeks and under the eyes. Gone are the days of thin lips and looking tired. Pump up the volume with the help of Juvederm®.
