Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Juvederm® Treatment in League City, TX
What Is Juvederm®?
One of the many dermal filler treatments on the market, Juvederm® delivers hyaluronic acid to skin cells deep beneath the skin’s surface. Hyaluronic acid helps these cells retain their moisture balance to smooth and soften the skin. Juvederm® does not directly remove fine lines and wrinkles, but increases volume and fullness so that they naturally disappear.
The hyaluronic acid found in Juvederm® is very much like the hyaluronic acid produced by your own body, but in decreasing amounts as you grow older. It naturally binds with water, improving the hydration of your skin and helping it regain some of the volume that may have been lost due to aging. Juvederm® is a safe and effective treatment for eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, and creases around the nose and mouth. It is safely and easily absorbed by the body, ensuring few if any complications.
Benefits of Juvederm® Treatments
Juvederm® is known for being a very safe and effective dermal filler that can easily be injected by a physician in his or her office. Known as a “lunch hour treatment”, Juvederm® effectively eliminates certain signs of aging in the skin, and is a popular treatment because of its numerous benefits that include:
- Allowing patients to look younger without the need for surgery
- Providing long-lasting results that can be noticed for up to 12 months
- Eliminating the need for downtime or a recovery period
- The fact that it contains no synthetic ingredients, thereby reducing the odds of a reaction
How Are Juvederm® Treatments Administered?
The area where Juvederm® is to be administered will be cleansed, and then the solution will be administered using a very thin needle. Even though the gel-like product has a very smooth consistency, more than one injection could be needed to deliver consistently, even results. Juvederm® contains lidocaine, an effective numbing agent, meaning that you will notice only slight discomfort. However, if you have a low pain tolerance, a topical anesthetic could be applied prior to the injection.
The entire procedure can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes from start to finish. Your results will be noticeable immediately.
