what is a JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler that can make you look younger after a cosmetic procedure that takes just 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
How Does JUVÉDERM® Work?
Skin has two layers: The top layer is called the epidermis, and the bottom layer is the dermis. Hyaluronic acid is present in the dermis, as are other molecules like collagen. In young skin there are high concentrations of these molecules, which plump up the skin and give it a smooth appearance.
As we age, hyaluronic acid amounts decrease, which reduces the volume of the dermis. The top layer—the epidermis—starts to wrinkle and fold because the dermis doesn’t provide as much structural support.
What Can JUVÉDERM® Do for You?
JUVÉDERM can enhance your appearance in two different ways:
It can give you a more youthful look by replenishing your dermal layer
It can enhance some of your face’s natural features to give them a plumper look
Reduction of Facial Wrinkles and Folds
Facial folds — and often fine lines and wrinkles too — deepen when you talk, smile, and laugh, which makes them even more noticeable.
JUVÉDERM can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds by literally filling in the skin imperfections that cause them. This gives the skin (and your entire face) a smoother, younger, and very natural look.
JUVÉDERM can improve the appearance of mid-face volume loss, facial folds, fine wrinkles, and lines around the lips and chin and depressions around the eyes.
How Long Does a JUVÉDERM Treatment Last?
Most dermal filler treatments last for around 9 to 12 months. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®, used to give volume to your mid-face, will last 18 to 24 months.
JUVÉDERM is very similar to other dermal fillers, like Restylane®, but the JUVÉDERM formulation uses hyaluronic acid molecules in a cross-linked formation. This helps them to last longer at the site of injection and lengthens the effect of the treatment.
While Restylane treatments last six to nine months, a single JUVÉDERM treatment can last up to a full year!
