At Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery, we have plenty of fantastic options for those who would like to treat wrinkles around the mouth, lips or mid cheek areas, or reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds (“smile lines”). One of our favorite fillers is Juvederm.
Juvederm is the first injectable gel approved by the FDA to correct moderate to severe folds and wrinkles and to add volume to the cheek area. It is perfect for those who would like to avoid surgical procedures. If that doesn’t motivate you to try it, here are five more great reasons.
It Contains Hyaluronic Acid
The primary ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. As you age you start to lose HA, causing your skin to lose volume.
It Works for Both Mild and Severe Folds and Wrinkles
While many fillers work well for mild OR severe wrinkles, Juvederm can smooth mild as well as severe facial wrinkles instantly. Many treatments are not overly effective for nasolabial folds, the two skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Juvederm is an ideal noninvasive treatment for nasolabial folds.
It Can Plump Your Lips
Whether you’ve noticed your lips thinning with age or simply want a set of luscious celebrity lips, Juvederm can conveniently plump your lips for a full, natural appearance. For those who want to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines, it can correct them for up to one year.
It’s a “Lunchtime” Procedure
Juvederm is considered a “lunchtime” procedure because it’s relatively quick and easy to perform, making it convenient to schedule during your lunch break. It is ideal for those who have busy schedules. Most people can expect to return to work or other normal daily activities immediately after their appointment, which typically lasts less than 20 minutes. Although a needle is used to inject the hyaluronic acid into the face, patients experience minimal discomfort or swelling with our expertly trained team.
Juvederm Results Can Be Long-Lasting
Juvederm may be considered a temporary solution to fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of facial volume, but it provides a subtle yet noticeable lift that can last for months and even years with optimal treatment. Many people find that scheduling regular appointments for this simple and convenient procedure, spaced several months apart, offers a successful replacement to more invasive procedures.
