As people age they naturally begin to get wrinkles and folds all over their body. For years many people have sought out plastic surgery to correct these wrinkles and folds. Plastic surgery has been a widely successful field of medicine for years. In addition to plastic surgery there are many different creams and moisturizers available. The cosmetic industry has spent years doing research on different products to help get rid of wrinkles and folds without plastic surgery. One of the new alternatives to plastic surgery is Juvederm.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an excellent alternative to plastic surgery. Juvederm is an injectable gel filler that provides a non-invasive and non-surgical way to correct wrinkles and folds. It can be used on your cheeks, nose, mouth and lips. Juvederm has been approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency. It is injected with a very thin needle to enhance and add volume to different areas of the face. Patients help determine injection sites before surgery. The gel contains hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the human body. The gel smooths wrinkles and folds by giving your skin volume and hydration.
Juvederm for All Skin Types
Not all skin types and skin problems have been good fits for injectable fillers in the past. Some injectable fillers have previously caused problems for dark-skinned people. Juvederm has been proven safe and effective for people of color. Juvederm is also designed to help patients that have moderate skin ailments.
Juvederm for Acne Scars
Not only can Juvederm help with deep wrinkles and fold, it can also help combat scars left by acne. If you suffered from acne in years past the scars left can cause serious shame. Juvederm can help you get rid of the scars caused by acne and help you regain your self-confidence.
How Long Does Juvederm Last
While plastic surgery can take large amounts of time Juvederm injections can take 15 to 20 minutes. The gel is injected into the area you have chosen for treatment. After plastic surgery there is often downtime required for healing. With Juvederm you can return to your normal activities directly after treatment. Many people want to know how long Juvederm will last. The answer will depend on the strength of the treatment and your personal physical makeup. Typically it will last six months to one year. Once Juvederm enters your body the gel will eventually be absorbed by your body. The gel will appear naturally in your body.
