Premier Medical Aesthetix offers Juvéderm®, the most advanced FDA-approved injectable facial dermal filler used to lift, smoothen and plump up facial skin. Along with facial expressions that causes stress on our facial skin, the gradual collapse of the skin’s collagen and elasticity due to aging is one of the main causes of wrinkles and facial lines among adults over the age of 21. This wrinkle-reducer is a better substitute for injectable collagen, which was widely-used cosmetic filler before Juvéderm® was introduced.
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is composed of a natural complex sugar called hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the human body. This product boosts the elasticity of the skin to provide a smoother and suppler appearance. It is available in three formulas. Juvéderm® Ultra, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus and Juvéderm® Voluma. They are commonly used when more lift is needed for deeper folds on the lips, cheeks, marionette lines or smile lines.
How Juvéderm® Works
A non-surgical procedure, Juvéderm® clear gel is injected fill the mid to deep dermis. This is where nerve endings, blood vessels and sweat glands are located. It adds volume and reduces facial lines, folds and wrinkles.
Here are some of the key benefits of using Juvéderm®:
- It is relatively less expensive compared to other cosmetic fillers
- It produces results instantly
- It gives patients a more natural look
- Allergic reactions rarely happen with Juvéderm® because hyaluronic acid is human-based
- It is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that lasts up to one year
What to Expect
There is minimal downtime after Juvéderm® treatment. You should avoid any physical activities and excessive sunlight or heat exposure for the first 24 hours after your treatment. Temporary reactions to the injections like redness, swelling, and pain may also occur after the procedure. These reactions usually clear up within a week or less. You should be able to see results immediately, which can last for up to a year.
