One of the main signs of aging is a loss of fullness in the face. This loss of underlying fat and collagen results is in deep folds and drooping around the mouth and jaw line. Soft tissue derma fillers like Juvederm are a safe, non-allergenic treatments that are injected under the skin to fill in wrinkles and folds and restore fullness.
Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm are made of a smooth gel form of hyaluronic acid –a natural substance you have in your own body.
These fillers are particularly good at treating those deep folds between your nose and mouth (nasolabial folds) as well as lip lines. If you are bothered by bags or hollows under your eyes, fillers can be injected into the grooves under the bags to support and camouflage the bags.
You can go back to work or resume you normal activities after the treatment. Occasionally, patients experience minor swelling or bruising which goes away after a few days.
With Juvederm, you can see the difference immediately and the effects will last for up to one year. You may want to have regular touch-up treatments after that to maintain the effects.
