What is It?
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that can provide patients with long-term correction to wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds. Approved for cosmetic use in 2006, this product has helped countless patients achieve beautiful, youthful-looking skin. At Torrey Pines Dermatology, we offer Juvederm® Ultra Plus, which can provide patients with six to twelve months of correction to wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss.
How does it Work?
Juvederm® products are formulated with a substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, where it helps bring volume and fullness to the skin. Unfortunately, the amount of hyaluronic acid present in the skin begins to decline as individuals get older, making them more likely to develop wrinkles and fine lines. Juvederm® Ultra Plus works to correct these aesthetic concerns by replacing lost hyaluronic acid and infusing the skin with additional volume, fullness, and definition. It is better suited for filling in fine lines and wrinkles in deeper areas, like the jowls and nasolabial folds.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
Each injection session typically takes no more than 20 minutes to complete. Because Juvederm® products are indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic, they are often more comfortable to receive similar injectable products. While side effects like redness, pain, tenderness, bruising, itching, and swelling are common, these typically subside within a few days of receiving treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for this Injectable?
Nearly any patient interested in improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is a potential candidate for Juvederm®. Before undergoing treatment, interested patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff. During this appointment, one of our aesthetic professionals will take into account the patient’s medical history and current state of health to decide if this treatment is right for them.
