Magic Of Juvederm
The active ingredient of Juvederm is hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid works by adding volume to the facial tissues being targeted. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally found substance in the human body. It stimulates the production of collagen that plumps the skin. As we age, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen naturally decreases. With a decrease in hyaluronic acid and collagen production it leads to sagging and wrinkling of the skin.
During the Juvederm procedure, your doctor will then inject Juvederm into the target area that needs volume. They will also lightly massage the area. This will ensure an even distribution and reduce the chance of swelling following injection. The entire procedure usually takes between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the amount of area treated on the face.
Juvederm injections contain a small amount of the anesthetic lidocaine. This will help make the injection of Juvederm dermal fillers more comfortable for you during the procedure and afterwards.
Recovery time is generally very quick. However, people are advised to avoid strenuous physical activity, exposure to the sun, wearing makeup, and drinking alcohol for about 24 hours following Juvederm treatment.
Most patients can see the effects of Juvederm right away. There may be some swelling following Juvederm application whicj may mask results until swelling goes down. Results from Juvederm treatment typically lasts between 3-6 months and sometimes longer depending on the area being treated. Current research has shown that hyaluronic acid injections may stimulate collagen production, leading to fresher-looking skin over the long term.
