It seems like the only thing that happens as we get older is that we lose things. We lose our hair, our sight, our hearing and the substance that gives our face its youthful glow. Fortunately for us, we can use hair transplants to add hair to our heads, we can wear glasses to correct our sight, use a hearing aid for our ears and use dermal fillers for our skin.
One of the go-to names for dermal fillers around the world is Juvederm. Juvederm uses the same natural compounds found within your skin to enhance the contours of your face and eliminate wrinkles and fine lines.

What is Juvederm?
Just as the back half of its name suggests, Juvederm is a dermal filler focusing on the mid-lower face. If you’ve noticed that your cheeks are beginning to show signs of sinking, or if you are concerned about the appearance of wrinkles on your chin or jawline, Juvederm could be a quick and easy way to take away years from your face.
The key ingredient to Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, or HA. This HA is the natural compound your face loses as you get older. By injecting more of this compound into the problem areas of your face, you will see an instant lift with a natural look. Your friends and family will notice the beautiful new you, but won’t notice that you had work done.
One of the biggest questions when it comes to Juvederm is what happens during and after treatment.
We understand that pain is a big point of concern. To combat this, Juvederm injections feature the anesthetic Lidocaine. With the addition of Lidocaine, all you will feel is an initial prick with minimal pain afterward.
The length of time for the procedure is also one of Juvederm’s biggest selling points. Depending on how many syringes you are having injected, treatment can be completed in as little as half an hour. Since Juvederm features no downtime, procedures can be done before work, during a lunch break or before you start your weekend errands.
The side effects of treatment are minimal and last only a short time. There may be some minor redness and swelling around the injection site, as well as some minor discomfort. It’s best not to touch and manipulate the area around the injection sites, and it’s a good idea to avoid direct sunlight after treatment.
There are plenty of options out there for dermal fillers, but Juvederm truly stands out. There’s a reason why Juvederm is one of the most trusted brands in dermal fillers, and we want to show you why. Call the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center to schedule a consultation today!
