Juvederm: Is it Right for You?
Age, they say, is accompanied by wisdom. It also tends to come with deepening lines in our faces, a loss of elasticity in our skin, hollows under our eyes, and increasingly visible acne scars. Many people turn to simple cosmetic procedures to combat these less-than-appealing side effects of aging.
We are here to provide you with the information that will help you make an educated decision when it comes to your skin. Below, you will find an overview of Juvederm to help you decide if it is right for you!
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved filler, used to smooth mild to moderate facial lines, plump up lips, and reduce acne scarring. It can also be used to fill under-eye hollows, enhance cheek volume, and even reduce wrinkles on the hands.
How is Juvederm different from Botox?
Although Botox and Juvederm are both very popular products for reducing wrinkles, they are very different products.
Botox injections paralyze the muscles under the wrinkles, thereby relaxing the muscle and removing the wrinkles above it.
Juvederm is a filler that plumps out the area under the wrinkles to create a smooth surface on the skin above it.
Juvederm causes less puffiness for the first few days after a treatment and is commonly considered slightly smoother. Boiano Dental in the Eastchester and Bronx offices, we have been providing these treatments since 2004.
What is treatment like?
Most treatment sessions only take about 15 minutes. As with all dermal fillers, Juvederm is injected into the treatment area with an extremely fine needle, so discomfort is usually minimal.
How long does it take to work?
The effects of Juvederm are typically visible immediately, but it can take a few days to “settle into” its final shape.
How long will it last?
Depending on the area treated and your individual skin type, Juvederm will typically last about 4-6 months.
