Juvederm Dermal Filler
Juvederm cosmetic injection dermal filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. Juvederm cosmetic injection dermal filler is used to fill fine lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm restores lost volume and fullness, hydrating the skin and smoothing away facial wrinkles.
As the body ages it loses the ability to produce hyaluronic acid and as a result skin wrinkles and loses its fullness. Juvederm cosmetic injection dermal filler replenishes lost hyaluronic acid and returns your skin to a more youthful appearance. Juvederm is
a popular choice to enhance lips, eliminate facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds from your nose to the corner of the mouth.
Approved by the FDA in 2006, Juvederm cosmetic injections have risen up the ranks of dermal filler facial rejuvenation treatments both for its success in removing wrinkles but for lip augmentation. Juvederm cosmetic injection dermal filler is manufactured by Allergan, the makers of BOTOX Cosmetic Injections. Juvederm lasts longer than Botox and typically lasts up to 6 months while Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus cosmetic injections can last up to one year.
JUVEDERM COSMETIC INJECTION PROCEDURE
Juvederm comes packed in a sterile syringe, ready to be administered. The areas to be injected are numbed with a topical anesthetic cream prior to treatment, for the comfort of the patient. Juvederm injections are administered by Dr. Epstein at his Miami Beach office and injections can take 15 to 30 minutes.
Dr. Epstein injects Juvederm directly into the skin using an ultrafine needle for minimum discomfort. A topical numbing cream or locally-injected anesthetic cream may be used. Once the treated area is numbed, Juvederm is injected directly into the skin slowly and safely in small amounts. The gel produces volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. You can expect to see results immediately. Juvederm injections can be combined with other plastic surgical procedures.
BENEFITS OF JUVEDERM
The benefits of using Juvederm cosmetic injection dermal filler is that it provides a smoother, more natural-looking appearance than other dermal fillers.
