Find out how Juvederm can make you look younger.
Ready to give your skin the more radiant, youthful boast it needs before the holiday season? You may think you don’t have time left butyour Morristown, NJ dermatologists have the quick cosmetic option you’ve been looking for.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm contains a special gel made from hyaluronic acid that when injected into the mid to deep layers of the skin creates volume and fullness to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds to create a more youthful appearance.
What is hyaluronic acid (HA)?
This acid is naturally occurring in your skin. As you get older you start to lose this substance, which in turn starts to breakdown the original volume and shape of your skin to cause wrinkles and folds. The purpose of Juvederm is to reapply this substance back into the skin to help create a younger-looking appearance.
What cosmetic issues can Juvederm address?
Juvederm is a great option for those patients in Morristown, NJ who are looking to treat static wrinkles, which develop as a result of a loss of hyaluronic acid and collagen. Juvederm is FDA-approved to treat nasolabial folds, or “marionette lines” but can also treat the lips, cheeks, forehead, nose and jawline.
What makes Juvederm different from other injectables like Botox?
Unlike other dermal fillers Juvederm uses a naturally occurring substance that is already found in the skin. While Botox blocks the nerve signals that causes muscles to contract and create wrinkles Juvederm fills these deep set wrinkles to restore volume and shape.
What should I expect when I come into your Morristown, NJ office for treatment?
This procedure is simple and can take up to a half hour to complete. Once we discuss your goals for treatment we will pinpoint the areas that we will need to inject. Then we will inject a series of thin dermal needles into the skin. How deep we need to inject the needles will depend on the severity of the wrinkles and folds we are correcting. These areas will be numbed prior to treatment to reduce any discomfort.
How long will my results last?
What makes Juvederm a great cosmetic treatment is that results are instantaneous and long lasting. Results usually last about eight to ten months before requiring another session to maintain these results.
Am I a good candidate for Juvederm?
Many patients looking to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds are ideal candidates for Juvederm. Those who have severe allergies or have had allergic reactions in the past may not be right for this treatment.
