Juvederm is one of the most popular facial fillers in the Houston area. Even so, there are many people who have questions about it and aren’t sure if it’s right for them. If this describes you, it’s time to learn whether you might benefit from Juvederm.
What Does Juvederm Treat? A Quick Overview of the Juvederm Treatment
Juvederm is a fast and convenient procedure that can help you achieve near-immediate results in terms of skin firmness, wrinkle reduction and much more.
Dr. Michael Streitmann notes, “Juvederm is a dermal filler made of modified hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. It fills in, lifts and enhances areas of the face that have changed over time due to the aging process.”
Hyaluronic acid is closely associated with all the proteins that give skin resilience and strength, including collagen – the most important connective protein.
Juvederm is used to treat severe facial wrinkles and folds.
These can include:
- Lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth;
- Smile and frown lines in the area of the mouth
- Any type of “static” fold not caused by movement.
Dr. Streitmann says, “The area around your mouth is one of the most popular areas for Juvederm. Lip Enhancement is also a popular treatment. You can lift and contour the cheek area, smooth out the wrinkles and lines around the mouth, and enhance the lips.”
Juvederm is the treatment of choice for many people because of the extreme longevity of results. You will typically notice results immediately after treatment. Because of the special properties of Juvederm, it remains active for nine to 12 months.
Unlike many other dermal fillers, Juvederm has a very smooth consistency. This helps to ensure the results you get are natural. The hyaluronic acid is suspended in a specialized gel so your body will metabolize it slowly over time.
Most patients are thrilled with their results and may seek follow-up treatment before the body has completely metabolized the Juvederm. If results are not satisfactory, the Juvederm can be effectively “deactivated” with an enzyme that helps the body break it down.
Juvederm produces the best results on wrinkles not caused by muscle movement. If you are concerned about wrinkles created by the motion of underlying muscles, ask us about Botox. Botox treats wrinkles by reducing muscle movement.
