Eliminate lines a wrinkles quickly and easily – with Juvederm
Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler, one of a new class of cosmetic treatments that produce immediate results with almost no downtime. Restylane and Radiesse are other examples of popular dermal fillers. Juvederm can smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, plump the skin in specific areas, and provide a more youthful appearance. It is most effective in reducing nasolabial folds, the skin folds extending from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills perform this procedure on patients from Essex and Morris counties and throughout northern New Jersey, and their before-and-after Juvederm photos illustrate the results Juvederm treatment can achieve. Approved as safe and effective by the FDA, Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that hydrates and adds volume to the skin. Juvederm is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA for people of color.
The Juvederm Cosmetic Treatment
For best results, it’s important to select a plastic surgeon with training and experience working with injectable dermal fillers. Juvederm treatments take about 15 minutes to administer, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure. However, patients are advised to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcohol for 24 hours. This dermal filler has few side effects, primarily limited to redness, swelling or itching, which typically dissipate on their own.
Results of the Juvederm injection are immediately visible, and the improvement in appearance continues over several days as any swelling or bruising subside. The results last six to nine months but can last up to a year. Touch up treatments can maintain your new youthful appearance.
