If you’ve been noticing age lines and wrinkles that seem like they’re only deepening as the years go by, it may be time to try Juvederm. This injectable dermal filler is an excellent option for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Patients looking for a trusted provider of Juvederm in Southbury should consider board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sunny Waitze at Pomperaug Plastic Surgery.
The Science Behind Juvederm
The aging process involves many natural biological changes, including a decline in the production of hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally found in the skin tissues, where it provides volume and moisture. As the production rate declines, so does the skin’s volume.
Juvederm is a filler made of synthetic hyaluronic acid in a smooth gel form. Injections of this dermal filler product in the mid to deep dermal layers restore lost hyaluronic acid, smoothing away wrinkles.
Am I a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Juvederm is an ideal treatment option for patients who are experiencing moderate to deep wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lipstick lines, and parentheses lines. It can also be used as a lip filler to volumize thin lips.
A specific type of Juvederm called Voluma XC is an ideal treatment option for gaunt cheeks. This is another treatment option that we offer at our office.
Crow’s feet around the eyes, vertical brow lines, and other types of shallow wrinkles are typically better treated using Botox, another injectable option that we provide.
If you have any active skin infections in the treatment region, it is best to resolve these before considering Juvederm injections.
The Treatment Process
The Juvederm treatment process typically only takes around fifteen minutes to complete. During treatment, injections are delivered to the chosen treatment areas. The product contains a local anesthetic called lidocaine, which numbs the area to pain or discomfort.
No downtime will be needed following a Juvederm treatment, and no recovery process will be required. Instead, you will be able to get right back to your daily schedule. Many patients choose to get this treatment done during a lunch break at work.
Bruising and swelling may be present in the treatment area but will quickly fade. Avoid extreme hot or cold temperatures and sun overexposure, and make sure to wear proper sunscreen.
The product’s results can be seen for around six to twelve months after the date of treatment. At this time, it will be possible to get a maintenance treatment in order to preserve your results.
How Much Does Juvederm Cost?
The exact price of Juvederm depends on the medical facility you choose for your treatment, along with various other factors. Additionally, CareCredit financing is available to help with the cost of many procedures. Find out more about CareCredit by inquiring during a consultation.
