In the spirit of back to school season, we’re sharing a page from our text book to help you better understand the wonderful, non-surgical benefits of a treatment known as Juvederm. We’ve written before about the difference between dermal fillers and Botox. They can both help transform your look in different ways. Here’s a few things you should know about the FDA approved dermal filler Juvederm.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is one of the top selling hyaluronic acid filler lines in the US. The Juvederm family of products includes Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, Ultra and Ultra Plus. They are all made from Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring product in the body that attracts water and restores volume. These fillers have different viscosities and are used on different parts of the face to create a natural appearance and restore proportions. Correction of volume loss results in a younger looking, more youthful appearance.

What’s The Procedure Like?

Dr. Shternfeld will perform a medical history and provide a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your aesthetic areas of concern. The procedure itself can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour depending on your needs. Dr.Shternfeld uses the advanced cannula technique to inject, which increases safety and reduces bruising.

When Will I See Results? You will see immediate improvement after the procedure. Maximum results can be seen 2 weeks or so after the injections, once the filler settles and incorporates into the body. Results can last 6 to18 months depending on the area treated and individual metabolism.

What Can Juvederm Treat?

Juvederm is a great treatment option for plumping lips, cheek volume loss, chin augmentation, as well as treating nasolabial folds and lines around the mouth. It’s very effective in getting ride of superficial lines and smoothing out wrinkles for a glowing, youthful appearance. To be able to get the best experience and results out of Juvederm, it’s important to work with a qualified professional.
