Are you struggling with the signs of aging? Maybe you feel like it’s losing its fullness as you age. New England Laser Lipo, a cosmetic treatment center in Shrewsbury, MA, offers Juvederm® to help. What is Juvederm? Is it the right treatment for you?
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler used to make sure your skin is hydrated and full. It helps smooth out any wrinkles that are in your skin. This type of filler is normally soft and similar to gel. It gives Juvederm a very natural look when it’s used. This filler is done through an injection. The filler formula is made with lidocaine, a numbing medicine that can make the injection process smooth and easy.
Hyaluronic acid is something that’s already found in the body naturally. It’s used as an internal moisturizer. However, as we get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid that we have lessens. The loss of this leads to wrinkles and lines, particularly around the nose, mouth, and eyes. This is where that loss of fullness comes from.
What is the Juvederm Procedure Process?
The Juvederm process is very simple. The injection only takes about 15 minutes at our Shrewsbury, MA cosmetic treatment center. Since it has that numbing medication in it, the injection is painless and smooth. Afterward, you don’t really have any recovery time. Since hyaluronic acid is something that’s naturally found in the body, there are very rarely any bad reactions you have to worry about.
As with any injection, there are some side effects that you may experience. The injection site may be tender, swollen, and a bit bruised temporarily. Redness, firmness, and bumps at the injection site are also possible. These symptoms are usually very mild and should be gone in about a week.
Juvederm’s effects are temporary. They should last for about half a year to a year. After this stretch of time, the body naturally absorbs the hyaluronic acid. After Juvederm is injected, you should see positive results from it almost instantly. If the effects start fading earlier than expected, touch-ups are available so you can get the results you expect.
Is Juvederm Right for Me?
This is something Dr. Willis can discuss with you. Since this is a natural type of filler, it’s usually okay for virtually everyone. However, if you have concerns, Dr. Willis can do an evaluation to see the likelihood of you having issues or reactions to the material.
This is a promising option to minimize the wrinkles in your face and get the smoothness that you want. Call us today or request a complimentary consultation to see if Juvederm is the way for you to go!
