Everyone develops lines and wrinkles as they get older, and some people consider them just another unwelcome reminder of the aging process. Juvederm® is an effective filler that is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a compound that is naturally produced by our bodies, but the production does decrease with age. This treatment is simple and straightforward and requires little to no downtime. If you are tired of lines and wrinkles on your face, now is the time to contact Murphy Plastic Surgery to set up your consultation; you’ll be glad you did!
How Does Juvederm® Work?
This dermal filler utilizes hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by the body. As we age, the production of compounds such as hyaluronic acid and collagen decrease, which can have an aging effect on our appearance. Hyaluronic acid molecules effectively bond with moisture and help to plump up the skin and the cells under the dermis. The filler has the added benefit of helping to spur further production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, which helps the skin’s appearance continue to improve over time. This filler is non-allergenic and causes little to no discomfort or side effects. Treatment sessions typically last just minutes, and you can go back to your normal daily routine as soon as you leave the office.
How Often Will I Need Juvederm® Treatments?
While everyone’s situation and personal preferences are different, you can expect the results from your Juvederm® treatment to last from about six months to a year. Many patients will often have a mini treatment session in between their regular appointments in order to maintain the new and youthful look that they’ve grown accustomed to. Discuss your appearance goals with the team and inform them of your aesthetic goals.
