Juvederm is an injectable filler that plumps up facial skin, smoothes over wrinkles, and can augment lips and cheeks. It’s fast becoming the ‘next big thing’ in facial enhancements. Here are the basics you need to know:
- Juvederm is hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is a natural chemical in the body. It absorbs water to help create the extracellular matrix, a gel-like substance that protects and strengthens cells from the outside. The extracellular matrix is a big part of how our lips, cheeks, and forehead stay strong.
Juvederm simply adds more hyaluronic acid. The body accepts this new acid, absorbing it slowly and safely.
- Juvederm feels natural, because it is natural
When Juvederm is first injected, it feels a little hard. However, after a few days, it will be incorporated into the extracellular matrix. It absorbs water and feels just like normal tissue, just with more strength and volume.
- Juvederm does not require allergy tests
No humans have been found to be allergic to anything in Juvederm. Unlike other fillers, you don’t need to get tested.
- Juvederm has few risks
Juvederm is natural and will always be absorbed and metabolized by the body, given time. The injection is sterile and non-invasive.. A small number of people experience rashes, small red bumps, or swelling. These tend to disappear within seven days. These bumps are more common in people with thin skin.
- Juvederm is non-surgical
Juvederm can be injected by physicians as well as by trained nurse injectors. . It does not require a hospital stay, and the recovery period usually lasts only a few days.
- Juvederm is not permanent
Juvederm is not a facelift. It will last from 6 months to 2 years before absorbed and broken down by the body.
- Juvedermis affordable
Juvederm treatment costs can vary from clinic to clinic, but are extremely reasonable in price compared to similar solutions to wrinkles.
- Juvederm is the future
Juvederm is talked about more and more in cosmetic enhancement circles. Compared to surgery, it’s extremely cheap and safe. Due to its non-invasive nature, it requires far fewer appointments and far less equipment. More doctors are recommending it, more practitioners are using it, and more funding is improving it. Soon, the best enhancement procedure on the market will be even better.
