Juvederm is a cosmetic injectable that combats wrinkles and folds, restores volume, improves facial symmetry, lifts cheeks and midface, and enhances lip size, shape, and definition.
Many women and men falsely believe that they must either accept signs of aging or undergo an invasive facelift, with a lengthy recovery, to restore a youthful appearance.
But there is another option that they should consider.
If you are looking for a safe, effective, and nonsurgical way to improve the way that you look and feel, continue reading for a Juvederm Maryland overview.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that seeks to restore volume and reverse signs of aging. It’s performed in office and typically takes between 15-60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated.
Best of all, it produces immediate plumping and hydrating effects and requires zero downtime.
How Does it Work?
Juvederm is comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that’s naturally produced by the body. When injected into soft tissue, hyaluronic acid attracts and holds water to instantly volumize skin and fill-in lines, wrinkles, and hollows.
What Are the Different Types of Juvederm Fillers?
Juvederm is manufactured by Allergan and includes a family of hyaluronic acid fillers.
Every injectable product contains hyaluronic acid that is uniquely bonded and concentrated. As a result, each filler is meant to be injected in different areas of the face and at different depths to correct specific concerns.
Voluma XC is designed to restore volume and lift cheeks and the midface.
Juvederm XC and Vollure XC are indicated for the treatment of skin laxity, moderate to severe wrinkles, and smile lines.
Ultra XC and Volbella XC can be used to augment lips or subtly enhance lip appearance.
What Are the Possible Risks and Side Effects?
When performed by a board-certified dermatologist and leading injector like Dr. Verghese, Juvederm is extremely safe and effective.
But as with any cosmetic treatment, there are possible side effects and risks that patients should be aware of. These include mild and temporary swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, lumps or bumps, minor pain, and itching.
In most cases, issues resolve on their own in several days to weeks.
