The aesthetics industry has seen a lot of advancements in the past few years. These advancements have made it easier than ever to reduce signs of aging, making it also affordable and accessible to every person.
The Juvedermis one of the latest dermal fillers that can help reverse signs of aging.
Signs of aging are normal and are not a sign of any disease. It is the most common age-related condition, and it affects everyone in some way or the other. However, people don’t like to think about aging.
Aging causes signs of aging on our skin. It starts with fine lines and wrinkles, and then it progresses to age spots and uneven pigmentation, then we see dark circles under eyes, sagging skin, and thinning skin. With Juvederm, we can reduce those signs make you look youthful again.
So what is Juvederm, how does it work, and how long does it take to work?
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler used to create a natural-looking volume and fullness in the lips. It can also smooth out wrinkles in the skin and improve facial contours.
Allergan originally developed it in the 1980s, but it wasn’t until the 2000s that it became popular with Hollywood celebrities due to its ability to restore volume and contour lines.
It comes in two different formulas—the original formula was released in 2003, and the new formula was released in 2013. The original formula has been around for years and is still popular today. However, the new procedure has some features that make it more appealing than its predecessor.
The main difference between these formulas is their chemical composition and their work on skin cells. The new formula contains hyaluronic acid, but the original does not include this ingredient. This allows for a more natural-looking result with minor swelling or bruising compared to the older version of Juvederm.
As you can see, they are continuously improving the product to enhance its features.
A Dermal Filler
As you’ve heard, Juvederm is a dermal filler cosmetic treatment, but what are dermal fillers exactly?
Dermal fillers are injectable materials used to fill out the skin. They are typically used in areas with a loss of volume and volume, such as the cheeks, lips, and chin.
They can also correct age-related facial changes like deep nasolabial folds or shallow nasolabial folds. Most dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, collagen, or silicone gel materials.
How Does It Work?
When it comes to skin, aging can be a big problem. The skin starts to thin and lose elasticity, which leads to wrinkles, dryness, and other issues.
So to reverse signs of aging, you have to find a way to plump the skin back right up—sort of like, pumping air in a tire to bulge it. Your solution to that is by using Juvederm.
Fixing Deep Skin Problems
Skincare products only target the skin’s surface and cannot penetrate deep into the skin to do anything. There’s always an inherent limit, and they can’t do anything about it.
If you want to reduce signs of aging, you have to go deep into the skin and address what causes the signs of aging in the first place. You can only do that through dermal fillers.
Of course, there are many causes of aging, but Juvederm addresses it by adding hyaluronic formula into your skin. This boosts your collagen production, giving you a youthful and vibrant look.
How Hyaluronic Acid Plumps The Skin
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. It is a chemical compound that helps retain moisture and lubricate the skin. This is why it has been used for centuries as a topical treatment for burns, scars, and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid has been used as filler material in dermal fillers because it provides volume, hydration, and elasticity to the skin. It also stimulates collagen production, making it an excellent choice for filling wrinkles and other signs of aging.
The main reason why hyaluronic acid is one of the most commonly used ingredients in dermal fillers is that it can provide volume without adding bulk or weight to the skin.
What Can You Expect In A Juvederm Treatment?
Juvederm is a quick and easy treatment that takes just a few injections. The treatment can be used for both men and women, but it’s most commonly used on women to enhance their lips or cheeks with fuller-looking skin.
However, just like in any other treatment, you’ll have to take a few steps first.
Before Getting Juvederm
Before getting a Juvederm treatment, you may first need a minor health examination. Juvederm has a unique formula to which you may be allergic too. Your provider is just making sure that nothing will go wrong as you go through the treatment.
Also, your provider will apply some topical anesthetics before applying the Juvederm. Topical anesthetics are topical creams, sprays, or gels that contain a local anesthetic agent. They work by numbing the skin and preventing pain during injection.
During The Treatment
It doesn’t take much time for Juvederm treatment. The filler can be injected into a few areas of the face.
After the first few injections, you will notice that the effects of Juvederm last for a few days. This is because the new collagen is injected into your skin, and it takes time for it to form and settle in. It’s just plump because it’s been recently injected, not the formula working its magic yet.
How Long Does Juvederm Take To Work?
It will take at least two weeks before the collagen builds up and plump the skin. Just be patient, and you will see the results changing your facial features drastically for the better.
The effects of Juvederm can last anywhere around 18 months. Also, the amount of time it lasts can vary depending on a person’s biology. Juvederm’s results won’t last forever since the aging process will ultimately run out of supply of hyaluronic acid.
