As Denver's premier medical spa, Facial Aesthetics offers a wide variety of skin care options. When our patients seek out injectable treatments, they may sometimes be unaware of the differences between each one. Our clinical staff takes pride in educating our patients on the procedures they choose. So, what exactly, is Juvederm®?
Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler treatment used to fill portions of the face affected by the aging process. It mainly consists of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally occurring in areas of the body, such as:
Hyaluronic acid contributes to the volume and overall hydration of your skin by binding with collagen and elastin. This substance hydrates and increases the skin's capacity to hold water and nutrients, ultimately giving it more volume underneath and more moisture on the surface.
Juvederm is designed to temporarily reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles, including:
- Lines between the nose and upper lip
- Smile lines
- Wrinkles at the corners of the mouth
- Lines from the mouth to the chin
Juvederm has also proven to be beneficial in restoring lost volume in areas of the face, most commonly the cheeks. Our experienced team can also use this injectable treatment to plump up your lips.
When injected correctly by our medical aesthetician, Juvederm can help you maintain a more youthful look. This treatment can last between six to nine months, and will require additional treatments to help maintain the cosmetic results you want to achieve.
