Juvederm® , by Allergan, are a range of FDA approved hyaluronic acid based injectable dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring acid that acts a a cushion and lubricant, keeping skin plump and firm. The smooth gel formula comes with Lidocaine, a numbing agent, to reduce any discomfort that may be felt during treatment.
Injectable fillers are used to temporarily create volume and restore a youthful appearance in the face, neck, decolletage, and even hands. Lasting between 12 and 24 months, it creates natural and elegant results as it improves hydration, stimulates production of collagen, and even maintains elasticity. This happens because hyaluronic acid (or HA) is a water holding molecule, making it perfect for filling in lines and wrinkles, as well as reshaping the nose, and non-surgical facelifts.
Due to the nature of the dermal filler, results are noticeable immediately following treatment, however these can take a few days to settle into their optimal effects. Some small side effects like swelling and bruising is expected, but can be reduced if you follow the aftercare advise your doctor gives you, including avoiding alcohol, smoking, and strenuous exercise.
