Juvederm in Indianapolis is a cosmetic injectable filler treatment used for reducing age signs and improving lip volume. This dermal filler treatment volumizes the skin, restoring facial contours. It was approved by The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006 and is a very popular choice for facial rejuvenation.
The minimally invasive non-surgical procedure focuses on the midface region, especially the cheeks. It addresses numerous moderate and harsh facial wrinkles. These include the nasolabial folds, perioral lip lines (also called smoker’s lines or lipstick lines), marionette lines, and parentheses lines.
Thin lips are another common aging issue. With Juvederm injections, thin lips can be augmented and defined through precise volumizing.
Before and After
The Science Behind Juvederm
Juvederm has a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) as its base. This is a synthetic version of our body’s own natural hyaluronic acid, which serves as a cushioning agent for the tissues. The HA in Juvederm bonds with water molecules in the skin tissues to create volume. This in turn fills in moderate and harsh wrinkles.
A local anesthetic called lidocaine is present in Juvederm. This numbs the area to be treated, preventing any sensations of pain in order to create a more comfortable experience.
Juvederm comes in the form of a malleable gel and is manufactured using Hylacross technology. Because of this technology, it is smoother in consistency than many other fillers.
Before patients can undergo a Juvederm treatment, they must first meet with a skilled professional for a consultation. During your consultation, your treatment areas will be examined to ensure that Juvederm is the ideal solution for you. You will also go over your complete medical history, including allergies and current medications.
The Juvederm injection procedure will be explained to you in detail, along with preparation and aftercare steps. You can ask any questions you may have about your treatment at this time.
Your Treatment Session
At the start of a Juvederm treatment session, the targeted wrinkles may be marked as a guide for the injector. The injections are then delivered precisely into the wrinkles. The lidocaine present in the Juvederm will numb the area during treatment to ensure comfort.
After a Juvederm Treatment
Once a Juvederm treatment session has been completed, patients can go about their day as normal. There is no need for downtime, and there is no recovery period required. In some cases, there may be mild bruising, swelling, soreness, and/or redness in the injection spots, but these are temporary.
The results of Juvederm last for six months to one year. After this time, patients often return to our office to get a maintenance treatment, preserving their rejuvenated look.
How Much Does Juvederm Cost?
The price of Juvederm injections is based on the number of injections required. Additionally, the number of wrinkles being treated can play a role in the overall cost of a Juvederm treatment session.
