Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic option that can fight the signs of aging and rejuvenate your face. Juvéderm has emerged as one of the top choices for patients in Manhattan. When administered by experienced Manhattan dermatologist, Dr. Kwan, it helps patients look and feel their best.
How Juvéderm works
Your skin has three layers, the epidermis – outer layer, dermis – in the center, and hypodermis – the deepest layer. Inside the dermis are many molecules such as hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. When we are young, our dermis has larger amounts of these components, which makes it look hydrated, smooth, and supple.
As we age, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin begin to diminish. The lack of support from the dermis layer causes the epidermis to wrinkle and fold.
When Juvéderm is injected into the skin, it replaces lost hyaluronic acid while also stimulating the production of new collagen. Juvéderm makes you appear younger by smoothing out lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Advantages of Juvéderm:
- Replenishes skin for a more youthful appearance
- Enhances facial features, giving your face a fuller, younger look
Juvéderm for lip enhancement
Not only can Juvéderm fill in the lines and wrinkles on the face, but it can also increase the volume of the lips for a fuller appearance.
Results from Juvéderm
After your Juvéderm treatment, you are free to continue with your normal daily activities. The effects of the treatment can be seen immediately, although it takes two weeks for the product to fully settle into the skin.
Side effects from Juvéderm may include mild swelling or redness near the injection site, but this will resolve quickly.
Like many dermal fillers, results from a Juvéderm treatment can last up to a year. Juvéderm Voluma, which is a special formulation for mid-face volume can last up to two years.
