How Juvéderm Works
- Posted on: Nov 30 2014
Aside from providing cosmetic and reconstructive eyelid surgery, Dr. Tresley and the rest of the staff at our Chicago practice are top-notch injectable providers. An increasing number of our patients are seeking injectables to restore their youthful glow without the downtime and higher costs of surgery.
Amongst facial fillers, Juvederm is one of the most popular. What are the best uses of Juvederm?
The skin’s youthful plump or firmness can be partly attributed to the abundance of a naturally occurring substance in the body called hyaluronic acid. As we age, the supply of hyaluronic acid decreases resulting in the formation of wrinkles, creases, and folds. This is where Juvederm, which is made of hyaluronic acid, comes in.
Juvederm injections help the skin replenish its supply of hyaluronic acid. Unsightly wrinkles are smoothed out with restored skin volume. Nasolabial folds, the lines and folds from the cheeks to the upper lip, respond very well to Juvederm. Moreover, Juvederm treatments can also be used to improve lip volume, cheek contours, and fill in hollows between the lower eyelids and cheeks. The plumping effects of Juvederm last from six months to a year. Plus, its effects can be extended with repeated treatments.
