Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Gel
Treatments with Juvederm can minimize lines and wrinkles, to helping you appear younger and more rested.
Juvederm is composed of hyaluronic acid, which your skin also contains. Hyaluronic acid delivers necessary hydration to your skin, providing youthful volume. When injected into deep lines, Juvederm acts as a sort of scaffolding for the depressed skin, giving it support and smoothing its appearance.
Good Candidates for Juvederm in Coral Springs
Juvederm mimics the hyaluronic acid in your own skin and can be used to treat patients over the age of 18 and those of many different skin types. In South Florida, Dr. Levens uses Juvederm injectable gel for treating:
- moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
- marionette lines
- facial contouring and lip augmentation
- nasolabial folds
When you meet with Dr. Levens for your consultation, you will be able to discuss your unique needs and aesthetic goals. Based on this and his own expertise, Dr. Levens will carefully plan your Juvederm treatments to help you get a maximum reduction in visible wrinkles.
What Happens During Juvederm Treatment?
When you come in for your treatment of Juvederm, the appointment itself should be quite short. As Juvederm contains lidocaine, you should not need an additional anesthetic. Using special techniques that evenly distribute the product, Dr. Levens will carefully inject specific amounts of Juvederm beneath the surface of your skin. At the treatment sites, Dr. Levens may also apply a gentle hand massage. This helps him ensure the product is evenly placed for an ultimate smoothing effect. Juvederm works immediately in your skin and you will be able to see a reduction in wrinkles right away.
Following your treatment, the skin at the treatment site may feel taut and you may experience some redness or swelling. The application of an ice pack should minimize these side effects, which are usually short-lived.
The wrinkle smoothing effects of your Juvederm treatment can last up to one year, at which point the product will be naturally reabsorbed by your body. As the Juvederm begins to break down during this time, you will likely wish to return to Dr. Levens for touch-up treatments to maintain the look. During these maintenance visits, a lesser amount of Juvederm is usually necessary to keep up the look.
