Austin Juvederm Injections
Juvederm is an injectable facial filler used to soften the appearance of deep folds and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. One of the key signifiers of beautiful, healthy skin is the presence of youthful volume. When we are younger, our faces have a fuller, plumper look due to normal facial fat. As we age however, this facial fat begins to diminish, which can give facial features a hallow, gaunt look. As elements of the skin like collagen and fat begin to degrade, skin that was once thick and supple becomes lose and begins to sag. Additionally, as skin loses its tautness, wrinkles and creases begin to form, making the face look haggard and worn.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is made up of a naturally occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar-based component that occurs naturally in your connective tissues (including the skin). Its major role is to provide lubrication for the joints, however, its water-binding and elastic properties also provide a skin-plumping effect. Hyaluronic acid’s role in the skin is to deliver nutrients and hydrate the skin by holding in water and acting as a cushioning agent. When Juvederm is injected into facial tissue, it acts a bit like a sponge, drawing water molecules from the surrounding area and plumping up the skin.
What is Juvederm Used to Treat?
Juvederm is a fantastic wrinkle filler that restores youthful volume while smoothing out depressed areas of the skin. This dermal filler is often used to improve the appearance of marionette lines, smile lines, wrinkles, vertical lip lines and to augment the lips.
How is Juvederm Administered?
Juvederm injections are supplemented with the local anesthetic lidocaine for enhanced comfort during treatment. Juvederm gels are injected just below the surface of the skin using an ultra-fine needle and treatment typically takes less than 1 hour. Most of our patients feel comfortable returning back to work or other normal activites immediately after their Austin Juvederm treatment. Juvederm results can be seen instantly after treatment is administered. Depending on where Juvederm is injected, results can last anywhere from 6 months to a year before repeat treatment is needed.
