What Does Juvederm Do?

Juvederm is a filler that’s mostly used for the creases along the nasolabial fold, the lips, and to fill hollows in the face caused by aging or scarring. The ideal application is for people who want to look youthful in a natural way and would like to avoid permanent changes as in a facelift. How does Juvederm work? The active agent in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, which has a number of properties making it suitable as a filler: it’s hydrophilic, meaning it loves water, so when injected under the skin, it will draw lots of moisture into the area, making it look naturally filled with the presence of water, it will also attract nutrients, causing the skin above to be well nourished hyaluronic acid bonds well with collagen and elastin to support the area and make it soft and supple What about hyaluronic acid?

Areas That Can Be Improved With Injectable Fillers

Synthetic dermal fillers can only be used for the face. They are not approved for use on any other place on the body. On the face, though, there are multiple areas and types of blemishes that they can fix. Mouth Lines Dermal fillers work best around the mouth. The cheeks are fatty areas that develop deep folds, even if the skin stays taut. Injecting a dermal filler easily and safely restores volume, taking years of age off your face. Lips This is pretty simple: a dermal filler can give you luscious Angelina-Jolie-level plump lips. Often, this procedure is performed on its own, on both younger and older patients. Hollow Temples Although we don’t always talk about it, temples slump over time. Temple injectables add a more youthful appearance without pushing the brow down. Acne Scars The first-line treatment for acne scars is laser recontouring. For deep scars, this may not…

6 Uses for JUVÉDERM®

Over time, the skin on your body tends to lose some of its elasticity and volume. When this happens, the skin hangs more loosely, sags, and develops wrinkles. This can cause you to look much older than you are, which is not ideal. Thankfully, JUVÉDERM® can help reverse the effects of aging for patients in Montreal. JUVÉDERM, along with similar dermal injectables like Restylane®, is a versatile product that can deliver immediate results with a simple treatment. Your cosmetic surgeon will apply a local numbing cream to the injection site. After the numbing has taken effect, they simply inject the JUVÉDERM into the skin. The whole procedure usually takes about 30 minutes or less to complete. Different people show different signs of aging. Some people will have lots of wrinkles and fine lines in one part of their face and smooth skin in another. Other people may contend with sagging skin and…

What is Juvederm?

Facial fillers are rapidly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic treatments among women and men in Montreal and around the world thanks to their less-invasive techniques and impressive results. Rather than go under the knife for a traditional facelift, many patients are finding that fillers are a great way to create a subtle, natural looking improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face. One of the most popular and highly recommend facial fillers in North America, Juvederm is a smooth, injectable gel filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA). This naturally occurring sugar is already found in the human body, making it a highly safe and natural way to reduce fine lines and plump certain areas of the face to correct the gaunt, tired appearance aging can cause. How Does it Work? Hyaluronic acid naturally combines with water present in the skin to smooth out wrinkles…
