As we age, the first signs of the aging process usually appear on our face, where they are extremely noticeable. Wrinkles and fine lines start forming, and before long, we look much older than we actually are.
Whether on our cheeks or forehead, wrinkles and age lines can add years to our appearance. Apart from making us look older, they make us look dull and tired.
When it comes to wrinkle reduction, many people find that facial creams just don’t do the trick, so they look for more effective solutions. Perhaps one of the simplest yet most effective non-surgical solutions to this is to opt for facial fillers. Today, one of the best facial fillers on the market is Juvéderm.
What Exactly Is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler approved by the FDA that adds volume to your face, thus filling in lines and depressions from inside the skin. It is one of the most sought-after non-surgical minimally invasive cosmetic procedures around the globe.
What Is the Procedure Like?
The entire procedure of delivering Juvéderm fillers take no more than an hour, usually about 15 to 60 minutes. The time taken depends on which areas the patient wants treated and how many injections they will need to achieve their desired aesthetic appearance.
The procedure is simple and does not require preparation or a hospital stay. All it involves is Dr. Keegan injecting Juvéderm into the face using thin sterile needles containing Juvéderm filler.
There is usually no pain, but the patient may experience slight discomfort. To prevent this, Dr. Keegan will apply a topical cream that will anesthetize and numb the areas to be treated. There is no downtime required, and the patient can carry on with their day as usual.
The results of the treatment – wrinkle-free skin and a more youthful look – are immediately noticeable and will be even more noticeable after a few weeks. They will last for six months to a year, after which the patient will have to return to Dr. Keegan for more Juvéderm injections to maintain their youthful look.
Who Is an Eligible Candidate for Juvéderm?
If you are an adult who is not satisfied with their appearance due to moderate and deep facial lines and wrinkles, Juvéderm is ideal for you. Also, since there is no downtime required after the procedure, it is perfect for people who are busy and cannot afford days off. In many cases, it can easily be performed during a patient’s lunch break.
