Everyone’s skin ages differently. Some people start noticing wrinkles and ﬁne lines way ahead of time, while others don’t start showing the signs of aging until they reach their ﬁUies. Whether you are in your thirties or stepping into your sixties, there is a way for you to get rid of your wrinkles without any surgery. Yes, we are talking about JUVEDERM® cosmetic ﬁllers. A recent development in the world of dermatology and aesthetics, JUVEDERM® cosmetic ﬁllers are quickly gaining popularity all over the world.
Here are 5 things that you should know about JUVEDERM® cosmetic ﬁllers before you visit your plastic surgeon for the treatment.
5 Things You Must Know about JUVEDERM® Cosmetic Fillers
1. JUVEDERM® Cosmetic Fillers are Not like Botox
Both Botox and JUVEDERM® cosmetic ﬁllers are injected into the skin, but they work very differently in reality. JUVEDERM® ﬁllers do not contain any toxins neither do they aﬀect facial muscles. The product just sits under the skin and makes it look youthful and plump.
On the other hand, Botox works by freezing facial muscles to prevent the formation of future wrinkles. The results from JUVEDERM® ﬁllers act in a diﬀerent time frame and last longer than Botox.
2. Anyone with Aging Signs Can Use JUVEDERM® Fillers
JUVEDERM® ﬁllers can be used by anyone who has deep wrinkles or ﬁne lines on their face. These ﬁllers can even help you get rid of saggy skin by ﬁlling in places. This will enable you to regain your youthful and radiant look.
However, if you have ever had allergic reactions to certain medications, you must discuss your allergies with your plastic surgeon prior to the treatment to minimize any risk of adverse reactions. While it is pretty rare to face any reactions with JUVEDERM® ﬁllers, they are still risky for people who have suﬀered allergic reactions in the past.
JUVEDERM® cosmetic ﬁllers are not recommended for people that are on blood-thinning medication since there is a chance that the injection site will bleed. Women who are pregnant or nursing should also stay away from any cosmetic injections.
3. JUVEDERM® Fillers Can Have Mild Side Effects
Anyone can experience some minor side eﬀects such as swelling and bruising with JUVEDERM® ﬁllers. More severe side eﬀects can occur in patients that are allergic to certain medications ad bacteria or have a history of immune disorders. These severe side eﬀects include severe bruising and swelling and lumping of the skin.
4. JUVEDERM® Fillers Have a Gel-Like Consistency
JUVEDERM® is the gel ﬁller your physician will use on you to smooth away the wrinkles around your mouth and nose instantly. You can get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year with just one treatment. These ﬁllers are manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology that creates a smooth, gel-like consistency.
5. JUVEDERM® Cosmetic Fillers Are Comfortable
JUVEDERM® cosmetic ﬁllers contain lidocaine, a popular anesthetic, which provides comfort during the treatment. The results include instantly smooth and comfortable skin. Not all cosmetic ﬁllers are as smooth and comfortable as JUVEDERM®. Other ﬁllers that are currently on the market and made of hyaluronic acid contain gels with granular consistency, but these unique ﬁllers ensure that you get the natural look you have wanted and feel comfortable in your own skin!
