You can say goodbye to those stubborn lines and wrinkles in one simple cosmetic treatment.
Mark Twain once said, “Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been!” Of course, some people hate the idea of showing off those lines and wrinkles as they age. If you are looking to give your appearance a little revamp and smooth away years from your face then it’s time to turn to our Aberdeen, SD, dermatologists for a simple solution to give you the skin you want.
What is Juvederm?
Our Aberdeen skin doctors use this dermal filler to provide skin-smoothing results and to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles in just one session.
How does it work?
Young, beautiful skin contains hyaluronic acid (HA). Unfortunately, sun damage, age and other issues can reduce how much HA is found in the skin. As we lose HA we also lose volume and elasticity, which can lead to sagging, wrinkled skin.
Juvederm contains this naturally occurring substance (HA) to help reduce wrinkles, achieve a more youthful appearance and to improve overall skin tone and elasticity.
What issues can Juvederm treat?
Juvederm can treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds and even plump up thinning lips. Laugh lines respond best to this treatment.
What goes into getting Juvederm?
Getting Juvederm injections only takes a couple minutes to complete. Since Juvederm needles also contain lidocaine in the solution the areas that we treat will be completely numb.
Are there any side effects?
Since Juvederm is able to smooth away lines and wrinkles with a substance that is already naturally found in your skin you’ll enjoy this treatment without the concern of side effects or complications. While the skin may experience some minor redness, swelling or irritation right after these injections, this is minor and will go away in a couple of days.
How long will my results last? Can I get Juvederm more than once?
Juvederm, like all dermal fillers, won’t last forever. Of course, you will enjoy your beautiful results for up to one year, which is longer than other cosmetic fillers. And good news: You can get follow-up treatments to maintain your results for even longer.
