Juvederm: a Botox Alternative
- Posted on: Nov 15 2014
If you’re looking to get rid of all those fine lines on your face, you’re probably very overwhelmed with all the filler options out there. Everyone knows about Botox, but what other options do you have? How do they all differ from each other? In this post, you will learn about one of your many options: Juvederm.
Where Can Juvederm Work?
Like most fillers, Juvederm’s purpose is to erase your wrinkles and fill in the sunken areas of your face. Juvederm specifically targets smile lines around the mouth and the nose. However, it can be used for many other purposes as well, including lines around the eyes or filling in scarring. It is also often used for lip augmentation, as it is able to quickly add lots of volume.
What Are the Results Like?
Juvederm is a filler where you will start to see results instantly! It immediately plumps up your skin, ridding your face of those hollow areas and fine lines. In addition, Juvederm is one of the longest-lasting fillers. Results usually last 6 to 9 months and often last up to a year before the filler is reabsorbed into the body.
Essentially, the results look natural. You will instantaneously look younger and radiant for months to come—all with one fast treatment.
What Is in Juvederm?
A smooth gel, Juvederm is made from ingredients that work well with your body and heighten comfort. The main component of the filler is hyaluronic acid. This is naturally found in your skin, making it perfectly safe for when it reabsorbs. Also, it means that there is less of a chance your skin will negatively react, as it is natural! This acid also works well with the collagen and elastin in your skin. This helps your skin get more nutrients and absorb water to add volume. The hyaluronic acid is basically how and why the filler works the way it does.
The other important part of the gel is lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthestic. Adding it to our formula makes the experience more comfortable for you, both during and after the treatment.
