Injectables are becoming increasingly popular because desired outcomes are immediately apparent, mostly in just a couple of days after the injection. This is a far cry from cosmetic treatments that involve surgery and long recovery periods.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been dominating the injectables scene for years now. Hyaluronic acid fillers closely follow BOTOX®, with Juvéderm leading the list of frequently requested fillers at our Miami cosmetic surgery practice.
How Juvéderm® works
Like all dermal fillers, Juvéderm® addresses volume loss. The injectable contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that is abundant in young skin and joint tissues and is responsible for supporting the skin. Hyaluronic acid levels dwindle with age and the skin can appear dry, dull, and wrinkled as a result.
A Juvéderm® injection will instantly increase hyaluronic acid levels in the target area resulting in a fuller, more defined appearance. Juvéderm® has been shown to be effective in improving the appearance of sunken cheeks, sagging jawlines, smile lines, and thinning lips.
The entire procedure takes roughly 15 minutes and downtime is non-existent. Side effects, albeit rare, include redness, bruising, and itching at the injection site.
