What is Juvederm Injectable Filler used for?

What is Juvederm Injectable Filler used for? | Glendale Medical SpaJuvederm is one of the leading FDA approved dermal fillers available today, which is designed to improve the facial signs of aging in a safe and effective way without cosmetic surgery.

The treatment is aimed at addressing the cosmetic needs of patients who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, creases and fine lines from their face with an in-office procedure.

At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will educate the patient about all aspects of Juvederm injectable filler and help them make a well-considered decision. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides Juvederm injectable facial filler to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

How does it work?

Juvederm gel-based filler is injected directly into the targeted areas of the face with the help of a very fine needle. The filler gel will treat moderate to severe wrinkles and skin folds, which may occur around the nose, mouth and other facial sites. Juvederm gel makes the skin plumper and fuller almost instantly. The depleted areas of the skin are volumized, and aging signs are smoothed.

Juvederm also stimulates the collagen fibers in the deeper tissue layers of the face to create more sustainable and natural looking results from within. One of the benefits of Juvederm filler is that it is produced from hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human skin. Hyaluronic acid has a natural property to replenish skin volume.

When the facial skin begins losing volume due to aging or other factors, an injectable treatment of Juvederm hyaluronic acid-based filler can restore the volume quickly. The treatment can also be used for lip augmentation. No cuts, incisions, or cosmetic surgery are involved in this filler procedure.

 

Purpose of Treatment

Juvederm can restore natural facial contour, smooth unwanted lines and wrinkles, and enhance lips to provide a more youthful looking face. The injectable procedure can be ideally used for the following purposes:

  • Reduce nasolabial folds and smooth lines around the nose and mouth.
  • Augment the size and enhance the shape of lips.
  • Reduce the appearance of laugh lines.
  • Minimize crow’s feet around the eyes.
  • Restore volume to the cheeks to provide a fuller facial profile.

Static facial lines that are visible even when the face is still and without expression can be treated most effectively with Juvederm. Lips can also be made softer and more subtle with Juvederm.

 

Results

A single treatment sessions requires anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes. Many patients will need just a single treatment achieve the desired results. Unlike many other cosmetic fillers, Juvederm’s effective formulation ensures that the patient can enjoy the results for up to one year.

Juvederm gel is injected directly into the affected area of the skin using a fine needle, which reduces the injection discomfort. Local anesthetic is usually included in the Juvederm gel, which will ensure patient comfort. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for Juvederm filler treatment.
