Juvederm: Best Lip, Cheek & Wrinkle Filler

How many years have you made New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, only to lose your motivation before the first thaw of spring? Making changes to better yourself takes time and it can be frustrating to put in a lot of work for slow, minimal results.

If one of your goals for 2018 is to improve your appearance and improve your confidence, why not consider facial fillers? Reducing fine lines and wrinkles won’t take a gym membership or hours of sweating on a treadmill each week. Using facial fillers to smooth your skin or plump your lips will have you looking your best, and it only takes one to two sessions with your dermatologist each year!

If you’re looking for the newest and best in facial fillers, Juvederm is a newly FDA-approved derma filler containing hyaluronic acid (HA). Other fillers rely on collagen to achieve desired results, but hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in your skin. It contains no human or animal DNA, making it one of the safest fillers on the market. Since the HA in Juvederm is created by biosynthesis in a laboratory, patients do not need to take an allergy test before treatment.

Hyaluronic acid is responsible for the delivery of both moisture and nutrients to your skin and those levels decrease as we age. When our skin loses its moisture and suppleness, it begins to sag and that’s when fine lines and wrinkles become more visible. Approved cosmetic uses of Juvederm include treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, plumping of the lips, filling in the cheek area, and restoring a more youthful shape to the face.

Juvederm treatments cause less discomfort and puffiness than other fillers on the market. This is because it has a smooth gel consistency and requires thinner needles for injection. But perhaps one of the biggest benefits of Juvederm filler is that it produces longer-lasting results than other wrinkle reducers. Results last anywhere from 8 to 12 months.
