Juvederam is a hyaluronic acid in the form of viscoelastic gel, which is transparent and homo-geneous. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the body in all living organisms. It give the volume to the skin, lubricates the oints and gives the eyes their shape. In the skin, Hyluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elasticin fibres = replenishing the natural support layers lost with aging - while delivering essential nutriens and hydration. Over time, Hyaluronic acid is gradually reabsorbed in the body.
Juvederm is obtained by biosynthesis and is a non-animal origin, does not require any prior test, and the molecule is highly biocompatible. Juvederm comes in a variety of different concentrations.
After treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a fewdays. During the first 48 hours after your treatment you will be asked not to massage or rub the treated area. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first two days after the treatment. Until the actual swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat, or extreme cold.
Juvederm dissolves naturally with time, and a follow up treatment will be needed if you want to maintain the results.
Typical treatments will last 9 months to 1 year.
Juvederm, like many non-surgical procedures, does not have to be performed by a plastic sugeon, but can should be taken that a medical aesthetic staff is performing these injections.
