How to Treat Wrinkles with Juvéderm®

The culprit for those pesky wrinkles and lines is due to loss of fat, elasticity, hydration, and collagen in the skin. The loss of these essential components can be due to age, genetics, sun exposure, diet, amongst many other things. Unfortunately, there isn’t much that you can do about it on your own. Even the most advanced ingredients in the most prestigious skincare can only do so much. Juvéderm is becoming increasingly popular due to its ability to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, but how does it work?

Board-certified plastic & reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Bryan S. Armijo offers a wide range of Juvéderm products to help target your specific aesthetic concerns. His experience in cosmetic medicine and surgery started at a young age where he learned surgery’s ability to not only heal physically, but emotionally as well.

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a safe, effective, non-surgical option for those looking to smooth away the appearance of moderate to dynamic facial lines and wrinkles. Dr. Armijo uses a non-animal dermal filler of smooth consistency gel that allows for seamless injection and instantly natural results. The solution is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that helps to add volume and hydration.

What Are the Common Types of Juvéderm?

There are several different types of Juvéderm to choose from. While all of them are used to help with facial wrinkles, they all work slightly differently.

Juvéderm Vollure is a smooth consistency gel that is used to add or restore volume in the skin. Its gel-like consistency makes it, so your line and wrinkles are smoothed away instantly while still leaving your skin soft, supple, and radiant.

Juvéderm Voluma XC is another injectable gel that instantly adds volume back into your cheeks. It is becoming a popular non-surgical, non-committal solution to achieve natural-looking results that can last up to two years.

What to Expect After Your Procedure?

Before your injections, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort throughout the procedure. Patients’ most common side effects after Juvéderm injections are temporary swelling, tenderness, bruising, firmness, and redness around the injection sites. These temporary issues can easily be remedied by icing the injection sites, covering any bruising with makeup, and minimizing any strenuous activity and sun exposure for the first 24 hours following the treatment.

Juvéderm injections are an outpatient procedure, which means that you are free to enjoy your improved features immediately after your appointment.
