Our patients in Baton Rouge are loving how Juvederm® is banishing their lines and wrinkles with a fast and easy treatment at our office. Juvederm® is a facial filler that increases skin volume and leads to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles that can leave you looking older than your actual age. If you have noticed the steady encroachment of wrinkles on your face, you should consider undergoing this type of treatment after first getting some good information on this safe and effective anti-aging procedure.
What is Juvederm®?
This product is a facial filler containing something called hyaluronic acid and lidocaine. Hyaluronic acid is a special substance that becomes depleted due to the effects of aging. By injecting your face with Juvederm®, we are helping to alleviate this deficiency and reduce lines and wrinkles on the face. Lidocaine is included to ensure your comfort during your procedure.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Skin tends to develop lines and wrinkles due to a gradual loss of age-related skin volume. Much of this loss is caused by a deficiency of hyaluronic acid, an important skin component that draws moisture into your skin. Skin deficient in hyaluronic acid will grow gradually thinner and more susceptible to the formation of wrinkles.
What Conditions are Treated by Juvederm®?
This facial filler is generally used for the treatment of lines and wrinkles on the face. But there is actually an entire family of products under the Juvederm® umbrella. Products are also available to plump and define your lips or fill in hollowed areas around the face. The product has been approved for reducing the appearance of lines running from the nose to the mouth and those found above the upper lip. It can also be used to add volume and definition to the lips or for the treatment of frown lines.
Is Juvederm® the Same is Restylane?
The two products are somewhat similar, but Juvederm® contains both hyaluronic acid and lidocaine for your comfort during your injections.
