As we age, it is not uncommon to lose volume in our faces. Juvederm is an injectable filler that can help restore volume to areas that have lost it over time. These areas include the lips, cheeks, around the eyes, and fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face.
What is JUVEDERM?
JUVEDERM® is hyaluronic acid, a substance found in the skin that helps retain moisture and deliver nutrients, keeping the skin soft and smooth. Because it is naturally occurring, HA is safe and easy to use, with minimal side effects. Dr. Flora Levin provides JUVEDERM injections to patients in Westport, New Canaan, New Haven, Greenwich, and Darien CT, and surrounding areas.
How is JUVEDERM® Administered?
JUVEDERM® treatments usually take around 15-30 minutes and are relatively painless when using a topical anesthetic. A fine needle or a blunt microcannula is used to deliver the product, depending on the area being injected and the desired outcome of the injection.
How Do I Know if JUVEDERM® is Right for Me?
With so many different filler products available, how do you know which is the right one for you? It’s essential to choose a physician that is not only an expert injector but one whose aesthetic view is comparable to yours. Make sure to have a detailed consultation explaining what you are trying to achieve, and listen carefully as your physician explains their recommended treatment plan.
They will advise on which type of filler will be best. Remember to keep your expectations realistic and understand that several JUVEDERM® treatments over several months may be needed to achieve the desired correction. In some cases, a combination of different products or treatments may be recommended for optimum results.
