The idea of turning back the hands of times sounds like something straight out of a science fiction movie. But with today’s dermatological advances, the ability to reverse the signs of aging is definitely within reach for the everyday person! With the use of cosmetic injectables such as Juvéderm, patients can dramatically enhance their appearance, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles of the face quickly and easily with the team at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills.
What is Juvéderm?
The providers at our practice describe Juvéderm as a gel-like injectable that is used for filling imperfections in the facial skin to reverse aging. Many patients find that regular injections of Juvéderm help them in maintaining their natural youthfulness. At Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills, we find that this gel, which contains hyaluronic acid, helps fill in imperfections of the skin and address many areas of the face, including:
- Forehead folds
- Frown lines
- Glabellar lines (between the eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet
- Chin wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Nasolabial folds
- Lip augmentation
- Marionette lines
What can I expect during my Juvéderm appointment?
When patients speak to their provider about using Juvéderm and decide to move forward with treatment, they will be situated in the treatment chair. The skin is cleansed to remove cosmetics, oil, and impurities from the skin. Then, the doctor will carefully administer injections of Juvéderm in the areas discussed. Patients will experience mild discomfort during the injections, but this is often well-tolerated by our patients. After the injections have been completed, our team will discuss aftercare instructions and advise patients as to the common side effects that can occur within the first few days following treatment.
How long does Juvéderm last?
Juvéderm is not a permanent solution for aging skin. Instead, it is a way to slow the signs of aging and delay the need for plastic surgery. Most patients find that Juvéderm appointments scheduled several months apart can help them in maintaining the results.
