Juvederm® Boca Raton
Finally there’s a way to reduce the appearance of smile lines. JUVEDERM® is an FDA-Approved compound used to minimize the appearance of all types of smile lines that appear with age.
There are three basic facial lines that form on a person’s face: Perpendicular Lip Lines, which lines form between the nose and lips, Marionette Lines running perpendicular around the corners of the mouth, and finally Nasolabial Folds that form below the nose and run perpendicular to the corners of the mouth.
These lines are sometimes called smile lines or parentheses, and if you’re tired of seeing those facial lines JUVEDERM® can help you reclaim a more youthful looking face.
What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® is a sugar compound found in the body known as hyaluronic acid. This acid regulates cell development and renewal, and also has the ability to attach to water molecules. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin it gives it a fuller look which reduces the appearance wrinkles and fine lines on the surface.
How JUVEDERM® Works
When we are young, our skin has an abundance of hyaluronic acid; however, as we age the amount of hyaluronic acid begins to fade allowing wrinkles and folds to form. To help restore the lost hyaluronic acid, JUVEDERM® is injected into the skin providing the lost hydration. As a result, the wrinkles and fine lines are reduced or even eliminated.
The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes and the recovery time is minimal. You can even have the procedure done during your lunch break.
The side effects of JUVEDERM® are minimal and usually include redness, tenderness, bumps and bruising around the injection site. There can also be pain, swelling, itching and discoloration. There is a mild risk of infection.
