If you don’t develop facial wrinkles as you age, consider yourself lucky and unique. For the vast majority of us, the passage of time, exposure to harsh elements and pollutants, and the cumulative impact of years of lifestyle choices all contribute to facial wrinkles and folds. While we may not be able to turn back the clock, we can fight back against these imperfections with safe, minimally invasive treatments that can restore volume to your facial features and help you appear and feel more like your youthful, vibrant self.
Most prominent among these treatments we provide at Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami aesthetic dermatology clinic are dermal fillers injections. And among the many dermal filler options we offer, perhaps the most popular is Juvéderm.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm Voluma is an FDA-approved dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid. Found in nearly every living organism, this naturally existing sugar molecule performs a number of critical functions, such as lubricating body joints, assisting with the transport of nutrients, and maintaining hydration within the skin. Juvéderm leverages hyaluronic acid’s power to restore volume to the skin, lifting and smoothing away moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, and other fine lines.
What makes hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers like Juvéderm so attractive is that they are composed of a natural molecule already present in our bodies, which maximizes compatibility and minimizes the likelihood of an adverse reaction. This makes Juvéderm extremely popular with first-time dermal filler patients. It is also the first FDA-approved dermal filler found to be safe and effective to treat facial imperfections in persons of color.
Safe and Fast Treatment With Long-Lasting Results
Juvéderm treatment itself can last from 15 to 45 minutes, and patients can go home immediately after. Patients may feel some mild discomfort during or immediately after Juvéderm injections, but it is a mostly painless procedure as most fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize sensitivity and tenderness. Juvéderm typically remains in the skin for six to 18 months, with the improvement in your appearance lasting for the same length of time.
