Juvederm is a dermal filler regularly used by your favorite Beverly Hills skin specialists to improve certain areas of the face. It is designed to add definition and volume to the mid-cheek. This facial area is very susceptible to sagging, and tends to look “deflated” as we age. Juvederm offers a solution to this problem, as it re-sculpts the cheeks to once again provide them with youthful volume.
Let’s take a closer look at what Juvederm does for cheeks, as well as other relevant information:
The dermal filler is injected deep into the skin to provide it with optimal support. It features a powerful and effective combination of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin to improve cheek structure and elasticity. Cheeks look naturally smooth and contoured as a result.
Results are immediate, and continue to improve in the days following the procedure. The effects of Juvederm last six to 12 months depending on the patient.
Unlike a facelift, there’s no long recovery time associated with Juvederm. It’s entirely possible to resume normal activities as soon as the procedure is over, with many patients having it done on their lunch break and returning to work the same day.
There’s little to no pain associated with Juvederm injections.
Side effects are minimal, as per the official Juvederm website:
For JUVÉDERM® XC, most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and last 7 days or less. The most common side effects include temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration.
For JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, side effects are moderate (uncomfortable), and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. The most common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
