Juvederm Treatment in Fairfield County
As we age, so does our skin. And the effects of aging are perhaps most apparent on our face. Crow’s feet, smile lines and frown lines become more visible, creating wrinkles and creases on our faces. If you are bothered by these unsightly signs of aging, Juvederm with Dr. Sandra Margoles can help.
Juvederm is a popular injectable dermal filler consisting of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration. When injected into the skin, wrinkles are smoothed out and hollow skin areas are filled, resulting in a softer, younger-looking appearance.
Benefits of Juvederm
Juvederm is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment proven to be safe and effective for restoring lost volume in facial areas as well as filling in wrinkles, creases and lines. The hyaluronic acid found in Juvederm is responsible for helping the skin cells retain moisture, and the skin maintain its volume and elasticity. Thanks to Juvederm’s smooth consistency and replenishing quality, patients can enjoy results that look and feel natural.
Juvederm can treat:
- Crow’s feet (branching wrinkles that form at the outer corner of the eyes)
- Nasolabial folds (deep folds between the cheeks and nose)
- Marionette lines (lines between the nose and the mouth’s outer corners)
- Thin or aged lips
- Sunken areas around the eyes and cheekbones
Your Juvederm Treatment with Dr. Margoles
Juvederm treatment with Dr. Margoles typically takes about 30 minutes. To minimize discomfort, Dr. Margoles can numb the targeted areas before treatment. Next, the doctor will use a syringe to inject the Juvederm gel into the target areas. Juvederm smooths out lines and plumps the facial skin, allowing the face to take on a more youthful-looking quality.
What to Expect After Your Treatment
Because Juvederm is minimally invasive, you are free to return to your normal routine immediately after treatment. You may experience mild discomfort, swelling and some initial soreness where the Juvederm gel has been injected. These side effects typically dissipate within a week after treatment. Some patients may experience bruising as a result of treatment. This is rare, however, and can be easily covered by makeup while the skin heals. There is little to no downtime with Juvederm; most patients are able to return to work immediately and can resume regular exercise within a day or two.
A smooth, younger-looking facial appearance with Juvederm typically lasts about six months. To maintain your results, Dr. Margoles recommends you schedule repeat treatments spaced out several months apart. Prior to your treatment, Dr. Margoles can discuss your goals and options with you in detail to design a treatment plan that best achieves the results you desire.
