Are you looking into the skin rejuvenating benefits of Juvederm, but wondering if you will need multiple treatments? The injectable treatment is quick and easy to administer and provides long-lasting results without the need for monthly touch-ups. If you have any questions about this treatment, contact New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Weymouth, MA for more information.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for preventing and reducing signs of aging. The treatment contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body’s tissue and joints that is excellent at holding moisture. The substance is injected under the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines without the need for invasive surgical procedures or lasers.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Each Juvederm treatment session is conducted in our Weymouth office and takes as little as 15 minutes to complete. Patients typically need only one session to achieve long-lasting results. A session can require one or four syringes of the hyaluronic acid solution, and Dr. Lazor can address multiple aging signs in one session. The final results of the treatment will appear over two weeks and can last as many as two years before patients need a touch-up.
What Are the Benefits?
Juvederm is longer lasting than similar injectable treatments, providing up to two years of age-reducing results. There is no pain associated with the treatment, and a topical anesthetic or an injection of lidocaine administered before the treatment can reduce discomfort. Patients will not encounter any downtime, recovery time, or scarring due to the treatment and often return to work immediately after treatment.
The treatment can safely treat the following aging signs:
- Nasolabial folds or “smile lines”
- Glabellar lines or “frown lines” occurring between the brows
- “Marionette lines”
- Lip thinning
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Decreased cheek volume
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
Patients of all skin types and genders can enjoy the age reducing benefits of the treatment. Patients of all ages can see results, but more injections of the solution in a single session may be required to address deep lines and wrinkles. The treatment is safe and painless, and patients will not be required to have a touch up for as long as two years. Recovery from treatment is immediate, and patients with a busy schedule can complete a session during their lunch break and return to their normal routine immediately.
Your treatment will begin with a consultation to see if this treatment is the best solution for you. The treatment may not be recommended for patients who are pregnant or nursing. Patients may be instructed to avoid strenuous activity, alcohol consumption, and sun exposure for some time after the treatment.
