Aging is something of the past. With so many anti-aging procedures and techniques, there is virtually no excuse for you not to look the way you did 20 years ago–or at least close to it. If you’re looking into filling in some of your fine lines and wrinkles or just want a sexier pout, Juvederm might be the right thing for you.
- How Many Procedures Do I Need?
Unlike other non-invasive cosmetic procedures like laser hair removal, you only need one round of Juvederm in order to start seeing virtually immediate results. Give the Juvederm about two full weeks to fully settle and in order to start seeing optimal results
- How Often Do I Need It?
Unlike other fillers that are required every 8-12 weeks, Juvederm lasts a lot longer and is only needed around every 9 months to a year. So although it might seem like a lot of money to fork out at first, the longevity will make up for the cost in the long run.
- How Much Pain Will I Be In?
During the actual procedure, and depending on the patient, you will feel minimal pain and are more likely to feel discomfort. Additionally, Juvederm has Lidocaine in it to help with any pain involved.
However, swelling and bruising around the injection site is fairly normal and you shouldn’t be alarmed unless it persists for longer than 2-3 weeks.
- Are There Side Effects?
No matter how minimal or non-invasive a procedure is, it’s important to understand and be aware of any potential side-effects that may be involved. Side effects with Juvederm are minimal and typically subside within 7 days. These side effects include tenderness at the injection site, redness, rash, bruising, and some swelling.
If you want to look in the mirror and feel like your true self without the added wrinkles, it might be time to take matters into your own hands, or the hands of a certified professional. Juvederm is not ideal for everyone but if you are struggling with fine lines and wrinkles, it’s definitely something worth looking into.
