Find out more about this dermal filler and what it could do for your appearance.

Many people are looking for ways to get a more youthful appearance. If you find yourself lathering on the next anti-aging product in the hopes of saying goodbye to stubborn lines and wrinkles there might be an easier way. Find out more about Juvederm and how our JuvedermClemmons doctors Dr. Jordan Wallin and Dr. Brian Downs can help you.

Q. What is Juvederm?

A. This non-surgical treatment is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to treat lines and wrinkles of the face and to enhance your appearance and make skin look younger.

Q. What is it used for?

A. Juvederm is injected into the top layers of the face using a thin needle. While it will smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, it can also reduce the appearance of scars and improve skin’s volume and radiance.

Q. What makes Juvederm different from other dermal fillers?

A. Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that has results that last up to one year. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is already naturally occurring in the skin. Healthy skin has a lot of hyaluronic acid present, but sunlight and other issues can actually reduce the amount of HA in the skin. Loss of HA can lead to a loss of volume in the skin, which can result in wrinkles and fold.

Q. When will results show up? How long will results last?

A. You will be able to see a change in your appearance right after treatment, with the optimal results appearing in about 10 days. As we mentioned above, results are only meant to last up to one year, but you can choose to get touch-up treatments from our Clemmons doctors to maintain your results for longer.
