Juvederm is one of the most popular facial fillers on the market. This hyaluronic acid filler is the only one approved by the FDA to last up to a year, offering a long-lasting, smooth fix for wrinkles and facial folds. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, and it has the highest level of non-animal HA of any commercially available dermal filler. It is a highly effective, non-surgical option for reducing wrinkles around the lips and mouth, which can offer patients a glowing and more youthful look. Read about 5 advantages of using Juvederm.

1. Juvederm is Comfortable

This facial filler contains lidocaine, which offers localized pain relief. With the XC formula, the patient receives an injection that is gentle and comfortable, allowing them to feel at ease during and after treatment.

2. It Offers Smooth, Natural Looking Results Around the Mouth

Juvederm contains a gel that is of a smooth consistency. Unlike other hyaluronic acid-containing fillers created with a granular gel, this option has a very smooth feel, and offers results that are particularly natural. For many patients, there’s no better method for lip enhancement.

3. Results Can be Seen Immediately

While some dermal fillers take a while to see results, patients using Juvederm can see nearly instant improvement when affected areas are treated. Most clients need only one treatment to achieve a desirable volume increase around the lips. With this filler, this feature is a definite plus.

4. The Procedure is Brief

Juvederm treatment can be performed in less than 15 minutes in some cases, but treatment time depends on the area to be treated. For various patients, downtime is minimal, and normal activities can be resumed the same day. For this reason, the treatment is sometimes referred to as a lunchtime procedure.

5. Juvederm is Reversible and Biodegradable

Another significant advantage of this treatment is that it’s completely reversible. If a client is not satisfied with his or her results, they can go back to their previous appearance. Today’s hyaluronic acid-based fillers are fully biodegradable, which means the gel gradually breaks down and eventually disappears.

Though facial filling isn’t right for everyone, many patients who opt for treatment are satisfied and have been able to regain a more youthful appearance.
