How does Juvéderm improve wrinkles?

FDA-approved in 2006, Juvéderm restores the loss of hyaluronic acid, improving the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles and achieving a refreshed, more youthful look. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring, moisture-binding substance that keeps our skin plump, strong, firm, and hydrated. This is why it’s often referred to as our body’s “internal moisturizer”. However, over the years as we get older, our natural hyaluronic acid begins to subside. This is when facial lines and wrinkles begin to become more visible. Because Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid-based, it’s able to provide firmer, more youthful-looking skin by binding itself to the water molecules in the skin. This provides remarkable volume and lift. 

Juvéderm treatment details

Dr. Halaas injectes Juvéderm with a very fine needle, and the product also contains lidocaine to numb the area. Treatments are quick and convenient, taking only about 15 minutes, and most patients return to their regular day immediately after their appointment. Some patients experience temporary side effects including redness, bruising, swelling, bumpy skin, itchiness, and/or firmness at the treated areas. These side effects should subside quickly, but if you’re worried about any of them, please bring it up with Dr. Halaas. Results last 6-12 months.

Had Juvéderm injections on my lips recently with Dr. Halaas, and she was incredible! I showed her photos of what I wanted and it came out even better than I had anticipated. Their office is clean, organized, and well run. I won’t be going elsewhere for any future procedures.
