April 4, 2016 4:38 am
Lines and wrinkles on your face are a telltale sign of age and exposure. Many people look for long-term treatment options to help erase lines and give them a younger appearance. Juvederm is an injectable gel of hyaluronic acid filler that has been approved by the FDA to help reduce lines and wrinkles for up to a year. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance produced by young healthy skin. As we age our skin loses some of its ability to produce this compound. While Juvederm can be used on your face, it is particularly popular for smoothing out smile lines around the nose and mouth. Juvederm can offer relief to your face, not just by hiding lines and wrinkles, but calming the muscles in your face relieving symptoms of TMJ or Bruxism that can cause serious pain and muscle tightness in your face. Before your appointment, tell us about any medications you are taking or medical conditions that might make you prone to bruising or bleeding. In some cases, they might recommend that you stop taking a particular medication for a week or so in advance. For 24 hours after the procedure, you should avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and alcohol intake. This will limit the potential for bruising and speed recovery time.
