Treat Yourself In The New Year And Refresh Your Appearance With Juvederm

Juvéderm, Family Medical Clinic

Does your skin look tired and worn out? It doesn’t have to stay that way. Thanks to Juvéderm®, available here at Family Medical Clinic in Soldotna, Alaska, you can kick off the new year with a refreshed face that defies the years, and don’t need surgery to get it.

Juvéderm restores volume and refreshes your skin

Made from a hyaluronic acid formula, Juvéderm is a dermal filler that’s injected into your face to remove and diminish fine lines, creases, and wrinkles. It can also restore lost volume to your lips. Approved by the FDA in 2006, Juvéderm has taken the cosmetics world by storm, and it has become one of the most common filler treatments in the United States.

Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in your skin. It’s responsible for stimulating the production of collagen, a connective tissue that works together with elastin to keep your skin elastic, youthful, and wrinkle-free.

As you get older, your body reduces its production of hyaluronic acid, so your facial skin starts to loosen, thereby enabling creases, fine lines, and wrinkles to appear.

Juvéderm halts this process by filling in fine lines and adding volume. The hyaluronic acid injected into your skin also stimulates new production of collagen to help your body fight the signs of aging.

Results are immediate and long-lasting

With surgical treatments for skin rejuvenation, it can take weeks for the bruising and swelling to disappear before you see any results. However, with Juvéderm injections, you can see results immediately without the need for surgery.

Furthermore, you can customize your plan. There’s more than one Juvéderm formula available to treat what you need. There are formulas that can enhance your lips, plump out your cheeks, restore elasticity, and diminish lines and wrinkles. No matter what you need, there’s a formula for you.

While the formula immediately gets to work filling in and volumizing your skin, the hyaluronic acid is absorbed into the deepest dermal layers, where it slowly triggers the production and release of collagen. This is a process that can take some weeks, but will ensure results last for around two years before further treatment is needed.

Recovery time is minimal

There may be some mild redness or soreness around the injection site, but this should go away in a week or two. We advise that you avoid direct sunlight, wearing makeup, consuming alcohol, or engaging in strenuous activity for 24 hours.

You should be able to return to work right after treatment. Injection sessions usually take 15-30 minutes, so you can schedule an appointment on your lunch break.
