Juvederm is a cosmetic procedure using an injectable filler that treats facial wrinkles, improves facial contours and restores a more youthful appearance in the fight against aging.
The treatment of dermal filler is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It focuses on the face, especially the cheeks, lips and around the mouth.
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler that helps add volume and contour to lift your face. One of the biggest advantages of these types of fillers is that they can be reversed with a simple injection of another medication.
There are no chances of lumps or thickening from granulomas that plague the non-HA fillers. Here are five types of Juvederm fillers available in your Palm Springs area:
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural occurring, hydrating substance that is found in your skin. As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases, which increases the appearance of sagging and wrinkling of facial skin as your skin loses structure and volume. Juvederm works by adding volume to your facial tissue using hyaluronic acid to stimulate the production of collagen, the connective tissue that plumps the skin.
The treatment of Juvederm can take as little as 15 minutes and up to an hour depending on the area that will be treated.
During the procedure, you will be injected with Juvederm into a targeted area, which will be lightly massage to make sure you receive even distribution. The injections contain a small amount of lidocaine to help deal with pain and minimize any discomfort you might feel during your treatment.
Anyone in good physical health and with realistic expectations are good candidates for a Juvederm Rancho Mirage injection.
A Juvederm treatment will definitely help you get a more youthful appearance but you need to be realistic about what changes will be. Some of the best candidates are individuals experiencing fine wrinkling issues (as long as they do not have brittle skin), augment their lips or looking to improve the appearance of their facial lines.
Juvederm is a safe treatment with some bruising and swelling to be expected. Some side effects can include bumps, itchiness, lumps, redness, and some tenderness. They should subside within a month after your treatment.

There is minimal recovery for a Juvederm treatment but you should avoid strenuous activities, alcohol and exposure to the sun for at least the first 24 hours.
You can use a cold compress to the area for ten minutes every hour to reduce the swelling. It is best not to sleep and to remain in an upright position for four hours after receiving your injection. Sleeping with your head elevated, perhaps with pillows that are propped up, will help reduce swelling for the first night or two.
