Patients ask, “How safe are Juvéderm injections?”
The aging process leads to facial changes. We gain lines and wrinkles and lose volume across our cheeks and lips. Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox and Juvéderm, offers injectable products to help patients look as young as they feel. Located in Montclair, NJ, Dr. Jeanine Downie and Image Dermatology P.C. offer Juvéderm injections for patients who want to restore volume that has been lost through the natural aging process. The result is a regained natural, youthful appearance without the risks of surgery.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a collection of FDA approved injectable fillers. Using hyaluronic acid, the product adds volume to various areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body. It brings moisture, nutrients, and volume to the face. This building block of the skin breaks down over time leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles. When injected under the skin, Juvéderm fills in the targeted lines and wrinkles and adds volume or contours to give patients natural, long lasting results.
During your appointment with Dr. Downie, she will ask about your medical history, experience with dermal fillers, and your anticipated outcomes. This helps determine which product to use, how much, and where to inject it. It only takes a few moments as the product is injected under the skin. The results are immediate. You can leave the office with restored volume. Juvéderm injections do not require downtime but your doctor may recommend avoiding physical activity or rubbing your face. Because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, there is little chance of a negative reaction. Mild side effects such as swelling or bruising may occur but should subside within a week.
