Lady With Smooth SkinWho doesn’t love to laugh? Laughing really can do wonders for our mental and even physical well-being; however, we don’t often want the proof to remain on our face. While we enjoy those moments that make us laugh we don’t enjoy the laugh lines it leaves behind. If you are dealing with wrinkles around your nose and mouth that make you feel self-conscious, Juvederm in San Antonio is a non-surgical way to enhance your features while reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable dermal filler that treats lines and wrinkles of the face.

What does Juvederm treat?

Juvederm targets moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth (also known as laugh lines or marionette lines). Juvederm has also been clinically tested and works on all skin types.

What should I expect from my treatment?

Using a thin needle, your San Antonio dermatologist will inject the Juvederm filler into the wrinkles and facial folds you are looking to target. This filler will add volume to the treatment area to smooth away any wrinkles and lines.

What are the benefits of Juvederm?

The biggest and most obvious benefit is that you’ll have younger-looking skin that boasts fewer wrinkles. Also, this treatment offers instant results, unlike other cosmetic treatments like Botox that may take weeks to fully notice a change.
You can also get natural-looking results without needing cosmetic surgery. That’s what makes Juvederm a great option. Plus, most Juvederm treatments can be administered in only 15 minutes, making your office visit brief.

How long do the results last? Can I have repeat treatments?

Most patients experience more youthful skin for about a year after their treatment. However, touch-up injections are often recommended in order to maintain your new look. However, less filler will be necessary for these repeat treatments.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects are possible with any treatment; however, most of these side effects are mild and will go away in a couple of days. Some side effects include redness, tenderness near the injection site, itching, lumps, and bruising.
If you’re looking to give your face a mini makeover without spending tons of time and money, Juvederm can help. Call Stone Oak Dermatology today to find out more or to schedule your next appointment.
