Smooth and Natural Results
Juvederm® is one of the dermal fillers available at our Milwaukee-area practice serving Pewaukee, Waukesha and Brookfield. This injectable gel is infused into the mid- to deep dermis to minimize moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, especially in the face. Typically, our patients find the results of Juvederm® to be smooth and natural looking.
How Does Juvederm® Work?
The key to Juvederm® is hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your body. This acid is important for a variety of reasons. Not only does it smooth and add volume to your skin, but it also keeps your skin hydrated by attracting water molecules. As your body loses its ability over time to produce hyaluronic acid, your skin volume decreases and folds and wrinkles begin to appear. With Juvederm®, you can restore your body's hyaluronic acid, which will improve your skin's structure and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvederm® injections are done in our Pewaukee office and take about 30 minutes. Your skin rejuvenation specialist will use a fine needle to inject the solution under the skin, precisely targeting selected wrinkles and lines. Although the treatment is virtually painless, local or topical anesthetic can be used, if desired. The Juvederm® solution can also be formulated with the local anesthetic lidocaine to reduce discomfort.
As the hyaluronic acid in Juvederm begins to attract water, there will be an initial increase in the volume of tissues under your skin. The gel itself also helps boost the volume. The appearance of the treated area will continue to improve over several weeks. Some wrinkles reappear as the gel is absorbed into the body, although many patients find the results of Juvederm® treatments to be long-lasting or even permanent.
Because it requires no downtime, Juvederm® is known as a “lunchtime procedure," with patients continuing their daily activities immediately. Makeup can be worn to camouflage any redness or bruising in the treated skin. Contact our Milwaukee-area practice today to learn more about Juvederm®.
