Juvéderm® Cosmetic Injections – Birmingham

Wrinkles, deep lines, and sunken in areas of the face can leave you looking much older than you really are or than you feel. Though many will turn to facial cosmetic surgery for their needs, Juvéderm® presents a fine alternative with comparable results and no downtime whatsoever. Getting Juvéderm® injections at our Birmingham area practice may be the best option for you and your needs. Let’s look at how Juvéderm® injections work and what to expect from treatment.

About Juvéderm® Injections

Juvéderm® is a kind of cosmetic dermal filler that is derived from hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, which means no foreign or animal-based substances are involved. That reduces the risk of allergic reaction to the injectable. Juvéderm® is an ideal treatment for filling in those deep lines and major wrinkles of the face, and even for lip augmentation purposes as well.

Candidates for Juvéderm® Injections

The best candidates for Juvéderm® are people who are in generally good health who are looking to reduce the prominence of facial wrinkles. Since Juvéderm® can be used to enhance the lips, it’s also a good option for people who have thin lips but would like a poutier, fuller look. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should NOT undergo Juvéderm® injection treatment as it can potentially affect a baby or nursing child. During your visit to our practice serving Birmingham, we will see if Juvéderm® injections are the right option for you.

Risks and Benefits of Juvéderm®

The risks of Juvéderm® injections tend to be very few and side effects minor given that Juvéderm® is hyaluronic acid-based. Some of the common side effects that people experience after Juvéderm® treatment include itchiness of the injection site, swelling, redness, soreness, and bruising. These are all temporary conditions and will usually abate within a day or two after treatment. The benefits of Juvéderm® injections include improved appearance, reduced prominence of lines and wrinkles, and no recovery time required after treatment.

Results of Juvéderm® Treatment

The results of Juvéderm® usually last between six months to a whole year. Results can vary from patient to patient, and the injection can alter the duration of results as well. Generally, most patients come to our practice serving Vestavia Hills for repeat Juvéderm® treatment after six months.
