As we age, we often experience volume loss in our faces. This can make our faces appear more "sunken in," and can cause skin to sag and form folds resulting in a more aged appearance or a tired or sad expression. Facial volume loss can also be a concern of younger people who have lost weight or people who are very fit and have low body fat. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm can help address these common concerns. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in our skin. Hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate (sugar) that attracts water to help volumize the skin.

Juvederm can be used for various areas of the face such as:
  • Volumize the cheeks
  • Plump the lips
  • Treat smile lines
  • Fill fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sunken circles around the eyes
At the consultation, the doctor will determine whether it is safe for the patient to receive the treatment and whether Juvederm will address the patient's concerns. If one is interested in being treated, it is best to avoid aspirin and NSAIDs (ibuprofen) for at least a week before treatment as these medications increase the risk of bruising after Juvederm injections. The results of Juvederm can typically be seen immediately depending on the type of Juvederm used, the location of the treatment and the individual patient, the effects of Juvederm commonly last 9-12 months.

For a consultation and treatment with Juvederm, call Aglow Dermatology today at 212-627-1004.
