Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume. Juvederm is a form of hyaluronic acid using different filtration and molecule manipulation techniques. Using a dermal filler like Juvederm is a safe and effective way to replace the HA you have lost. Dr. Schwartz uses Juvaderm to instantly restore and rejuvenate your skin’s volume, enhance your lips and define the contours of your cheeks, chin and jaw line.
For example, by using Juvederm Dr. Schwartz can quickly smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Dr. Schwartz can also use Juvederm to correct or create lip lines, treat asymmetrical (uneven) lips, and provide lip augmentation thereby creating a beautiful, young-looking frame around your teeth.
The effects of Juvederm usually last six to nine months, depending on skin type, the area treated, the volume injected and the technique used for the procedure.
