If you’re ready for anti-aging rejuvenation with Juvederm from Prive Plastics, read on for what to expect.
What Is Juvederm?
Cosmetic injectables, also known as dermal fillers, are used by healthcare professionals to reduce the appearance of fine lines, soften wrinkles, and add volume to the face. These treatments are a great option for those wanting to look younger without undergoing plastic surgery, and without the lengthy recovery period associated with it. Injectables are quickly becoming a popular way to achieve anti-aging benefits.
Juvederm is an assortment of cosmetic injections created to give your face a more youthful and revitalized look. By using a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally a component of healthy skin and collagen production, Juvederm immediately provides results. How long the effects last vary depending on the type of Juvederm used and the areas treated, but can range from 9 to 24 months.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body, mainly in the connective tissues and fluids surrounding joints. Around 50% of the HA in a person’s body is in the skin, which is responsible for keeping skin hydrated and plump. However, as we age, this HA decreases, leading to signs of aging such as dryness, thinness, wrinkles and folds. To combat this, HA injectables can be used to replenish moisture in the skin and topically it can be used to treat wounds, ulcers, burns and bed sores. Research has also suggested that injected HA can help to reduce knee pain caused by osteoarthritis.
What Signs Of Aging That Juvederm Can Address?

What Can I Expect From Juvederm Treatments With Prive Plastics?
When you receive fillers, the process begins with a conversation with our experts at Prive Plastics to make sure you receive the correct treatment for your aesthetic goals. You should feel comfortable discussing your desired results with Dr. Wu, and she will be happy to go over the anticipated results. If Juvederm is the best treatment for your target area, the actual procedure lasts a few minutes. The side effects of dermal fillers are rare but very mild. These include redness, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. Discomfort or tenderness lasts only a few days and is usually treatable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
After your appointment, you can hit the road and return to your day without major downtime. While recovery time varies with each patient, you can resume most activities immediately, but it is generally recommended to avoid strenuous physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan and ask questions if you have any before you schedule your injection appointment.
