Juvéderm® in Columbus, OH
Lines and deep creases around your mouth are the result of lost hydration in the skin. In the Greater Columbus area, Downtown Dermatology offers Juvederm® treatments to restore hyaluronic acid and help you look younger.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a non-surgical, injectable product that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is naturally found in young skin. As you get older, your skin produces less of the substance. HA plays an important role in young skin because it attracts and binds with water that maintains fullness and volume. The area around the mouth is prone to developing deep creases and lines as HA levels diminish.
If you have deep creases and lines around the mouth, you may want to consider Juvederm® treatments that offer the following benefits:
- Works with your skin to attract and bind with water
- Naturally restores volume to reduce creases and lines
- No surgery required
- No downtime
- Results last up to 12 months
Where Can Juvederm® Be Applied?
Juvederm® is FDA approved for treating wrinkles and creases around the lips, nose and mouth. These signs of aging are most often referred to as marionette lines and parenthesis.
How is Juvederm® Administered?
The product is a gel formula that is injected into the skin with a very small needle. Juvederm® is thicker than other products that treat the same area, so you may feel a slight pressure as the product enters the layers of skin. Most patients are able to remain comfortable during the treatment, but we can apply a topical numbing agent if needed.
Juvederm® Procedure Preparation
Your Juvederm® treatment will take less than one hour. All you need to do is schedule a time for the treatment.
Juvederm® Procedure Recovery
You will see a noticeable improvement immediately after the Juvederm® treatment. The area will continue to improve as the HA in Juvederm® attracts more water to your skin. You may have some minor symptoms around the injection sites, such as tenderness, slight bleeding, and bruising.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
Juvederm® treatments are considered elective by your medical insurance. As such, you are responsible for the cost. Payment can be made by cash, check, major credit card or CareCredit® financing.
