Similar to Botox, Juvederm is a safe and effective injection-based filler used to soften deep folds and reduce skin wrinkles in the face. This wonderful and relatively new treatment was approved by the FDA in 2006, and has since been a popular alternative or supplement procedure to Botox.
Naturally occurring in the skin and muscles of mammals, hyaluronic acid is the main ingredient in Juvederm treatments. When turned into a gel and injected into the face or lips, hyaluronic acid is effective in producing a younger, beautiful look. Essentially, it helps to replace the cushion of fatty tissue that we lose as we age and as our skin is damaged by ultraviolet light from the sun. No need to keep frowning! Eliminating frown lines and wrinkles have never been easier. Because of the gel’s smoothness, your skin also feels smooth and natural afterward.

When considering cosmetic treatment of any kind, it is important to look for experience and success. Denver Vein Center and Aesthetic Laser Specialists have decades of experience in providing aesthetic treatments to make you look and feel younger! Juvederm is one of the most popular methods we use. In clinical trials, more than 80 percent of patients rated the treatment to be highly effective in improving their physical appearance.
The non-surgical treatment, like Botox, takes roughly 10 to 15 minutes. A few tiny injections will yield fantastic results within just a few days. There is no recovery time, and no anesthesia is required, although sometimes a topical numbing agent is applied beforehand. The typical treatment lasts 9 to 12 months before a followup treatment is required. As an entirely biodegradable gel, Juvederm doesn’t contain any allergy-causing animal-derived ingredients.
So why choose Juvederm over other aesthetic treatments? Juvederm is the only filler FDA approved to last up to one full year with a single treatment! It is also the smoothest and most comfortable filler on the market today. Other hyaluronic acid fillers are made of granular type gels that have a more bumpy, rough feel to them. Juvederm is completely smooth and is formulated automatically to include lidocaine, a common anesthetic to improve comfort of treatment!
Juvederm is rapidly becoming the most popular aesthetic skin treatment for a reason!
