Juvederm Before and After

As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle. Then maybe we will need dermal filler to correct the facial folds and wrinkles.See Juvederm before and after results from others who already used in this article.

What Is Juvederm?

Juvedermis a facial filler that is injected on the face of a patient. It is used by plastic, dermatological and cosmetic surgeons. It basically reduces wrinkles and soften folds that form on the face. A large percentage of the substance is hyaluronic acid that is usually found in the tendons, muscles and skin of mammals. Juvederm was approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration in 2006 and it is primarily used in the removal of smile lines and lines that form from the nose to the corners of the mouth. It is also used to fill hollow spaces on the face and used as an agent of lip augmentation.

How It Works?

Juvederm is used to improve your lips appearance by adding:

  • Volume
  • Shape
  • Structure

The results of the injection normally last for about 6 months, and then you have to get more injections to reinstate the state of your lips.

Juvederm Before and After Experience

Treatment for lips:

Ollie’s mom gives her Juvederm before and after experience. Her friend went to get the injection first and she liked it. She went and got her lips done in August. Lines had formed on her upper lip and after the Juvederm, they were all gone. She acknowledged that it is not a permanent solution and will probably go back in April, but her lips definitely look better than they did before. Initially, the lips get bruised and they swell making them look bigger, but in a week it was all gone. It is extremely painful so it is better to have your lip fully “dead” before you get the injection.

For fine lines:

Serbina decided to use Juvederm and before going for the Juvederm to correct her fine lines, she did thorough research in the internet. 2 syringes were used for the procedure: ½ for the upper lip and the rest for the smile lines. The swelling was minimal and the pain was not as much. The bruising was also not bad. A touch of makeup covered it up. Here is a picture of Serbina’s Juvederm before and after for fine lines.

Facial filling:

LilMsSunshine had her procedure done by a plastic surgeon who admitted to a complication during the facial filler procedure. Though it is considered rare, when getting the injection there is a possibility of running into a blood vessel. When this happens, 1st a bruise appears, followed by a rash and eventually tiny pus filled blisters appear. This happens because the Juvederm blocking the flow of blood and if it is not treated the results are disastrous. It can result in terrible facial scaring and dead soft tissue. As for LilMsSunshine, the surgeon prescribed antibiotics and medication that helps in circulation.
