Dermatologist Dr. Doris Day of NYC offers Juvederm cosmetic dermatology treatments to her patients.
What is Juvederm
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid gel that is used as a cosmetic dermatology treatment to fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent.
The Juvederm gel is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe wrinkles and folds occur (most often around the nose and mouth).
After the procedure there is minimal recovery or downtime.
- You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas
- Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing.
- One treatment could smooth your lines and wrinkles for up to 1 year! However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
- Risks include bruising at site of injections
