Hyaluronic acid is lost as you age. Sunlight and various other factors can eliminate the amount of hyaluronic acid that is in your skin as well. As your skin loses this acid, you begin to lose structure and volume. This is what creates the various wrinkles and folds that you are unhappy with. Juvederm is capable of replacing all of that hyaluronic acid, so that the volume is brought back and facial wrinkles and folds are eliminated.
There are two different versions of Juvederm – one with and without lidocaine. Lidocaine is used within the injection to help minimize the overall amount of pain. The reason that it is used is to simplify the injection process without having to add another form of anesthetic. For people who are allergic to lidocaine, there are various options to still take advantage of a Juvederm injection, though another form of anesthetic will need to be used to minimize the pain from the injection.
Regardless of which version is chosen, there can be various aspects that everyone will deal with. This can include bruising, swelling, and redness following the injection. The average person will not have to deal with these side effects for more than a few days as they will go away naturally. Some people may require a prescription drug to help with the redness or irritation.
