Juvederm in Long Island, NY
Your body loses hyaluronic acid as you get older, and one of the results is lines and wrinkles. Juvederm® replenishes hyaluronic acid to soften lines and wrinkles. For men and women in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York, Eunice E. Park, MD, a dual board-certified plastic surgeon and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology) specialist, offers Juvederm® treatments.
What is Juvederm®?
Hyaluronic acid is important to skin appearance because the substance attracts and binds with water. This process keeps the skin hydrated and maintains volume. As we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, leaving our skin more prone to developing lines and wrinkles. Juvederm® treatments restore the levels of hyaluronic acid to soften lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Juvederm®
Dr. Park may recommend Juvederm® for:
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Horizontal lines on the forehead that are caused by reduced hyaluronic acid
- Nasolabial folds that develop between the nostrils and corners of the lips
- Marionette lines that begin at the outer corners of the lips and extend downward
- Lip enhancement
Benefits of Juvederm® treatments are:
- No downtime
- Treatment takes less than one hour
- Initial improvement due to gel formulation
- Gradual improvements as hyaluronic acid binds with water
Am I a Candidate for Juvederm®?
Juvederm® can be administered on adults, but the treatment is most often used for patients between 30 and 65 years old. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should wait to have their Juvederm® treatments. Certain medical conditions and medications may preclude you as a candidate.
What to Expect from Juvederm®
Juvederm® is a gel formulation that is injected with a fine needle. Multiple injections are made along the wrinkle to produce a consistent correction. You may have slight bleeding from the point where the needle is injected as well as tenderness, swelling and bruising. The results may last four to six months. Dr. Park may recommend maintenance treatments every four months to extend the anti-aging results.
