JUVEDERM ® may be the solution a patient is looking for if they have a dry skin tone. JUVEDERM ® is an FDA approved injectable gel skin filler that will help restore hydration to a patient's face and smooth out those laugh lines and fine wrinkles that develop as a person ages.
How JUVEDERM ® Works on Dry Skin
Dry skin develops when the natural moisture that the skin produces is lost. When this happens, the subtle lines and wrinkles that develop will suddenly take on a deeper, more pronounced appearance. JUVEDERM ® replaces the hyaluronic acid that the skin has gradually lost over time. Those wrinkles and folds are rehydrated and become less noticeable almost immediately. The patient's skin will no longer have a dry and wrinkled appearance. JUVEDERM ® is injected just under the skin, right at the wrinkle site, improving only the areas where the patient needs it most.
JUVEDERM ® is a procedure that will usually take only 15 minutes to complete from start to finish. There is no downtime and very few restrictions are placed on the patient after the procedure. The patient is only asked to restrict their exposure to exercise, sun and alcoholic beverages to avoid swelling, redness and itching at the injection site. Side effects are very rare with JUVEDERM ® . Any side effects experienced will usually clear up within seven days.
