Do you wake up after a full night’s sleep but when you look in the mirror you look exhausted because of dark circles and puffiness under your eyes? Are people always asking you whether or not you are feeling well or ask if you are tired? The dark circles under your eyes may be nothing more than a cosmetic nuisance, but you can banish those dark circles with Juvéderm.
How Does Juvéderm Work?
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm are a safe and effective non-surgical treatment for removing dark circles under your eyes and improving your youthful appearance. Juvéderm uses Hyaluronic Acid, a natural substance found in the human body that helps provide nutrition for the skin and hydrates the skin by helping it hold water. It also provides cushion. Juvéderm mimics this naturally occurring substance to almost instantly removes dark circles without any resulting puffiness or swelling. The result is a smooth and natural look that helps you feel better and look younger.
Benefits of Juvéderm
Juvéderm injections only take about 15 minutes, and most people are able to return to work immediately. It’s something you can get done on your lunch break. In addition to treating dark circles under your eyes, Juvéderm is a popular and effective injectable for restoring volume in the cheeks, enhancing lip volume, and smoothing out the creases around the nose and mouth.
Does the Juvéderm Procedure Hurt?
Juvéderm is injected under the skin with a small needle, adding volume deep within the areas surrounding the nose or mouth. The gel formula contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, to prevent patients from experiencing pain during treatment. Rarely, a patient will experience minor swelling or have an allergic reaction.
