You may not feel old and tired, but your appearance can make you look as if you are. The eyes, especially, can affect how you look and how others see you. Dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes can especially cause problems – here is how Juvéderm can help diminish those under-eye problems!
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler. It is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of the human body that helps to keep skin healthy. It can remove dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, and it is also used to diminish lines around the nose and mouth and to give the lips and cheeks more volume.
What are the benefits of Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is injected into the skin with a very fine needle. The procedure can be performed in the doctor’s office and typically takes less than half an hour – many people have it done on their lunch hour and then go right back to work and resume their other normal activities. A numbing agent is used to reduce any pain from the injection. Any side effects patients have are typically very mild and will resolve soon, but may include bruising, redness, discoloration at the injection site, and itching.
Juvéderm is safe and is FDA approved. Another benefit is that you’ll see results right away. The effects of Juvéderm are long lasting – some patients see results for up to a year and a half.
Juvéderm is only one of many injectables to choose from at your doctor’s office. Different injectables give different results, and different injectables may be used depending on what results you would like to see. Your doctor can discuss all of your options with you.
It really isn’t fair how your eyes can make you look tired and older than you are, when you are no doubt in your prime and ready to take on the world! If you are looking for a way to get rid of puffiness under the eyes, Juvéderm may be the answer for you.
