Juvederm® in the Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs Area

Juvederm is injectable dermal filler that was approved for the treatment of wrinkles by the FDA in June 2006. This filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring complex sugar that boosts the elasticity of the skin to produce a supple and smooth appearance. Juvederm treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. For example, nasolabial folds, those deep lines that often extend from the corners of the mouth to the nose may be treated with the injection of Juvederm.

Benefits of Juvederm

People who benefit from Juvederm injections are those individuals with visible wrinkles and skin depressions or minor facial scars, such as acne scars. With the passage of time, the natural hyaluronic acid in the body becomes depleted. Since Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, an injection of the product helps supplement the hyaluronic acid in the body, leading to an improvement in the appearance of the skin. Dr. Sofonio, a board-certified surgeon, offers Juvederm injections to residents of Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, CA.

Juvederm Procedure

When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Sofonio will analyze your facial appearance and skin tone to determine the extensiveness of your wrinkles. Based on the result of this analysis, he will recommend the best solution tailored to your condition. Generally, Dr. Sofonio will inject the transparent Juvederm gel into the mid-to-deep dermis of your face, with the aid of a syringe. The dermis is the layer of skin with blood vessels, connective tissue, sweat and oil glands, and nerve endings. Juvederm injection administration typically lasts less than 30 minutes, depending on the extensiveness of the wrinkles.

Post-Treatment Care

Juvederm is a minimally invasive procedure that results in virtually no downtime, allowing you to resume your usual activities right after treatment. Common occurrences following treatment include some redness and tenderness in the injection sites. Repeat sessions may be necessary before individuals with deeper wrinkles will see the desired results.

Juvederm Results

Following a complete Juvederm treatment, you should see visible improvements in the correction of undesirable conditions such as frown lines, acne scars, smoker’’s lines, minor facial scars, and other similar conditions.
