A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Juvederm is an over-the-counter dermal filler medication that effectively treats wrinkles, face lines, and skin folds without requiring a prescription. It is administered as an injection and can also be injected into lips with a lip augmentation procedure. Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, which helps to retain water at the injection site and gives a plumping effect that makes the skin appear smoother. It's important to note that the results of Juvederm injections are temporary, and most people will require a reinjection within 9 months to 1 year of the initial one.
Juvederm injections are placed into the mid-to-the-deep dermis layer of facial skin and are always administered by a cosmetic medical professional. You should not attempt to self-administer this dermal filler injection.
The active ingredient in Juvederm is Hyaluronic Acid Gel.
Juvederm gel injections must not go into blood vessels because of the risk of blood vessel blockage.
The injection may cause temporary discomfort or even stinging pain during administration.
Any swelling resulting from an injection is normal and is not a cause for concern. Use an ice pack or cold compress over the injection site if needed to reduce swelling.
Individuals with any history of severe allergies or anaphylaxis may not be suitable for using Juvederm and should obtain a doctor’s approval before proceeding to buy Juvederm online. Patients with excessive scarring or skin pigmentation disorders will also consult with a doctor or dermatologist before starting on Juvederm.
Avoid extensive sun or heat exposure, strenuous exercise, or alcohol consumption for 24 hours after injection.
It is best if women refrain from applying makeup to the face for several days or up to a week after each Juvederm injection.
No significant drug interactions between Hyaluronic Acid and Rx medications have been established, but if you have concerns, you may want to speak with a dispensing pharmacist and tell them of the medications you are currently using before you buy Juvederm.
Juvederm side effects may occur, and some users may experience redness, pain or tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps or bruises, itching, or discoloration. If you experience any side effects that become unbearable or worsen, it is recommended that you stop using the product and consult a dermatologist for alternative skin wrinkle reduction treatments.
