Juvederm®

juvederm

Juvederm® is an FDA approved injectable filler recommended for use on moderate to severe lines and folds around the mouth and lips.

Where do I use Juvederm®?

I use Juvederm® on nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and the small yet noticeable lipstick or vertical lines that form around your lips.

How does it work?

Juvederm® is a pliant gel based filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring complex sugar that once injected into the dermis, binds with water underneath your skin, immediately adding lost volume and smoothing out wrinkles and folds.

Hyaluronic acid not only adds volume but attracts water from surrounding tissue increasing fullness in areas affected by aging. As we age, we lose both fat and elasticity in our skin, and Juvederm® restores the fullness we associate with younger skin.

Why is Juvederm® Better?

Unlike some other injectable fillers, Juvederm® lasts longer, between nine months to a year in most patients and because it's pliant, it's feels and looks more natural than previous generation fillers. And it's completely biodegradable and is gradually reabsorbed into your body.

Does it hurt?

Although the fine needle eliminates most of the discomfort, many patients prefer to have a topical or local anesthetic to block any pain and reduce the anxiety. Patients say it feels similar to a pinprick.

When will I see results?

Patients will see immediate results but in order to maintain these benefits, you'll need to plan for maintenance injections as the Juvederm® is naturally reabsorbed into your body.

How long is the recovery?

There is no downtime with Juvederm® so patients can resume normal activities as soon as they leave our office. Some patients may experience minimal side effects such as redness, swelling, or pain near the injection sites, but these will subside within a week. We always advise our patients to avoid the sun!

Step 2: Come for your visit

When you come in for your appointment, we begin by talking about the facial areas you'd like to improve and your personal ideal results. Then, we prescribe the combination of treatments needed to reach this goal. These treatments are then administered on the spot. There's no need to plan a separate visit or to make any special arrangements for the day you get your care. Our treatments require no down time. After our short visit, you can return to your normal, productive day!

Step 3: Return for touch-ups

One week after your initial treatment, we meet again to discuss the results. If there are any areas that require touch up, we treat those areas during this visit. Then, we discuss how to maintain your results and we make a plan for the future care of your fresh new looks!
