Juvéderm®

JUVÉDERM® is a smooth product that enables your tissues to hold more water and provides a natural soft look and feels smooth as well. If you are over 18 and thinking of facial enhancement and want a smooth look and feel JUVÉDERM® may be right for you. It contains a sugar (or polymer) produced from bacteria that occurs naturally in our tissues and is produced naturally by cells specifically for the human.

Where Is JUVÉDERM® Used?

Most commonly, JUVÉDERM® is used in the creases around the lips. Non-FDA uses that are commonly sought are improving the fullness of the lips and around the eyes to reduce the wrinkles. It can also be used to shape the eyebrows and nose.

Things to Consider Before Undergoing Injections With Fillers

JUVÉDERM® may be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic or Sculptra® Aesthetic

By combining these two products, facial hollowness and diminished lip volume can be addressed at the same time as fine lines.

Results last up to six months

For this reason, we encourage patients to schedule follow-up appointments at the time of the initial treatment.

JUVÉDERM® is hypoallergenic

Because JUVÉDERM® does not contain animal proteins, the risk of allergic reactions is low, and no skin test is required prior to treatment as with other dermal fillers.

How Is JUVÉDERM® Injected?

Filler injections typically are simple and quick. Usually, each session lasts 20 to 30 minutes. Our surgeon may numb the area with a local or topical anesthetic before injecting the JUVÉDERM®, which appears as a clear gel. JUVÉDERM® yields immediate results, and you will be free to resume your normal activities after treatment.

Risks of JUVÉDERM®

Complications related to JUVÉDERM® are all related to the injection of the product, rather than the product itself. Risks of JUVÉDERM® injections include:

Discomfort

Redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness, and moderate pain may occur after treatment. These effects will disappear within a few days.

Disappointing or unnatural result

Especially when JUVÉDERM® is used to augment the lips, the product can yield an unnatural, asymmetrical, or otherwise disappointing result.
