What is Juvederm? Juvederm is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. When injected, it lifts, smooths, or plumps the skin for a more youthful appearance.

It is often recommended for:

  • Lip enhancement
  • Eliminating upper lip lines
  • Plumping up gaunt areas of the face (eg. cheeks)

What is Juvederm?

As you grow older, you may begin to notice the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. The good news? For those reluctant to take the surgical route, there are a number of injectable alternatives that can help smooth your skin and help it regain its youthful and glowing appearance.

One of the most popular options is Juvederm, a dermal filler that is made from the naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, and which is used to help restore volume to the skin. This minimally invasive procedure will leave you with impressive and long-lasting results.

To help determine if Juvederm is the right option for you, here are some essential facts about the procedure:

How Juvederm Works

Juvederm is a gel comprised of hyaluronic acid, a sugar-based substance naturally found in your body. Its role is to maintain hydration and act as a cushioning agent for your skin. Once this gel is injected into the treatment area, it will plump up areas of your face that have lost fullness due to age, resulting in a more youthful look.

Juvederm can be used to treat multiple problem areas, including:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Thin lips
  • Undefined facial contours such as cheeks, chin, and jawline

Treatment Time: One of the greatest benefits of Juvederm treatments is that it doesn’t require much time. In most cases, a treatment can be completed in 15 minutes and patients can often return immediately to their daily activities.

How it’s administered: A fine needle will be used to administer the gel beneath your skin, in predetermined treatment areas. Some patients may elect to use topical anesthesia on the area before receiving the injection for greater comfort.

Experience The Wonderful Benefits of Juvederm

When used properly and administered by a trained specialist, Juvederm is an extremely versatile filler that can give you the naturally youthful glow you’re looking for.

Some of the incredible benefits of this treatment include:

  • Minimally invasive and quick procedure
  • There’s no risk of allergic reactions because it’s made from a natural substance
  • Natural and long-lasting results (6 - 12 months)
  • Most patients won’t experience any downtime and can return to their normal schedule immediately
  • It contains a numbing agent to provide greater comfort during treatment

Are the Results of Juvederm Permanent?

While the results of Juvederm are not permanent, and repeat treatments will be required, the effects of this dermal filler can last from 9-12 months, giving you a firmer, smoother, and naturally young appearance for longer than most injectables.

Am I A Good Candidate For Juvederm?

Juvederm is an FDA approved dermal filler that is suitable for all skin types. However, as with all cosmetic procedures, it’s important to discuss your candidacy for the treatment with your skin specialist to avoid any unsafe results.

You SHOULD NOT consider Juvederm if you:

  • Have any known allergies to other dermal fillers or lidocaine (local anesthetic)
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are under the age of 18
  • Are currently taking medication such as blood thinners, aspirin, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, as this could result in prolonged bleeding after a Juvederm treatment.
  • Have recently undergone other skin treatments such as chemical peels, laser, or microdermabrasion.
