Juvéderm Injection

Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).

Procedure:

A tiny needle is used to inject a small amount of the smooth dermalfiller into the skin to "fill" the wrinkles and folds.

Results:

With Juvéderm™ the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there's minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor's office for treatment and step right back into your life.

Frequently asked questions:

What is Juvéderm™?

Juvéderm™ is a "next-generation" filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm™ injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.

How long does it last?

The effects of Juvederm™ usually last six to nine months, but sometimes more or sometimes less depending on skin type, the area treated, the volume injected, and the technique used for the procedure.

The outcome can be optimized and made to last longer with a follow-up procedure a few weeks after the initial treatment. This will be decided during your free consultation with your treating physician.
