Juvederm is a minimally-invasive treatment with no downtime that can effectively help you turn back the clock on your skin.
Juvederm is a dermal filler known for its smooth, long-lasting application. This solution has a hyaluronic acid base, the same substance produced by the body to support underlying skin structure and provide hydration to the skin.
As the body ages, it produces less hyaluronic acid, leading to loss of elasticity in the skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm restores support to the underlying skin structure, smoothing creases from the face for a younger, fresher appearance.
Juvederm is a versatile cosmetic treatment that can be used to address many signs of aging, including:
- Lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin (marionette lines)
- Nasolabial folds that go from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Vertical lines that appear above the lip line
- Add volume to lips for a sexier pout
- Add support to under eye area by treating tear trough
The Juvederm line also includes a new formula, known as Juvederm Voluma™ , which is effective in replacing lost volume in areas like the cheeks and jawline. This smooth solution re-sculpts facial contours for a younger profile. Juvederm Voluma™ is the only FDA-approved filler to correct age-related volume loss in the mid-face region.
About the Procedure
Juvederm is an injectable treatment that delivers the hyaluronic acid solution via a very fine needle. Juvederm solutions typically contain lidocaine to ensure a comfortable procedure for the patient. The length of the treatment depends on how many areas are to be treated and how many injections are required. Patients may return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some experience mild swelling at the injection sites, which usually subsides within a few hours.
Recovery and Typical Results
Results from Juvederm can be seen right away. Juvederm is a relatively long-lasting dermal filler, with some patients going up to one year before a touch-up treatment is required. Results can be extended by having a single touch-up treatment a few weeks after the original procedure.
