Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). As you age, sunlight/UV exposure, environmental and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your skin. The lack of HA causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm is a temporary hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is used to replace volume, help eliminate fine lines and fill in wrinkles, especially around the mouth. It has a very smooth, gel-like consistency and provides natural-looking results that can last 6-12 months*. Hyaluronic acid fillers have an excellent safety profile and have been used in cosmetic procedures for over 20 years.
Juvederm is injected into the skin with a fine needle, also referred to as blunt-tip cannula method, after the area to be treated has been numbed with topical medication. The treatment takes less than 30 minutes and may result in some swelling or bruising. Most patients find that the downtime with any injectable treatment is minimal, averaging around 48 hours* and able to be covered up with make-up if necessary.
