If you’ve been suffering from moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles, especially around your nose and mouth, treatment with Juvederm® can help. It can also be used to correct volume loss in the apples of the cheeks. This procedure is safe and effective, and thousands of patients trust it each year to restore their skin to a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid-based gel formula dermal filler. It is injected into fine lines and wrinkles, which smoothes and plumps skin from the inside out. This treatment can add volume to your lips while enhancing shallow facial contours. The results will leave your skin looking youthful and replenished.
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in your body and plays a critical role when it comes to repairing tissue. It keeps water beneath your skin’s surface, resulting in soft, youthful skin. As you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, which increases facial lines and wrinkles. By injecting Juvederm®, we undo the effects of aging by replenishing the hyaluronic acid in your skin, adding temporary volume.
We inject the dermal filler with a very fine needle, which we insert directly into the facial crease. The treatment only lasts for a few minutes. If you’re sensitive to injection, you can request a topical anesthetic for comfort. This formula also includes lidocaine, which serves as a local anesthetic for added comfort during the procedure, as well as afterward.
Because Juvederm® treatment is minimally invasive, you can return to everyday activities as soon as it’s over. A majority of our patients only require one treatment to receive optimal results. Sometimes results are seen immediately while continuing to improve over ensuing couple of weeks. These effects usually last for up to one year. When one year passes, patients are welcome to return to for a follow-up treatment.
