What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a dermal filler: a hyaluronic acid-based injectable treatment that supplements the body’s natural hyaluronic acid (which diminishes with age) to help restore structure and volume in aging skin. A remarkably improved, more youthful look can be achieved with even just one session. Using innovative Hylacross™ technology, Juvéderm gels are versatile and offer a smooth, malleable consistency for enhanced results.

Key Benefits of Juvéderm

  • Smooths lines and wrinkles and adds soft, natural volume
  • Smooth gel for a soft, natural consistency
  • Treatments are quick and convenient
  • Minimal discomfort during and after treatment
  • Contains lidocaine for comfortable treatment
  • Immediate results
  • Very little downtime and side effects are rare

Restore Your Skin with Juvéderm: How it Works

Young skin looks fresh, plump, and supple due to a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which supports healthy collagen and overall skin structure and volume. As the body ages, natural hyaluronic acid production slows down and the skin starts to lose that fresh, supple quality. Lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin develop soon after. When injected, Juvéderm replenishes the lost hyaluronic acid in the skin and restores a more youthful, fresh appearance by plumping up the skin from underneath — thereby smoothing lines and wrinkles.

What Happens During Treatment?

Before the Juvéderm injections are administered, we will cleanse and prepare your skin. The injections are delivered to the mid to deep dermis beneath the top layer of your skin. Juvéderm is formulated with lidocaine, a safe anesthetic that creates a more comfortable treatment experience. The treatment time is typically 10-15 minutes. Although it varies, most patients require one to two syringes of Juvéderm per treatment.

Downtime and Results

You’ll be able to go back to your regular day following your Juvéderm treatment. Common side effects are bruising, swelling, bumps, red skin, itching, and/or firmness around the injection sites. We recommend avoiding sun exposure, heat, alcohol consumption, and exercise for 48 hours after treatment. Although some results will be immediately visible, results are finalized at two weeks.
