What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is an FDA-approved injectable gel filler made of a substance called hyaluronic acid, which provides fullness and elasticity and is found naturally in skin. This smooth gel filler is used by dermatologists all over the world to safely and effectively smooth out and soften moderate to severe lines and folds in the skin, particularly in the face. These wrinkles and folds develop over time from natural facial movements, smoking, aging, and environmental factors such as sun damage. Juvéderm® can be used to smooth out the vertical lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin, also known as “marionette lines,” and the nasolabial skin folds that go from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth, or “smile lines.” The vertical lines that sometimes form above the lips can also be eliminated with Juvéderm®.
Juvéderm® Treatment Procedure
Juvéderm® is injected into the area of the skin needing treatment with a very fine needle, causing very little pain and discomfort. The new Juvéderm® XC formula is infused with lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic for improved patient comfort during treatment. The procedure takes no longer than 30 minutes, and patients may resume normal activity directly following treatment.
Patients who receive Juvéderm® treatment will see their results immediately after the procedure. The facial skin will exhibit instant volume and wrinkles will be virtually eliminated. Some patients may experience minor side effects such as soreness, redness, swelling, firmness, and bumps at the injection site that should resolve in less than seven days. Juvéderm® creates volume and results in a healthy, more rejuvenated appearance that can last up to a year with just one treatment.
