JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic-acid-based injectable that can dramatically improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and acne scars, or add volume to the lips. While used most often to reduce nasolabial folds or “smile lines,” this smooth gel injectable can also address lines around the mouth and forehead.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body and plays an important role in skin volume and elasticity. However, over time, hyaluronic acid production slowly decreases, which results in wrinkles and other signs of aging. JUVEDERM® restores lost hyaluronic acid, boosting volume and smoothing the skin. Unlike collagen or fat-based injections, the body absorbs this gel slowly, resulting in sustained effects.
JUVÉDERM® treatment is simple. Because it is made from biosynthetic hyaluronic acid, there is no risk of allergic reaction. Patients are not required to take an allergy test before the procedure.
At the beginning of your 30-minute appointment, we will numb the injection site with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Discomfort is further minimized because JUVÉDERM® is made from an especially smooth gel, and can be administered using a very thin needle. Once the site is numb, JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the treatment sites. Results are evident almost immediately after the procedure.
Patients can return to normal activities right away – no downtime is necessary. Most physicians recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours after treatment. Make-up should not be worn on the day of the procedure, but it is usually safe soon afterward.
