JUVÉDERM® is an injectable gel that instantly smooths moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Its effectiveness has been proven time and time again, delivering real results that last up to 1 year or more depending on the product selected.
Facial lines can be caused by repetitive muscle movement (Dynamic) or through a loss of tissue elasticity (Static). Juvederm treats Static wrinkles by filling in facial volume. The dermal filler is composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the human body, and a building block for healthy tissues. HA works by holding in water at the injection site, plumping and cushioning the area. Juvederm is FDA-approved to treat Nasolabial Folds (between the nose and mouth) and Marionette Lines (below the corners of the mouth), as well as along the cheeks and jawline. *
Who is a good candidate for Juvederm Injectable Gel?
The ideal candidate for Juvederm is an individual frustrated with sagging tissues of the face. Those experiencing a lack of facial volume or hollow areas under the eyes and cheeks, from the normal aging process or illness, will benefit greatly from a Juvederm treatment. The ideal candidate will also be in generally good health, and have realistic expectations for the noninvasive treatment.
How is Juvederm Injectable Gel applied?
Juvederm is only injected by a skilled, experienced provider. A session will take roughly 30 minutes from start to finish, in our luxurious office-suite. Since Juvederm is relatively pain-free, no anesthesia is required. Patients generally describe feeling a quick pinch as the injections are administered. There is no downtime required after a Juvederm treatment, and no limitations on activities; patients go back to their usual routine immediately. There may be minor bruising at the injection site, but if this occurs, it will resolve over the next couple of days.
Juvederm injections provide patients instantly visible results. Patients will be able to see their full results immediately after the treatment. Over the course of the following several months, the skin will gradually continue to improve, as the body’s natural Collagen stores increase. The benefits of Juvederm are long-lasting, normally remaining for between eight and 10 months. Some patients do not require a repeat treatment for over a year. The dermal filler is considered safe and effective, with very little risk of complication. On the rare occasion discoloration, lumps, and infection may occur.
