What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler used to add instant volume to facial folds and wrinkles. The smooth, clear gel keeps working beneath your skin to promote healthy cell growth. The filler can be added to lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and chin and can also be added to the lips for subtle volume.  

For treatment, the Juvederm formula is injected into folds and creases using a very thin needle. If you are worried about discomfort during treatment, a topical numbing cream can be applied beforehand. In just one, quick treatment session, you can achieve effective, lasting results for added volume and a younger appearance.  The Juvederm family of fillers also includes Voluma, Vollure, and Volbella.  These fillers are used to fill the cheeks, midface, and lips.

Who is a Candidate?

Those who are unhappy with common signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles can benefit from treatment with Juvederm. Because Juvederm utilizes hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction. Those who experience thinning lips can also benefit from Juvederm to add subtle volume while keeping a natural look.

Results and Recovery

There is little to no required downtime after treatment with Juvederm fillers. Patients might experience some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site for a day or two following treatment. Results of Juvederm treatment can be immediately noticeable with more benefits over the course of a few weeks. The results typically last six to twenty-four months before the substance is absorbed by the body and a touch-up session is needed.
