WHAT IS JUVEDERM?
Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). It is also used for lip augmentation.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Modified HA is the main ingredient behind JUVÉDERM®. Getting treated with JUVÉDERM® helps add volume to different areas of the face without surgery while also temporarily restoring the volume loss beneath the surface.
Types of Juvederm we offer:
Juvederm Voluma - This injectable gel is designed for deep injection for augmentation of the chin region to improve the chin profile and the cheek area, designed to add volume beneath the skin's surface, which provides lift and contour.
Juvederm Ultra: The original Juvederm formula, this is an injectable gel that temporarily adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips. JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is also approved for smoothing and correcting moderate to severe parentheses lines, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth), in adults.
Juvederm Ultra Plus: Juvederm Ultra Plus corrects moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the parentheses lines or "smile/laugh lines" around the nose and mouth, also known as nasolabial folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, which may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
Juvederm Volbella: Juvederm Volbella injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines (lines around the mouth), often called lipstick lines, vertical lip lines, or lip wrinkles, in adults over the age of 21.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT EXPERIENCE LIKE?
The actual treatment takes 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.
When will I see results?
How long does it last?
Results may last one year to two years, with optimal treatment and depending on the formula used.
How painful are Juvederm injections?
There may be some discomfort during and after the injection. Juvederm is injected directly into the skin with a fine needle. Juvederm products contain the local anesthetic lidocaine to help lessen discomfort during the injection, or the physician may choose to numb the site prior to injection. You should discuss these options with your physician prior to the procedure.
Are there any reasons I shouldn’t receive JUVÉDERM® injectable gel fillers?
Do not receive JUVÉDERM® injectable gel fillers if you have a history of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), or if you are allergic to lidocaine or the proteins (Gram-positive bacterial proteins) used to make hyaluronic acid (HA) in JUVÉDERM® injectable gel fillers.
