BEFORE & AFTER GALLERY

The best way to determine whether Juvéderm® is capable of giving you the results you desire is to view results.

JUVÉDERM® INFORMATION

Juvéderm® 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).

Juvéderm® products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency. Juvéderm® products are developed using the Hylacross technology to allow a smoother, malleable gel. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. Hyaluronic acid works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.

Some Juvéderm® XC products also contain the local anesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable injection. Juvéderm® Ultra XC and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC both contain 0.3% preservative-free lidocaine and numb the treatment area within seconds. The Juvéderm® Ultra Plus products contain more highly cross-linked formulations for volumizing and correction of deeper folds and wrinkles.

HOW JUVÉDERM® WORKS

Juvéderm® replenishes the hyaluronic acid that has been absorbed into your body over time, helping you achieve a more youthful appearance.

AREAS TREATED BY JUVÉDERM®

  • lines from the nose to the mouth (nasolabial fold)
  • lines from the mouth to the chin (melomental fold)
  • lines above the upper lip
  • frown lines (best combined with Botox Cosmetic)
  • in the lips for volume and definition
  • to restore volume to cheekbones or cheeks
  • in some situations, under the eyes
  • to fill out the backs of the hands and make veins look less prominent

JUVÉDERM® PROCEDURE

All treatments begin with a medical history review and a consultation to discuss your desired results, expectations, and to come up with a plan. We will give you a handout of things to do or avoid after your treatments.

Juvéderm® is injected into the skin in a simple and quick treatment performed by a licensed healthcare provider using a fine-gauge needle. You can either sit or recline during treatment.

The entire appointment should take less than an hour, including time for a consultation.

JUVÉDERM® RECOVERY & RESULTS

After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache and itching at the injection site or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14–18 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.

HOW LONG DOES JUVÉDERM® LAST?

Juvéderm® lasts for different lengths of time in different people, depending upon where it is injected. In areas where there is less movement of the skin such as tear troughs and cheeks, Juvéderm® will last for nine months to one year. In areas where there is more movement, such as the nasolabial folds (smile lines), Juvéderm® tends to last for about six to nine months. The lips have the most movement, and fillers tend to last four to six months in this area.

The results also vary from person to person depending on metabolism, water intake, exercise, vitamins, and various other personal factors.
