How Does Juvéderm Work?
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable gel that instantly lifts and smooths wrinkles and folds while adding volume in the areas you need it most. HA is a natural sugar compound found in your body that hydrates and promotes healthy skin. As we age, our skin begins to break down HA, which leads to unsightly signs of aging. Once injected, Juvéderm increases volume in precise areas to produce a more vibrant, fuller, and younger look.
What to Expect with Juvéderm
During your Juvéderm appointment, a fine needle is used to inject Juvéderm into predetermined areas based on your cosmetic concerns. Juvéderm contains lidocaine, a type of anesthetic, to increase your comfort with these injections. Your consultation and treatment should take less than one hour to complete, and there is minimal downtime required with Juvéderm. Some patients return to their daily activities right after treatment.
After treatment, you will notice an immediate improvement in facial wrinkles and folds and lip enhancement. Most patients only need one treatment to achieve their ideal results, with their new look lasting around nine to 12 months. Although Juvéderm temporarily improves your facial features, touch-up appointments may be recommended to maintain these remarkable results.
The Side Effects of Juvéderm
Similar to other hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvéderm may cause redness, pain, lumps, swelling, firmness, bruising, and itching at the injection site. Although rare, most side effects are mild and last less than one week. Our dermatologists will inform you of all side effects and aftercare instructions during your consultation.
