JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers are smooth-consistency gels capable of restoring volume to skin and minimizing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, mainly on the central area and lower face. Each member of the JUVÉDERM® family of dermal fillers is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps regulate volume and hydration for youthful suppleness. Since the skin naturally produces less hyaluronic acid as we age, the resulting lack of moisture causes it to dry out and have a more wrinkled and weakened appearance.
What Are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a safe and effective dermal filler, making it an ideal non-surgical option for women and men who want to address the severity of their facial wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds that stretch between the sides of the nose and corners of the mouth. Unlike many hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, which have a granular consistency, JUVÉDERM® is smooth, which allows for easy injection and natural-looking, balanced results that are visible right away.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra, one of the dermal fillers we offer, allows for versatility in contouring and volumizing. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus, another form of the injectable, is effective at correcting deeper and more severe wrinkles.
There are dermal fillers for every type of fine line, allowing for a completely personalized treatment tailored by your injector to meet your needs. The results from these dermal fillers can make you look naturally younger and refreshed for up to a year or longer.
JUVÉDERM® is also the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler to be proven safe and effective for persons of color.
JUVÉDERM® Procedure Details and Recovery Time
Injections take approximately 15 minutes to administer, and JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers require minimal recovery time. For the first 24 hours following a treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and the consumption of alcoholic beverages. This will help minimize the risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the dermal filler injection sites.
Some mild, temporary side effects—such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps—may occur after a JUVÉDERM® dermal filler session, but these usually clear up on their own within a week. Any swelling at the injection site can be minimized with an ice pack for a brief period. We will tell you when makeup may be applied after your treatment.
Many patients see an improvement right away in the treatment area and only need one dermal filler injection session to achieve their optimal results. Other patients find that touch-up sessions are required. Schedule a Consultation
