Juvéderm® is a safe, natural, and long-lasting dermal filler that helps fill in wrinkles, creases and folds and can also be used to plump up your lips. Created by Allergan – the manufacturer of Botox®, Juvéderm works very well with Botox and is often used in conjunction with Botox to maximize your results.
How does Juvéderm work?
Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in your body. Juvéderm is injected into the skin, which lifts up the wrinkle or fold and immediately smoothes them out. It can also be injected to plump the lips.
How is a Juvéderm procedure performed?
Juvéderm is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts with an ultra-fine needle. The procedure is simple and quick, and results are immediate. A topical numbing cream is used 45 minutes before the procedure to minimize discomfort. We exclusively use Juvéderm XC, which contains lidocaine to make your injection even more comfortable.
What areas can Juvéderm be used?
The most popular areas are the lips, nasolabial folds (the crease from the nose to the corner of your lips), droopy corners of the mouth, marionette lines, and the vertical lines around the lips. Juvéderm can also help define the lip borders (no more bleeding lipstick!) and give the appearance of a fuller lip. Lastly, sunken acne scars can be improved with Juvéderm.
How long will the results of a Juvéderm treatment last?
Juvéderm effects typically last 6 months and up to one year, depending on the area. Treatments are usually scheduled twice a year. Evidence shows that having touch-up treatments before Juvéderm has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect.
