JUVÉDERM® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration, that’s injected under the skin to lessen the appearance of smile lines and nasolabial folds (the parentheses around your mouth that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). JUVÉDERM instantly restores volume and smooths away facial wrinkles for a natural look and feel, and studies show superior results compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.
JUVÉDERM is also particularly effective for smoothing perioral lines, commonly called “lipstick lines” or “smokers lines”, which are vertical wrinkles that form above and below the mouth. The injections can be administered quickly and last up to a year, and side effects are typically mild but can include swelling, redness, tenderness, and other mild discomforts.
JUVÉDERM Lip Fillers
JUVÉDERM also offers gel injections for lip augmentation, which make the lips appear more full and plump.
What to Expect With JUVÉDERM
The JUVÉDERM injection process takes only about 15 minutes, and the results are immediate. The recovery or downtime is minimal, which means you can step into our office for treatment and get right back to regular activity.
Deciding if JUVÉDERM is Right for You
Your Skin Care Provider can help you determine if JUVÉDERM should be a part of your skin care regimen. They can also help you with the frequency of injections and what other treatments can be added to give you optimal results.
