Understanding JUVÉDERM® and Its Rejuvenating and Enhancing Benefits
- What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a facial filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA) – a naturally occurring sugar found in your skin. It combines with water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles and enhance lips. The smooth gel provides instant results that are long lasting and natural looking.
- What areas can I treat with JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® smoothes unwanted lines, restores natural contours and lost fullness in your cheeks, and enhances your lips to give you a youthful, natural and refreshed-looking appearance.
JUVÉDERM® is used for facial rejuvenation and enhancement. It can:
- Soften smile lines
- Accentuate and restore lost fullness in your cheeks
- Enhance the size and shape of your lips
- Restore the contour of your jaw line
The most appropriate lines to treat with JUVÉDERM® are those that are described as static – the lines you can see when your face is still. JUVÉDERM® can also be used to enhance your lips or accentuate cheeks for soft, subtle results that leave you looking your best
- What will a treatment with JUVÉDERM® accomplish?
JUVÉDERM® smoothes away unwanted lines, restores natural contours and enhances lips to give you a smooth, natural and refreshed appearance. Most patients need only one JUVÉDERM® treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing or volume enhancement with results that last up to one year. Actual treatment results may vary from one person to another.
- How long does the treatment usually take?
The injection process is quick and easy and takes only about 15-60 minutes, depending on the areas treated. You’ll also need to allow time to consult with your cosmetic doctor prior to treatment.
- Is a treatment with JUVÉDERM® painful?
JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Because JUVÉDERM® is also available with pain-reducing lidocaine, the whole injection process is a more comfortable experience.
- How long does JUVÉDERM® last?
The unique formulation of JUVÉDERM® is clinically proven to last up to one year3 with one treatment.
- What are the possible side effects?
JUVÉDERM® is generally well tolerated. Possible side effects are mild to moderate in nature and generally last less than 7 days. They may include temporary skin reactions such as redness, tenderness and bruising which may be covered by makeup.
