What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is an inject-able gel which is derived from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar in the body. When hyaluronic acid combines with water found in the body, the result is an immediate restoration of volume in the injected area, while maintaining a healthy, hydrated appearance. The smooth consistency of the gel allows for a soft, natural look after the treatment is complete.
Areas most commonly treated with Juvéderm® are:
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Lower face
- Tear troughs
- Temporal fossae
Will it work for me?
Absolutely! Due to the cross-linked nature of the molecules in Juvéderm®, the product is able to remain in the body for nine months to a year. Over time, the filler is absorbed by the body, returning the treated area to its original, pre-injected appearance.
There are few, minor side effects, including: redness, edema, tenderness and slight bruising at the injection site, which will generally disappear anywhere between 3-14 days.
It is important to note that the product is removable post injection if required.
The procedure itself is relatively painless thanks to Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which is directly built into the product. Although the Lidocaine is quick to numb the treatment area, ice may be used to further ease any discomfort throughout the procedure.
