Juvederm

Juvederm® is wrinkle filler used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.  By replacing lost volume, the hyaluronic acid in Juvederm quickly corrects wrinkles with a simple injection.

Juvederm comes in several different formulas to correct wrinkles of varying severity.  The latest formula, Juvederm Ultra XC, contains lidocaine for a more comfortable injection.

Is Juvederm Right for You?

Juvederm is recommended for patients of all skin colors and skin types, for treatments such as:
  • Facial wrinkles and folds
  • Thin lips
  • Marionette lines
  • Hollow areas in the mid-face

Juvederm Treatment

Placement for Juvederm is determined after carefully evaluating the wrinkles present on your face.  If necessary, areas to be treated may be numbed with a topical anesthetic to make the procedure comfortable.  Using a fine needle and special technique, your plastic surgeon injects Juvederm to correct the contour irregularities present on your skin.

For most patients, the results of Juvederm® last 9-12 months.  You will need touch-ups and repeat treatments to maintain skin volume and wrinkle correction over the years.

What are the possible Juvederm side effects?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are safe and effective when administered by a qualified plastic surgeon. Because Juvederm is biodegradable and doesn’t contain ingredients that cause an allergic reaction in most people, you do not need a pre-treatment allergy test. We will learn about your medical history and ask you some important health questions to make sure Juvederm is a good option for you.

Side effects are usually minor and last fewer than 7 days. You may have some redness and swelling at the treatment sites for a few days, along with mild bruising or skin firmness.
