Juvéderm is one of the most popular injectable products available as it is a versatile treatment for many patients. Whether you see signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss or are unhappy with the shape or size of your lips, nose, or cheeks, Juvéderm injections are a simple, temporary, and effective treatment which requires no downtime.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a dermal filler with a hyaluronic acid-based formula. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and produces a plumping and firming effect in the skin. The product has a smooth and gel-like consistency, which makes it ideal for adding volume below the skin to fill out wrinkles or for use in non-surgically augmenting the lips or other areas of the face.
Who is a Candidate for Juvéderm Injections?
Most patients with lost volume or wrinkles or those who wish to augment their lips, cheeks, or nose without surgery make good candidates for Juvéderm. Like most treatments, it’s important that you are generally healthy overall before you have Juvéderm injections. If your skin is damaged, including excessive sun damage, it may be recommended that you try other treatments. Your candidacy can be determined during a complimentary consultation.
What Happens During a Juvéderm Treatment?
During your Juvéderm appointment, your injector will first determine the correct injection site and the amount of product that will be required to achieve your ideal results. Juvéderm contains lidocaine mixed into the formula, so topical numbing is not necessary. Injections only take about 15-30 minutes to complete on average. After this is complete, your injector will likely massage the area to ensure the product is evenly distributed into the treatment area and to reduce the chance of swelling.
How Long Does Juvéderm Last?
Juvéderm is not permanent, as the body will naturally and safely metabolize the product over time. Most find that Juvéderm results last between six months and two years. Juvéderm injections can be repeated to maintain your ideal results if you choose. Your injector can recommend a plan for repeating and maintaining Juvéderm during a consultation or your initial injection appointment.
