Description: Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made out of hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvederm is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. They are especially effective on smile lines and "parentheses" (nasolabial folds) that run from the bottom of the nose to the sides of the mouth. Juvederm may also be used for lip enhancement and to augment deep hollows or "tear troughs" of the lower eyelids.
What to Expect: Treatment takes only 15-30 minutes with immediate results and no downtime. A local anesthetic may be used if needed. Side effects such as swelling or bruising are minimal and should fade within a few days.
Expected Final Outcome: You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need only one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. Deeper wrinkles, however, may require more than one syringe for best results. Results typically last about 9-12 months. Follow-up appointment is recommended at 2 weeks to determine if any touch ups are necessary.
