JUVÉDERM® Injectable Filler
Skin rejuvenation treatments with Juvederm® are quick, simple, comfortable, and non-surgical. The procedure will have you looking and feeling instantly refreshed. It will add volume and definition to facial features while keeping your appearance looking natural, symmetrical, and well-balanced.
Whether you are interested in enhancing facial features or refreshing and rejuvenating your appearance,
Juvederm® can be used to:
- Soften smile lines
- Restore lost fullness in your cheeks
- Enhance lips
- Contour your jaw line
Juvederm® can instantly refresh and rejuvenate your appearance by smoothing unwanted lines, restoring natural contours and replacing lost cheek volume. Juvederm® is placed beneath wrinkles and folds to ‘fill in’ or ‘plump up’ the depression. The most appropriate lines to treat with Juvederm® are those that are described as static lines you can see when your face is not moving (like smile lines). The most commonly treated areas include smile lines (or nasolabial folds), mouth lines (or marionette lines), smoker lines (or vertical lip lines), cheeks or chin.
Juvederm® injections can also be used as facial fillers to enhance some of your facial features, such as lips and cheeks. With subtle and strategically-placed injections, Juvederm® will contour and define lips and cheeks, at the same time keeping your appearance natural-looking, symmetrical and well-balanced. Clients can expect Juvederm® to remain soft and take on the characteristics of the surrounding tissue. Due to the safe and compatible materials used in Juvederm®, no pre-testing of any kind is required.
Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a consultation with our medical director with a strong knowledge of skin health and beauty, as well as over 20 years experience in creating beautiful aesthetic outcomes for patients of all ages. Our medical director will recommend a custom treatment program based on each client’s medical history and needs. As the required volume varies from client to client, a price quote will be provided at the time of consultation.
A treatment with Juvederm® will take roughly between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the areas being injected. The treatment is comfortable thanks to the patented formulation of Juvederm® XC (extra comfort) that includes lidocaine – a localized pain reliever. After the treatment, the appearance of lines on your face will be reduced, your lips will appear fuller and more defined, and your cheeks plump. You will leave looking naturally refreshed – so that everyone will notice, but no one will know!
There is minor inflammation or swelling from the treatment as a result of the expansion of facial tissue. This normally resolves well within 24 hours but has been reported to last as long as 48 hours for some clients. Some patients may also experience some tenderness at the injection site. Most clients resume normal activities only a few hours after receiving treatment. Application of ice intermittently for a short period after the treatment will help reduce any swelling. You should avoid activities that will strain your facial features for 48 hours following treatment as much as possible. For example, avoid activities such as strenuous laughing, using a straw, and chewing gum.
The duration of the correction achieved with any injectable filler is dependent on the type of filler used, and the area being treated. Temporary fillers such as Juvederm® usually produce results that last anywhere from 6-12 months.
Juvederm® should not be administered to pregnant women or nursing mothers.
