What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an injectable gel filler used to smooth and plump up deep facial wrinkles and creases, as well as finer lines like those around the eyes and mouth. Juvéderm is a non-surgical way to address signs of aging, and this filler is particularly noted for its smooth consistency, which helps produce a natural-looking results.
Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid (HA) a natural, complex sugar found in all living cells and is an important component of the skin. HA retains water like a sponge, absorbing 1,000 times its weight. This helps to attract and maintain water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density. Hyaluronic injections have also been shown to stimulate collagen production.
What areas can Juvéderm treat?
- Cheek volume
- Smile lines
- Lip volume
- Lip border
- Chin and jaw volume
- Lines around mouth
How long does Juvéderm last?
Results are instant. You will see an immediate improvement to the treated area. Juvéderm provides results that last up to one year.
Is treatment with Juvéderm painful?
Juvéderm is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Skin Laser Clinic may choose to numb the treated area to further minimize discomfort or we will use Juvéderm products that contain the anesthetic Lidocaine 1%.
What are potential side effects?
Possible side effects are mild to moderate and are relatively short lasting (less than seven days). These may include temporary skin reactions such as redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising, which are easily covered with makeup.
To ramp up your results, you may want to apply a combination of treatments, such as the SoftLift Makeover.
