- Cheek sculpting
- Filling deep lines and folds
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that rejuvenates your joints and tissue. With age our body produces less of the substance, reducing the elasticity of skin and increasing wrinkles.
Juvéderm® is not made from animal products, so there is little or no risk of allergic reaction. You do not need pre-treatment testing when you use Juvéderm®.
Juvéderm® comes in three different formulas, making it very versatile. Each formula is optimized for different depths and applications.
In addition to youth restoration, Juvéderm® can be used to sculpt and reshape your facial features. Lips can be plumped, cheeks augmented, and your entire face can be brought into balance. The possibilities are endless, and all without surgery.
Like all injectable fillers, Juvéderm® is temporary. The benefit of temporary results is that you are not committed. Your results can be fine tuned to your liking. Results of your initial treatment will be about six to nine months, but we can extend the longevity of treatment with a simple follow-up a few weeks after your first session.
Juvéderm® is a youth-restoring skin treatment that does not require surgery and has virtually no recovery time. The treatment itself takes about 15 minutes.
You may experience some mild discomfort, redness, and swelling which will subside within a few days of your injections.This is generally less than with other injectable fillers, and some people see no swelling at all. You will need to avoid sun exposure and strenuous activity for at least 24 hours.
