Juvéderm is an injectable gel that is used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm is made out of a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains some local anesthetic to make the injection more comfortable. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that occurs naturally in the human body. Its function is to nourish and hydrate the skin, and to act as a cushioning agent.

What kind of results can I expect?
Adding volume to certain areas of the face is a reliable way to find a younger, yet still natural look. Furthermore, Juvéderm treatment results in a smoother appearance to the skin and face, which is another characteristic of youthful, vibrant bodies.
Patients can expect results with one treatment, and the results generally last about 9 months to 1 year.
What is a Juvéderm treatment like?
A Juvéderm injection is relatively painless, and the added anesthetic reduces the pain potential even more.
Are there any side effects?
Some people experience slight discomfort for a few days after the injection. There may be some pain or tenderness at the site of the injection, which goes away in less than seven days.
Our injection professionals will ask you about your current medications, allergies, pregnancy and other factors that may indicate whether or not an injection is a safe idea.
Why would I get an injection like this?
There are misconceptions about fillers including Juvéderm, like about what they do and who gets them. In reality, the human body, including the face, loses subcutaneous fat as we it ages. Because of this, facial muscles are closer to the skin and eventually create smile lines and crow’s feet. The skin also stretches, further distorting appearance. A Juvéderm injection is meant to restore a more vibrant look to those who are experiencing the beginning signs of aging.
