JUVEDERM

JUVEDERM is an injectable dermal filler used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, increase skin volume, and augment lips. JUVEDERM is a clear gel containing hyaluronic acid (HA) that increases moisture and boosts collagen growth in your skin. There are multiple formulations of JUVEDERM designed for different areas of your face.

How JUVEDERM treatment is performed

JUVEDERM is a non-invasive in-office treatment that takes about 15 minutes. Your dermatologist will begin by applying a topical anesthetic cream to your treatment area. Injected anesthesia may also be used, especially for lip augmentation which can be more painful. The JUVEDERM XC formulation contains built-in anesthetic called lidocaine to minimize pain.

Your doctor will use a fine needle to inject the JUVEDERM gel underneath your skin in order to fill the soft tissue of the dermis or the dense inner layer of your skin beneath the epidermis. This process adds volume and diminishes wrinkles and folds. The amount of injections and their placement will vary depending on your treatment.

Recovery and results

You’ll notice immediate results after your JUVEDERM treatment, but it will take up to a week to see your final results. You may have some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort depending on your injection locations. Lip augmentation has more noticeable swelling and discomfort compared to facial injections. Results can last one to two years depending on the formulation of JUVEDERM that was used.
