Juvéderm® is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used to provide nine months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm® products are a smooth consistency gel and are developed using the hylacross technology to allow a smoother, malleable gel.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body, which functions by holding water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother appearance to the skin. Most patients require one treatment to achieve their desired results.
Juvéderm® is injected into the skin, and some contain a local anesthetic, lidocaine, to help ease discomfort. Your physician may also choose to numb the site before the procedure. You should discuss your various options during your consultation. Within the first 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure and alcoholic beverages.
Patients should inform their physician if they are on any medicines or pregnant. The ideal candidate for Juvéderm® has realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. If you’d like to restore your face to a more youthful appearance, Juvéderm® may be right for you!
