What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler that helps replace lost facial volume to restore a younger, smoother complexion. It contains a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found in the skin that gives it volume and elasticity. When injected into fine lines and wrinkles, JUVÉDERM® diminishes and erases them to give a natural look. Depending on the specific JUVÉDERM® dermal filler, it treats different areas of the face including the cheeks, lips and

What Happens During JUVÉDERM® Injections?
During an appointment for JUVÉDERM® injections, the filler is injected into the targeted area(s). At this point, it attracts water and other nutrients to rehydrate the area as well as add volume by boosting collagen production. JUVÉDERM® is effective at smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, adding volume to hollowed out cheeks, and correcting other age-related skin imperfections.
With JUVÉDERM®, no anesthesia is needed for the administration of JUVÉDERM® injections unless patients request a numbing cream. Depending on the type of JUVÉDERM®, several injections may be required where the skin imperfections are located. Patients typically notice a difference in their appearance immediately after the treatment and watch it improve over time.
There is no real preparation for JUVÉDERM® injections. In fact, if time allows, it is possible to receive treatment immediately following the consultation.
It is common for patients to see an immediate difference in the skin, although the results improve over the following weeks. Most patients only require one to two treatments spread out a few weeks apart. JUVÉDERM® results last up to a year.

Because JUVÉDERM® treatments are specifically tailored to each patient’s needs, the cost varies.
