What makes JUVEDERM different from other dermal fillers?

It also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel.

What is hyaluronic acid?

What is cross-linked hyaluronic acid?

“Uncross-linked” hyaluronic acid in its natural form is in a liquid state. “Cross-linking” is the process through which hyaluronic acid is made into a gel product that can be injected into the skin for long-lasting results.


How is it used in treatment?

The dermal filler is injected into the skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in and augment the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) and “marionette lines” (oral commissures).


What will treatment with JUVEDERM injectable gel accomplish?

Treatment helps to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. And one treatment could smooth your lines and wrinkles for up to 1 year.


Is treatment with JUVEDERM painful?

Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency the gel allows our practitioner to administer it easily and smoothly. And,it is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Our practitioner may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.


How long does treatment usually take?

The injection process itself takes only about 15 minutes. You'll also need to allow time to consult with our practitioner prior to treatment.


Does the correction last forever?

No, it is absorbed into the patient’s body over time. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.
