JUVÉDERM™ is an injectable prescription gel that gently reverses signs of aging that can revitalize your youthful appearance by reducing:
- Facial fine lines and wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Thin lips
- Loose skin
It can also:
- “Plump up” the lips,
- Sculpt the cheeks
- Restore a youthful oval shape to the face
JUVÉDERM™ is made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body that works with collagen, which gives volume and support to the skin. Because it not an animal-based product and is highly bio-compatible, no pretreatment testing is needed.
JUVÉDERM™ comes in three formulas optimized for the depth of the area being treated. Results last for up to one year and with simple follow-up treatments, it last even longer.
Because JUVÉDERM® XC is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment*, there is minimal recovery or downtime (and the results are instant!).
Anesthetic may not be needed prior to treatment since JUVÉDERM® XC contains lidocaine, a type of anesthetic, so you will feel less discomfort during your treatment.† 1 Dr. Jejurikar may also decide to apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area before he administers your injections. Next, he will inject JUVÉDERM® XC under the skin of your skin where wrinkles and folds occur to replace lost skin volume. This procedure takes about 15 minutes and has no recovery time. The results are instant and you will see just how fast and effective JUVÉDERM™ treatments are.
There are possible mild to moderate side effects, such as:
- Temporary injection-site reactions such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps.
- JUVÉDERM® is not for people with severe allergies.
