Juvederm is an injectable facial filler that reduces the signs of aging. Most commonly treated areas are:
- Facial fine lines and wrinkles
- Nasiolabial folds (Marionette lines, laugh lines)
- Thin lips
- Hollow cheeks
Juvederm 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. Results last for up to one year and with simple follow-up treatments, it last even longer.
Because Juvederm is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment*, there is minimal recovery or downtime (and the results are instant!).
Dr. Jejurikar typically applies a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area before he administers your injections. Next, he will inject Juvederm under the skin of your skin where wrinkles and folds occur to replace lost skin volume. This procedure takes about 30 minutes and has minimal recovery time. The results are instant and you will see just how fast and effective Juvederm treatments are.
There are possible mild to moderate side effects, such as:
- Temporary injection-site reactions such as redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps.
- Transient swelling and bruising can occur.
