Juvederm® is the only hyaluronic acid filler FDA approved to last up to one year with initial treatment. It is a safe and naturally based dermal filler that smooth’s facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds). These are the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount in your skin. The lack of hyaluronic acid causes your skin to lose structure and volume, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® also works on Marionette Lines and vertical lip lines.
The overall effect will give you a more youthful healthy look. The nasolabial lines will be virtually gone creating a beautiful youthful result. Juvederm® will also help enhance your lips reducing small lines and restore fuller healthier lips.
How it works
Juvederm® can be performed in a brief office visit. This non-invasive injection takes 15 to 30 minutes with no down time. Before your treatment try to avoid the following:
Aspirin, Ibuprofen & over the counter vitamins a week prior to your appointment
Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to appointment
No ibuprofen or aspirin 48 hours before or after treatment
Note: no alcohol for 24 hours after treatment
No increased blood pressure (i.e. sauna, hot tub, exercise, cardio) for 24 hours post treatment (Helps prevent bruising)
It is recommended that make up not be applied until 1 hour after treatment to allow the skin to breathe
Avoid excessive facial expressions and strenuous exercise for 4 hours after your treatment. (This helps the product to “settle” without disturbing the location where it was injected.)
Do not rub or massage the area for 24 hours unless instructed to do so
There is a risk of bruising which is only temporary and can be covered up with make-up
Apply an ice pack or cold compress to the treated area to help reduce redness and swelling (can last from one hour to 48 hours)
You will immediately look younger and more refreshed
Wrinkles and smile lines will be reduced
Lips will be more full and voluminous
Acne scars will be made less visible
