What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel that acts as a filler for wrinkles that adds volume to the space where the skin sinks in. Juvederm has been formulated through HYLACROSS technology, creating a smooth-consistency filler. The main ingredient in Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in our bodies, so the risk of infection and allergic reaction is minimal. When our expert injectors target the problem areas of your face, they will use a thin, fine needle to inject Juvederm, making the process as painless as possible.

Q: How Many Treatments Will I Need Before I See Results?

A: You only need one session of Juvederm to see visible results. These fast acting treatments are injected directly into problem areas, filling in the volume loss instantaneously. For the best results possible, multiple injections and maintenance is usually recommended.

Juvederm XCQ: How Long Do the Results of Juvederm Treatments Last?

A: Every patient is different, but generally patients can expect Juvederm XC treatment results to last for up to 1 year!

Q: What Is The Recovery Time For Injectable Treatments?

A: Juvederm injections have virtually no recovery time! The procedure is performed during an office visit and once you are injected, you can go back to your daily routine without ever having to slow down.

Q: What if I am not happy with my Juvederm results?

A: Fortunately, hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm can be dissolved using a substance called hyaluronidase on the off-chance the patient is not satisfied with their Juvederm results.

Q: What Side Effects Can I Expect After A Juvederm Treatment?

A: The side effects are minimal because Juvederm is made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid that is found in your body. You may experience some swelling and redness around the injection area, but this will quickly dissipate in a day or two. Any time anything is injected, a bruise can occur. While we do everything to prevent bruising, if a bruise does occur, we have the ability to make it disappear quickly with a pulse dye laser.

Q: Can You Explain Juvederm vs. Restylane?

A: Both Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid gel fillers. They are very similar in nature and are often used to treat the same problem areas. Some believe Juvederm is best for lip enhancement, while Restylane is better for deep lines.

Q: What is the Difference Between Juvederm and Radiesse?

A: Radiesse is a collagen-stimulating filler, while Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid filler. Radiesse is most commonly used for rejuvenating larger areas, such as the hands, chin, and nose, while Juvederm is excellent for lip enhancement and minimizing fine lines.
