Frequently Asked Questions about Juvéderm:
- What exactly is Juvéderm? Juvéderm is an injectable gel that works to restore lost volume to the skin, while eliminating the appearance of severe facial wrinkles and folds. Composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in our skin, Juvéderm can be used on various areas of the face, including the cheeks and lips.
- What will a Juvéderm injection entail? Juvéderm injections require no anesthesia, and are administered in a doctor’s office. The targeted area will first be numbed, and a fine needle will be used to inject Juvéderm underneath the skin. This gel then fills in lines and wrinkles, visibly restoring volume to the skin. These injections will take about 15 minutes to complete.
- Are any side-effects associated with Juvéderm? The side-effects associated with Juvéderm are generally mild and temporary. Possible side-effects may include redness, swelling, skin discoloration, and bruising.
- How long will my results last? This depends on the individual patient. In most cases, patients should expect results that last up to 6 months after their initial injection. Patients often choose to maintain their results by scheduling return visits.
- Is Juvéderm right for me? Patients with a history of severe allergies or are currently pregnant are not considered good candidates for this filler. The best candidates for Juvéderm are otherwise healthy patients who wish to make improvements to their skin without undergoing a more invasive treatment.
