Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid created in a lab. It is available to patients in the United States who desire a non-surgical way to lift, plump, and smooth certain areas of the face. Juvederm corrects fine lines/wrinkles, restore lost volume (nasolabial fold) and enhance or restore fullness of the lips.

Juvederm treatments address signs of aging referred to by experts as age-related mid-face volume loss, or when the cheeks become flat over the duration of the lifespan. This treatment adds volume to the skin’s surface so that cheeks appear lifted and contoured. Juvederm was designed to smooth out deep lines and wrinkles to provide a younger and more natural-looking smile you can be proud of. Juvederm is also used to restore plumpness to the lips if they have thinned with age.

Are the Chemicals Used in Juvederm Safe?

Juvederm fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that is found naturally in the body. This FDA approved dermal filler holds water at the injection site, allowing the area to appear fuller and smoother. Various studies have shown that the chemicals used in the Juvederm fillers are safe and effective.

How Long Do Results From Juvederm Last?

The injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used in Juvederm provide results that last anywhere from nine months to a year or more following treatment. While follow-up treatments are often needed to maintain the results, most people require smaller injections during repeat procedures than were administered at the initial treatment.

Patients benefit from their expertise and enjoy a natural and youthful appearance following treatment.
