As people age the skin loses its elasticity. With the injectable gel Juvéderm™ the consistency of the skin is improved. Hyaluronic acid is used in Juvéderm™ and is found naturally in the skin.
Juvéderm™ is physician administered and injected below the skin to smooth the appearance of folds, facial wrinkles, smile lines, and to improve the skin’s volume. The results of Juvéderm™ are excellent and appear very natural.
Recovery time is minimal and there is no requirement for an allergy skin test.
With Juvéderm™ results are immediately noticeable and results can last up to 12 months.
About the Procedure
A very small needle is used to inject Juvéderm™ below the upper layer of skin. Most patients feel a quick pinch during the injection and a topical anesthetic is typically used to reduce discomfort.
The results are visible immediately and are enhanced over the next 24 hours.
