This is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that is a dermal filler, consisting of mainly hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring material found in the human body. This is why Juvederm® along with other fillers are usually tolerated well, unlike procedures that introduce foreign substances into the body. Approved by the FDA in 2006, Juvederm® is one of the most popular non-invasive procedures in the United States.
Why Choose Juvederm® ?
As people age, volume is lost, and our faces show signs of stress as well as normal “wear and tear” — Juvederm® fills in the areas of volume loss and will make you look more vibrant and younger! If you have severe facial creases, marionette lines, or facial wrinkles you might benefit from Juvederm UP, XC ® or Juvederm Volbella XC®. Together our expert team at Sight of Beauty will determine the most appropriate treatment to “fulfill” your individual needs!
What areas can you inject and improve with Juvederm®?
Primarily the cheeks, lips, and area around the mouth, specifically:
- nasolabial folds, aka “smile lines” that extend from the sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth,
- the “marionette” lines, which surround the mouth
- the vertical lip lines, which appear above the lip
- lip volume and cheek volume
Who can benefit from Juvederm®?
Everyone, Yes! Men and Women, – however you might not be a good candidate for Juvederm® if you have an active infection of any kind at the injection site.
Can Juvederm® safely be combined with other fillers?
Juvederm® can safely be combined with other fillers such as Restylane and Radiesse; the experts at Sight of Beauty will discuss all options during your consultation.
Does Juvederm® Hurt?
There is little pain associated with the injection, but 10 minutes prior to the treatment a numbing cream will be applied to the area of the face being treated. During the treatment, the area will be massaged to ensure the proper distribution of the hyaluronic acid gel, and ice will be applied on and off to the area immediately following for your comfort.
What are common side effects with Juvederm®?
Redness, tenderness, lumps or bumps, minor pain, may occur as well as itching, which will subside within 1-2 weeks.
How long does Juvederm® last?
The effects are immediate, and the duration depends on which Juvederm® product is used, as well as the area of the face treated, generally anywhere from 6 months to well over a year. Over time, the hyaluronic acid filler dissolves and is excreted by the body, and your face will gradually assume its previous appearance.
