Juvederm is an injectable gel filler for injection into the skin to help correct age-related volume loss, restoring fullness. It is composed of hyaluronic acid which is a substance found naturally in the body.  Juvederm is for injection into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin, especially around the nose and mouth.

Juvederm gives you the power to defy gravity.  It does a remarkable job filling areas on the face that have lost volume and are creasing into wrinkles and furrows. It creates a younger appearance by restoring lost facial volume.

Dr. Smith will ease Juvéderm under the skin through a syringe directly into the areas requiring improvement. The treatment area will first be numbed with cream and ice. The series of small injections will be done with a very fine needle to make your treatment more comfortable.  You will see results immediately and will see good correction seen after two weeks.

What Areas Does Juvéderm Treat?

Juvéderm is typically used to fill in:

  1. Parenthesis Lines: The smile line creases from the sides of your nose down to the edges of your mouth
  2. Nasolabal Folds: The long lines along the side of your nose
  3. Marionette Lines: The long lines below your mouth on both sides of your chin
  4. Vertical Lip Lines: The lines above and below the lips
  5. Lips: It is a natural plumping agent to give lips fuller volume
  6. Chest Furrows: The vertical lines on the chest that form from heavy breasts or sleeping on your side

No Downtime

Side effects with Juvéderm are negligible and very mild. You may experience some redness, soreness or bruising at the site of injection. Sometimes you may feel very mild bumpiness which will smooth out after a couple hours.  You can return to work the same day as your treatment.
