Juvederm is an FDA approved injectable filler used to add fullness to the skin, smoothing out moderate to severe lines, wrinkles and facial folds giving the patient a refreshed, youthful appearance. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based product used for increasing fullness in the face and lips. Juvederm offers a broad range of alternatives that can be tailored to patient’s individual needs. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body and draws water to the skin while lifting to create a fuller, more youthful appearance. Juvederm injections are a quick, relatively painless treatment to create fuller more accentuated lips and add volume and contour to the face. Many of the Juvederm products contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during the treatment.
Juvederm is effective in treating:
- Moderate lines and wrinkles
- Hollowness under the eyes
- Thinning lips
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Chin hollowness

How long do the effects of Juvederm last?
The effects of Juvederm injections are estimated to last six to 24 months, depending on which product is used, however, this will vary with each patient and the effects can be extended with regular treatments.
Will I see the results immediately post injections?
Yes, you will begin to see the results of your filler immediately after injections. There is no downtime and patients will be able to return to work right away, however, there may be some redness and slight bruising. Applying icepacks to the injection sites will help to relieve redness, swelling and bruising.
Are Juvederm injections a good alternative to surgery?
Juvederm injections are not an alternative to surgery, but it is a great way to prolong the need for surgery or used in conjunction with surgery. Filler injections work well with surgery to give patients a more refreshed youthful appearance.
