What is JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM is an injectable dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid (HA), which is formulated to mimic HA that is found naturally in the body. Because of this, JUVÉDERM provides a remarkably natural look and feel. Most often, JUVÉDERM is injected into certain areas of the face to combat signs of aging and/or to add volume to naturally flat, thin, or asymmetric features.
Where can JUVÉDERM be used?
JUVÉDERM is a uniquely versatile dermal filler that can be used across most areas of the face and neck. Three common uses for JUVÉDERM include:
1. Facial lines and wrinkles: When injected into lines and wrinkles on the face, JUVÉDERM creates a smoother, younger look. JUVÉDERM is best suited to treating static lines and wrinkles, such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
2. Thin lips: More and more people are turning to JUVÉDERM injections each year as a way to plump up naturally thin lips or lips that have lost volume with age. The flexibility and natural texture of JUVÉDERM make it an ideal filler for the lips.
3. Jawline: Patients with weak or asymmetric features, like a bumpy jawline, setback chin, or crooked nose, can actually enhance their look with JUVÉDERM fillers. This is a common approach for patients who may not be ready for cosmetic surgery or want to “preview” what their surgical results may look like.
How long does JUVÉDERM last?
JUVÉDERM results typically last for about 9 –12 months before repeat injections are needed. This can vary from person to person depending on how fast the body metabolizes the filler and other individual factors. If you begin to notice your wrinkles becoming more visible or your features falling flat sooner than you expect, your next set of JUVÉDERM injections can be administered earlier.
What if I don’t like my JUVÉDERM results?
One of the most compelling features of JUVÉDERM and other HA-based fillers is that the filler material can be dissolved with another injectable product: Hyaluronidase. However, the vast majority of patients are more than satisfied with their filler results and do not want to have them dissolved. In fact, many patients want to “go bigger” the next time.
Prior to your injections, we will discuss your concerns and goals, and determine the most appropriate amount of JUVÉDERM to use initially, allowing you to gradually adjust to your newly enhanced look.
