JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler designed to restore a soft and smooth appearance to the skin. Injected into carefully selected areas of the face, JUVÉDERM® helps to eliminate fine lines and deep wrinkles, and adds volume to collapsed cheeks, sunken temples, and depressed eye sockets.

How Does JUVÉDERM® Work?
The active ingredient in JUVÉDERM® is hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced by the body. The primary function of hyaluronic acid is moisture retention in the skin and connective tissue. As we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid diminishes, allowing skin to sag, wrinkle, and sink.
JUVÉDERM® adds hyaluronic acid to the skin, restoring volume, giving gentle lift to sagging skin, and erasing fine lines, deep creases, and hollow depressions.
What Is the Treatment Process Like?
During treatment, JUVÉDERM® is carefully injected in precise locations to restore volume and address signs of aging.
Treatment with JUVÉDERM® is quick and painless. Formulated with lidocaine for optimal patient comfort, JUVÉDERM® injections take between 15 and 60 minutes to administer depending on the areas being treated and require no downtime afterward.
Are There Side Effects?
JUVÉDERM® is among the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States. This FDA-approved filler enjoys very few side effects.
Possible side effects of JUVÉDERM® treatment include:
- Bruising and Redness
- Lumps, Bumps, and Swelling
- Itchy Skin
- Skin Discoloration
Side effects with JUVÉDERM® are rare, but not impossible. During your initial consultation, we will assess your medical history to determine your candidacy for JUVÉDERM® and cover pre and post-procedure precautions that can help to reduce risks.
How Is Recovery From JUVÉDERM®?
Recovery from JUVÉDERM® is incredibly quick. Most people can resume normal activities right away, though some choose to wait for 24 hours. It may take two or more weeks for bruising and redness to diminish, but these things should subside on their own as your results improve.
JUVÉDERM® enhances the skin’s ability to retain moisture, in turn adding volume to aged areas of the face. There will be some immediate correction following treatment, but full results may take up to 14 days to become obvious.
How Long Will Results Last?
Results from JUVÉDERM® can last for 12 to 18 months. You can maintain results through regularly scheduled touch-ups or simply allow the product to naturally dissipate and the skin to return to its pre-treatment state. JUVÉDERM® treatments do not exacerbate or speed the aging process and will not produce a more aged look if injections are discontinued.
