Juvéderm® is a dermal filler that smoothes lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face by adding youthful fullness where volume has been lost. It is an exceptionally smooth gel with the consistency of syrup, so it appears very natural when injected. You will look more youthful and refreshed in a way that is not obvious.
Juvéderm® contains the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid of all facial fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that the human body already contains, so no allergy testing is required before receiving Juvéderm® injections.
Dr. Dutton is a skilled injector who understands how to use Juvéderm® (and other dermal fillers) properly as an effective anti-aging treatment without causing you to look as though you have had a cosmetic procedure. You will look more youthful and refreshed in a way that is not obvious.
Benefits of Juvéderm®
- Improve moderate lines, folds, and wrinkles on the face, including nasolabial folds
- Enhance the lips, making them fuller
- Increase the moisture content of your skin
Sometimes, more than one dermal filler is recommended to achieve your desired result. Other fillers include Restylane®, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, Belotero, and Collagen. Some types of wrinkles respond better to BOTOX® injections.
The Juvéderm® Procedure
Juvéderm® injections contain Lidocaine for a slight numbing effect to reduce discomfort during your injections, which are done with a particularly fine needle.
Juvéderm® injections last approximately 6-8 months but have been known to last as long as a year in some patients.
Juvéderm® Injection Recovery
You will need no downtime after Juvéderm® injections. You can go straight home or back to work after your procedure.
Most patients experience some inflammation, bruising, and soreness, however, for a few days. You may apply makeup immediately to cover any bruises, which are usually faint.
Most people find that the slight after-effects during the healing process are mild and well worth the results of a facial filler.
