Curious if this treatment is right for you? Look no further. Here is everything you need to know about JUVÉDERM and skin rejuvenation.
What is JUVÉDERM? How does it work?
JUVÉDERM is an injectable filler treatment that restores youthful volume to the face. The key ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body. HA supports connective tissue and stimulates the production of collagen. Each JUVÉDERM treatment session takes between 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.
What issues and areas can JUVÉDERM treat?
JUVÉDERM comes in different formulations that specialize in different areas of the face. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA, for example, is specifically designed to add volume to the cheeks. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA works best for augmenting the lips and softening fine lines around the mouth. Overall, the JUVÉDERM product line is great for fading the signs of aging and plumping up your skin.
Do JUVÉDERM injections hurt?
No, JUVÉDERM is not a painful treatment. Like with any injection, patients may experience a mild amount of discomfort while the product is being injected. But our fillers include an anesthetic called lidocaine to help numb the area and make the process as comfortable as possible.
How long does JUVÉDERM last?
The longevity of your JUVÉDERM treatment depends on the specific product and the location of the injection. Lip injections using JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA can last up to a year, although many patients enjoy a touch-up session 9 months after their treatment. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA uses a specially formulated gel that can give cheeks extra volume for up to 2 years. Each patient’s body is unique and will process the product at slightly different rates.
Does JUVÉDERM affect pregnancy?
There have been few extensive studies on the effect of injectables during pregnancy. However, we recommend that both doctors and patients carefully consider the risks and benefits before undergoing treatment. We typically advise patients to wait until after giving birth before receiving JUVÉDERM. This is the safest option for both mother and baby.
There are many different dermal fillers, each with its own unique uses. But JUVÉDERM is an excellent way to enjoy reliable results and take years off your appearance.
