Juvederm® refers to one family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers intended to provide a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance found in your body. It can be effective for plumping thin lips and is often used for shaping and filling of the lips. It is also used in filling facial creases between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), and for correction in the jowl area (marionette lines). Hyaluronic acid can also be effective for some surface wrinkles and concave scars, under and in the forehead as well as contouring.
Cosmetic injectable fillers such as Juvederm® do not stop the aging process, and are a temporary treatment. No commonly used injectable filler today offers permanent change. Tissue fillers can be a good option if you are physically healthy, and have a mild to moderate degree of facial aging. The length of time that a Juvederm® treatment may last depends on the specific area of injection, the quantity and the rate at which your body metabolizes the product.
Results are visible immediately and most patients return to their normal routine on the same day as their procedure, depending on the treatment received. Injections with Juvederm® often result in temporary swelling after the procedure. The amount of swelling can be limited by following specific instructions that you will receive.
Injectable fillers may help delay the need for more invasive procedures, such as a facelift, brow lift or other procedures. Many people who get Juvéderm are also interested in having another facial treatment—something like a laser treatment, a chemical peel, or microdermabrasion.
Not every “wrinkle filler” is right for every wrinkle. It is important to have your treatment conducted by an experienced and board certified physician such as Dr. Lynch.
