Juvéderm

Juvéderm is an injectable gel that instantly smooths moderate to severe parentheses lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth. Its effectiveness has been proven time and time again, delivering real results that last up to 1 year.

What does it feel like?

Juvéderm is injected under the skin with a minimally invasive needle. Juvéderm contains lidocaine, a numbing agent, which enables the application to be as painless as possible.  With our patients we apply topical numbing cream to the face if it is injected in the lines around the lips or nasolabial folds.  If you use Juvéderm in the lips we use a dental block to help numb the lips and ensure little to no discomfort.

How does it work?

Juvéderm is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin, which may give the appearance of a smoother surface.

When will I see the results?

The results for Juvéderm can be seen immediately after treatment. However, there is usually some swelling due to the numbing agents that may be used and from the injury to skin caused by the needle injecting the product.  Usually any additional swelling or bruising will go away within a week.
