The Juvederm collection of fillers are injectable gels made from modified hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. Using a fine needle, the provider injects the smooth gels under the skin to lift and contour cheeks, smooth deeper wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth, as well as plump lips.
- DOES IT HURT?
Any discomfort from needle pricks is minimized through the use of a topical anesthetic.
- HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Again, this is an in-office, non-surgical treatment that takes as little time as lunch.
- WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are instantaneous. Patients report continued satisfaction with cheeks up to two years, nasolabial folds and lines around the mouth up to one year, and the same for lips. Results will vary according to the individual.
- ARE THERE CONTRAINDICATIONS?
There are safety considerations but these are best discussed with your provider during a pre-treatment consultation.
