Juvéderm is the "next generation" of dermal fillers. It is created by Allergan – the same manufacturer of Botox®. Juvéderm provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvéderm is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is also infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. Juvéderm is administered in a smooth-slow injection, allowing your provider a high level of control for individualized, tailored facial contouring to achieve a smooth and natural look. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and the results are practically instantaneous. With Juvéderm you only need one treatment for results that will last for up to a year!
Numbing cream may be applied before the treatment to optimize your comfort during treatment, and Juvéderm now contains lidocaine, a common local anesthetic, that assists to alleviate any discomfort.
Juvéderm is most commonly used to correct smile lines, nasolabial folds (the skin folds that run from the nostril of your nose to the corners of your mouth), and marionette lines (lines formed near the chin). It can also help define the lip border and give the appearance of a fuller lip.
