Juvéderm® is an extensive family of dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid. This substance can be found naturally in the body where it’s responsible for important functions in the skin, like moisture retention. When injected as a gel substance under the skin, it can create volume. Juvéderm can effectively fill in wrinkles and folds around the mouth, sometimes called parentheses lines or smile lines, as well as other areas of the face that need extra volume.
You’ve got many options when it comes to dermal fillers, and our team can professionally recommend the best one for you during a consultation. You should be prepared to describe what you hope your results will be like so that our team can determine whether dermal filler treatments can help you achieve them or whether you should consider surgical options. We can also ensure you know what to expect during and after your Juvéderm treatment.
Our team’s first step is always to ensure our patients are comfortable and relaxed during treatment. That’s why Juvéderm treatment begins with a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area before injection. Juvéderm also contains lidocaine for further comfort during and after the injection process. Our injectors then use a very small needle to make a series of injections in a specific pattern at the wrinkles around the mouth. Your best results might require multiple vials, which our team can discuss during your consultation. Injectable treatments are usually quick, and you can immediately return to your normal schedule.
There’s no downtime associated with injectable treatments, and you’ll see results immediately after your treatment session. Like any injection, you can expect some mild bruising and swelling at the treatment site, but this usually subsides within the day. Our team normally recommends massaging the injection area after treatment to make sure the product stays smooth and distributes correctly. Juvéderm usually lasts for up to one year, after which you can repeat this treatment or begin looking at your surgical options.
