Juvederm is a long-lasting gel that, once injected into the
skin with an ultra-fine needle, lifts and adds volume to the
areas being treated. Similar to one of the body's own
natural substances (hyaluronic acid), it is a completely
safe treatment. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm simply
supplements the body's age-depleted hyaluronic acid to
plump-up the lip or to raise the skin and 'fill in' the
particular wrinkle being treated.
With Juvederm, fine lines, wrinkles and folds are immediately filled and corrected. Mouths too, can become fuller and lips more clearly defined. Treatment usually takes only 15-30 minutes.
JUVEDERM - FAQ
Can this kind of technique be used to treat fine lines and delay the appearance of wrinkles?
Yes. Fine lines are the result of the deterioration of the dermis. Dermal filling techniques using Juvederm implants are intended for all ages and can prevent and treat the formation of wrinkles.
What will my skin look like without additional injections?
The correction will be degraded gradually until the skin returns to its initial appearance. Juvederm injections are generally renewed 2 to 3 times in the first year then 1 to 2 times annually thereafter.
Will the injection hurt?
People vary in how they feel about the injections. Most are unconcerned, however although Juvederm contains its own local anaesthetic, we also offer where appropriate a local anaesthetic injection prior to administration, which we find tends to make the whole experience more comfortable for people.
