JUVÉDERM® is a non-surgical, healthcare professional-administered treatment that can generally be performed in as little as 15 minutes (depending on the areas treated) with minimal recovery or downtime.
JUVÉDERM® products consist of Hyaluronic Acid and most types include Lidocaine to provide a more comfortable treatment.
Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar that helps maintain facial fullness and elasticity in the skin, plays an important role in the way our skin looks, feels and functions. Hyaluronic acid retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight. This helps to hydrate and moisturize our skin, improving overall appearance.
As the skin ages and is exposed to environmental pollutants and ultraviolet rays, the cells lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid. As a result, this causes wrinkles to form and our face to lose definition, balance and its natural shape.
JUVÉDERM® is clinically proven to last up to 1 year, depending on which product your doctor recommends. Results are seen immediately after your treatment.
As with any medical injection, there is a risk of side effects. Your doctor will provide you detailed information prior to your procedure.
