JUVEDERM® is an FDA approved injection that can give skin volume and smooth and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
How does JUVEDERM® work?
Your skin contains hyaluronic acid, which naturally hydrates. Over time, age and exposure to sunlight reduces hyaluronic acid (HA), causing your skin to lose its volume. JUVEDERM®, the first HA gel of a smooth consistency, replaces the hyaluronic acid in your skin and fills in smile lines around your mouth (also called parenthesis) and wrinkles and folds located all over your face. JUVEDERM® is effective for both men and women.
How is the injection performed?
JUVEDERM® is an outpatient injection administered by a specialist. The injection itself usually takes about 15 minutes. JUVEDERM® includes a type of anesthetic in its formula in order to provide maximum comfort.
How can I prepare?
Before your injection, your health care specialist may want to ask you about allergies and medical history. JUVEDERM® is available in two different formulations, so your specialist will choose the one that most fits your needs. You will receive specific instructions about how you can prepare for your injection, which might include avoiding aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
What can I expect after my injection?
Side effects are usually mild and can include tenderness, pain, redness, and firmness at the injection site. These effects typically clear up in less than a week, but you can use an ice pack on the area to help soothe it in the meantime. You should avoid alcohol, exercise, and a lot of sun exposure for about a day afterward.
