Juvederm

Last Updated: November 30, 2012

Approved in June 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Juvederm’s primary use is to remove nasolabial folds, or "smile lines", creases in the skin of the face which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable filler compound used to reduce signs of facial wrinkles.

It's comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring compound in the skin important for maintaining skin volume and hydration.

Juvederm is manufactured using a proprietary cross-linking process that transforms the hyaluronic acid to a smooth, freely flowing gel that provides results lasting up to a year.

What part of the body/face is Juvederm best used for?

Juvederm is particularly suited to treat wrinkles around the mouth and nose, including smile lines extending from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth and vertical wrinkles around the lips.

It can also be used to fill hollows and scars on the face, and for lip augmentation.

Juvederm is an injectable facial filler used by cosmetic, dermatological and plastic surgeons to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles.

How is a Juvederm injection performed?

Juvederm treatment is a simple nonsurgical procedure taking approximately 15 minutes in which the gel is slowly injected into the desired areas.

Results are immediately apparent and increase over the next 24 hours.

In some cases, follow-up visits are needed to touch-up the administered areas for improved results.

What are the benefits of Juvederm?

As your skin ages, the hyaluronic acid in it breaks down resulting in wrinkles and loss of volume in the skin.

Juvederm replenishes this hyaluronic acid to reduce the wrinkles and promote smoother, healthier looking skin.

Juvederm is FDA approved to provide results up to a year as a result.

All hyaluronic acid facial filler products are eventually absorbed by the body, usually within six to nine months.

What are the risks and recovery time?

Recovery time is minimal, and most everyday activities can be maintained.

Strenuous exercise, consumption of alcohol and exposure to sun/heat should be avoided for 24 hours after Juvederm treatment.

Side effects from Juvederm are generally mild, typically lasting less than 7 days. Common side effects include temporary swelling, pain, redness, bruising, itching and discoloration.

As with any medical procedure, infection may also result.

Am I a good candidate for Juverderm injections?

Juvederm is well tolerated by most individuals and is the first FDA approved hydraluronic-acid filler for persons of color.

However, Juvederm should not be administered to patients with severe allergies, allergies to bacterial proteins, or having a history of anaphylaxis.

What does Juverderm cost?

Cost ranges from $400 to $800 per syringe, depending on area.
