Juvederm is a smooth gel filler designed to address creases around the lips and nose. A single treatment can yield smooth and natural-looking results that may last up to a year. Juvederm is manufactured using HYLACROSS technology, resulting in a gel with a smooth consistency. It also contains lidocaine, enhancing comfort during the procedure. With Juvederm, you can achieve the flawless results you desire without any discomfort.
Juvederm, produced by Allergan (the same company that makes Botox Cosmetic), consists of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in your skin and connective tissues. While injected into the body, Juvederm acts like a dry sponge, absorbing water and plumping up the treated area. While FDA-approved for treating moderate to severe nasolabial folds (smile lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), Juvederm is also commonly used to enhance lip fullness and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags.
The majority of individuals tolerate Juvederm well, though some may experience mild discomfort. Juvederm Ultra XC, a product from Allergan, contains premixed lidocaine, significantly improving the injection experience compared to earlier fillers. Numbing creams can also be used to alleviate any discomfort, and for sensitive areas like the lips, a local anesthetic injection is always included at no additional cost.
Due to its safety, convenience of injection, and enduring results, Juvederm has become a prominent player in the filler industry. Dr. Bembi's primary choice for general applications is Juvederm, and he particularly favors Juvederm volume addressing under-eye concerns.
Juvederm can add volume to various parts of the face, including the cheeks, under-eye area, nasolabial folds (smile lines), and as well as the chin and jawline. Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers like Juvederm are often combined to offer a comprehensive non-surgical rejuvenation. Many individuals choose to undergo both treatments simultaneously to minimize the need for additional visits.
After the treatment, it’s normal to experience some redness and swelling at the injection sites. However, most patients can comfortably resume work the following day without any issues. In the case of lip augmentation using Juvederm, you can expect a noticeable increase in size during the initial 24-48 hours, followed by a return to normalcy within 3-5 days.
