Juvéderm® is an injectable filler that can temporarily reduce the appearance of age-related facial lines and folds.
As the body ages, it slowing begins to lose its supply of hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for skin elasticity and hydration. Juvéderm works to replace this lost hyaluronic acid, restoring a smooth, supple appearance to the face.
If you’re concerned about facial lines and wrinkles, Juvéderm may be right for you. Juvéderm is also a great option for people who have lost volume in their cheeks or lips.
Juvéderm is a non-invasive treatment that can give you a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Juvéderm offers more natural-looking results than many other fillers.
If you have an active skin infection or a previous allergy to any of the ingredients in Juvéderm, you may not be an ideal candidate for treatment. The best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for Juvéderm is to schedule a consultation at Cosmetique.
Prior to injection, a topical or local anesthetic can be applied to your face to minimize discomfort. Your face will also be cleansed with an antiseptic to reduce your risk of infection. Treatment areas will be carefully determined and marked for injection.
Using a fine needle, injections will be made at each marked location, at varying levels beneath the skin. Following injection, we will gently massage your skin to ensure even distribution beneath the skin.Only one treatment is needed for noticeable improvement.
You can return to your normal schedule immediately after Juvéderm treatment. You may experience some redness near injection sites, which can last for a few days. Swelling is also a possibility, but should resolve within a week. Any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter medications.
As swelling goes down, the results of your procedure should become more clear. The face may appear over-filled at first, but will settle into its final appearance within a week. The final results will last 6-9 months before being naturally absorbed by your body. Repeat treatments will be needed to maintain results long-term.
