Men and women who are looking for a non-surgical but long lasting treatment for wrinkles around the eyes and lips may select Juvéderm injection. Juvéderm is a gel made from a substance that naturally occurs in the body to support the skin. Injections can instantly reduce wrinkles and plump lips and sunken cheeks.
The Juvéderm injection is a very quick process that takes no more than a 30-minute appointment to complete. We mark and clean the treatment sites on your face, then inject the filler into your skin. A numbing agent is used, as well as a local anesthetic if you wish.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I want something more permanent? Juvéderm is effective, and can last up to a year, but it is not a permanent solution (although you can receive multiple treatments). If you want a longer lasting solution, you may want to consider a facelift or cheek implants.
What is recovery like? As quick and easy as the procedure is, the recovery is quick and easy, too. You should be able to resume all day-to-day activities right away. You may feel slight numbness or a tingling sensation, but it should subside within a few hours, and the results are visible nearly right away.
Will there be any side effects? Hyaluronic acid, the main active ingredient in Juvéderm, is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. Most reported side effects from a Juvéderm injection, such as itching, redness or acne, are usually of short duration. Our team will discuss these as part of your consultation.
