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.
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.
