WHAT IS JUVÉDERM™?
JUVÉDERM™ injectable gel is a colorless hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. Juvéderm™ injectable gel instantly restores your skin's volume and smooths away “jowl lines,” “smile lines,” and “parentheses.” It can also be used to add volume to lips and cheeks.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE AND HOW LONG DO IT LAST?
With Juvéderm™, the injection process takes only about 15-30 minutes. It may be done with local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. The results of Juvéderm™ are immediate and you may return to your normal activity within an hour or so. Results may last up to 1 year.
JUVÉDERM™ COUNTERINDICATIONS & SIDE EFFECTS
You should not be treated with Juvéderm™ if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant, or if you have severe allergies, especially with history of anaphylaxis. Side effects were usually mild to moderate lasting 7 days or less and included temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bumps. Patients who are using substances that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as with any injection, may experience increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
