Q. What is JUVEDERM®?
JUVEDERM® is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that can provide between six and twelve months of correction to fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2006, this product has helped countless patients achieve, smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin.
Q. How Does it Work?
Like many other reputable dermal fillers, JUVEDERM® is formulated with hyaluronic acid, a compound that naturally occurs within the human body. During a treatment session, JUVEDERM® is carefully injected into the patient’s desired treatment areas. Once this product is injected into the skin, it begins to attract additional volume to the site of wrinkles and fine lines, smoothing and softening their appearance. It also encourages the body to produce additional collagen, a structural protein that is vital to how tight, toned, and youthful looking the skin is.
JUVEDERM® is formulated with HYLACROSS technology that results in a gel that is smoother and more malleable than similar dermal fillers on the market today. This allows patients to obtain more beautiful, natural-looking results then with other dermal fillers.
Q. What Areas can it be Used to Treat?
JUVEDERM® can be used to improve the appearance of some of the most common wrinkles people can develop, including:
Q. What can I Expect from Treatment?

Each session takes about 20 minutes to complete, with most patients experiencing no significant downtime following treatment. While redness, firmness, swelling, bruising, itching, and discoloration are common, these side effects usually subside within a few hours of receiving treatment.
