Juvederm Dermal Filler
Juvederm™ is a next generation, longer lasting product made with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid. It is used for contouring and volumizing depressions and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, forehead wrinkles, cheeks and nasal furrows and is an ideal option to plump thin lips.
Juvederm™ improves the appearance of:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Glabellar furrows (lines between the eyebrows)
- Acne scars
- Adding volume to the lips
- Adding volume to the cheeks
- Tear troughs (the depression between the lower eyelids and the nose)

What can I expect after Juvederm™ treatment?
If you experience mild swelling or bruising from any type of injection, ice or cold packs can help to minimize swelling or discomfort. You can apply makeup over the treated area immediately.
What other cosmetic treatments may be combined with Juvederm™?
One of the most powerful combination treatments involves the simultaneous use of Botox™ and dermal fillers like Juvederm™ or Radiesse. With this treatment, a liquid face lift may be achieved. Deeply “etched ” lines that persist despite Botox™ treatment may be improved even further with the addition of a filler. More superficial lines may benefit from skin resurfacing, including laser treatment and chemical peels.
How long does Juvederm™ last?
Results from Juvederm™ injections typically last 8-12 months in the nasolabial folds, 3-6 months in the lips, and 9 months or more in the tear trough area.
How does Juvederm™ differ from other fillers?
There are several different dermal fillers on the market. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Juvederm™ and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid and have a medium consistency. Radiesse is a thicker product made from tiny calcium spheres.
Due to its consistency, Juvederm™ is the ideal product for correcting relatively superficial wrinkles and filling subtle contour deformities. Conversely, Radiesse is better suited to filling deeper wrinkles and correcting more profound facial folds and contours.
How is Juvederm™ administered?
Like all modern filler products, Juvederm™ is completely biocompatible and does not require allergy testing. Fillers are administered using a very fine needle and the procedure can be completed either with topical anesthesia or with a local anesthetic block.
