Juvéderm is a transparent hyaluronic acid gel used for filling in furrows and smoothing out wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural constituent of skin and is gradually reabsorbed with time contributing to tissue sag and signs of aging. Through a simple injection, minor imperfections and signs of aging are softened very evenly using Juvéderm.

Juvéderm is of non-animal origin and is obtained by biosynthesis. The molecule is highly biocompatible so it does not require any prior skin test, which means Juvéderm can be used immediately at the first office visit. The effects are noticeable instantly and usually last up to 12 months depending on skin type, the area treated, the volume injected, and the technique used.

Juvéderm is the most highly concentrated form of hyaluronic acid gel available on the market. Also using a highly innovative manufacturing process, the hyaluronic acid molecules are extensively cross-linked together. The resultant product is more resistant to breakdown and absorption, making Juvéderm as long lasting as possible.

Juvéderm treatments usually take approximately 15 to 30 minutes. Results are seen immediately. Occasionally redness, swelling and mild discomfort may develop at the injection site and usually disappear spontaneously within 48 to 72 hours. Juvéderm may last up to 6 to 9 months, most patients have touch up treatments at around 6 months.
