Juvéderm® is an injectable dermal filler that corrects fold and wrinkles in the facial areas. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical method to rejuvenate the face. The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery classifies Juvéderm as becoming one of the most popular non-surgical anti-aging treatments in the country.

The gel is made primarily from hyaluronic acid, a material that is naturally found in the human body. It promotes skin hydration and restores skin volume. Since it is not produced from animal tissue, testing is not required prior to Juvéderm treatment.

Results with Juvéderm are highly favorable due to maximum levels of hyaluronic acid concentration. The gel form is smooth rather than granular. When injected, it results in natural, smooth, and young-looking skin.

Juvéderm is FDA-approved to be safe and efficient. The treatment has been proven to be safe and effective for people of color. The chemical composition of Juvéderm addresses issues that people with dark skin have with dermal fillers.

A Juvéderm treatment can be completed in 15-20 minutes. The hyaluronic acid gel is injected into the troubled layers of the dermis. Results are readily apparent. Moderate to severe wrinkles as well as fine lines around the mouth and eyes will become smooth. The results of a Juvéderm treatment are also long-lasting, usually six months or more as the filler is absorbed by the body gradually.

The recovery is fast, but will depend on the severity of the treatment. The site of injection will be sore initially, yet it quickly becomes soft. Normally, you can return to work on the same day but be sure to avoid alcohol and exercise.
