Uses of Juvederm
Juvederm smoothes wrinkles and enhances lips instantly. Juvederm works well for the parenthesis lines around the mouth, for lines around the mouth, for hollowness under the eyes and to add fullness to the lips. The treatment is performed by injecting Juvederm directly into the skin or lips. No skin test is required. The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes and the result is immediate.
Does it hurt?
When treating wrinkles, pain relief is usually not needed but can be easily achieved with topical anesthetic and or a local anesthetic placed by the doctor. However, Juvederm itself is formulated with lidocane (a local pain killer), and so the area is actually numbed as it is being injected. The vast majority of patients report little to no discomfort.
What are the Side-Effects or Risks?
Reactions are very uncommon, but about 1 in 2000 persons have experienced transient swelling, redness and tenderness at or near the treatment site(s) up to several weeks after treatment. For further details concerning your specific treatment, please consult the doctor.
What is the Recovery Time?
Immediately after the treatment the treated area can be slightly swollen and red. Some patients may also experience bruising around the injection site.This is a normal result of the injection, and it generally goes away in 72 hours. We provide all patients with ice and topical Arnica (if appopriate) which helps alleviate bruising and swelling. We also recommend patient avoid (if medically appropriae) blood thinner like Ibupofen or Aspirin, as these can increase the risk of bruising.

How long do the Results Last?
How long the effect of Juvederm treatment lasts is very individual. It depends on many factors, such as the structure of the skin, lifestyle and age as well as on the degree of perfection desired by the individual. For the majority of patients, 50-80% of the effect remains after 6 months. Most people choose to have a touch up done within a year of the original treatment. Juvederm can offer a high degree of patient satisfaction even up to one year after treatment. Because of its long-lasting effects, Juvederm is a great value.
