Juvéderm is an injectable filler typically used to soften the look of wrinkles or add volume to the lips. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body but diminishes with time, and the Juvéderm formula reintroduces hyaluronic acid to the treated area to add volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
What is Juvéderm?
The use of lip fillers, cheek fillers, and wrinkle-reducing injectables are at an all-time high. Pop culture and social media have destigmatized the use of cosmetic fillers to enhance your natural beauty.
The Juvéderm family of fillers offers many different options for those looking to add plumpness to their lips or cheeks, or even smooth out wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
Achieve your personal vision of beauty with Juvéderm.
Juvéderm™ is an injectable dermal filler which has helped millions of women look younger and more beautiful. Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid which is a substance that exists naturally in your skin. In a simple, non-invasive procedure, Juvéderm is injected underneath the skin to add volume.
What can Juvéderm treat?
Dr. Mohan uses Juvéderm in the treatment of:
Lip enhancement (for fuller lips)
Deep lines near the mouth (nasolabial folds)
Wrinkles, lines, creases
While there are many injectable fillers available today, Juvéderm has proven to be very safe and effective. It is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA with results that last six months to a year.
How does Juvéderm work?
Hyaluronic acid naturally maintains hydration and volume in your skin, which is lost as people age. However, when injected, Juvéderm bonds with the water in the skin and increases its volume 1000 times. This helps to expand the skin and smooth lines and wrinkles.
As a lip enhancer, Juvéderm helps to create full and beautiful lips. An added benefit is its ability to stimulate collagen production to create more elastic, younger looking skin.
The Juvéderm family of fillers includes the following varieties:
Juvéderm XC, which smooths out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses
Juvéderm Voluma XC, the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area
Juvéderm Volbella XC, which adds subtle volume to the lips and diminishes lip lines
Juvéderm Vollure XC, which softens lines around the nose and mouth
Juvéderm Ultra XC, which is used for volume in the lips
Our office offers the entire collection of Juvéderm fillers. We work closely with each patient and recommends specific treatment based on your specific goals.
How is Juvéderm administered?
Using a thin needle, Juvéderm is injected into the subdermal layer of skin where wrinkles appear. The amount used depends on the severity of the wrinkles in the area. A local anesthetic is used to ensure patient comfort. The results of Juvéderm are almost immediate and there is no downtime.
What can I expect after Juvéderm injections?
There is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. After 24 hours, you should be able to resume your normal activities. Side effects are rare and are typically limited to the injection sites and will usually subside in a few days.
Side effects are moderate and generally last 2 to 4 weeks. Common side effects include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching.
