What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is an FDA-approved facial filler, designed to replace volume back in the skin. Great for depressions, scars, lines, wrinkles, and hollows. Made of Hyaluronic Acid, a water-binding molecule that naturally occurs in our skin, it will immediately add smoothness to your facial contours, and take years off your appearance.
Am I a Candidate?
JUVÉDERM® can be injected into the nasolabial folds (also known as “smile lines” or “parentheses”). Off label, JUVÉDERM® can be injected into the lips to add an instantly plump to your pout, however at ENT Aesthetics, we use many fillers, so it is important you speak with our experts to see if this or another filler will best suit your needs.
What is a Typical Treatment Like?
As with all injectables, we recommend patients to avoid taking any blood thinners to lessen the risk of bruising. If you are on blood thinners, take Arnica prior to coming in for your appointment. JUVÉDERM® is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally produced fluid in our skin, and helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume back to its youth to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. This is a very simple and safe procedure that provides immediate results. The level of pain associated with this procedure is minimal. Topical numbing cream and or ice is applied prior to treatment to help lessen any discomfort.
What Results Will I See?*
An increase in volume will be noticed immediately following treatment. Some of the immediate plumping is due to swelling at the injection site, so some reduction in fullness will be noticed after a few days. In most cases, JUVÉDERM® lasts from 6 months to 1 year.
Once JUVÉDERM® is injected, it can take a week or so before it settles to it final balance. One of the key benefits of this filler is that if you decide that too much JUVÉDERM® was used, or if a more subtle result was desired, the product can be dissolved with an injection of Hyaluronidase.
Is There Any Downtime?*
In most cases, seeing slight bumps after an injection is considered normal. At the same time, our highly skilled experts can minimize or prevent these bumps. Fortunately, these bumps typically go away the same day or within a few days. One benefit of JUVÉDERM® is that it is pliable for about 24 hours to give you time to massage any lumps outpost injection. Typical side effects include mild soreness, swelling, redness immediately post-injection, and possible bruising at the injection site post-treatment.
