JUVÉDERM is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps add volume and hydration. Our Vitalogy Skincare Providers inject JUVÉDERM under the skin to instantly restore volume and smooth away facial wrinkles.
This treatment is also used to lessen the appearance of smile lines and nasolabial folds, the parentheses around your mouth which run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth. JUVÉDERM provides a smooth, natural look and feel and studies show superior results of JUVÉDERM when compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.
JUVÉDERM Lip Fillers
JUVÉDERM also offers gel injections for lip augmentation, making the lips appear more full and plump. This injection is also used to facial wrinkles such as parentheses around the mouth.
They are particularly effective for smoothing perioral lines, commonly called “lipstick lines” or “smokers lines”, which are vertical wrinkles that form above and below the mouth. The injections don’t take long and can last up to a year. Side effects are typically mild but can include swelling, redness, tenderness, and other mild discomforts.
What to Expect With JUVÉDERM
The JUVÉDERM injection process takes only about 15 minutes, and the results are immediate. In addition, there’s minimal recovery or downtime, enabling you to step into our office for treatment and get right back to regular activity. Many patients even come for JUVEDERM fillers over their lunch break.
Deciding if it is Right for You
You can speak with your Skin Care Provider to determine if JUVÉDERM should be a part of your skin care regimen to help you achieve your goals. They can also help you with the frequency and what other treatments can supplement this one to give you optimal results.
