Juvederm FAQ
What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a smooth, injectable filler that comes in gel form. It aids in immediately smoothing away facial wrinkles and restores the skin’s natural volume. Juvederm is perfect for reducing folds, including your nasolabial folds (creases between your nose and lips when you smile).

Juvederm comes in a number of forms, including Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Voluma. The Juvederm range can be used alongside ‘line-smoother’ injectables for a complete rejuvenation of your face.

Who uses JUVEDERM?

The injectable gel adds short-term volume to facial tissue, reestablishing a softer look. Juvederm therapy is intended for those who wish to correct folds and facial wrinkles or enhance their lips and cheekbones.

Juvederm comes in various forms, allowing physicians to customize each treatment:

  • Juvederm Ultra offers flexibility in contouring folds and facial wrinkles.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus is a stronger formula that corrects more intricate wrinkles and folds.
  • Juvederm Voluma can strengthen temples and cheeks.

For a natural Soft Lift look, consider combining Juvederm and line-smoothing injectables.

How is JUVEDERM different from other dermal fillers?

Juvederm’s production process creates a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid. This is the secret to Juvederm’s long-term effects. This unique manufacturing method develops a consistent gel that smoothly glides into the skin, generating a natural feel and look. According to medical professionals, Juvederm won’t cause swelling in treated areas.

What is hyaluronic acid?

HA (hyaluronic acid) is an organic element of all connective tissues and skin. It mimics a substance already occurring in our bodies, negative immunity reactions are rare. HA attracts and captures water molecules, adding volume to your skin and hydrating it in the process. Besides being used to enhance physical appearance, hyaluronic acid is sometimes injected into arthritic joints to aid patients with mobility. HA is also use to nurse wounds and treat eyes after surgery.

Numerous non-animal derived aesthetic products use hyaluronic acid. In addition to the Juvederm line (Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus), options include the Teosyal line (Teosyal Ultra Deep and Teosyal Kiss) and the Restylane line (Restylane, Restylane Fine Lines, Restylane SubQ, Perlane).

All of these products contain identical HA molecules but have different factors including:

  • Concentration or quantity of HA
  • Degree of cross-linking
  • Arrangement inside the dermal-subcutaneous continuum
  • The number of proteins present
  • Flow features

The flexibility of HA products allows for different applications, including sub-dermal, dermal, supra-periosteal and subcutaneous injections. This adaptability, combined with minimal risk of immune reaction, makes HA products and injectable filler invaluable in to state-of-the-art aesthetic procedures.

How is JUVEDERM administered?

After an initial consultation, Dr. Sharma injects Juvederm into the skin to augment and fill in the treatment area. Juvederm is administered using a fine needle to minimize injection discomfort. The area may also be anesthetized to lessen the discomfort, which can occur during the treatment and shortly afterwards. The gel consistency of Juvederm lets the physician inject it smoothly and easily. The injection adds volume to the skin, helping to smooth out facial folds and wrinkles, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds. Juvederm may result in a smoother skin surface and is fantastic at enhancing lips and cheekbones.

What are the side effects of JUVEDERM?

The majority of side effects from Juvederm are moderate or mild and usually last no longer than seven days. Typical side effects of temporary injections include tenderness/pain, redness, swelling, firmness, bruising, bumps/lumps, discoloration and itching. As with all skin injection processes, there’s always a possibility of infection. Tell your physician about any side effects once they become apparent.

How long does JUVEDERM last?

Correction with JUVEDERM is short-term. Repeat and touch-up injections are required to uphold the desired look. Fortunately, the results can last as long as half a year, and perhaps even longer. Results may vary, as everyone’s metabolism is unique. Patients tend to obtain additional Juvederm treatment every six to 12 months.
