What can Juvéderm® do for me?
Juvéderm® dermal fillers have the ability to:
• Add volume and smooth the deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth (laugh lines)
• Plump thin lips and smooth the edges of lips
• Augment the cheeks to enhance their shape, restoring fullness
• Volumize the under eye area
• Decrease the appearance of indented scars
How does Juvéderm® work?
Juvéderm® injections are a concentrate of hyaluronic acid that combines with the water within your skin to refresh and volumize your appearance. Juvéderm® injection is relatively quick with minimal downtime. In fact, the injection has some lidocaine in it to reduce discomfort! Results may last up to 6 months, with some patients reporting results lasting up to 9 months.
How is Juvéderm® different from Botox®?
Don’t confuse Juvéderm® dermal fillers with Botox®! Although both procedures involve facial injections, Botox® is injected to seize muscle movements in frown lines and crows feet to reduce their appearance and prevent wrinkle progression. Many people use a combination of Juvéderm® and Botox® to achieve their desired results. Dermal fillers will plump target areas, whereas Botox® relaxes wrinkle prone areas.
Risks from Dermal Fillers
Risks from Juvéderm® dermal fillers are very low, and side effects are extremely rare. Dr. Wayne Smith has lengthy experience with cosmetic injectables, and will consult with you carefully prior to injection to determine your desired end result.
If excessive swelling, redness, or increased sensitivity is apparent after injection, contact your doctor immediately.
