What exactly is in juvéderm®?

juvéderm® is an injectable gel filler used by your cosmetic doctor to refresh your appearance. Using hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in your body, juvéderm® combines with the water in your skin to gently restore lost fullness, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and subtly enhance lips, so you can look as young as you feel. The smooth formulation of juvéderm® provides results that look and feel very natural.

What can I expect from a treatment?

juvéderm® is a non-surgical, healthcare professional-administered treatment that can generally be performed in as little as 15 to 60 minutes (depending on the areas treated) with minimal recovery or downtime. juvéderm® contains pain-reducing lidocaine, so you can also enjoy greater comfort during treatment. Most patients require only one treatment to achieve optimal results.

The results look so natural, everyone will notice, but no one will know®. juvéderm® is clinically proven to last up to 1 or 2 years, depending on which product your doctor recommends. Best of all, you can see visible results instantly after your treatment, so you can enjoy your revitalized look right away. Always speak with your doctor about the risks and benefits of any product or procedure.

Is your appearance in harmony
with how you feel?

Our experience and self-confidence may grow with age, but our skin’s youthfulness starts to fade. As a result, our appearance is no longer in harmony with our dynamic personalities and how we feel on the inside.

In order to understand how skin rejuvenation with juvéderm® is possible, it is important to understand basic skin anatomy and the aging process.

Skin is the largest organ of the body and is made up of approximately 70% water. As a barrier, it protects the body against the invasion of microorganisms and the loss of fluid. It also helps regulate body temperature.

Understanding the aging process

The aging process is a natural process in which cells begin to renew themselves more slowly. For your skin, this means less collagen and hyaluronic acid to support and fill out layers of skin. Environmental effects, pollution, sun exposure, stress and smoking can all increase this effect. Over time, this combination of factors contributes to the three D’s of aging.

Reduce the signs of aging

Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar that helps maintain facial fullness and elasticity in the skin, plays an important role in the way our skin looks, feels and functions. Hyaluronic acid retains water like a sponge, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight. This helps to hydrate and moisturize our skin, improving overall appearance.

As the skin ages and is exposed to environmental pollutants and ultraviolet rays, the cells lose the ability to produce hyaluronic acid. As a result, this causes wrinkles to form and our face to lose definition, balance and its natural shape.

juvéderm® helps to reduce the visible signs of aging by replacing hyaluronic acid to smooth lines, restore lost fullness, and keep your skin hydrated.

Taking the first step

Making the decision to refresh or enhance your appearance deserves proper contemplation and research. If you are considering a facial rejuvenation treatment with juvéderm®, the first step is to explore whether it is right for you. Ultimately, reviewing your options with a qualified cosmetic doctor is the only way to determine if you could benefit from juvéderm®. But, if you know friends or family members who have had treatment, discussing their experiences could be a good start.

Finding a qualified cosmetic doctor

Once you've determined that you're ready to find out if juvéderm® is the right choice for you, you’ll need to find a qualified cosmetic doctor who can administer skin rejuvenation treatments.

Your cosmetic doctor should be medically qualified, well-trained, work out of well-established premises, and be able to advise you on the best treatments to enhance your appearance. Cosmetic doctors have varying medical background such as, dermatology (skin), plastic surgery, and family medicine. Many practices also have specially-trained nurses on staff that can administer the treatment.

The Doctor Locator tool is an easy way to help you find a qualified cosmetic doctor in your area.

Your first consultation

At your first consultation, your cosmetic doctor will help you determine if juvéderm® is right for you. You may have your treatment that day; or you and your doctor will put together a treatment plan for you and you can book your first treatment before you leave. Once you have all the facts, you and your cosmetic doctor can determine what’s right for you.

To get the most out of your consultation it’s important to have an idea of what aspects of your appearance you’d like to address, and what you would like to achieve. The more specific you are about your expectations the easier it will be to achieve your desired results. It is a good idea to bring a photo of yourself when you were younger so that your doctor can see how your appearance has changed and how they can best achieve optimal results. In addition, be open to your doctor’s recommendations. A well-trained doctor may have some suggestions you had not considered based on their understanding of the aging process and what can be achieved with juvéderm®.

You will also be relieved to know that your cosmetic doctor will also want to know about your overall health and will request information about your complete medical history.

Treatment is quick and easy

Your cosmetic doctor will inject juvéderm® under your skin with a fine needle to restore fullness and smooth away fine lines, wrinkles and folds. Following injection, the treated areas may be gently massaged by your doctor. The facial filler procedure is quick and easy, generally taking only 15-60 minutes (depending on areas treated).

Recovery time is quick too

One of the many benefits of juvéderm® is the minimal downtime involved after your treatment. Most people can resume normal activities immediately. Your doctor will advise you on your aftercare. You may be advised not to wear make-up for up to 12 hours. You may also be told to avoid the sun as well as cold temperatures, saunas and steam rooms, for 2 weeks. Some people experience temporary injection-related reactions such as redness, itching at the treatment site, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps.

Studies have shown that these reactions are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less. If these reactions persist for more than one week, or if any other side effects develop, speak to your doctor as soon as possible. Refer to the safety and side effects for more information, and be sure to discuss possible side effects with your doctor.

If you have any questions or concerns about your juvéderm® treatment, please contact your cosmetic doctor.

juvéderm® VOLUMA® - Restore the fullness of youth.

JUVEDERM VOLUMA product

When it comes to maintaining a youthful look, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Smooth contours, full cheeks and a straight jawline typically define a youthful face. The overall shape and contour of the face, however, changes with age. The skin becomes thinner and the effects of gravity become apparent.

Cheek and chin volumization

juvéderm® VOLUMA® is specially designed using VYCROSS® technology to restore lost fullness and enhance the cheeks and chin for a more youthful look. Using hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in your body, juvéderm® VOLUMA® delivers a smooth, natural lift that lasts for up to 2 years. With the addition of pain-reducing lidocaine, you will also enjoy greater comfort during the treatment.

juvéderm® VOLBELLA® - Instantly get back the lips you had or always wish you had.

Full lips with a defined border are a feature of youthful attractiveness. As we age, natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that give skin structure and fullness gradually decrease. This results in our lips and the surrounding area being vulnerable to loss of fullness.
