Juvederm® is a filler gel made from hyaluronic acid. It is similar to Restylane® but manufactured by a different company. Juvederm® products smoothe folds and wrinkles, increases volume in the midface and soften fine lines. Juvederm® has patented HylacrossTM technology which spreads smoothly and creates the desired effect. These treatments can last for up to 6 months to 2 years, depending on the product! The HylacrossTM technology provides excellent durability and can result in less treatments over time! This is what makes Juvederm® so popular.
Juvederm® injections are offered at Cosmetic Laser CentersSM. Treatments typically take an hour or less. It is very safe since the substance is already made in your body. No allergy testing is needed.
Following treatment you will see results immediately! Then after 3-4 weeks, you will likely appreciate further improvement as any initial swelling and bruising should be resolved by that time. Results typically last for 6-12 months and sometimes longer depending on the product. Other potential side effects will be reviewed at the time of your consultation.
It is important to stop taking the following medications 7-10 days prior to your procedure in order to minimize bleeding and bruising:
- Fish Oil/ Omega 3
- Excedrin Products
- Other: Ginseng/Gingko Biloba/Cinnamon/Alcohol Consumption
We ask that you please discuss the temporary discontinuation of any medication with your prescribing physician!
The Juvederm® collection of fillers is a wonderful option to take you back to a more youthful appearance. The products’ smoothing
