What is JUVEDERM®?
One of the most popular dermal fillers available on the market today, JUVEDERM® can bring patients long-lasting correction of wrinkles, fine lines, and lost facial volume in as little as one treatment session. FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2006, this product is one of the most versatile and reliable treatments of its kind.
How Does it Work?
The JUVEDERM® family of products’ unique hyaluronic acid gel is what makes it so well-suited to treating a broad range of the signs of aging. Hyaluronic acid works by attracting water molecules to the areas where it is injected. This infuses the area with extra volume and moisture that lasts.
What sets this treatment apart from other hyaluronic acid gels is the hylacross technology it’s created with. This technology creates a smoother, more malleable gel that lasts for an extended period of time, and makes it more equipped to fill in smaller, more precise fine lines.
What can it Treat?
What sets JUVEDERM® apart from other injectable treatments is the enormous breadth of cosmetic issues that it can address. Because JUVEDERM® is a smooth consistency dermal filler, it can be used to fill in small fine lines and wrinkles to an incredible level of precision.
It can address wrinkles like crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, marionette lines, and smile lines. JUVEDERM® can also treat loss of volume in the cheeks, or correct thin or uneven lips.

What is a JUVEDERM® Treatment Like?
One aspect of many dermal filler treatments that makes many patients anxious is the pain of the injection process. Fortunately, JUVEDERM® injections do not have the same discomfort associated with them as other dermal fillers. This is because JUVEDERM® is indicated with lidocaine, a mild anesthetic that makes injections significantly easier to tolerate.
Each treatment session takes just 20 minutes to complete and brings results that can last anywhere between 6-12 months. While there is typically no downtime associated with this procedure, possible side effects include redness, pain, swelling, bruising, itching, and discoloration at the injection site. Fortunately, these usually fade within a few days of undergoing a treatment session.
