What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a dermal filler gel, approved by the FDA and consisting of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules in the body, helping to hydrate the skin and add more volume.
Juvéderm® helps lift the skin, restoring lost skin volume, redefining facial contours and softening lines and wrinkles, ultimately making them less visible and giving your face a more youthful look. It can also be used to “plump up” your lips and restore the natural contours of your mouth.

How Does Juvéderm® Work?
As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid produced by the body decreases, which leads to less support of skin tissue and decreased volume in the skin. This combination results in the appearance of lines, wrinkles and “saggy” skin on the face. Juvéderm® helps correct these issues by replenishing the body’s hyaluronic acid.
Juvéderm® contains hyaluronic acid particles that bind with water in the skin, adding support and volume to facial skin, which lessens the appearance of lines and wrinkles by restoring lost skin volume and giving your face a softer, younger appearance.
Juvéderm® works best in the lower part of your face as that’s where the loss of volume really shows, especially in the lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
The Juvéderm® gel is injected with a fine needle to “fill in” those areas. Treatments are often done in as little as 15 to 30 minutes but sometimes can take up to an hour. Lidocaine is one of the ingredients in certain formulations of Juvéderm® gel, making the procedure virtually painless for most patients.
Is Juvéderm® Right for Me?
Because Juvéderm® contains a naturally occurring substance most healthy men and women over the age of 21 can benefit from its anti-aging effects on the face.
During your consultation, we’ll discuss your options with you and help you determine if Juvéderm® is the best choice for you, based on your medical history and unique aesthetic goals.
