Sun exposure, hormonal changes and aging can all have an impact on your skin’s appearance. Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of fullness and elasticity. Healthcare professionals can now reverse these signs of aging by correcting the wrinkles and folds, and adding volume to sunken skin.

Refresh what nature gave you

JUVÉDERM® is a soft injectable gel filler that your doctor uses to help replenish and refresh your appearance. It uses hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring sugar found in your body), which combines with the water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume and reduce lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid injections have also been shown to stimulate collagen production. Not only that, JUVÉDERM® works to enhance and define lips, cheeks and jawline. Best of all, the results are instant and natural looking, and last up to a year.

Take comfort in JUVÉDERM®

New JUVÉDERM® with lidocaine is a unique formula that lets you feel good before, during and after your JUVÉDERM® treatment. The addition of lidocaine, an effective localized pain reducer, to JUVÉDERM® provides an injection experience that’s gentle and comfortable.

What makes JUVÉDERM® different?

JUVÉDERM® uses a patented technology called HYLACROSS that results in a gel that is smooth and consistent, with effects lasting up to one year. It is this advanced technology that makes the results so natural looking. Plus Juvé derm is the first hyaluronic acid gel to have demonstrated its safety and effectiveness for all skin tones.

What to expect from a treatment

During the treatment, your health care professional will ease JUVÉDERM® under your skin to enhance facial features or fill wrinkles and folds. For the first 24 hours after treatment, you should avoid

  • Strenuous exercise
  • Consumption of alcoholic beverages
  • Extended exposure to sun, heat or freezing temperatures

Frequently asked questions

How long does JUVÉDERM® last?

The unique formulation of JUVÉDERM® provides results that last up to one year.

How long does treatment usually take?

Results are instant. You will see an immediate improvement to the treated area.

Is treatment with JUVÉDERM® painful?

JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Because JUVÉDERM® is also available with pain-reducing lidocaine, the whole injection process is a more comfortable experience.

What are possible side effects?

Side effects are rare and these should be discussed with your doctor.

What is recovery time following a treatment?

The treatment requires minimal downtime. Most people return to their normal routines immediately.

The Soft Lift approach

As we age, our faces slowly undergo the “3 Ds” of aging: deterioration (wrinkles and texture change), descent (droopiness of the skin), and deflation (a loss of volume). Soft Lift addresses the concerns of aging skin by combining the facial filler JUVÉDERM® with BOTOX® Cosmetic. The result is a full facial rejuvenation effect that is balanced and natural looking. With the Soft Lift approach, aesthetic practitioners use BOTOX® Cosmetic to treat upper facial lines, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines, along with Juvé derm to treat volume loss and folds in the mid to lower face. Soft Lift makes it possible to achieve a pleasing and refreshed look.
