What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler that can help you restore facial volume by filling in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and lines. A non-surgical injectable made of hyaluronic acid – a substance that is already present in the body – Juvederm treatment does not require an allergy test.
Juvederm is a clear gel that is very smooth and natural-looking. Besides replacing lost volume in the face for a more youthful look, it can be used on the lips to make them fuller. Juvederm is safe for use on all skin tones.
For Juvederm injections to look natural and not overdone, you need a skilled injector who understands the anatomy and how Juvederm works in the skin. Dr. Lewis takes the time he needs to evaluate your face and determine the best areas for Juvederm and the amount of the product required to produce the results you want.
Juvederm injections usually last for 6-8 months, but they have been known to last as long as a year for some patients.
Areas improved by Juvederm injections:
- Nasolabial folds – the wrinkles that start at the nose and continue down to the mouth
- Marionette lines – the wrinkles that start at the mouth and continue down the chin
- Thin lips that you wish to make fuller and poutier
