Juvéderm® is a safe, effective, and long-lasting dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. At Smith Cosmetic Surgery, Juvéderm® is used to restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, such as your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (also known as nasolabial folds, which are the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Other uses of Juvéderm® treatment include the following:
- Brow augmentation
- Earlobe augmentation
- Cheek augmentation
- Lip augmentation
- Correction of marionette lines
- Jaw line enhancement
- Hand rejuvenation
- Nose augmentation
- Temporal augmentation
- Tear trough correction
How does Juvéderm® work?
Juvéderm® consists of a hyaluronic acid-based gel that is injected into the skin in areas where natural collagen deterioration has led to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The gel binds with the natural collagen and elastin contained in the skin. When administered into the lips, Juvéderm® works to replenish volume lost as a result of aging. The hyaluronic acid plumps up the lips for a youthful smile you can adore.
How long does a lip injection through Juvéderm® take?
The lip injection treatment process through Juvéderm® can be completed within a half hour, making this a faster treatment option as opposed to surgical approaches.
Is Juvéderm® safe?
Juvéderm® injections contain naturally occurring body substances and are thus safe for the majority of patients seeking an effective anti-aging skin care treatment. Possible side effects of Juvéderm® treatment include temporary redness, bruising, swelling, and numbness. If these symptoms appear, they typically go away within three to seven days.
How long do the results of Juvéderm® treatment last?
The results of Juvéderm® treatment typically last from six to eight months, depending on the patient. With the help of Juvéderm® products such as Juvéderm® Ultra or Juvéderm® Ultra Plus, the effects of treatment can last for up to a year.
How many lip injections with Juvéderm® will I need to realize my aesthetic goals?
The number of lip injections you may need will depend on what you would like to accomplish through this treatment as well as how well your body may respond to the Juvéderm® formula. Ultimately, the amount of treatments a patient may need to fulfill their aesthetic goals will vary from others.
Can anyone receive a lip injection with Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® has been studied to provide rejuvenating results for people of all genders and skin types. However, personal factors will determine whether you as an individual may be able to receive a lip injection with Juvéderm®.
Will I need to set aside downtime following my lip injection with Juvéderm®?
Patients who receive a lip injection with Juvéderm® will not be required to set aside downtime for a recovery following their treatment. You can continue your agenda immediately following your appointment!
Is a lip injection with Juvéderm® a comfortable treatment?
The Juvéderm® formula contains lidocaine, a numbing agent to provide you with optimal comfort during your treatment. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the lips for additional comfort during this procedure.
Who is a good candidate for lip injection with Juvéderm®?
