Juvederm® is an injectable filler which can improve the appearance of deep facial wrinkles, folds, lines, and acne scars, enhance the lips, and contour facial features like the chin and cheeks. Juvederm® is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in all species which is highly attracted to water and has the ability to bind to it. The results are very natural and long-lasting, with the effect remaining for six months or longer.
Dr. Steven H. Dayan performs the Juvederm ® injection in his office. Depending on the area being treated, the procedure can take as little as five minutes to as much as thirty minutes to complete. A topical anesthetic, local anesthetic, or nerve block may first be administered for the patient’s comfort before injecting Juvederm® directly into the skin with a very fine needle.
Juvederm® has very few side effects. Some patients may experience redness or swelling at the injection site which can last for a few days. Nevertheless, work and other normal activities can be resumed right after treatment. Juvederm® is a safe and effective injectable that can be used for all skin types and colors and does not require prior testing.
