Do you have unwanted wrinkles on your face or around your lips? If so, Juvéderm may be a good option for you. It helps to instantly banish fine lines and wrinkles to make you look and feel more youthful. It’s that simple! So how does it work?


Juvéderm is comprised of a smooth hyaluronic acid gel that smooths wrinkles and folds when injected into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the human body whose function is to bind and absorb water, creating volume in the face. It diminishes during the natural aging process, causing those lines and folds in your face. Juvéderm restores the hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and folds.


Juvéderm often lasts up to 12 months, boating a high concentration of hyaluronic acid to produce smooth, natural-looking results. It is also the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has proven its safety and effectiveness in colored skin. It shows no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in darker skin tones. It is safe and effective on most skin types and tones and is great for facial contouring and improving the appearance of scars.

Get The Most From Your Juvéderm Treatment

Avoid taking over-the-counter drugs and supplements like aspirin, vitamin E, ginger, gingko, and garlic for ten to fourteen days prior to your treatment as they may cause excessive bleeding or bruising. It is best to not wear any cosmetics when you go in for your treatment. Stay away from excessive heat because it may cause the blood vessels to dilate. It is helpful to follow an anti-aging skin care regimen following your treatment to keep your skin looking youthful. Use gentle cleansers, anti-aging moisturizers, serums, and sunblock to protect your skin from the negative effects of aging.
