Juvéderm is an incredibly smooth hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in the skin. It is used to add volume and hydration to the areas in which it is injected. It is administered underneath the skin to restore volume and smooth lines and wrinkles on the face, including the nasolabial folds, smile lines, and other creases and folds that occur over time.
The process of receiving Juvéderm injections takes only about 15 minutes. Results are immediate, and there is no recovery or downtime necessary. Patients can step into our office for treatment and get right back to their life. Many patients do not need anesthetics, especially when receiving Juvéderm injections formulated with lidocaine for improved comfort.
Most patients benefit from just one treatment to achieve the ultimate results in wrinkle smoothing, and the results last for approximately one year after injection. Patients may also visit Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center for regular touch-up injections to maintain the results and slow the signs of aging.
