What is Juvéderm?
Juvederm is a Hyaluronic Acid that is injected into the skin to evenly soften minor imperfections and signs of aging. Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that is naturally present in our skin and maintains the hydration of tissues.
Injection of Juvederm is a replacement source of this Hyaluronic Acid, which disappears gradually with age. Juvederm and Botox can be used to complement each other in the process of anti-aging treatments.
Juvederm is also an immediate treatment to increase lip volume. Treatments usually take less than half an hour, making it a fast and effective laugh line or wrinkle-reducing treatment.
How is a Juvéderm treatment performed?
In a session lasting a few minutes, Juvederm is injected with a tiny needle just below the skin surface, filling and gently smoothing wrinkles. All of our injectables are Physician directed and administered by one of our Advanced Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialists.
How long does it last?
Results are immediate. The effects of Juvederm usually last for nine months and in some cases up to one year The average life of Juvederm in the lips is six months because of the high vascularisation of the lips.
