How Results Are Achieved with Juvederm™
The injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.
Juvederm™ comes in two formulations so that treatment can be tailored to your unique needs. Juvederm™ Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm™ Ultra Plus is more robust and is used for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
The treatment session usually takes 30–60 minutes. It is performed with a topical and/or local anesthetic to minimize pain.
Correction with Juvederm™ is temporary. Touchup injections, as well as repeat injections, are usually needed to maintain optimal correction. Correction usually lasts 4 – 12 months, depending on the areas injected. Individual results do vary.
Prior to a Juvederm™ Treatment Session
Avoid aspirin or aspirin-containing products, unless medically contraindicated, Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Green Tea, Garlic, Ginko, Ginseng, and St. John’s Wort for a period of 10 days prior to the Juvederm™ treatment session. If you have any active skin infections or inflammation, Juvederm™ cannot be injected.
If you have had cold sore outbreaks, needle punctures could contribute to another one. You should take medication to treat a potential outbreak prior to the Juvederm™ procedure.
