Deep wrinkles and other signs of age along the face can be effectively improved with Juvederm®. This injectable dermal filler is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, and does not require an allergy test.
Juvederm® works to smooth out wrinkles and creases, and can also be used to add volume and contour to the lips and cheeks. The gel is gently injected into the areas targeted for treatment in a procedure that usually only lasts about 30 minutes or less. The areas being treated can be numbed before the procedure to make you as comfortable as possible.
While there may be some mild redness and swelling present around the injection sites after treatment, this should fade quickly. Most patients are able to resume normal daily activities right after Juvederm® treatment.
Juvederm® is known for its long-lasting results – in many cases, results can last up to nine months or more. The effects can be maintained with follow-up treatments. Dr. Erella also offers a new formulation, Juvederm Voluma XC, which can last even longer – up to 2 years!
