Juvederm is injected into the skin to create volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip it can restore a more natural and/or sensuous look. In contrast to other implants, Juvederm is not extracted from animals. This means that you don’t have to worry about an allergic reaction. Juvederm is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre testing.
How does Juvederm work?
Treatments are done in our office and take about 30 minutes and the results is almost immediate; in most cases. Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal clear gel. Unlike other fillers, it is supplied to your doctor in densities. Each one is designed for a specific treatment area. Your doctor may use a mixture of densities to help you achieve your desired appearance.
How long does it last?
It varies from individual to individual. The length of time your treatment will last depends on many factors such as your skin, your lifestyle and your age. Most patients find the effect remains after 9 months. However, the average lip treatment only last for about 6 months due to their higher blood flow.
The great thing about Juvederm is that you can replenish your natural beauty whenever you feel the need. Unlike permanent implant, Juvederm always leaves you a choice when the effect of the treatment has worn off. A touch up can be performed any time you like after the previous treatment.
