This will help us to determine if JUVEDERM is safe and effective for you.
To reduce bruising and swelling, please discontinue over-the-counter aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin D, vitamin E, flaxseed, fish oil, ginger, garlic, and ginkgo for one week prior to your appointment.

The day of your appointment, plan to spend about an hour in the facility. This allows ample time for any paperwork, questions and to help you feel comfortable in our treatment room. Once in a treatment room, Nicole Le Renard or Rebecca Embry will strategically mark spots on your cheeks to indicate the ideal injection sites. Your skin will also be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to enhance your comfort. Juvederm injections take only minutes. They typically cause little if any discomfort as the formulation includes lidocaine to help numb the area. The stunning results provided by JUVEDERM are noticeable almost immediately and last for about 6-9 months after your procedure.
To enhance the effectiveness of your Juvederm treatment session, do not apply pressure to the area for about 12 hours after your session. This could cause the filler to displace in the skin. It is also important to avoid vigorous activities for 24 hours after treatment. Some swelling and bruising is common, but it typically goes away after a few days. You can help manage it with ice packs placed gently against the skin. Avoid direct sunlight, and stay away from saunas or hot showers for 24-hours post-treatment.

Juvéderm® lasts an average of nine to 12 months, though the exact time frame will vary by individual.

Many of our patients opt to scheduled refresher appointments once or twice per year, ensuring that they maintain their beautiful, flawless skin and maximize their results.

Juvéderm® is made of hyaluronic acid gel, which is a substance naturally produced by your body. In your skin, eyes, and connective tissue, there is a high concentration of hyaluronic acid. There, it helps retain the ideal amount of water for optimal hydration and volume – this is what keeps your skin looking gorgeously smooth and glowing. Because the makers of Juvéderm® use only a specialized, biosynthesized form of non-animal hyaluronic acid, it is completely allergen-free.
Yes, Juvéderm® is widely considered safe for use as an injectable filler. It became FDA-approved in 2006, and no serious side effects have been reported from its use as a filler. One of the biggest factors that draw our patients to Juvéderm® injections is that the formula is made from hyaluronic acid, which is an all-natural substance already produced by the body. Compared to other dermal fillers, Juvéderm® has similarly mild (and usually rare) side effects such as mild redness or temporary itching at the injection site.
Typically, patients report only minimal discomfort during the Juvéderm® procedure, if any. Although Juvéderm® is administered via injection, our aestheticians are highly trained and experienced. As a result, they are well-equipped to prioritize patient comfort and make the procedure a positive, pain-free experience.

Juvéderm® is also highly effective when injected in the perioral area (lower cheeks, near the mouth) to reduce wrinkles and deep lines.
