Juvederm™ injectable gel is a hyaluronic acid (HA) that replaces the natural HA your skin looses over time. Juvederm™ brings back the skins volume and smoothes away facial wrinkle and folds. While other HA fillers on the market have a more granular consistency, Juvederm™ injectable gel is the first smooth-consistency HA gel. This is due to an innovative manufacturing process called Hylacross™ technology. Hylacross™ gives Juvederm™ its unique smooth-gel properties as well as an optimal gel structure that holds up over time. That’s why Juvederm™ injectable gel is the only HA filler that’s FDA approved to last up to 1 year.
Juvederm™ is done in the office. The most commonly reported side effects are temporary injections-site redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps and bruising. If you are planning to have Juvederm™ please avoid taking any aspirin, ibuprofen, or Motrin for at least 10 days prior to treatment as this can help minimize the risk of bruising.
