Discover Youthful Radiance with Juvéderm Treatments at Our Medical Spa Services Family Medicine NYC

Juvederm is a popular dermal filler used to restore volume, smoothen lines, and enhance facial contours. It is a gel-based injectable made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps maintain hydration and elasticity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Juvederm is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to address signs of aging by replenishing lost volume and filling in wrinkles and folds. It is a safe and FDA-approved option for achieving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

During the procedure, a qualified medical professional injects Juvederm into targeted areas beneath the skin’s surface. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm attracts and retains moisture, plumping up the treated area and filling in lines and wrinkles. This results in smoother skin and a more youthful contour.

  • Nasolabial Folds:These are the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Juvederm can soften these folds, giving a more youthful appearance.
  • Marionette Lines:These lines extend downward from the corners of the mouth, and Juvederm can help minimize their appearance, reducing a “sad” or tired look.
  • Cheeks:Juvederm can add volume to the cheeks, creating a lifted and contoured effect.
  • Lips:Juvederm can enhance lip volume and shape, providing natural-looking plumpness and definition.
  • Chin and Jawline:Juvederm can be used to enhance the chin and jawline, improving facial balance and definition.

A Juvederm injection may cause some discomfort both during and after. A tiny needle is used to inject Juvederm straight into the skin. Lidocaine, an ingredient in Juvederm product, eases pain during injection; however, a doctor may decide to numb the injection site before injection. Before the operation, you may talk with your doctor about these possibilities.

When used by a trained and experienced healthcare provider, Juvederm is regarded as safe. Like any medical procedure, there may be some potential risks and side effects, but they are often minor and temporary. Bruising, redness, swelling, and discomfort at the injection site are typical side effects. In a few days, these symptoms normally disappear.

Infection, allergic responses, and lumps or bumps in the treated area are examples of severe consequences. Before receiving a Juvederm treatment, it’s essential to tell your healthcare professional about any current medical condition and medication.
