Juvéderm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds. Juvéderm® is especially effective at targeting nasolabial folds – the lines that run from the corners of your nose down to the corners of your mouth. Like Restylane, Juvéderm® uses hyaluronic acid – a sugar compound that naturally occurs in your skin’s dermis layer – to replenish your skin’s volume and bolster its elasticity.
One of the main advantages of Juvéderm® is its soft gel consistency, which tends to provide a smoother, more naturalistic appearance when compared to other dermal fillers. Juvéderm® is also capable of maintaining your results for six to nine months. If you undergo a follow-up treatment a few weeks after your first injection, your Juvéderm® results may last even longer.
Apart from nasolabial folds, Juvéderm® is also effective at treating nasogenian grooves (the folds between your nose and cheeks), enhancing lip volume, and reshaping the contours of your cheeks. Juvéderm® side effects are rare, but can include mild discomfort at the site of your injection, redness, and tenderness. These side effects usually fade by themselves after a few days.
