As part of our aesthetics week, we are taking a detailed look at the various non-surgical treatments Dr. Walker offers at the Atlanta ENT Aesthetics Center. In this blog, we will answer some of the Frequently Asked Questions about Juvederm®
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler that is used by plastic surgeons to address the most challenging, deep wrinkles of the face. Juvederm® is a gel made from hyaluronic acid, commonly referred to as HA. HA is a natural substance that provides added hydration, and thus volume, to your face.
Where is Juvederm® most effective?
Juvederm® is effective in many areas of the face, but is designed for filling in deep wrinkles below the outer layer of skin. Because of this, it is most commonly used on smile lines, along the nose to the corners of the mouth, and under puffy lower eyelids. It can be used to sculpt fuller lips or to accentuate the cheek bone.
Are Juvederm® treatments painful?
Juvederm® treatments are no more painful than any other injectable treatments. You will receive a numbing agent prior to the Juvederm® injections. You may experience some mild temporary swelling following the treatment. Some patients experience very mild bruising, which is temporary. If bruising does occur, it is easy to cover with makeup.
How long does a Juvederm® treatment take?
The Juvederm® injections typically take about 15 minutes to complete, depending on the site and volume injected.
How soon will I see results from Juvederm® treatments?
You will notice immediate results following your injections. However, over the first two weeks, you will see continued improvement. This is because the Juvederm® softens and draws added moisture to the area during this time.
How long does a Juvederm® treatment last?
Juvederm® treatments generally last up to a full year even though this varies between patients. Over time, touch up injections may be needed, on a case-by-case basis.
