What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid facial filler that may work to reduce wrinkles as well as add volume to the lips and cheeks. Hyaluronic acid works by attracting water to the skin.
What is Juvéderm® Volbella?
Juvéderm® Volbella is specially formulated to add fullness to the lips and reduce vertical lines around the mouth. The treatment may give the lips a supple and smooth appearance.
What is Juvéderm® Voluma?
The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm® Voluma adds fullness to the cheek area. The treatment may be recommended for men and women who have naturally flat cheeks and those who have lost the fat in the area due to aging.
What is Juvéderm® Vollure?
For moderate to severe wrinkles in the area between the nose and mouth, Dr. Barbour may recommend Juvéderm® Vollure.
What are the Benefits of Juvéderm® Treatments?
- No downtime
- Long-lasting results
- May delay the need for a facelift
- Treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes
What Should I Expect from a Juvéderm® Treatment?
The Juvéderm® gel is administered with a small needle at several injection sites along the wrinkle. You may feel a mild prick on the skin followed by a slight sensation of pressure as the gel enters the layers of skin.
After the treatment, you may notice some short-term symptoms, such as bleeding at the injection sites, swelling, tenderness and bruising. These symptoms are localized around the injection sites and should last no longer than two to three days.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The results of your Juvéderm® treatment may last one to two years, depending on the product used and how quickly your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid.
How Much Do Juvéderm® Treatments Cost?
The cost of Juvéderm® treatments are based upon several factors to be determined during your consultation. At the end of the appointment, we can provide information about pricing and our financing options.
