Juvéderm™ is an injectable dermal filler which has helped millions of women look younger and more beautiful. Juvederm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Lupo and Dr. Fontenot place Juvederm® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds
Dr. Lupo and Dr. Fontenot uses Juvéderm in the treatment of:
- Lip enhancement (for fuller lips)
- Deep lines near the mouth (nasolabial folds)
While there are many injectable fillers available today, Juvéderm has proven to be very safe and effective. It is the only hyaluronic acid filler approved by the FDA whose results last six months to a year.
How it Works
Hyaluronic acid naturally maintains hydration and volume in your skin, which is lost as people age. However, when injected, Juvéderm bonds with the water in the skin and increases its volume 1000 times. This helps to expand the skin and push out the wrinkles. As a lip enhancer, Juvéderm helps to create full and beautiful lips. An added benefit is its ability to stimulate collagen production to create more elastic, younger looking skin.
Using a thin needle, Juvéderm is injected into the subdermal layer of skin where wrinkles appear. The amount used depends on the severity of the wrinkles in the area. A local anesthetic is used to ensure patient comfort. The results of Juvéderm are almost immediate and there is no downtime.
There is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. Side effects are rare and any redness or tenderness is limited to the injection sites and will usually subside in a few days.
