What Is Juvéderm®?

As we age, our skin and body undergo structural changes. There is a general redistribution of soft tissue and fatty deposits throughout the body. The skin also changes, with some structural layers thinning and others thickening. Dermal fillers such as Juvéderm help reverse some of the visible signs of aging. By adding volume to thinned areas and plumping out facial lines, signs of aging can be erased. There are a variety of different products with differing indications depending on location and desired goal.

What areas can Juvéderm treat?

Juvéderm is FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler, which comes in different formulations – Voluma, Ultra XC and XC. Each of the formulations has been developed to fill a different need: lift cheeks, smooth lines, plump lips and fill facial lines. As with other fillers, it is injected into the skin to create the improvement.

Does Juvéderm have any side effects?

The most common side effects of Juvéderm injectable gel are swelling, redness, pain, bruising and tenderness in and around the injection sites. They typically go away within a week. Improvements have been reported to last between one and two years.

  • Dr. Kressel and his team were all very kind and kept me comfortable while waiting for the surgery. The before care, during, and aftercare from him and his team made this experience worth it. I knew I was in good hands from the beginning, and I'd recommend Dr. Kressel to anyone! The results from his work are phenomenal and I am glad he was my doctor.

  • Dr. Kressel went above and beyond, meeting me outside of operating hours to stitch up my face. Everything went well and the stitches were removed less than a week later with minimal scarring.
