What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that restores volume in the skin for a smoother, plumper, more youthful appearance. HA is a substance in your body that keeps your skin supple and moisturized. As you age, your HA levels decline, causing your skin to become thinner, drier, and less responsive. Your skin may appear saggier and crepey, while your cheeks hollow.

Juvéderm is a safe, temporary solution for volume loss that can instantly take years off your appearance.

What types of wrinkles can Juvederm treat?

Juvéderm and other dermal fillers target static wrinkles, which result from volume loss. When the fat and volume in your skin break down, your skin starts to sag. This process leaves your skin without the structure and support it needs to look youthful. 

Fillers restore this structure to provide your skin with a support system and treat static wrinkles such as:

  • Nasolabial folds

  • Under eye bags

  • Chin wrinkles

  • Lip lines

  • Thinning lips

  • Hollow cheeks

  • Disappearing jawline

  • Crepey hands

Along with wrinkles, Juvéderm can reshape and enhance the lips, define the cheekbones, and fill in depressed acne scars.

Dermal fillers can’t treat dynamic wrinkles, which develop from repeated muscle movement. Also called expression lines, dynamic wrinkles tend to form in the upper half of the face, particularly around the forehead and eyes. The team offers Botox® to minimize the appearance of these lines.

What can I expect from Juvederm treatments?

Juvéderm treatments require no preparation and take only a few minutes to inject. When you arrive for your consultation, the Brilliant Beauty team examines your skin and face before mapping out your injection sites. Next, they apply a topical anesthetic for your comfort and inject the filler into the predetermined areas.

After your treatment, you may experience minor swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection sites, but these side effects should subside quickly.

How long does Juvederm last?

Juvéderm typically lasts between nine and 12 months. You can return to Brilliant Beauty for maintenance treatments to extend your results. The team may also recommend combining your Juvéderm treatments with Botox for complete rejuvenation.
