Dermatology, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in New York City (NYC) and Manhattan
If you are unhappy with changes in your facial appearance due to aging, injectable fillers like Juvéderm can help. If you have hollows under your eyes, sunken cheeks, thin lips, or deep facial folds, then Juvéderm can correct them to give you a smoother, younger-looking face. Juvéderm is derived from a compound found naturally in your skin that diminishes with age, and its rejuvenating effects can last for up to a year.
Juvéderm is one of many cosmetic fillers we offer at the Juva Skin and Laser Center. Which one is right for you depends on your skin and your cosmetic goals. To get personalized recommendations, please call (888) 610-3133 or email us today to schedule a consultation.
What Is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is an injectable filler that is derived from hyaluronic acid, like Restylane. Hyaluronic acid is a moisturizer found naturally in your body, most often in the skin, joints, and eyes. The hyaluronic acid used in Juvéderm is derived from a natural, non-animal source, so it's safe and hypoallergenic--you don't have to have an allergy test before getting treatment.
Juvéderm is created in a smooth gel, designed to make injections easier and results smoother. In addition, Juvéderm is available with Lidocaine included to further reduce discomfort associated with injection.
Where Juvéderm Can Be Used
Juvéderm is a very flexible injectable filler that can be used in most places where additional volume is desired. This includes:
- Lip augmentation
- Hollows under the eyes
- Sunken cheeks
- Nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines around the mouth)
Because of its smoothness, some people prefer the results of Juvéderm in lip augmentation and treatment wherever the skin is very thin. Although Juvéderm can last for up to a year, the length of results depends on the area being treated, with lips lasting the shortest and under eye hollows the longest.
