What is Juvederm®?

Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid filler created by the manufacturer, Allergan, the same company that manufactures the neurotoxin, Botox®. The following Juvederm® products can be used to smooth fine lines, restore volume loss and augment structure to various areas of the face:

Juvederm® Vollure™ XC
Juvederm® Ultra XC

Am I a candidate for Juvederm® injections?

The primary consideration for treatment is the characteristics of your anti-aging needs. Dr. Hooper or Dr. Jackson will perform a detailed analysis of your anatomy and determine if Juvederm® products are the best treatment for you.

How are Juvederm® injections performed?

We apply a topical numbing agent 20-30 minutes before injections to ensure the most comfortable experience for our patients. Juvederm® products also contain a premixed local anesthetic, increasing comfort during injection. Juvederm® products are pre-loaded in a sterile syringe and expertly injected by Dr. Hooper or Dr. Jackson.

What is recovery like after a Juvederm® treatment?

You may or may not experience mild redness, tenderness or bruising after filler treatment. We recommend stopping any blood thinners not prescribed by a physician for 1-2 weeks before filler injections to prevent the risk of bruising. Examples of these are Aspirin, NSAIDS like Advil (Ibuprofen) or Aleve (Naproxen Sodium), Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Ginkgo, Green Tea, Garlic, Ginseng, St John’s Wort, and alcoholic beverages.

How long do results from Juvederm® last?

Juvederm® products can last anywhere from several months to several years depending on the consistency of the product, location of injection, and the individual’s ability to metabolize the product.
