Juvéderm is a smooth-consistency gel used to lift unwanted wrinkles and natural facial contours for up to a year at Nikko Dermatology. For patients over the age of 21, we can inject this hyaluronic acid-based product into the skin to increase volume and structure thus reducing fines lines and wrinkles. In most cases, your skin's aged appearance can be improved with the proper placement of injectable cosmetic fillers. Our board-certified Dermatologist, Dr. Anthony Nikko, will determine the proper cosmetic filler and amount needed for enhancement and maximum benefit based on your aesthetic goals and private skin assessment.
Areas of Concern
Individuals who are seeking to treat wrinkles without having to undergo surgery, are usually good candidates for Juvéderm. Depending on how deep and how many wrinkles are being treated typically determines the filler product, but Juvéderm works well for patients who wish to improve moderate facial lines or augment the lips. Those with deeper lines and creases may be better suited for thicker filler material.
Patients should expect to see results shortly following their treatment. Juvéderm contains the anesthetic lidocaine, so patients should not experience discomfort, although there may be some redness at or around the injection sites after the treatment has been completed. The dermatologist may gently rub the areas of the face to help the filler spread evenly and smoothly. Treatment is expected to last up to a year and many patients return after that time frame.
How To Treat
Juvéderm is an outpatient treatment typically administered right inside our office. Similar to other injection treatments, the injection sites will be marked on your face using a washable pen. The amount of Juvéderm administered is dependent upon the depth of the wrinkles and location areas. Some patients will need more or less of the product depending on the desired results. Typical treatments last approximately 30 minutes, but some can take up to an hour.
