What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a filler that has been approved by the FDA. It can be used to reduce the
appearance of wrinkles or add volume to areas on the face. Juvederm is made from
hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that is naturally found in the connective tissues in the
body. The results of this procedure can last up to one year.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Juvederm?
This procedure is great for patients who have moderate to severe folds and wrinkles. It is
also great for patients who want to increase the fullness of their lips or fill out the areas
around their eyes or at the top of their nose.
What Can I Expect?
Prior to administering Juvederm, Dr. Zieg will apply a topical anesthetic to the areas that will be treated. After that, he will inject the Juvederm using a very fine needle. Are There Any Side Effects Associated With Juvederm? Hyaluronic acid is very safe because it is naturally found in the body. Swelling and redness are common side effects that may last a few days. Some patients may also experience skin firmness and mild bruising. These problems may last for a few days also.
