What is JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM is a cosmetic dermal filler that restores the volume to facial skin that has lost elasticity due to age. It also fills in fine lines and wrinkles to smooth the skin. This filler contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that gives the skin its moisture. When injected, the skin’s moisture returns to the area giving it the ability to look fuller.
What are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM is used to reduce the signs of aging, including facial volume and wrinkles, and offers the following benefits:
- Quick results that improve over time
- Fast in-office procedure
- Long-lasting results – up to a year
- Little risk of adverse reaction
- No recovery or downtime
Who is a Good Candidate for JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM is very effective for anyone who has lost volume in their facial skin or has lines and wrinkles that are noticeable.
How Do I Prepare for My JUVÉDERM Treatments?
JUVÉDERM treatments require no preparation. It is common, if time permits, to have the treatments following consultations.
What is Involved in My JUVÉDERM Treatments?
The procedure begins by Dr. Core determining exactly where to inject JUVÉDERM. It is then injected into the areas targeted using a very fine needle. If necessary, a numbing agent is applied to the area to make you as comfortable as possible. A JUVÉDERM treatment typically takes only 30 minutes
What to Expect After JUVÉDERM
After JUVÉDERM treatments, there is no downtime or recovery. You can go back to work or your normal routine. If you have any swelling or redness, we can give you an ice pack to quickly diminish it.
When Will I See the Results from JUVÉDERM Treatments?
Typically, the results from JUVÉDERM are immediately noticeable and improve over time. They last up to nine months and are easily maintained with follow-up treatment sessions.
How Much Does JUVÉDERM Cost in Birmingham?
JUVÉDERM injections vary with cost depending on how many areas are treated, the number of injections necessary to achieve the desired look and whether other treatments are performed at the same time.
