What is JUVÉDERM?
Fight against the signs of aging with the JUVÉDERM family of injectable dermal fillers. From treating lines and wrinkles to creating full, plump lips, JUVÉDERM dermal fillers at Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville, FL provide beautiful results that look natural. JUVÉDERM treatments may be used alone or with other nonsurgical treatments to meet your needs and goals. JUVÉDERM injectables are formulated with synthetic HA (hyaluronic acid) that can increase the skin's natural supply of collagen and HA for supple, healthy skin. Talk to board-certified dermatologist Dr. Mary Pentel about rejuvenating your appearance without the time and expense of surgery with the JUVÉDERM collection of injectable dermal fillers.
- JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC fill medium or severe wrinkles on the face, like parenthesis lines and other lines around the mouth and nose. Depending on the formula used, results can last 12 – 18 months.
- JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC add volume to the upper lip, lower lip, or both while reducing the appearance of fine, vertical lines on the lips. The results are typically visible for up to one year.
Is juvéderm right for me?
The ideal candidates for JUVÉDERM injectable treatments are women and men who have facial wrinkles or lines they would like to fix. It can also be ideal for people who have age-related volume loss or naturally thin lips. JUVÉDERM dermal filler injections at Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center are great if you want to improve your facial appearance while avoiding the recovery time and expense of plastic surgery (like facelifts, eyelid lifts, brow lifts, and lip implants).
how is juvéderm administered?
JUVÉDERM treatments generally only take 15 – 30 minutes, based on how many areas need treatment. We'll clean your skin and then mark the injection spots. To decrease discomfort throughout the treatment, JUVÉDERM fillers contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). Following your treatment, you may return to your normal routine; however, you should avoid strenuous activities like weight lifting or running for at least 24 hours. You should also take care to avoid touching your face immediately after your JUVEDERM injections, which could move the filler into unintended areas.
What happens after my treatment?
You should see a visible improvement immediately following your JUVÉDERM injection, but you may also develop light swelling or bruising in the treated area for 7 – 10 days. Depending on the formula used, results have been known to last 12 – 18 months. Patients who have received multiple treatments over a period of 2 – 3 years generally experience longer-lasting outcomes. Talk to Dr. Pentel about when to book a touch-up treatment at Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center to maintain your results.
