What is Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel? Learn more. It is a dermal filler to add volume to the face and reduce wrinkles. Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel can be injected into cheeks, chin, lips, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, oral commisures, and tear troughs to improve one’s facial appearance by adding desired volume and fullness to these areas.
Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel is a syringe of hyaluronic acid gel, a natural protein found in our bodies. Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel adds hydration and volume to the injection site. After the initial injection, Juvéderm draws water into the area, adding plumpness and fullness gradually over the next few days.
It is important to note that after one receives a Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel treatment, any type of facial, chemical peel, or waxing should not be done for two weeks, to allow the product to settle.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Prior to the procedure, the areas are marked to promote accurate Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel placement. Varying types of anesthetic (topical or local anesthetic injection) are used, depending on the area being treated, to minimize any discomfort. Ice is applied to offer additional anesthetic and to minimize bruising. The Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel is slowly placed into the designated areas.
What to Expect After the Procedure
Immediately after the procedure, the area will be slightly swollen and red. Patients will be sent home with reusable ice packs to use throughout the day. This helps minimize swelling and bruising, while providing comfort. Juvéderm ® Injectable Gel lasts about six months to one year.
