To find out how Juvederm can restore your younger face, call or schedule an appointment online today.
Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler that is used to give fullness to your face, allowing you to appear younger and healthier. There are several types of Juvederm for you and your provider to choose from depending on what you want out of the treatment. For example, to lift and contour your cheeks, your provider may recommend Juvederm Voluma® XC.
The active ingredient in Juvederm is called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by your body. Hyaluronic acid levels decrease as you age, making it harder for your cells to hold their structure. With injections of hyaluronic acid, your skin starts to produce more collagen, a protein that gives structure and fullness to your face (among its many other purposes). Each Juvederm injection also contains some pain-relieving lidocaine, which minimizes your discomfort during the procedure.

Plus, the results are almost immediate, so you can enjoy your new look right after you’re done!
Like any minimally invasive procedure, Juvederm injections come with a few potential side effects. To minimize your risk, you’ll need to follow all the instructions that your provider gives you for preparation and aftercare. You might experience:
Any of these side effects will go away within a couple of weeks after your injection, and they’re usually no cause for concern.
