Juvederm is a gel-like product called hylauronic acid, found in our skin. It increases the fullness in the treatment areas, helping to restore volume, or reduce wrinkles.
Treatments are well tolerated, and for sensitive areas, or if requested, we can use a topical numbing gel prior to treatments to make injections virtually pain free.
The results are immediate, and continue to improve over the weeks following injection, lasting up to 9 months.
