What is Juvederm Injectable Gel?

Juvederm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvederm injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds.

How Juvederm Works

Juvederm injectable gel dermal filler is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. Your healthcare professional eases Juvederm under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis - the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis - to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds. Juvederm injectable gel is great for your laugh lines, smile lines or parentheses (nasolabial folds), or marionette lines (oral commissures).

Juvederm is a next-generation filler. It is made from hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to hydrate and add volume. Hyaluronic acid may diminish with age, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvederm injectable gel works to correct this by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and folds.

Immediate Results

With Juvederm the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there's minimal recovery or downtime. So you can step into your doctor's office for treatment and step right back into your life.

Benefits of Juvederm Injectable Gel

Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvederm injectable gel offer a safe and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. In fact, they are the fastest growing nonsurgical aesthetic procedure in the United States according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Choosing Juvederm Injectable Gel makes a difference: Not all dermal fillers are the same.

  • Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler FDA approved to last up to 1 year. Our unique manufacturing process provides a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for long-lasting results. It also creates a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Only Juvederm is so smooth - other hyaluronic acid fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels.
  • A next-generation filler: Juvederm is a next-generation non-animal dermal filler. No allergy skin tests needed prior to receiving treatment.
  • Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvederm injectable gel and another dermal filler preferred Juvederm.
  • Juvederm injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

What to Expect During Treatment

Because Juvederm injectable gel is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. So you can make an appointment to stop by your healthcare professional's office for treatment on the way home from work or the gym, or even while the kids are at soccer practice - and get right back to your life. Here's what to expect when you visit your healthcare professional's office for treatment. (Please note that although this experience is typical, the routine at your healthcare professional's office may be different.)

Before you go: Some doctors recommend that you avoid any medications that can prolong bleeding, such as aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), for at least a week prior to treatment in order to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.

Before the procedure: Although anesthesia is not required, your healthcare professional may use topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.

The procedure: Your healthcare professional will ease the Juvederm injectable gel under your skin to augment, or fill, wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, your healthcare professional may gently massage the treated areas. The procedure is quick and easy. The injection itself usually takes only about 15 minutes.

After the Procedure

With Juvederm, there is minimal recovery or downtime.

For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. After the treatment, some temporary injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bumps. Studies have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period.

Seeing Results: You should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing. And one treatment could smooth your lines and wrinkles for up to 1 year! However, results may vary and correction is temporary. Supplemental touch ip treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.

Cataract Surgery

Cataract patients now have an option for excellent near and far vision after cataract surgery! Previously, individuals suffering from cataracts had only a mono-focal lens implant option after surgery. New multifocal IOL technology can now decrease dependence on glasses after surgery and give you a much broader range of vision. If you are seeking IOL lens options in Temecula, consult one of our qualified and experienced Inland Eye Specialists' surgeons to help you see better!
