Juvederm is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to provide 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds, and for lip augmentation.

Juvederm products are a smooth consistency gel, compared to some hyaluronic gel products that have a granular consistency.  Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body and it works by holding water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds temporary volume and a smoother apperance to the skin.

There may be some discomfort during and after the injection. Juvederm is injected directly into the skin with a fine needle. Juvederm products contain the local anesthetic lidocaine to help lessen discomfort during injection.

Correction with Juvederm is temporary. Re-injections may be needed, typically between 9 months and one year after the initial injection. Smaller injections (about half the amount) are needed for repeat procedures.
