Juvederm, a collection of fillers used for different areas of the face, adds volume to the cheek area, smooths parentheses lines and wrinkles, and plumps lips. Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid which is a substance naturally found in the skin.
Juvederm is injected into the treatment area and results are seen almost immediately. Dr. El Asmar may recommend multiple treatments to see optimal results, and a few weeks for the full effect to be apparent. Juvederm contains an anesthetic (lidocaine) that reduces discomfort during the procedure.
Side effects are moderate and shouldn't last longer than 4 weeks after receiving treatment. Some common side effects include redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bruising in the injected areas. Juvederm, like all skin injections, comes with a risk of infection. Patients report little to mild discomfort during treatment. Dr. El Asmar also offers additional anesthetic options to ensure patient comfort during Juvederm treatment.
According to a clinical study, 90% of people reported increased satisfaction with their facial appearance 6 months after their Juvederm treatment. Juvederm results generally last for up to 2 years and patients require less of the product to maintain their results. Patients report natural-looking and long-lasting results.
