Juvederm

FAQ

Q: Can people with different skin tones/colors be treated with Juvederm?
A: Yes. In fact, JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has proven its safety and effectiveness in persons of color. Studies with JUVÉDERM® showed no increased risk of hyperpigmentation or hypertrophic scarring in patients of color.

Q: Does the correction last forever?
A: No. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.

Q: Is the treatment with Juvederm XC Injectable Gel painful?
A: Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency gel of JUVÉDERM® XC allows your nurse to administer it easily and smoothly. And, JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Additionally, JUVÉDERM® is formulated with lidocaine for a more comfortable treatment experience. Your nurse may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.

Q: How is Juvederm injectable gel used in treatment?
A: Your healthcare provider eases JUVÉDERM® injectable gel into the skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in and augment the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) and “marionette lines” (oral commissures). JUVÉDERM temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.

Q: What is cross-linked hyaluronic acid?
A: “Uncross-linked” hyaluronic acid in its natural form is in a liquid state. “Cross-linking” is the process through which hyaluronic acid is made into a gel product that can be injected into the skin for long-lasting results.

Q: What is Juvederm indicated for?
A: JUVÉDERM® Ultra injectable gels are indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases running from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth, aka smile lines or parentheses).

JUVÉDERM®

The JUVÉDERM® family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This smooth consistency gel aids in restoring your skin’s volume and smoothens facial wrinkles and folds. It helps get rid of “smile lines” and “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvederm™ is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance in your skin that adds volume and hydration. Juvederm™ is eased under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel that everyone will notice.

JUVÉDERM® is the first smooth consistency gel formulation and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA to last up to one year from initial treatment.1 JUVÉDERM® is developed using the proprietary HYLACROSS™ technology, an advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable, smooth gel that flows easily and consistently into the skin and provides a predictable result. All other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers currently on the market have a granular consistency gel. These granules can be seen under 2.4x magnification as opposed to the smooth consistency gel of the JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers.
