Juvederm® and Voluma®
Dentist Edgewater, MD
What are JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM Voluma® and how do they work?
JUVÉDERM® is a collection of cosmetic fillers, each made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in skin that helps it retain moisture, soft texture, and proper volume. JUVÉDERM® products are used to help restore skin to its age-correct texture and volume and to reverse the effects of wrinkles and skin volume loss.
Why should I consider JUVÉDERM® products?
Skin volume loss and wrinkling can cause your face to look tired or older than it should. By choosing treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you can restore the youthful look and feel of your skin.
How many treatments will I need to see results?
Most patients see their desired results in only one treatment.
How long will the results last?
The results with JUVÉDERM® products generally last for about 9-12 months for a single treatment.
Is there anything I need to do after the treatment?
For the first 24 hours following treatment with JUVÉDERM® products, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive exposure to sun or heat, and alcoholic beverages. You may experience some minor temporary redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site.
Does treatment with JUVÉDERM® products require any incisions in the skin?
No, there are no incisions required with treatment, which means that recovery time is minimal.
How will I know if JUVÉDERM® products are right for me?
Ask our doctor for a consultation and recommended treatment options. We will consider your personal goals, overall health, and any medications you are taking when advising you whether JUVÉDERM® products may be right for you.
