Juvederm injectable filler is a hyaluronic acid gel that is frequently used by Dr, Freund to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm is a smooth injectable hyluronic acid gel that can restore the skins’ volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, including those highly visible ones around the mouth and nose and on the forehead.
Juvederm provides a smooth, long-lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and fullness to the skin, giving a healthy, youthful appearance. As you age, the lines that form around your nose and mouth become more noticeable.

Juvederm is most commonly used to correct these different types of facial lines, including “parentheses lines” (nasolabial folds), smile lines, vertical lip lines, and marionette lines (lines formed near the chin). It can also help to define the lip border and give the appearance of a fuller lip. Juvederm is great for smoothing fine to deep wrinkles around the mouth, marionette lines, improving the definition of your lips, and adding volume, shape and proportion to your lips, if desired. Dr. Freund also uses Juvederm to fill in frown lines between your eyebrows, soften deep nasolabial folds & marionette lines, correct the turn-down at the corners of the mouth, and smooth out facial scars, including acne scars. Juvederm is available in two formulations to allow for a tailored treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.
Juvederm contains the highest concentration of non-animal, cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any dermal filler currently available. It is currently the only approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in patients of color.
Juvederm is developed using the proprietary Hylacross technology, a technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable, smooth gel that flows easily into the skin and creates a smooth, natural look and feel. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers utilize a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be seen under magnification as opposed to the smooth formulation used in Juvederm.
HOW IS IT PERFORMED?
Juvederm is administered in a smooth-flowing injection, allowing your provider a high level of control for individualized, tailored facial contouring and for achieving a smooth, natural look. The procedure is simple and quick, and the results are practically instantaneous. Numbing cream may be used before the treatment to optimize your comfort during the short procedure. We also offer the option of Juvederm XC, which is formulated with Lidocaine for a more comfortable experience.
WHAT RESULTS CAN BE EXPECTED?
Juvederm injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and one treatment could smooth your lines and wrinkles for up to one year. Ask our injector what you should expect from your initial treatment and when they would recommend rescheduling another appointment.
WHEN WILL I START TO SEE RESULTS FROM JUVEDERM?
You will see a visible improvement immediately after treatment. Our injector will work with you on an individual basis to achieve the most desirable, natural looking results. The full results are gauged after about 10 days.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST FROM JUVEDERM?
Most patients appreciate its long lasting effects, with many experiencing from 8 months to a year or more of correction from a single treatment. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal long lasting results.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS FROM JUVEDERM?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is typically not long lasting. The most common side effects include temporary injections site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps and bruising.
