What is the JUVÉDERM® family of fillers?
Fillers are injectables designed to replace volume, add contour, diminish lines, reduce asymmetries and achieve a liquid face lift. JUVÉDERM® fillers are the top filler choice of Dr. Miguel Delgado and Ariel Kirk, RN. The JUVÉDERM® fillers are comprised of hyaluronic acid which is a natural sugar complex found in our skin tissues.
Being an injectable filler, JUVÉDERM® has different mechanisms compared to other types of anti-wrinkle injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic. At Dr. Delgado’s state-of-the-art facility, he consults with his patients to understand their cosmetic goals and carefully plans a procedure that is suitable for them.
YOUR JUVÉDERM® TREATMENT
For JUVÉDERM® treatments, a thorough medical history, assessment and consultation will occur. Then, the treatment plan will be reviewed with the patient. Commonly, markings will be made on the patient’s face to highlight areas where the injections will be done. During treatment, a fine needle and/or cannula will be used to safely inject the JUVÉDERM® in the desired areas of the face. JUVÉDERM® is a quick and easy procedure with almost no pain and there is virtually no recovery period required. However, just like with any other type of injectable, there may be slight bruising and swelling at the injection site. Fortunately, these are the two most common side effects.
What can JUVÉDERM® TREAT?
As we age, our skin loses volume from certain parts of the face and this can cause features of the face to sink and droop. JUVÉDERM® has all the right qualities to treat these areas. Below are some common places where JUVÉDERM® is used:
- Midface: to restore volume loss
- Lips: to provide hydration, provide structure to thin lips and plump for fuller lips
- Vertical Lip Lines: that extend off the lip border around the mouth
- Nasolabial Folds: lines that run from the nose to the sides of the mouth
- Marionette Lines: creases that stretch from the sides of mouth to the jawline
- Weak chin: to add contour and volume to a weak or recessed chin

IS JUVÉDERM® RIGHT FOR ME?
Even though sagging skin and wrinkles are more common in people who are over the age of thirty, they can still affect younger people. Thankfully, JUVÉDERM® can be used for individuals throughout their lives. For majority of the patients, the results of JUVÉDERM® can last anywhere from six to nine months, but in some cases even up to one full year.
