Juvederm for Wrinkle Correction

Juvderm® is a smooth, replenishing, injectable gel used to refresh your appearance by smoothing away unwanted lines and bringing back the natural contours of the face. Juvéderm® is the leading facial filler in Canada and the US and is made of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. When injected, Juvéderm® combines with the water in your skin to instantly smooth lines and wrinkles, enhance lips and restore lost volume to the cheeks and jawline. As an added benefit, hyaluronic acid injected in the skin can even naturally stimulate collagen production and maintain skin hydration. We use only Juvderm®XC (Extra Comfort) products which contain lidocaine to make your treatments even more comfortable.

Juvéderm results are instantaneous, look very natural and may last up to a year with virtually no downtime.

Juvéderm® is priced per syringe and ranges from $450 - $550 per syringe depending on the type of Juvéderm® used the type of Juvéderm® used for your treatment depends on the area being treated and your personal goals.

Avoid taking Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) such as such as Ibuprofen, Motrin and Aleve. In addition, very high doses of some Vitamins and supplements can thin your blood and increase the chance of bruising. Please notify Dr. Bowdridge if you are taking Warfarin, Coumadin, Plavix, or any other blood thinners for a medical condition.

Post Treatment Care:

  • For the first 24 hours following your treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, alcoholic beverages and Ibuprofen as these may increase the risk of bruising.
  • Be gentle with the area for the first few days following your treatment . You may wash your face and apply make-up as usual but try not to manipulate or rub the area excessively.
  • It is recommended that you sleep on your back for the first few days following your treatment. We recommend using the enVy – Anti-aging and Wellness Pillow to get the most out of your facial filler treatments.
  • Facials and facial laser treatments are not recommended for two weeks following Juvéderm® treatments.
  • Note that any bumps or marks from the needles will resolve themselves within a few hours.
  • If you do develop a bruise, it will resolve itself like any other bruise.

What is Juvéderm®?

JUVÉDERM® is a facial filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA) – a naturally occurring sugar found in your skin. It combines with water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles and enhance lips. The smooth gel provides instant results that are long lasting and natural looking.

What areas can I treat with Juvéderm®?

JUVÉDERM® smoothes unwanted lines, restores natural contours and lost fullness in your cheeks, and enhances your lips to give you a youthful, natural and refreshed-looking appearance.

JUVÉDERM® is used for facial rejuvenation and enhancement. It can:

  • Soften smile lines (naso-labial folds)
  • Soften marionette lines
  • Lift the corners of the mouth
  • Soften the chin
  • Accentuate and restore lost fullness in your cheeks
  • Enhance the size and shape of your lips
  • Restore the contour of your jaw line

The most appropriate lines to treat with JUVÉDERM® are those that are described as static – the lines you can see when your face is still. JUVÉDERM® can also be used to enhance your lips or accentuate cheeks for soft, subtle results that leave you looking your best.

What makes Juvéderm® different from other facial fillers?

JUVÉDERM® employs a patented technology to create a smooth consistency gel that gives you a smooth natural look and feel unlike other hyaluronic acid facial fillers (that have a granular consistency). In addition, JUVÉDERM® XC (extra comfort) is a hyaluronic acid wrinkle filler containing lidocaine, a pain reliever that allows you to be more comfortable during and after treatment.

How long does the treatment usually take?

The injection process is quick and easy and takes only about 15-45 minutes, depending on the areas treated. You'll also need to allow time to consult with your cosmetic doctor prior to treatment.

Is a treatment with Juvéderm® painful?

JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Because JUVÉDERM® is also available with pain-reducing lidocaine, the whole injection process is a more comfortable experience.

How long does Judederm® last?

The unique formulation of JUVÉDERM® is clinically proven to last up to one year with one treatment.

What are the side effects?

JUVÉDERM® is generally well tolerated. Possible side effects are mild to moderate in nature and generally last less than 7 days. They may include temporary skin reactions such as redness, tenderness and bruising which may be covered by makeup.
