Juvéderm is an injectable gel filler, providing a non-invasive and non-surgical method for correcting wrinkles and unwanted facial folds. Recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Juvéderm is a “next-generation” dermal filler, and has become one of the most popular non-surgical anti-aging treatments available in the nation. The smooth consistency of this special gel helps to:
- Immediately restore instantly restore your skin’s volume
- Smooth away facial wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of folds (including your “laugh lines” or “parentheses)
What is Juvéderm ?
Juvéderm is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin. This dermal filler is natural and biodegradable and contains no animal products to produce a smooth, consistent gel. This means Juvéderm can produce a softer, smoother result than its competitor, Restylane , though for many applications they are essentially equivalent. Juvéderm is ideal for the lips and under-eye hollows, whereas Restylane is typically recommended for your nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Juvéderm also promotes healthy skin by providing hydration, while restoring your skin’s volume and underlying tissue simultaneously. Because it is created from highly innovative technologies, Juvéderm produces favorable and long-lasting results. It contains a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than many other fillers, making it a favorite among Maryland cosmetic surgeons.

A fine needle is used to place Juvéderm beneath your skin to add volume and diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Results can be seen instantly and can last longer than six months. Common areas treated include laugh lines around your mouth, marionette lines that run from the corners of your mouth downward, and nasolabial lines that stretch from your nose to the sides of your mouth.
Juvéderm is a quick and effective treatment. The injections take up to 15 or 20 minutes and your Maryland cosmetic surgeon will use a topical numbing cream or local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort. Results can be seen immediately and you can enjoy your normal activities right after treatment.
