Juvederm™ is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Now available with anesthetic within it, it is a more comfortable procedure. We use Juvederm™ injectable gel (Ultra and UltraPlus) under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds—the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvederm is also a very elegant product for lip enhancement.
Juvederm™ provides a smooth, natural look and feel—so everyone will notice (but no one will know)! In fact, studies show superior results of Juvéderm™ compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.
Is Juvederm™ Safe?
Yes. Because Juvederm™ is non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required.
How long does Juvederm™ last?
The average treatment results last six-12 months but even longer after repeated use.
How is Juvederm™ different from BOTOX® or Dysport®?
Juvederm™is a natural, cosmetic filler. In contrast, chemomodulators (BOTOX®, Dysport® or Xeomin®) are products that block nerve transmission work to relax the underlying muscles.
How is Juvederm™ different from Collagen?
Collagen is derived from animals (cow) and requires an allergy test. Collagen generally lasts only 2-3 months. Because Juvederm™ is non-animal based, it can be administered without pretesting, so no waiting is required. Duration of effect is also longer at 6-12 months.
How much do the treatments cost?
Treatments vary from $600-$1,800 per treatment depending on the number of vials used.
“Dear Dr. Brauer,
Please accept my sincere thank you for a “job” well done. The improvement that I see has helped so much in my overall appearance and attitude. Who knew a little Juvederm could go so far?! Your staff is just as wonderful as you are. I never felt so “welcome” or at ease in a medical setting before. Everyone is so friendly and helpful; and you are so knowledgeable! I will look forward to any future procedures that you will perform.”*
