Juvederm Lip Injections in South Florida
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. The smooth consistency gel helps to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, such as “smile lines”. Juvederm® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

What can patients expect following treatment?
Side effects are usually mild to moderate, lasting 7 days or less and may include temporary injection site reactions like redness, pain, firmness, swelling and bumps. With Juvederm® the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate. Plus, there’s minimal recovery/downtime.
How many treatments are required?
Effects are not permanent and will vary in length depending on the type of Juvederm® used. Therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal results.
