Q: What is Juvederm made from?
Juvederm is made from a hyaluronic acid (HA). What's interesting about HA is that it's a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the Juvederm family is made from a modified form of HA.
Q: What should I expect?
After a consultation to determine a treatment plan, you will schedule a 30-45 minute appointment for the treatment. Although Juvederm is pre-mixed with lidocane for comfort, we will ask that you apply a topical numbing cream 45 minutes prior to arriving for your appointment. After the injections are made, we will further ensure your comfort with cold packs for your treatment areas.
