How Safe are Juvederm Injections

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a collection of FDA approved injectable fillers. Using hyaluronic acid, the product adds volume to various areas of the face. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body. It brings moisture, nutrients, and volume to the face. This building block of the skin breaks down over time leading to the formation of lines and wrinkles. When injected under the skin, Juvéderm fills in the targeted lines and wrinkles and adds volume or contours to give patients natural, long lasting results.

This helps determine which product to use, how much, and where to inject it. It only takes a few moments as the product is injected under the skin. The results are immediate. You can leave the office with restored volume. Juvéderm injections do not require downtime but your doctor may recommend avoiding physical activity or rubbing your face. Because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, there is little chance of a negative reaction. Mild side effects such as swelling or bruising may occur but should subside within a week.
