Juvederm Newport Beach
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid gel, used as a temporary dermal filler. It is FDA approved for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. The gel is injected into the deeper layers of the skin and helps to smooth out surface irregularities. The most common area for Juvederm injection is the nasolabial fold, which extends from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth. The depth of injection will depend on the surface change desired. The volume correction from Juvederm lasts approximately six to nine months.
Juvederm may also be used elsewhere however, other fillers have been developed over the last few years with more specific indications.
The risks of all fillers will be discussed prior to the injections, but are commonly limited to injection site redness and bruising. The significant advantage of these hyaluronic acid fillers is that they can be completely dissolved within 24 hours if desired.
