Juvederm is manufactured by Allergan, the makers of Botox Cosmetic. It is an injectable gel that is used to restore fullness to lips, minimize nasolabial folds (the lines that run from your nose to the corner of your mouth), reduce or eliminate the marionette lines (the lines that run from your mouth corners down to your chin). The product typically lasts 9 to 12 months. You will see the immediate results following your treatment. Initially you may feel some firmness in the treated area. This will slowly go away within one to two weeks. As with any injectable treatment there is always the possibility of developing a small bruise. If bruising does occur it will usually resolve with one to two weeks.
There is no “One size fits all” treatment with Juvederm. During your consultation Dr. Redmon will listen to your concerns and customize your Juvederm treatment to fit your facial contours. Dr. Redmon is an expert in facial anatomy. He knows exactly where to place Juvederm and how much is needed in order to achieve your desired results. Be sure that whoever you choose to perform your Juvederm treatments is following Allergan guidelines.
