What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a type of dermal filler is used to treat moderate to
severe facial wrinkles and folds in the skin. It can reduce the
appearance of the nasolabials – the folds that run from the side
of the nose to the corners of the mouth, as well as the deep
nasogenian folds between your cheeks and nose. Juvederm
can also be used to plump up lip volume and to reshape the
contours of the cheeks.

A transparent gel filler that is injected into the skin, Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, which improves the skin’s elasticity and gives it a smooth appearance. 
The product was approved by the FDA in June 2006.

The Benefits of Juvederm

Juvederm has been hailed by doctors and patients alike for its ability to enhance your appearance by adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the area that you want treated. The biocompatible compound contained in Juvederm was designed to be naturally absorbed by the body. Within six to nine months of your procedure, the Juvederm should be completely eliminated from your body.

Juvederm has a number of advantages over treatments and materials used in the past, particularly those that gave the skin a rigid-looking appearance. One of the primary benefits is that the gel is especially pliant, which helps to give the patient smoother, more natural-looking skin. Also, the effects of Juvederm have been proved to last longer – for at least six to nine months. If you diligently follow your doctor’s post-procedure instructions, you may find that your treatment is working even longer than your doctor predicted. In addition, you can have a follow-up treatment within a few weeks or your original Juvederm injection.

The Side Effects of Juvederm

Though side effects of this type of procedure are rare, they can happen. The most common side effects associated with Juvederm are tenderness, redness, or pain at the injection site. If you experience any of these problems, give them a few days to subside. It is quite uncommon for discoloration to appear from a Juvederm injection, but if it does, it can be reversed. Other side effects are swelling, firmness, bruising and bumps, all of which should disappear in about a week.

The Cost of a Juvederm Procedure

The cost of Juvederm typically ranges from between $800 and $1,300 for each syringe used. Depending on the formula used and other factors, it may be necessary to use a second syringe to get the desired outcome. Some plastic surgeons, dermatologists or other skin specialists who specialize in Juvederm may give you a discounted rate on a second syringe that is used.

Insurance companies generally do not pay for treatments and procedures that are deemed purely cosmetic. If you have questions about paying for Juvederm, first talk to your insurance company.

If your insurance company denies coverage for the Juvederm procedure and you can’t afford to pay in full for the procedure, talk to your doctor about other payment options. You may be able to arrange a monthly payment plan.
