How Juvederm Works

Fact

Hyaluronic Acid is ideal as a dermal filler because it is found naturally within the body, and in most living things. HA can also be used for wound repair or to ease inflammation of arthritic joints.

Your consultation: During your consultation, it's important to be honest and upfront about your medical history, cosmetic expectations and recovery goals. Your consultation will begin with a physical exam, followed by a discussion of Juvederm. You will also have the opportunity to view Dr. Erhardt's gallery of before and after patient photos.

Procedure: Prior to treatment, your face will be cleansed with an antiseptic. If you are particularly uncomfortable with injection pain, a numbing agent may be applied to the treatment areas. Using a fine needle, Dr. Erhardt will carefully inject Juvederm beneath your skin at pre-discussed treatment sites.

Healing time: Immediately following treatment, your skin may feel fuller than normal. You may also experience some temporary swelling or redness. There is no downtime required following treatment, but Dr. Erhardt may recommend that you abstain from alcoholic beverages or strenuous exercise during the evening following your procedure.

Expected Results: Once injected, Juvederm works by replacing the depleted supplies of hyaluronic acid beneath your skin. Only one treatment is needed for noticeable improvements. Juvederm will eventually be metabolized by your body, but the results of treatment can last for six months or longer. Repeat treatments will maintain your results long-term.
