An Overview

An alternative to collagen dermal fillers, Juvederm™ uses cross-linked strands of hyaluronic acid to create an easily injectable gel, which has been proven to improve the skin's fullness, texture, and elasticity.

Juvederm™ is similar to Restylane in its use of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that is vital to maintaining healthy volume and vibrancy in the skin. Like collagen, this compound begins to diminish as you age, bringing on the onset of fine lines and wrinkles such as those that cause dark under eye circles. To combat this, Juvederm™ injections provide the body with a refill of hyaluronic acid in the form of a smooth gel. This long-lasting gel flows easily into the skin, working in harmony with the body's system and binding natural elastin with existing and newly formed collagen molecules. The result is firmer, smoother skin and a rejuvenated look that can last as long as six months.

Since earning FDA approval in 2006, Juvederm™ has risen up the ranks of commercial facial rejuvenation products, both for its success in wrinkle removal and lip augmentation. In terms of wrinkle treatment, Juvederm™ has proven particularly effective in eliminating nasolabial folds (also known as "smile lines"), and as a lip filler, Juvederm™ treatments offer patients the opportunity for results comparable to invasive surgery, without the risk factors or long recovery time.

Juvederm™ has been proven safe and effective with patients of all skin types, and it's also environmentally safe, biodegradable and devoid of any animal ingredients.

Like all injectable fillers, repeated treatments are required to ensure the best results with Juvederm™. For potentially longer lasting treatments, however, there are two sister products available—Juvederm™ Ultra and Juvederm™ Ultra Plus, which can last up to a full year.

Juvederm Reviews:

Perfect Juvederm with Dr. Ourian

Posted by DEIDRE M. on .
Treatment was better than I expected. Dr. Ourian called it when he pronounced his work "Perfect". And I couldn't agree more! Signed, One Happy Customer.

Great Experience with Juvederm Application

Posted by DANIELLE T. on .
I did have a great experience! However, I did swell up a lot during the injection time which is typical for me so it's probably challenging for the doctor to see how much I really need per area. I will need to come back soon for the touch-up. In any case, the staff there are super friendly and accommodating! All of the staff were very hospitable and knowledgeable.

Twenty Years Younger in a Few Minutes

Posted by DEIDRE M. on .
Dr. Simon Ourian is quite simply a medical doctor and artist. Taking the best of both worlds to enhance my inner beauty! More than I expected. Beautiful fuller lips. Most of my fine lines are gone. Lips are more defined. From age 56 to 36 in just a few minutes!

Worth the Wait

Posted by KRISTEN G. on .
I waited a while after my scheduled time to see the doctor, but other than that, I liked it, overall. The PA's are excellent as is the doctor!

Going Back for Sure

New Favorite Place

Posted by JENNY P. on .
You guys worked within my budget and I was extremely happy that you guys worked with me and I got amazing results. When my mother and I came in with high expectations, you guys exceeded them by far. The staff and Dr. O. were very professional and knowledgeable of the product they were going to use. They took the time to answer all of our 20 questions and treated my mother and I like queens. This is our new favorite place for all our cosmetic needs.

Juvederm Turned Out Wonderfully!

Posted by AMANDA V. on .
Sarah was very sweet and did a fantastic job on my lips. It was my first time experiencing injections and I was highly satisfied.

My Skin Looks Worse After Treatment Than Before

Posted by JAN U. on .
I had the procedure and my face looked worse then it did before. They said that it would take another procedure to fix the problem. So I did it and it was also even worse. I would never go back and I would not recommend them to anyone. I am still paying off my $1200 & living with the error on my face. I do not mind paying for something that works - but I am p****d off that I have had to pay for nothing for 1 year. I would greatly like them to reimburse me just some of the money, but I would never go back to them.
