Juvederm: The next generation in wrinkle removers
Juvederm is a long-lasting facial filler gel that adds volume and lifts the areas being treated. It is made of hyaluronic acid which is comparable to natural substances in the body and so presents no risk of allergic reaction. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm supports the body’s natural production of the substance and supports plumpness in the lips and volume in the skin. Juvederm can also be used to fill in areas of a particular wrinkle or crease.
One of the primary benefits of Juvederm is that it is obtained by biosynthesis of non-animal origin, making the molecule highly biocompatible. For this reason, it does not require allergy testing prior to treatment.
Juvederm can restore the plumpness and sensuality of your lips in a way that looks natural. It can also smooth the curves of your face without creating harsh lines or angles. This can all be achieved with a minor injection with an ultra-fine needle. Minor perfections and signs of aging are evenly softened, for a refreshed but natural look.
Juvederm is an excellent choice of treatment for:
- Lip enhancement & augmentation
- Facial lines
- Smile lines around the eyes mouth and forehead
- Deep folds
- Wrinkle correction
- Shaping facial contours, including the chin and cheek, with a non-surgical facelift
Juvederm results usually last from six to nine months, depending on the type of skin you have, the amount of Juvederm injected, the area treated and the technique used during the procedure.
Outcomes can be optimized to last longer with a follow-up procedure a few weeks after your initial treatment. Ask Dr. Simoni if this is a good option for your during your primary consultation.

Juvederm Recovery & Aftercare
For the first 24 hours following the procedure, you should avoid intense exercise, consuming alcoholic beverages and excessive sun or heat exposure to minimize the risk of itching, swelling or redness. It is not uncommon to have temporary injection-related reactions such as redness, firmness, swelling, bumps and pain. According to studies, these reactions are mild to moderate and resolve on their own in 7 days or less. To speed recovery, you may apply an ice pack to the injection site for a short time.
You should see an instant improvement in the areas you have selected to enhance with Juvederm. Most patients need just one treatment to achieve smoother skin and wrinkle reduction. However, outcomes vary from patient to patient. The results can last 6 months or more, and supplemental treatments are usually required to maintain optimal results.
