When you look in the mirror, does your face look like it could use a lift? Juvederm is a safe, effective, non-invasive way to add volume to the cheeks and lips. Also used to soften lines and wrinkles, Juvederm is a subtle solution to smoothing problem areas around the nose, and mouth, while rejuvenating the skin. If you have questions about Juvederm, we hope to answer them below. If you'd like to learn more about this popular dermal filler, visit your dermatologist, Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, M.D. here at Coastal Dermatology and MedSpa in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, today.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the United States. At our offices in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, we offer four different types of Juvederm that focus on different areas of the face and delivers softness while helping the skin retain moisture. The type of Juvederm product that is best for you is contingent upon consultation to address your concerns. Juvederm can correct a variety of age-related issues from mild to severe.

How Does Juvederm Work?

Juvederm adds volume to facial tissue using its active ingredient—hyaluronic acid—a substance that is naturally present in your body. As you age, this hyaluronic acid decreases along with collagen. Juvederm works by using minimally invasive injections to create more collagen. During the procedure, your dermatologist in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, M.D., will mark the treated areas before making the injection. Depending on where you receive Juvederm and how many doses you require, the procedure can last anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.

How Can Juvederm Help Me?

Sometimes we desire a little cosmetic enhancement to boost our self-esteem. If you are over the age of 21, Juvederm is a long-lasting option to restore facial contours, and fight against the signs of aging. Cheeks can sometimes flatten, and Juvederm is capable of plumping them up along with deep facial wrinkles and creases. It can also be applied to safely augment the lips. Results are immediate and last up to six months or more. Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, M.D., offers a few different types of Juvederm, and he can help decide which option is best for you during your initial consultation.
