What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a line of dermal fillers that is unique for its use of hyaluronic acid. This ingredient is something that is naturally found in the body, meaning that results look incredibly natural and blend well with the skin. There is a Juvéderm® product for nearly every part of the face, so patients can achieve specialized treatment for any given area. In addition to providing instant results in most cases, Juvéderm® products also offer some of the longest-lasting results of any dermal fillers - up to two years for some products. Juvéderm® has the ability to plump, smooth, and lift the facial skin.

What is Juvéderm® Ultra Plus?

How is Juvéderm® Administered?

Each injection is performed by Dr. Anh Vu, and is placed with the utmost precision and care. The injections are surprisingly comfortable, and most patients experience no pain whatsoever. If you are concerned about discomfort, we can apply a topical anesthetic before treatment. A Juvéderm® treatment is typically performed in about 30 minutes.
What Can I Expect After My Juvéderm® Treatment?

There may be some mild swelling or redness around the injection site, but this typically fades within a day or two.
