All about Juvéderm at Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology
Juvéderm is the most popular hyaluronic acid filler. It works by lifting and filling indented folds and lines on the face.
I was a principal investigator for Juvéderm back in 2004 when it was first FDA approved. Juvéderm has the characteristic of being very soft and natural in its feel underneath the skin.
How is Juvéderm filler performed?
A patient getting Juvéderm will be numbed first, to not feel the initial needle or cannula prick. There is lidocaine in Juvéderm, which makes subsequent injections in that area virtually painless.
What are the areas Juvéderm can be used as a filler?
Juvéderm can be used in many areas around the face. The only location it's probably not good for is the tear trough area because it can cause swelling.
It is extremely good to give plump natural-looking lips, accentuate the cheeks, the jawline, and anywhere there is a facial fold or a line.
Juvederm is a Hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in our bodies. Its purpose is to lubricate joints and our eyes, and to keep the skin supple by binding to water molecules in skin cells. As we age, Hyaluronic acid is one of several substances that decreases. This decrease leads to drier skin, progressive loss of volume, and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Applying Hyaluronic acid in a smooth gel solution restores moisture and raises lines and folds for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Dermal filler treatment, in general, is designed to plump areas of depression, filling creases to rejuvenate facial contours in a non-surgical manner. Dr. Mary Lupo has been treating patients for many years with dermal fillers like Juvederm, and trains her peers on successful usage of this product. Her experience leads her to begin with a thorough assessment of each patient’s unique needs. She understands that not all dermal fillers are the same, nor is one filler right for every need. In our New Orleans dermatology practice, a combination of fillers may be used on a patient to achieve the most natural, beautiful outcome that lasts for months.
