What is Juvederm made of?
Juvéderm is a cosmetic dermal filler composed from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), manufactured using proprietary HYLACROSS™ technology. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin.
How is Juvederm different than other hyaluronic acid-based products?
Unlike rooster-derived hyaluronic acids and bovine collagen products, Juvéderm is free from animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmissions or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.
What should patients do prior to treatment?
Juvéderm requires no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, St. John’s wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another recurrence.
Is Juvederm safe?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the human body. Juvéderm is fully biocompatible. There is limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins. No allergy testing is required before use.

How is Juvederm different from Botox®?
Juvéderm is a natural, cosmetic filler. In contrast, Botox is a drug that blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the underlying muscles. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving treatment with both products.
Do the injections hurt?
Juvéderm is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultra fine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient, and results are practically instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, your physician may anesthetize the treatment area.
