Young, healthy-looking skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of HA in your facial skin, causing it to lose structure and volume, and creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds. Other factors also contribute to the signs of facial aging including the resorption of bone and fat, and the gradual descent (sagging) of the soft tissue.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR JUVEDERM IN THE NORTHERN NEW JERSEY AREA?
Most people are good candidates for Juvéderm®. Exceptions are those with bad allergies or anyone with an allergy to lidocaine.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM JUVEDERM?
Juvéderm® in NYC can smooth unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours to several areas of the face, such as:
- The lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines).
- Vertical lines in the area just below the nose and above the upper lip, the corners of the mouth, and the area downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline (marionette lines).
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
You may experience pain, tenderness, temporary redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, and bumps at the injection sites. Studies have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in 7 days or less.
