Juvederm is a smooth consistency, gel-based dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. With just a few injections, patients will see immediate improvement in facial volume, creases, fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm can last up to one year from initial treatment, and is the preferred dermal filler for lip augmentation and enhancement. It is a safe treatment for patients seeking effective wrinkle treatment and facial rejuvenation.
At Scottsdale Skin Institute we take pride in delivering among the best Juvederm Scottsdale has to offer and look forward to helping you achieve your cosmetic goals.
The “Liquid Facelift”
Often dubbed the “liquid facelift,” Juvederm can provide many benefits of a surgical facelift but at a fraction of the cost and with virtually no downtime. With careful and strategic placement of the Juvederm gel, facial areas can be “lifted” with volume restored, creating an elevated and more youthful appearance. This is a perfect treatment for those patients not quite ready for invasive treatment, yet are seeking a more dramatic change in their appearance. Additionally, when used to “preview” a surgical facelift, this procedure can help uncertain patients decide if they wish to undergo facial plastic surgery.
Juvederm is composed of a substance called hyaluronic acid—a basic element occurring naturally in our connective skin tissue. Hyaluronic acid has the unique ability to draw moisture to the surface of the skin, plumping and adding volume to areas where there has been a loss of volume or elasticity due to the natural aging process. Unlike BOTOX, which relaxes the muscles below the skin, Juvederm actually fills in the lines and wrinkles, creating a smoother, lifted appearance.
As an added benefit, hyaluronic acid fillers produce little to no side effects due to their natural compatibility with the human body, thus making them a popular option among most plastic surgeons today. With many of our patients glowing after their treatment, the Scottsdale Skin Institute delivers among the best Juvederm Scottsdale has available.

Risks and Recovery
There are virtually no risks involved with Juvederm. Because it is a non-invasive treatment, it is relatively painless with virtually no down time. The results last anywhere from 4- 6 months depending on the patient and the area treated.
Some patients may experience temporary swelling and bruising at the injection site but this usually subsides within 48 hours, resulting in a beautiful natural looking appearance.
