Designed to help patients minimize common signs of aging, JUVÉDERM® products from our clinics can non-surgically and virtually instantaneously “turn back the clock.” This innovative dermal filler uses a special smooth, gel-like formula comprised of hyaluronic acid to restore volume to the skin and plump away wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid (HA) naturally occurs in our bodies, which means this filler is considered to be hypoallergenic. JUVÉDERM® is FDA-approved to soften fine lines and wrinkles and boost volume in a variety of areas on the face, including around the eyes, around the mouth, and in the lips. Discover what this facial filler can do for you by scheduling a consultation with our physician, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim.

Good morning Shehla, I have been wanting to write to thank you so much for including me as a patient in your training session.
The lift you and the trainees did along my jawline is perfect! I am thrilled with the results. And my lips are so natural, no one has noticed but everyone says I look so good. Could not have had a better result.
The experience of three women working on me made me feel very looked after and pampered.
Thank you so much, I am grateful.

What Is the JUVÉDERM® Treatment Like?
Most patients find the experience to be quick and relatively comfortable. The dermal filler will be injected into a series of locations in the desired region. This can be completed in as little as 30 minutes, and many individuals schedule the procedure during their lunch hour.
Does It Hurt?
We take great care to make your experience as comfortable as possible. JUVÉDERM® includes a topical anaesthetic in the formula, and we can use cold compresses to help manage any pain. The treatment is quite quick, and most patients report little discomfort.
How Long Is Recovery Following JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
You can return to your normal schedule immediately after the treatment. Some minor swelling, redness, and bruising in the treated area is normal, and these symptoms should fade within a few days. We can suggest additional methods to reduce these effects, if desired.
When Can I See Results, and How Long Do They Last?
One of the many benefits of this treatment is the rapid result. You should be able to see evidence of the filler virtually instantly, and the benefits typically continue for eight months to a year. Occasional retreatment can extend the effects.
