The natural effects of age cause our skin to lose its elasticity, structure, and fullness, which can lead to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. At Las Vegas Laser & Lipo, we offer treatments with Juvederm injectable dermal filler to patients who are looking for an instant correction to the visible signs of age. This injectable treatment can be used to instantly restore facial volume, fill in fine lines, and improve the appearance of facial wrinkles.

What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm is a non-surgical injectable treatment that can be used to restore a more youthful appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkle and restoring facial volume. This hyaluronic acid-based gel dermal filler is designed to provide immediate correction to the visible effects of age by smoothing facial folds, fine lines, and wrinkles and restoring volume to the facial tissues. Juvederm can also be used to add subtle, natural-looking enhancement to the lips.
How does Juvederm® work?
Juvederm works by replacing your natural hyaluronic acid that breaks down as you age. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm helps replace what has been lost during the natural aging process to improve facial volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds.
Benefits of Juvederm®

What can I expect from an injection session?
Most Juvederm injection sessions can be completed within 20 to 30 minutes depending on the area being treated. At your request, we can apply a topical numbing cream to the designated treatment area prior to the injection process to reduce any discomfort you may experience during the treatment. This treatment is minimally-invasive and has little to no downtime associated with it; most of our patients return to their normal activities immediately following their injection session.
What results can I expect?
Most patients see an immediate improvement in the treated area following their injection session, with the final results of treatment developing over the next week. You may require multiple injection sessions in order to achieve your treatment goals. Results of Juvederm can last for 9 to 12 months. Individual results may vary.
What are the potential side effects?
You might experience mild injection-related side effects, including some swelling, bruising, redness, tenderness, or discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are temporary and usually resolve on their own within one week of your injection session.
Am I a candidate?
Men and women who are in good health and are interested in restoring a more youthful appearance are potential candidates for treatment with Juvederm. Prior to your injection session, a member of our medical team will discuss your treatment goals with you and review your medical history and overall health to determine if Juvederm is the right treatment for you.
