However, as with most patients considering cosmetic procedures, you likely have plenty of questions. Below, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Paul Fondacaro from Dr. Park Avenue in Hoboken, NJ, offers a few basic answers.  

Cosmetic Surgeon Answers Juvéderm FAQs

What Is Juvéderm?

cosmetic proceduresJuvéderm is a smooth, clear, hydraulic acid-based facial filler designed to replace volume loss caused by aging and sun damage. Strategically placed injections are used to restore facial fullness while combating lines and wrinkles. 

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Juvéderm injections take under a half hour to administer. You should plan for additional time to discuss your goals, medical history, and aftercare instructions with your cosmetic surgeon.

Is It Permanent?

Can I Wear Makeup Afterward?

Are There Any Side Effects?
