Pre-testing is not necessary because JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel is biocompatible and of non-animal origin.
JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel may be good option for individuals who are looking to improve facial wrinkles or imperfections or enhance the appearance of the lips.

Dr. Massey & Dr. Rahimi perform the JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel injection in his office. Discomfort is typically minimal, though the patient’s comfort can be optimized by using a topical anesthetic.

Depending on the size and number of treatment areas, the procedure may take anywhere from five to thirty minutes to complete. This simple, convenient procedure produces immediate results.
There are few side effects associated with JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel, though some temporary redness and swelling may occur at the injection site. These are typically minor and tend to fade within a few days. Patients are able to immediately return to work and other normal activities right after treatment. Studies have shown that the results of JUVEDERM® Injectable Gel may last six months or longer.
