What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in all mammals that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. It has been used for more than twenty years for injections into joints to aid in movement as well as other surgeries.
What to expect during treatment?
Injections are performed by Dr. Harris after an initial consultation. Most patients need one treatment to obtain optimal results, although we recommend a two-week follow up for any additional fine tuning. Juvederm is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle. The area may be numbed slightly before treatment and discomfort is minimal. The injection process takes only fifteen minutes. Results are temporary but may last up to one year.
