What is JUVEDERM Lip Injections made of?
JUVÉDERM consists of hyaluronic acid. This acid is a compound that is found naturally in the body. Unlike other dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM is composed of non-animal hyaluronic acid. This means it is made in a lab, ensuring those patients with allergies are safe from any problems that would occur otherwise.

"In 1998 I started my dental trust with Dr. Kodish. His confidence, his kindness, and his results speak more than any words I can write here. Dr. Perez gave me excellent service on my recent visit. I am confident he will continue the excellent dental practice that I have had for years."- J.C. / Google / Aug 25, 2020

"If I could give more stars to Dr Kodish I would. My story starts with being in pain for 16 months, countless appointments with every dental specialist you can think of, a root canal (which the Endodontist now says was unnecessary), medications that none of them worked and I thought I was losing my mind and frustrated. Then after a teeth cleaning with my past dentist, he noticed me rubbing my face and randomly mentioned “that’s your Masseter”. I researched what that was and discovered that I checked all the boxes for TMD and there began my search for a TMJ/TMD specialist and found Dr Kodish, made an appointment and 6 weeks later I am pain free. Dr Kodish is very kind, compassionate and professional. He was very patient listening to my long journey to find relief for my pain and did a full evaluation to identify my issues and it turned out I had many and not one dental professional identified any of them. Dr Kodish is brilliant and I highly recommend KP Dental. They are a full service dental practice and I will not go anywhere else."- N.R. / Google / Mar 11, 2021
How long until I see results?
Commonly, changes in the skin should be apparent almost immediately after the JUVÉDERM injections. Due to swelling and redness from the injections, the appearance may take a few days to stabilize. Once the swelling has decreased, and your overall goal has been achieved, the JUVÉDERM injection benefits should last for about six months.
How Long Is recovery after treatment?
You typically see a noticeable enhancement immediately after your JUVÉDERM treatment, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for around 7 – 10 days. The results of JUVÉDERM treatments typically can be seen for up to a year; several patients find that their improvements last longer after a few years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Perez about when to book a touch-up or full injection session at Fort Lauderdale Dental Studio to maintain your results.
How much does JUVÉDERM cost?
Your cost for JUVÉDERM will vary dependent on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your injection treatment, a personalized injection plan will be made to fit your aesthetic goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are JUVÉDERM injections painful?
While most patients don't find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you are worried about any discomfort. After the injection, you might feel mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should subside within a week, depending on the treatment area. Please contact Fort Lauderdale Dental Studio if you experience any lasting discomfort or signs of infection following your injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and a relaxer?
Injectable fillers and relaxers correct wrinkles, but with different approaches. Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, treat dynamic wrinkles created by frequent muscle contractions. JUVÉDERM is an injectable wrinkle filler that corrects static wrinkles by increasing volume. JUVÉDERM is ideal for treating mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or adding volume to your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait 1 – 3 days to see the full improvements from your treatment. Generally, it takes only one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule another appointment if you want to intensify your results.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a JUVÉDERM treatment may last from 1 – 2 years. These can vary depending on which formula is selected and where it was injected. The length of your results will depend on how fast your body absorbs the product.
