What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. There are several products in the Juvederm family. They all are used to help address the facial aging. Each product in the Juvederm line features different bonding and concentrations of hyaluronic acid. The different products are each tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency.

Preparing for Juvederm


Before a Juvederm treatment, let us know your cosmetic goals and expectations. Juvederm procedures are minimally invasive so they’re frequently done on the same day as the consultation.

Simple instructions to follow before your consultation and treatment generally involve avoiding medication like aspirin, ibuprofen. And you’ll want to avoid excess alcohol in the days leading up to treatment. Smoking is also discouraged before treatment.

Avoiding these things can help prevent bruising. Also let us know of any allergies or sensitivities.


How does Juvederm work?

Juvederm works by adding volume to the facial tissue through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body.

It stimulates the production of the connective tissue that plumps the skin (collagen). As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. This increases the appearance of sagging and wrinkling of the facial skin.


During the procedure, we will mark the areas to be treated. The product is then injected into the target area. Light massage ensures an even distribution and reduce the chance of swelling. The entire procedure usually takes between 30-40 minutes, depending on the area treated.



How long do Juvederm® fillers last?

Longevity depends on the type of filler product selected, the area treated, and the individual patient. Juvederm fillers can last from nine months to two years. It’s important for patients to discuss all of their aesthetic goals with us during their initial consultation.

Will it look obvious that I have had Juvederm® injections? When will I see results?

Results Juvederm injections are immediate, and yours can be as subtle or dramatic as you choose based on the volume of product used. We perform lots of injections monthly, so we customize our approach to meet your goals.

One consideration to note is that while bruising is usually minimal, it is always a potential risk; therefore, it is not wise to get treated immediately before a big event. Our office uses a cannula technique which significant reduces bruising potential.

What are the side effects and risks associated with Juvederm®? Is Juvederm® safe?

The risks associated with Juvederm® injections are low and it is considered safe. The most common side effect is bruising which will generally resolve after a few days. Discomfort is minimal during the procedure and numbing agents can be used.

What is the best filler for wrinkles?

For “marionette lines,” Juvederm Ultra Plus or Restylane or RHA work well. These fillers give lasting results and support. These products can give a natural result by blending the filler throughout these areas.

Lip lines can be filled with a thinner filler like Juvederm depending on how plump you want your lips. These fillers give not only a fill but a shape to the lips. It is our goal to deliver natural results so we will discuss all the filler options at your visit.
