WHAT IS JUVEDERM?
Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler, also known as Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers, that is highly effective at restoring a more youthful appearance by smoothing out lines and wrinkles, restoring volume, and many other signs of aging.
There are many different products within the Juvederm family that are used to help people reduce the signs of aging.
Each of the Juvederm products offers a different bonding and concentration of hyaluronic acid. Each filler is tailored to specific problem areas and are injected at different depths. Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency and a smooth procedure with minimal downtime
HOW DOES JUVEDERM WORK?
HOW DOES JUVEDERM
Juvederm works by adding volume though an injection to select facial tissues through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. Your body already produces hyaluronic acid as it’s a natural substance found in the body that stimulates the production of the connective tissue known for plumping the skin (collagen). As we all get older, the natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid decreases. This reduction is also why the appearance of aging, sagging, and wrinkling of the facial skin happens.
During your procedure, our doctor or nurse will use a pen to mark the areas that will be treated. Our doctor or nurse will then inject Juvederm into the targeted area that has been marked. They will then lightly massage the area to ensure that it is evenly distributed, reducing the chance of swelling. The entire procedure usually lasts between 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment.

This type of filler is approved for injection in several areas, including the cheek area, chin, lips, forehead, perioral area, and under the eyes. Because there are different concentrations and formulations of hyaluronic acid fillers available, they are an excellent option for many patients. Your aesthetician can recommend a specific type of filler based on your individual beauty goals and concerns.

This is one of the most common questions we are asked, how long do fillers last? Every person is different. Typically these products can last anywhere from 6 months to just over a year. Your first treatment will determine your body’s ability to hold a filler as everyone’s individual metabolisms and lifestyles can speed up the breakdown of the product used. Best practice for use of fillers is to check-in at about halfway through the expected timeframe. At that visit, we determine just for you whether to add a little more or wait longer. Dermal Fillers are used in conjunction with a total skincare program. Holistic Functional Medicine with nutrition, hormone balancing, and lifestyle modifications can extend the life of your treatments.
There is usually no downtime, although some redness and swelling may occur, which generally subsides within a few hours.
Juvederm is a widely considered safe injectable filler. It received FDA approval in 2006, and no significant side effects have been reported from its use as a filler. One of the main reasons why our patients prefer Juvederm injections is because its formula is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is an all-natural substance already produced by the body. Compared to other dermal fillers, Juvederm injections have mild side effects that are usually rare, such as temporary itching or mild redness at the injection site.
The effects of Juvederm typically last between nine to twelve months, but this timeline may differ for each person. The duration of the results is influenced by how quickly your body breaks down the filler as part of a natural process. To maintain their beautiful skin and optimize the outcomes, many of our patients choose to schedule refresher appointments once or twice a year.
To ensure the best possible results following Juvederm injections, it is advisable to:
-Avoid touching or massaging the treated area unnecessarily for several days
-Refrain from strenuous exercise and exposure to extreme heat or cold during the first 24 hours after treatment
-Limit exposure to the sun unnecessarily for up to two weeks
-Refrain from using any products containing alcohol on your lips and face.
