What is Juvéderm?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. This innovative treatment is one of the latest that dermatological research has to offer. Juvederm products are a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) product that comes from sugar. It is actually natural to your body and even found in your body naturally.
One of the best things about this treatment is that it involves using natural ingredients, with impressive results. Not only do you see a vast improvement in wrinkles and fine lines throughout the face and neck, but you won’t experience the side effects that other fillers have often been known for. It is also safe for all types of skin.
How does Juvederm work?
Juvéderm is injected with a microfine needle into your skin to fill wrinkles or add volume in areas such as frown crease, wrinkles around the mouth, plump the lips among other. The serum fills in these areas, creating a smoother and more refreshed look. It is blended with a small amount of lidocaine to help make the procedure more comfortable.

What can I expect after treatment?
The great thing about Juvéderm injections is that this is a non-surgical treatment so you can go back to your normal every day activities right after the procedure. Many patients go back to work after the procedure, however you may have mild swelling and bruising for up to three days.
When will I see results?
You will see results immediately. The treated areas should look better right away and actually improve a lot more over 3 to 5 days. The product acts like a sponge and absorbs water. So the results gradually improve over a 5 day span. It is also recommended to not exercise the remainder of the day after a treatment.
How long do the results last?
The Juvéderm products last about 8 months to a year. Thicker Juvéderm Ultra Plus seems to last about a year and the cheek enhancing and tightening Voluma last about 18 months to 2 years.
After treatment you may experience some swelling and bruising which generally resolves in a couple of days. Proper use of ice and compression may help minimize bruising and swelling.
Sleep with a 30-degree angle and avoid sleeping on one side to avoid disturbing the placement of the filler. You may take Tylenol for pain but not aspirin or ibuprofen which may increase bruising. You may also want to avoid Vitamin E and fish oil to minimize complications.
Juvéderm common side effects
The most common side effects include:
- As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
