If you have begun to notice the signs of aging but are not ready for a facelift, facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers may be right for you. Dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical way to enhance your natural beauty with little to no downtime. Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm®, offer versatile solutions to patients looking to restore lost volume, smooth wrinkles, and enhance the contours of their face.

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is an FDA-approved dermal filler that replaces lost hyaluronic acid, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps patients achieve a refreshed and more youthful-looking appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound found in our bodies. This compound helps to keep our skin firm, plump, and hydrated.

However, as we get older, hyaluronic acid production begins to decrease, which is why fine lines and wrinkles become more visible. Because Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid-based filler, it can give your skin a more youthful appearance by binding to the water molecules in your skin.

As such, Juvéderm can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, restore lost volume under the eyes and in the cheeks, improve facial symmetry, and enhance lip shape and volume.

What Are The Benefits of Juvéderm?

Juvéderm offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Restoring lost volume
  • Plumping lips
  • Sculpting the jawline
  • Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and creases
  • Contours facial structures
  • Produces natural-looking results
  • It can be used in a variety of different treatment areas, such as the face and the hands.

What Are The Different Types of Juvéderm Fillers?

Juvéderm offers a collection of different fillers, all of which offer their own unique benefit.

Below are the different types of Juvéderm you can choose from:

  • Voluma®: Voluma is used to restore volume in the cheeks and chin.
  • Vollure®: Vollure restores volume to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Vobella®: Used to restore lost volume and plump thin lips. It can also be used to fill in the undereye hollows and reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
  • Volux®: Used to sculpt and define the jawline.

Ideal Candidates For Juvéderm Treatment

Ideal candidates for treatment should be over 21 years old, without active skin infections or bleeding disorders, and not pregnant or breastfeeding. Additionally, they should not have an allergy to gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine. They should also have realistic expectations of what Juvéderm can do to improve their aesthetic concerns.

What To Expect After Treatment

There is little to no downtime after receiving Juvéderm injections. While it is perfectly normal to experience temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site, they should fade within a few days. During this time, you can apply gentle, cold compresses to reduce any swelling. You should also avoid direct sun exposure, sauna treatments, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the type of filler you choose, your results can last between 12 months to two years. This will depend on how quickly metabolizes the product, how much was injected, and the injection technique.

Yes, when injected by an experienced medical professional, Juvéderm is an extremely safe cosmetic procedure. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, it is important to understand the risks and side effects, even if they are rare. That is why it is also important to discuss your medical history prior to having injections. 

Most patients tolerate treatment quite well. However, you may feel a slight pinch as the needle enters the treatment area. The experienced physicians at Daneshrad Clinic ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery use gentle yet expert touches to help minimize any discomfort. 

Juvéderm injections are an in-office procedure that usually takes between 15 to 60 to complete, depending on the number of treatment areas. Prior to injections, the treatment areas will be cleaned, and a topical numbing agent may be applied to minimize discomfort. Juvédermis is then injected using a fine needle just beneath the skin, and the area may be gently massaged to distribute the filler evenly.
