Juvéderm® is a popular filler injected into the face to help skin appear younger and more supple.

Benefits of Juvéderm
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that restores facial volume and minimizes signs of aging. People who choose Juvéderm are typically pleased with how natural it looks. This treatment gives the face a subtle, brighter look without dramatically changing the shape.
Another benefit of the treatment is that it is not permanent. If patients do not love their results, they can wait for the ingredients to wear off over a few months and for their face and skin to return to its original state. These injections also contain a small amount of lidocaine, which reduces any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

The Right Cosmetic Treatment Solution
There are various types of Juvéderm available, each of which targets a specific cosmetic concern. Juvéderm is a great option for people who want to plump lips, fill in cheeks, smooth deep wrinkles, and erase fine facial lines. These injections are not appropriate for pregnant women or people under the age of 18. Juvéderm candidates should not have an allergy to lidocaine or hyaluronic acid.
People with early signs of aging may benefit from this treatment. We recommended this treatment for patients with good health who are seeking to enhance their appearance subtly. People with severe scarring, sagging skin, or skin infections may not get the desired results.

The Treatment Process
Before the treatment process can begin, patients must have a consultation to discuss their goals for treatment. We will also review the patient's medical history during this initial consultation and determine whether Juvéderm is right for them. Once we approve them for treatment, we will create a treatment plan to produce optimal results. We recommend that patients stop taking medications like blood thinners and ibuprofen before receiving treatment to avoid bleeding and bruising.
During the appointment, we will mark the areas for treatment and begin injecting Juvéderm into the skin. The process typically takes about 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of treatment spots. Patients should avoid sun exposure, strenuous exercise, makeup, and alcohol for 24 hours after treatment. There may be some redness, swelling, itching, or minor discomfort, which will disappear after a few days.

Risks of Juvéderm at Home
Unfortunately, there have been reports of patients undergoing "discount" Juvéderm treatments out of private homes. Beware of these offers and understand that Juvéderm is not something to administer at a home party. These situations may lead to adverse reactions, poor results, infections, or worse.
The incorrect administration of fillers can cause blindness, tissue necrosis, and even death. There is also the risk of receiving fake fillers that contain unknown and potentially dangerous ingredients. Patients should only receive Juvéderm from licensed medical practitioners to ensure safety.

Q. How effective is professional teeth whitening treatment?
Recovery time after Juvéderm injections is minimal. Many people can see the results of their injections right away. Individual results may vary and can depend on the type of Juvéderm injection.
However, Juvéderm manufacturers claim that results can last between one to two years. One study found that patients who used the product for areas around their faces had an overall mean satisfaction rate of 65.6%. Patients usually return for their next treatment after six months to two years.

Frequently Asked Questions About Juvéderm
Q. How long does Juvéderm last?
A. Juvéderm results vary, depending on each individual's case and the condition of their skin. In some cases, the treatment lasts for up to two years. Patients who get touch-up treatments about every six months report better results.
Q. Does Juvéderm hurt?
A. Juvéderm contains a small amount of lidocaine, which helps numb the slight pain some patients feel during injections. Some patients may feel more pain depending on the injection site. The minor discomfort typically goes away quickly once the lidocaine from the injection takes effect.
Q. How much does Juvéderm cost?
A. The cost of Juvéderm varies by the number of syringes. Patients who get more syringes of the ingredient or multiple treatment sites may pay more. People interested in this treatment should contact their insurance provider for more information.
Q. Am I the right age to get Juvéderm?
A. Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, Juvéderm is popular with adults of all ages. Adding volume to the lips or cheeks is not necessarily something related to fighting aging skin. The manufacturer recommends that patients be at least 21 years old.
Q. What will Juvéderm feel like after injection?
A. After the initial injection, we will massage the filler into the skin briefly. Once the ingredient settles into the skin, it appears plumper and softer. Lips may feel more solid and fuller with a dermal filler.
Q. Is Juvéderm safe?
A. According to a study from the International Journal of Toxicology, hyaluronic acid, the active ingredient in Juvéderm, is a proven and safe method for dermal fillers. The study showed no adverse reactions in patients using injectable fillers with this ingredient. The study also found no links between hyaluronic acid and health problems.
