What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a family of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that address the patients’ specific aesthetic needs, whether that’s enhancing the lips, adding volume to the cheeks, filling out wrinkles, or making the skin appear soft and supple. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring and biodegradable gel that adds to your skin’s elasticity, making it look fresh, taut, and voluminous. Juvederm fillers supplement your skin’s existing hyaluronic acid content to reverse some of the signs of aging, such as skin laxity, hollows under the eyes, hollow cheeks, wrinkles, etc. Juvederm dermal fillers have a smooth consistency, and they include the local anesthetic lidocaine, which ensures a comfortable and painless experience.

What happens during the Juvederm procedure? 

During your consultation, we will examine your skin type and discuss your aesthetic goals. Based on the consultation, your cosmetic professional will mark the targeted areas with a pen. It’s crucial to find a registered nurse or master esthetician who carefully and strategically identifies the treatment spots to ensure optimal aesthetic results. Finally, the chosen Juvederm product is injected into the targeted regions, and then massaged to ensure perfect distribution. There’s no need for local anesthesia because Juvederm products include lidocaine, a powerful anesthetic component.

What is recovery from Juvederm like?

Juvederm treatments usually take between 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on the number of injections necessary. After the injections, you’ll experience some swelling, tenderness, redness, and itching around the treated regions. However, these side effects will gradually recede within two weeks. 

There’s no downtime, and you can resume most of your daily activities immediately. You will be asked to avoid sun exposure and makeup for at least 24 hours after the treatment. You’ll notice the treatment results immediately, but the results will continue improving over several weeks. The overall results will last between 6 months to 24 months, depending on the Juvederm product.

Like any medical treatment, Juvederm injections have risks and potential side effects. However, the risks are low, and injectables are generally considered a safe treatment. Under the care of a highly experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Rousso or Dr. Adams, the likelihood of experiencing complications with Juvederm is considerably low. 

The usual side effects of Juvederm injections are redness, minor swelling or bruising, tenderness, itching, or lumpiness. These usually fade within a couple of days, in some cases, a week.

What does Juvederm cost? 

Since dermal fillers are considered an elective procedure, your health insurance will not cover the cost.

The cost of your Juvederm treatment varies based on a number of factors. The area or areas being injected, the amount of Juvederm that is needed, and your unique needs and aesthetic goals are all considered into the final cost. You will start with a consultation so that we can examine your skin, discuss your concerns and determine the best course of treatment for your rejuvenation with Juvederm. Once we have determined this, we will be able to give you the exact price of your Juvederm treatment.
