Over time, your face changes in many ways. This may be due to environmental factors, genetics, or part of the normal aging process.
Some of the changes you may see include volume loss in the cheek area, deepening lines around the nose and the mouth, and thinning of lips and may simply desire more fullness.
Non-surgical, injectable treatments designed to add volume, create contouring, minimize fine lines, wrinkles and folds.
The active ingredient in Juvederm, hyaluronic acid, adds volume to the facial tissue. The natural substance hyaluronic acid is found in the human body. It promotes the growth of connective tissue, which plump the skin (collagen). Hyaluronic acid and collagen production declines with age. This causes the skin on the face to sag and wrinkle.
The areas to be treated are typically marked with a pen by your doctor, physician assistant, or nurse during the procedure. Juvederm is then injected into the desired area by your doctor. They’ll also give the area a light massage to ensure even distribution and reduce the risk of swelling. Depending on the area being treated, the procedure can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.
A small amount of pain-relieving lidocaine is included in Juvederm injections. This will help to alleviate any pain or discomfort you may experience during treatment.
Juvéderm fillers can last from six months to two years. Their longevity depends on which type you get, how much your doctor uses, and how quickly your body metabolizes it. As a general rule, filler endures longest in areas with thinner skin and not much movement.
Your appointment will start with you and your injector discussing your goals, your facial anatomy, and the best type of filler to safely get the look you’re after. They should also go over the potential risks.
Once you’re on the same page, your skin will be cleansed with alcohol or an antiseptic. Your provider will then slowly inject the filler into your facial tissue, gently massaging the treatment area with their fingertips to distribute it. You’ll likely get several injections in one area, for even distribution.
Most Juvéderm filler formulas contain pain-reducing lidocaine, to instantly numb the area. Your treatment shouldn’t hurt too much, but you might feel some mild discomfort, particularly if you’re getting lip fillers (lips are very sensitive).
If pain is a top concern for you, ask for numbing cream in advance. Ice and cold packs also help numb the area as well as constrict blood vessels, to reduce the risk of bruising at the injection site.
Discuss the injection method with your doctor beforehand, too.
You won’t need downtime, but the injection site will likely be tender, with mild bruising and swelling, for a week or two after your treatment. Applying ice or a cold compress intermittently after injections can help ease the swelling.
Juvéderm lip filler is most prone to cause swelling, because lips have such a good blood supply, but it can happen anywhere the filler is injected.
It’s normal for lumps and bumps to occur after filler, particularly when it’s placed in sensitive areas, like the lips. They can form during injection (the doctor will smooth them out), but they often become more noticeable after some of the swelling goes down. They usually resolve on their own, but you can help the process along by massaging the area.
You’ll see more fullness and smoother skin immediately. With most injectables, what you see is what you get. There’s some minor swelling and bruising, but for the most part, you should see results the same day. It might take up to two weeks for the swelling to go down so you can see your final results.
Given that hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, serious risks are rare and typically the result of improper injection technique. The most significant cause for concern is unintentional injection into a blood vessel—which can lead to serious complications, including tissue death, permanent scarring, vision loss, or stroke.
Because of these risks, it’s essential to find an experienced injector who’s very knowledgeable about facial anatomy, such as a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon.
Juvéderm is also one of the most common nonsurgical cosmetic treatments performed in the United States, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find an experienced injector in your area. Just be sure to read reviews from their patients and scope our their before and after photos before booking the appointment.
The price you pay for Juvéderm fillers will depend on the type of filler, how many syringes you get, the experience level of your injector, and their practice location.
