Benefits and types of Juvéderm

Juvéderm dermal fillers are made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) that is designed to increase your natural supply of HA and collagen for supple, healthy skin. Schedule your consultation with us to talk about rejuvenating your complexion without the recovery time and expense of plastic surgery.

  • Juvéderm XC and Vollure smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and lines on the face, like parentheses lines and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The results usually last for about one year.
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC and Volbella add shape to the upper lip, lower lip, or both while correcting the appearance of fine, vertical lip lines. The results can usually be seen for up to one year.
  • Juvéderm Voluma augments the contour of the cheeks to treat age-related volume loss in the mid-face.

Ideal candidates for Juvéderm

The ideal candidates for Juvéderm injectable fillers are adults who have facial lines and wrinkles they wish to fix. Juvéderm dermal filler treatments can also help if you have naturally thin or age-related volume loss in your lips and/or cheeks. They are ideal if you would like to rejuvenate your appearance without the expense and downtime of facial plastic surgery.

Procedure technique during Juvéderm

Juvéderm injections typically only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being addressed. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be selected. To reduce discomfort during the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. After your treatment, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity, including exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.

What to expect following Juvéderm

Patients typically experience a noticeable improvement immediately after the Juvéderm procedure, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers are usually visible for up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after multiple years of treatments. Talk to our medical aesthetician about when to book a touch-up or full session at Starkman Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery.

Lip augmentation with Juvéderm

For patients seeking lip injections, Juvéderm is one of the best products on the market. Dr. Starkman employs a conservative approach when using lip fillers. The purpose is to make the lips blend in with the rest of your face, while still enhancing their appearance. During your private consultation, you and Dr. Starkman will thoroughly discuss your particular desires, and he will advise you regarding the best approach to your lip injections. During treatment with lip fillers, it is imperative that the two of you are in complete agreement regarding the outcome. Once that agreement is reached, the two of you can proceed with treatment.

Before & After

FAQ

How much does Juvéderm cost?

Your cost for Juvéderm will vary based upon how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your Juvéderm injections, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your goals and budget. After this, we can discuss cost estimates and payment options.

Are Juvéderm injections painful?

Although most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about pain. Following the treatment, you may feel some slight swelling and bruising that will usually be gone in 5 – 7 days, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your treatment.

What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and a relaxer?

Both fillers and relaxers improve wrinkles throughout the face but with different approaches. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, correct dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that corrects static wrinkles by increasing volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.

What results can I expect?

It may take 1 – 3 days to see the full results of your treatment. Generally, it only takes one session to achieve your goals. However, you can schedule a second appointment if you would like to add more volume or see more improvement.

How long do results typically last?

The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last from 1 – 2 years. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The duration of your results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the product.
