returning to normal activities immediately. All other safety information that may apply to you will be
discussed during your consultation.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?
With optimal treatment, your smoother, younger-looking skin can last for several months up to one
year. Results may vary, and it may take multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve your aesthetic
goals based on your individual skincare needs.
JUVÉDERM® FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Juvederm?
Juvéderm is a next-generation smooth consistency gel dermal filler that helps to instantly
restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm is a
hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body. Juvéderm comes in two formulations
Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Ultra Plus.
What does Juvederm do?
Juvéderm temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to
the face. It will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds as well as plump
the lips and decrease those smokers lines that you can get even without smoking. Juvederm
can be used to “fill in” wrinkles, furrows and depressions around the nose and mouth,
including the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and smile lines. It can also be used to reshape
the nose, reduce eye bags, and fill the cheeks, making you look younger and refreshed
instantly. We even use it in the hands to restore lost volume and rejuvenate the hands.
What makes Juvederm different than other dermal fillers?
Juvéderm employs its unique manufacturing process to provide the highest concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid of any currently available hyaluronic acid dermal filler for long-lasting results. This advanced manufacturing process works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are made of granular consistency gels. And, Juvéderm is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.
How does Juvederm differ from Botox?
Juvéderm is a next generation hyaluronic acid dermal filler that provides volume and is used
to treat wrinkles and folds resulting from a loss of volume beneath the surface of the skin such
as perioral lines and nasolabial folds (lines around your mouth and nose). Juvéderm restores
your skin’s volume for a smooth, natural look and feel. BOTOX Cosmetic is not a filler, it relaxes
muscle activity in order to treat moderate to severe wrinkles.
Is treatment with Juvederm painful?
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. The smooth consistency
gel of Juvéderm allows your practitioner to administer it easily and smoothly. And,
Juvéderm is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort.
Ice and topical numbing cream are used on the treatment area to further minimize discomfort.
How long do results last?
The unique formulation of Juvéderm provides results that last 6-12 months.
What are the possible side effects?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting. The most common
side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injections site reactions such as: redness,
pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching and discoloration. As with all skin
injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
