Juvéderm is a family of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to restore volume and to rejuvenate your skin. Juvéderm can plump your lips, smooth fine lines to severe wrinkles, and can add definition to your facial structure. With Juvéderm, vitality, strength, and volume can be restored to your skin, with long-lasting results.
How does Juvéderm work?
Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-attracting sugar molecule that naturally occurs throughout your body to lubricate joints and to keep your skin supple. As we age, our production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin slow. These are all compounds that we associate with healthy, strong, and youthful-looking skin. A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, Juvéderm replenishes your skin with moisture and volume. Juvéderm comes in various formulas, each designed to integrate smoothly into your skin. By offering a range of gel densities, every aspect of your face has a filler that has been tailored for those areas, skin depths, and skin concerns.
Are there any pre-treatment instructions that I will need to follow?
Yes, to ensure that you get the most out of your treatment with minimal risk, there are some important instructions to follow. Some of these instructions will include avoiding blood-thinning medications or supplements a few days to a week before treatment.

What should I expect during the treatment?
At the beginning of your treatment, you may have a topical anesthetic or numbing agent applied for greater comfort. Juvéderm contains a small percentage of lidocaine for your comfort, during, and directly after your treatment. The treatment can take between 15 minutes to an hour depending on how many areas you are having treated. You will be able to see your results directly after treatment although there may be some redness, swelling, or bruising around the injection sites.
Are there any post-treatment instructions?
There will be some post-treatment instructions that you should follow to ensure that you get the most out of your injections. These instructions may include:
- Avoid aspirin or other blood-thinning medications and supplements for at least one week after treatment
- Avoid massaging the treatment areas
- Avoid strenuous exercise, direct sun, or excessive heat for at least three days after treatment
- Avoid alcohol, caffeine, smoking, high sodium foods, and high sugar food or refined carbohydrates as these will increase the likelihood of swelling and irritation
- Wait at least twenty-four hours after treatment to put on any makeup
How long do the results last?
Depending on the exact Juvéderm product used and the treatment area, you can expect your treatment to last up to nine months or as long as two years. Juvéderm Voluma XC, one of the denser fillers, typically used to restore volume to the cheeks, can last for up to two years.
