Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvéderm?

As men and women mature, their face loses fullness and their once taut, smooth skin loses firmness. This results in furrows, folds, wrinkles, and a sunken — sometimes skeletal — appearance that doesn’t accurately represent the still vibrant person within. Juvéderm collagen fillers revitalize one’s appearance by adding volume to the facial structure, allowing the skin to lie smoothly over full, youthful features.

Where can Juvéderm be used?

Juvéderm comes in several different formulations, each addressing a different problem area, and can be used for:

  • Juvéderm Vollure™ XC: Softens moderate to severe parentheses lines around the mouth and nose
  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC: Fills out sunken areas in the cheeks
  • Juvéderm Volbella® XC: Softens vertical lines and wrinkles around lips by subtly filling the lips

Is Juvéderm painful?

Because injections can cause slight discomfort, some formulations of Juvéderm — those followed by “XC” — contain a numbing agent. When other forms of Juvéderm are used, a topical anesthetic can be applied before the injections to alleviate discomfort. With these comfort measures, most patients describe Juvéderm as tolerable.

What can patients expect at their Juvéderm appointment?

A medical history and examination are conducted by the doctor or a member of his or team. The treatment takes 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of areas being treated.

How long does it take to see results?

Results are visible as soon as the filler is injected. Patients leave the office looking younger and rejuvenated.

How long do the results last?

Results from filler injections generally last 1-2 years. After that time, many choose to have the treatment done again to maintain the vibrant look they achieved with Juvéderm.

Who is a candidate?

Those with lost volume in the face, fine lines, and wrinkles around the mouth or nose are generally great candidates for Juvéderm cosmetic filler. Patients who are allergic to gel fillers, lidocaine, or any of the ingredients in Juvéderm should not get this procedure.

How can patients save money?

Juvéderm offers a rewards program called Brilliant Distinctions®. This program allows patients to earn points with each treatment and redeem them on future treatments.
