Juvéderm® is a family of injectable treatments called dermal fillers. Juvéderm® injectables are made with hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found in the human body. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping your skin supple and holding moisture. When injected into the skin, it attracts water and expands, creating youthful volume.
Dermal filler treatment is incredibly popular because it can create natural-looking, long-lasting results. There are many different forms of Juvéderm® available, and your dermatologist can determine the right one for you and your goals. Each one is made with a different formulation of hyaluronic acid, with options for a softer or more viscous gel depending on the area and type of facial wrinkles being treated. Thick fillers are best for patients who want to restore volume in the mid-face or build structure along the jawline or cheekbones. Thin, soft fillers can safely smooth facial lines around the mouth or eyes.

Juvéderm® is similar to Restylane®, another family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Juvéderm® treatments can also be combined with other injectables like BOTOX® or skincare treatments like chemical peels for best results. Botox temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles to smooth fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. Combing Botox injections with dermal fillers is a great way to target all types of wrinkles. During your consultation with our cosmetic team, you can determine which option is best for you.
Juvéderm® injections are very quick and easy – and they produce instant results. Juvéderm® formulations include lidocaine, a numbing agent that helps ease discomfort during the injection process. Most patients can tolerate the process without a topical anesthetic. Once your treatment area has been cleansed, the product is placed under the skin with a very fine needle. Your injector will make sure your results have a natural look to refresh your youthful appearance.

“I was so reluctant to ever try Botox but Ashley made it more than I ever expected. My migraines and my forehead wrinkles are improved and I may or may not look 5 years younger! Best bedside manners and such amazing staff! Great experience!"

There’s no downtime required after Juvéderm® treatments, although it’s normal to have some minor redness and irritation at the injection sites for a few hours afterward. If you have discomfort (after lip augmentation, for example) you can ease it with an ice pack. Most normal activities can be immediately resumed but it’s best to avoid exercise or hot environments for the first 24 hours. It can be helpful to massage the area to help the product meld with the skin, as well.
It’s normal for your results to look “over-filled” at first as the area swells. Make sure to allow at least two weeks for your final results to settle in before opting for more products. Depending on your unique Juvéderm® treatment, you can expect your results to last between six months to one year.
Juvéderm® can help add volume and enhance your favorite features with a quick and easy treatment session. To learn more, contact Sunrise Dermatology by calling or filling out our online contact form.
