Juvéderm® is a type of dermal filler comprised predominantly of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. When Juvéderm® is injected into different parts of the face, it helps add volume. This means that wrinkles become less prominent and the injection site is given a much fuller and more youthful appearance in the process.
Juvéderm® has become increasingly popular at our Minneapolis, MN cosmetic surgery practice. We’d like to consider how Juvéderm® works and how the results of Juvéderm® compare to other cosmetic injectables. This will help you understand your many options for cosmetic enhancement.
Issues Juvéderm® Can Treat
Juvéderm® is ideal for treating the following lines, wrinkles, and cosmetic flaws:
- Laugh lines
- Smile lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Forehead creases
- Worry lines
- Acne scars
Juvéderm® may also be used to help increase the plumpness, fullness, and overall appearance of the lips. The entire Juvéderm® treatment process can be completed in roughly 30 minutes.
Recovery After Juvéderm® Injections
After undergoing Juvéderm®, patients will experience no major downtime. Patients can return to work without issues. Patients can wear normal makeup on their face after treatment just fine. Some mild swelling, tenderness, redness, and discomfort around the injection site are normal and will fade in the days after treatment.
That said, patients should avoid touching the injection site for a few days so that the filler is able to work its magic without interruption. Patients should also avoid sun exposure and extreme hot or cold temperatures for two weeks. This is also done to prevent issues with the Juvéderm® while it is under the skin.
The General Results of Juvéderm® Injections
Patients will notice Juvéderm® results immediately following treatment, with lines and wrinkles less prominent and acne scars less visible. These results will only improve in the coming days.
Overall, patients who undergo Juvéderm® are satisfied by the filler’s ability to make them look years younger and more vibrant.
How Long Do Juvéderm® Results Last?
Juvéderm® results will last for roughly 6 to 9 months. Results will vary from patient to patient, but that’s a generally good time frame for the majority of patients who get dermal filler injections.
That span of 6 to 9 months is tyically much longer than other dermal fillers, even ones that contain hyaluronic acid. This is why Juvéderm® has become increasingly popular over the years among cosmetic surgeons and their patients.
Repeat Juvéderm® Injections
After the effects of the initial Juvéderm® injection have started to wear off, patients can consider undergoing an additional Juvéderm® injection. This will prolong the results of the initial injection procedure, allowing patients to experience the cosmetic benefits all over again.
