Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvéderm®?

Juvéderm® is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid. When Juvéderm® is injected into the deeper layers of your skin, it makes the surface of your skin appear fuller, firmer, and more youthful.

How does Juvéderm work?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found throughout your body. It gives your skin its strength and elasticity, and the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin declines as you age.

Juvéderm® and other brands of dermal fillers, such as Restylane®, use a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid that glides effortlessly into your skin when injected. Fillers can restore the volume and tone your skin had in your youth, without surgery or downtime.

Which areas can be rejuvenated with Juvéderm injections?

Juvéderm® offers natural-looking results that don’t affect your ability to make normal facial expressions. Juvéderm® and Restylane® can treat the following areas, adding youthful volume and contouring to the face:

  • Lip lines and adding volume
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Creases in the mouth area
  • Hollow, sunken cheeks
  • Under-eye area
  • Chin and jawline

Restylane® is also effective in improving skin volume and wrinkles on the hands.

Do dermal filler injections hurt?

Juvéderm® and Restylane® products contain a numbing solution to keep you comfortable during your procedure. Depending on the area you're having treated and other factors, your injections take between 15-60 minutes.

Most patients find the process tolerable. Your experienced provider also applies a topical numbing cream before beginning your procedure, to improve your comfort during the procedure. 

Is there any downtime?

Juvéderm® treatments don’t require any downtime.

Some patients can experience bruising at the injection site areas, though most patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Your expert at Dr. Alexis Aesthetics may recommend that you avoid strenuous exertion or direct exposure to the sun for 24 hours following your treatment.

How long will my results last?

You should see an immediate improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and skin volume right after your appointment. Depending on the type of filler, location of your injections, and other individual factors, your results last between six months to two years.
