Ideal Candidates for JUVÉDERM® Injections

The best candidates for JUVÉDERM® injections are ones who are in relatively good health, have realistic expectations of what dermal fillers can accomplish, and also do not have a history of severe allergic reactions to gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine. Additionally, the patient should be at least 21 years old, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and not have an underlying bleeding disorder. 

How Does JUVÉDERM® Work?

The active ingredient in JUVÉDERM® is hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced by the body. The primary function of hyaluronic acid is moisture retention in the skin and connective tissue. As we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid diminishes, allowing skin to sag, wrinkle, and sink.

JUVÉDERM® adds hyaluronic acid to the skin, restoring volume, giving gentle lift to sagging skin, and erasing fine lines, deep creases, and hollow depressions.

What Is the Treatment Process Like?

During treatment, JUVÉDERM® is carefully injected in precise locations to restore volume and address signs of aging.

Treatment with JUVÉDERM® is quick and painless. Formulated with lidocaine for optimal patient comfort, JUVÉDERM® injections take between 15 and 60 minutes to administer depending on the areas being treated, and require no downtime afterward.

How Is My JUVÉDERM® Treatment Plan Developed?

The type of JUVÉDERM® treatment you’ll need will depend on your asethetic goals as well as your current facial features. For example, if you are looking to eliminate the appearance of fine deep lines and wrinkles on your face, JUVÉDERM® Vollure would benefit you the most. However, if you are interested in increasing the volume of your lips, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus may be the best option.

Determining which treatment is best for you will happen during your first consultation with the expert team at The Smile Centre where our providers will assess your facial features, needs, and goals. Not only does Dr. Richard Stanley and Dr. Gabriela Rocha understand the importance of restoring a great smile, but they also know that achieving your facial aesthetic goals can have a meaningful impact on self-confidence and self-esteem.

Are There Side Effects?

JUVÉDERM® is among the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the United States. This FDA-approved filler enjoys very few side effects.

Possible side effects of JUVÉDERM® treatment include:

  • Bruising and Redness

  • Lumps, Bumps, and Swelling

  • Itchy Skin

  • Over-correction

  • Skin Discoloration

  • Infection

Side effects with JUVÉDERM® are rare, but not impossible. During your initial consultation, we will assess your medical history to determine your candidacy for JUVÉDERM® and cover pre and post-procedure precautions that can help to reduce risks.

Are JUVÉDERM® Injections Painful?

Every patient’s pain threshold is different, however, most patients tolerate Juvederm injections well with only mild discomfort. And since some types of Juvederm already contains lidocaine, so injections are well tolerated. Topical anesthesia can also be applied prior to injection as well.

How Is Recovery From JUVÉDERM®?

Recovery from JUVÉDERM® is incredibly quick. Most people can resume normal activities right away, though some choose to wait for 24 hours. It may take two or more weeks for bruising and redness to diminish, but these things should subside on their own as your results improve.

JUVÉDERM® enhances the skin’s ability to retain moisture, in turn adding volume to aged areas of the face. There will be some immediate correction following treatment, but full results may take up to 14 days to become obvious.

How Long Will Results Last?

Results from JUVÉDERM® can last for 12 to 18 months. You can maintain results through regularly scheduled touch-ups or simply allow the product to naturally dissipate and the skin to return to its pre-treatment state. JUVÉDERM® treatments do not exacerbate or speed the aging process and will not produce a more aged look if injections are discontinued.

What Can I Do to Make My Results Last As Long As Possible?

While JUVÉDERM® treatment results are designed to last as long as eighteen months, there are several things patients can do to prevent their JUVÉDERM® fillers from dissolving quicker. These habits can include:

  • Drinking water: Keeping your skin hydrated helps JUVÉDERM® last longer and prevents additional wrinkles from developing.
  • Collagen serums: Encouraging the production of new collagen will allow for the skin to look as rejuvenated as possible in addition to the effects of your JUVÉDERM® treatment.
  • Sunscreen and sun protection: Exposing your treated skin to UV radiation and sun rays can cause your filler to break down faster. To prevent this, invest in a sunscreen to use daily and keep sun exposure limited.

What Are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM®?

In addition to restoring lost volume, JUVÉDERM®also offers the following benefits:

  • Natural-looking results.
  • Plumps lips.
  • Lifts cheekbones.
  • Contours facial features, including the jawline.
  • Little to no downtime.
  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases.

Treatment with JUVÉDERM® is also customizable, which will help you reach your aesthetic goals while maintaining a natural-looking appearance.
