Juvéderm Q & A
What is JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM adds volume to your facial tissues through its primary ingredient, hyaluronic acid: A filler that’s injected under the skin to replace lost facial volume and fill out wrinkles.
This naturally occurring substance may also stimulate the production of new collagen, a connective tissue that keeps your skin supple. You naturally lose collagen as you age, which results in wrinkles, but hyaluronic acid injections can restore youthful-looking skin.
Which areas can I have treated with JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM isn’t a single product. It’s a collection of different injectables that contain varying bonding concentrations of hyaluronic acid, depending on the targeted treatment area. If you want to plump your cheeks and contour your face, for instance, you’re going to benefit from JUVÉDERM Voluma® XC.
Or if you wish to improve your skin’s plumpness and fill in wrinkles, you may benefit from JUVÉDERM® XC or JUVÉDERM Vollure™ XC. This revolutionary line of injectables can even plump your lips with the JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC treatment.
How long does JUVÉDERM last?
Because each type of JUVÉDERM has different bonding concentrations, your results may vary depending on which line you select.
Typically, JUVÉDERM injections last for 12-24 months. Since JUVÉDERM gives your skin volume and smoothes lines, you’re going to love your natural, long-lasting results. Plus when JUVÉDERM does wear off, you can safely have treatments repeated.
What should I expect during my JUVÉDERM treatment?
You don’t need to make any special preparations for your JUVÉDERM appointment. But if you requested a topical numbing cream, plan on getting to the office early, since it takes up to half an hour to take full effect.
During your appointment, your provider marks your skin in the precise locations where you need JUVÉDERM injections. After gently injecting JUVÉDERM, Dr. Chatterjee massages the treatment area to help ensure that the product distributes evenly in your skin. This also minimizes swelling and redness.
Depending on your treatment area, your entire visit can last from 15-60 minutes. Since JUVÉDERM instantly plumps your skin, expect to notice an improvement before leaving the office. You might have some initial swelling, although your optimal results should shine through within 48 hours.
