WHAT IS JUVÉDERM USED FOR?
Juvéderm is great for the kinds of wrinkles that form with age as your skin begins to lose its elasticity. These are also called “static wrinkles.”
In addition to its anti-aging properties, Juvéderm can also smooth, plump, and contour targeted areas of the face.
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds
- Smoker’s lines/lipstick lines
- Cheek contouring
- Plumping lips
HOW DOES JUVÉDERM INJECTABLE GEL TREATMENT WORK?
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found throughout the body, including in the connective tissues, eyes, and joints. Juvéderm also contains lidocaine to reduce pain sensitivity during the injection.
Hyaluronic acid attracts and retains water, which hydrates the skin and makes it appear more radiant. Once injected, HA gel fillers like Juvéderm work by adding volume to the skin to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
The Homewood cosmetic dermatology team at Skin Wellness also offers Botox, Sculptra, and other facial injection procedures. To find out which popular injectable is right for you, set up a consultation with one of our certified dermatologists. We’re ready to discuss all your cosmetic desires!

WHAT IS JUVÉDERM RECOVERY LIKE?
The entire Juvéderm procedure takes just 15 to 30 minutes. At your appointment, your provider will inject the Juvéderm gel filler into the targeted areas using a fine needle. Downtime is minimal and most clients go straight back to their usual schedules.
For the first few weeks after treatment, patients should avoid unnecessary sun, heat, and cold. They should wear sunscreen and they should not consume alcohol. Potential side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site, but these subside in a day or two. Juvéderm cosmetic treatments should not be used on patients who have had a history of multiple severe allergies.
Your provider will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your skin post-treatment. They may schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your results and make any necessary adjustments.
HOW LONG WILL JUVÉDERM LAST?
Once we inject dermal fillers, you’ll see immediate results in the mirror! How long fillers last depends on your skin concerns, the treatment area, and how fast your body metabolizes them.
Typically, Juvéderm treatments last between one and two years. Deeper injections in the facial tissue tend to be longer-lasting and less painful. In areas with a lot of movement (for example, the lips) the repetitive motion of the muscles will break down the fillers faster. Maintaining a healthy diet, staying hydrated, avoiding sun exposure, and keeping up with a good skincare routine will help your fillers last as long as possible.
We recommend annual touch-up treatments for patients with fillers. If you are not satisfied with your results, Juvéderm is reversible. It can be dissolved by injections of hyaluronidase, an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid.
