What Is Juvederm?

Published July 22

Juvederm is a cosmetic treatment known as a filler.  It is used to restore facial contours and correct signs of aging. This procedure targets the face, specifically the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. The Juvederm filler uses a base of hyaluronic acid.  

According to The Face Place Medispa, to inject, the product takes 15 to 60 minutes. It is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures done in the United States as more than 2 million procedures were performed last year. 

Juvederm was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006. The average cost of the hyaluronic acid-based filler treatment is about $450-$600 per syringe.  You can see noticeable results immediately after the procedure, and they can last one to two years. 

In the Juvederm family, several products are used to help the facial signs of aging. The main difference within each product in the Juvederm line is the concentrations of hyaluronic acid. They are each made to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths. The hyaluronic fillers have a gel-like consistency. 

What is Hyaluronic Acid Filler?

Hyaluronic acid is a commonly occurring sugar found in the body. It acts by keeping in the water at the injection site and working as a cushioning force. Most people need more than one procedure to get the best results. 

The filler is suitable for every skin color and skin type. It is best used for improving medium depth wrinkles on either the face or the hand. It is essential to notice that the filler’s results are delicate, so people will only see that you look more youthful and refreshed. 

How Long Does The Juvederm Correction Last?

Juvederm is a temporary correction, and you will need to reapply usually after 9 to 12 months of the first injection. The good news is that smaller doses are necessary for repeat procedures. 

Juvederm Side Effects

After a Juvederm treatment, you can expect mild to moderate side effects that will last less than seven days. The most common side effects include:

  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Firmness
  • Swelling
  • Lumps
  • Bumps
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Discoloration

Keep in mind that with all skin injection treatments, there is always a risk of infection. 

Is Juvederm A Safe Procedure?

Yes, it is. But, if you are breastfeeding or pregnant, you should not have this procedure. If you have a bleeding disorder or have used blood thinners recently to avoid dermal fillers, if you suffer from allergies, you need to consult your doctor before having these injections.
