How Long Does Juvederm® Last?

Dermal fillers have many uses. They offer a non-surgical way to restore lost volume, boost and enhance your features, and smooth lines and wrinkles. The Juvederm® family of fillers safely adds volume so you can restore your youthful appearance. Each Juvederm® formula works for a different part of the face so your provider can fine-tune your results.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are bio-safe materials injected into the skin to add volume. This volume can lift and smooth lines and wrinkles. It can also restore lost volume or add fullness to the cheeks, sculpt the chin, and make lips look plumper. Dermal fillers use several different materials, and each has unique properties. Your Specialty Aesthetic Surgery specialist will determine which type of filler will work best for your needs. 

Dermal Fillers

What is Juvederm®?

The Juvederm® family of fillers uses hyaluronic acid (HA) to add volume. HA is a large molecule that occurs naturally in your skin. It has become a popular skincare ingredient due to its ability to attract and hold moisture. HA works as a dermal filler because it can form cross-links and chains that affect its behavior. Some Juvederm® fillers have a thick, dense formula, while others have a more fluid, smoother formula. These properties affect how your provider uses them. 

How Long Does Juvederm® Last?

Factors that affect how long Juvederm® lasts include the area of the face and the filler formula. Fillers that add volume and shape to the cheeks have a thicker formula than those intended for a flexible areas like the lips.

Juvederm® Vollure

Juvederm® Ultra Plus

How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm® are usually priced by the syringe. Depending on the areas you have treated, you may require more than one syringe. Pricing varies between providers and in different areas. Different Juvederm® formulas may also have different pricing. Schedule a visit for an accurate estimate based on your goals. 

Do I Need Botox® or Juvederm®?

These two injectables treat lines and wrinkles, but they are not interchangeable. They treat different kinds of wrinkles. Botox® treats lines that form from muscle movements that crease and fold the skin. It works by relaxing the muscles and smoothing away wrinkles. Juvederm® works on lines that result from facial volume loss or age-related skin laxity. Both are very safe and effective, and many people have both in different parts of the face. 

How to Choose a Juvederm® Provider

At Specialty Aesthetic Surgery, your providers have extensive training and experience using dermal fillers. In addition to Juvederm®, they can offer several other types of fillers if they think those will work better for you. Your Juvederm® injector should have a strong knowledge of facial anatomy, so your enhancement looks natural and smooth. 

Is There Any Downtime After Juvederm®?

Juvederm® treatment only takes 15 to 20 minutes. You can return to your usual activities immediately afterward. Any slight swelling or bruising typically disappears within a day or two. Follow your aftercare instructions so that the dermal filler has time to settle into place. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?

Most people over the age of 21 make good candidates for Juvederm®. Your body recognizes HA as a familiar material, and adverse reactions are extremely uncommon. If you want to add volume to your cheeks, shape your chin, plump your lips, or smooth wrinkles, Juvederm® can help. You should not have Juvederm® if you have a skin infection or sores, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have had a reaction to an HA product before.
