If you are looking for a non-surgical approach to improve the appearance of wrinkles, facial creases, and volume loss, Juvéderm filler may be an excellent option. This injectable is a top choice at Dallas Dermatology Partners among patients who want subtle and natural-looking improvements.
Besides delivering beautiful results, one of the biggest advantages of hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvéderm is that it provides support to the facial skin -- to further combat the aging process. Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, especially the dermis, where it attracts and retains water molecules for hydrated skin.
Because of this biocompatibility, the risk of adverse Juvéderm side effects is rare. Another bonus is that it can be dissolved instantly if you are not happy with the results. However, in expert hands, this filler can correct signs of aging, and sun damage-- and is a preventative tool for keeping skin fresh, plump, and youthful.
Juvéderm injections add temporary volume and improve mid-face volume loss, fine lines, and deeper wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid restores the skin's support structure and smooths out non-dynamic facial lines and creases.
The Juvéderm family of injectables has different hyaluronic acid concentrations and viscosity, and each is designed for different purposes and areas of the face. Our dermatologists can determine which type of Juvéderm is best suited for your skin type and goals.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC softens mild to moderate nasolabial folds and plumps lips for up to one year.
- Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC softens moderate to severe nasolabial folds and provides structure and volume to the lips for up to one year.
- Juvéderm VOLUMA™ XC corrects age-related volume loss in the cheeks and can last for two years. This version can also be used to augment the chin and contour the jawline.
- Juvéderm VOLBELLA™ XC Jis designed for subtle lip augmentation and to smooth out vertical lines around the mouth; results last up to one year.
If you have realistic expectations, have no allergies to lidocaine, and would like to see improvements with the following concerns, Juvéderm may be an effective rejuvenating option for:
- Age-related volume loss
- Hollow cheeks
- Smile lines or nasolabial folds
- Shallow contours
- Sagging jawline
- Deep marionette lines
- Vertical lines around the mouth
- Thin lips
- Lip wrinkles resulting in a dehydrated appearing lip
- Small chin
Yes, Juvéderm fillers are FDA-approved for adults over the age of 21 and require no allergy testing. While the risk of serious complications is rare, common side effects may include lumps or swelling at the injection site, which typically resolves in 48 hours. Minor bruising may also develop but is easily camouflaged with makeup.
Juvéderm injections take about 15-20 minutes to administer in our Dallas office. Although the filler contains lidocaine to improve comfort, a topical anesthetic is typically applied 20 minutes prior to the procedure. While it takes a couple of days for Juvéderm to settle in fully, you will see skin-plumping, wrinkle-smoothing effects immediately after treatment.
This depends on the type of Juvéderm used and the injection site. In most cases, Juvéderm will last a maximum of 18 months and an average of 6-9 months. Repeat treatments and touch-ups will help ensure results last longer.
Tips for Juvéderm Aftercare
Once treatment is completed, you can return to normal activities. We recommend that patients avoid strenuous exercise, excessive heat, sun exposure, and alcohol consumption for the first 24 hours as this can increase the risk of bruising and swelling. Don't massage the treated area for at least six hours and ask about Arnica pills to reduce post-injection bruising.
