Juvéderm injections usually only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Your face will be cleaned and injection spots will be marked. To minimize discomfort during the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). After your treatment, you can resume your normal routine, but strenuous activity, like exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your injections to avoid moving the filler into unintended areas.
What to Expect
You should experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm treatment, but you may also see mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm injections usually last up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after a few years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Plamondon about when to book a touch-up or full treatment at Caroline J. Plamondon, M.D. Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your injection treatment, a customized treatment plan will be created to fit your aesthetic goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Though most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about any pain. Following the treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside within a week, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your Juvéderm treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Fillers and relaxers address facial wrinkles but in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles caused by frequent muscle contractions. Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that corrects static wrinkles and adds volume. Juvéderm is ideal for treating mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to see the full results of your Juvéderm treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule a follow-up appointment if you would like to enhance your results or increase volume.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the filler.
