Frequently asked questions
Q: What is Juvederm?
A: This product is dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid. This compound is an all-natural, skin-identical structural protein similar to collagen or elastin. It is present in youthful skin but recedes and changes in structure as we age. These injections supplement your natural supply of hyaluronic acid, which smooths out signs of aging and bring out the best of your features.
Q: How long do these treatments last?
A: Juvederm fillers are proven to provide long-lasting results. The area being injected will determine the longevity of the treatment. Very dynamic areas, such as the lips, will need to be injected at approximately four-month intervals, but most other areas of the face will last six to nine months.
Q: Are there long-term benefits to Juvederm treatments?
A: Yes! Studies have indicated that not only do dermal fillers temporarily restore volume, they stimulate the long-term production of collagen and elastin, the skin’s other important structural proteins. It has been observed over the years that patients who may have required two to three syringes of filler for optimal correction during their initial visit frequently need smaller doses for their subsequent treatments.
Q: Are there side effects Juvederm injections?
A: While exceptionally rare, the most common side effect is mild bruising. Avoid blood-thinning over-the-counter medications, such as aspirin, for 48 hours before and after injection to decrease the chances of any bruising. Also avoid alcohol consumption for 48 hours before and after treatment. In the rare situations where bruising occurs, it is usually mild enough to be covered by makeup.
