How Results Are Achieved with Juvederm™

The injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.

Juvederm™ comes in two formulations so that treatment can be tailored to your unique needs. Juvederm™ Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds.

Juvederm™ Ultra Plus is more robust and is used for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.

The treatment session usually takes 30–60 minutes. It is performed with a topical and/or local anesthetic to minimize pain.

Correction with Juvederm™ is temporary. Touchup injections, as well as repeat injections, are usually needed to maintain optimal correction. Correction usually lasts 4 – 12 months, depending on the areas injected. Individual results do vary.

Prior to a Juvederm™ Treatment Session

Avoid aspirin or aspirin-containing products, unless medically contraindicated, Advil, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Green Tea, Garlic, Ginko, Ginseng, and St. John’s Wort for a period of 10 days prior to the Juvederm™ treatment session. If you have any active skin infections or inflammation, Juvederm™ cannot be injected.

If you have had cold sore outbreaks, needle punctures could contribute to another one. You should take medication to treat a potential outbreak prior to the Juvederm™ procedure.

After a Juvederm™ Treatment

Sunbathing and cold outdoor activities should be avoided until any redness or swelling disappears, which usually disappears in 1-2 days. Continue to avoid all aspirin and aspirin-like products, unless medically contraindicated, for 7 days after treatment with Juvederm™ to minimize bruising.

Avoid exercise as well as alcohol for 24 hours after treatment with Juvederm™.

Possible Side Effects of Juvederm™

Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting 7 days or less. The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
