What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. There are several products in the Juvederm family. They all are used to help people address the facial signs of aging. Each product in the Juvederm line features different hyaluronic acid bonding and concentrations. The other products are tailored to target specific problems when injected into different areas and depths.
Juvederm fillers have a smooth, gel-like consistency.
How does Juvederm work?
Juvederm adds volume to the facial tissue through its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. It stimulates the production of the connective tissue that plumps the skin (collagen). As you get older, the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen decreases. This increases the appearance of sagging and wrinkling of the facial skin. During the procedure, your doctor, physician assistant, or nurse typically uses a pen to mark the areas to be treated. Your doctor will then inject Juvederm into the target area. They will also lightly massage the area to ensure even distribution and reduce the chance of swelling. The entire procedure usually takes between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the size. Treated Juvederm injections contain a small amount of pain-reducing lidocaine. This will help minimize pain or discomfort during treatment and make it disappear quickly.
How to prepare for Juvederm?
Before a Juvederm treatment, speak with a medical professional about your cosmetic goals and expectations. Juvederm procedures are minimally invasive, so they’re frequently done on the same day as the consultation. The process is minimally invasive and doesn’t need much preparation. Before consultation and treatment, simple instructions generally involve avoiding medication like aspirin, ibuprofen, and St. John’s wort. And you’ll want to avoid alcohol in the weeks leading up to treatment. Smoking is also discouraged before treatment.
Avoiding these things can help prevent bruising. Also, let your doctor know of any allergies or sensitivities.

What to expect after Juvederm?
Recovery time is minimal. But, people are advised to avoid strenuous activity—Sun exposure. I was wearing makeup and consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours post-treatment. Most notice the effects of Juvederm right away, or after the swelling reduces. Results typically last between six months and two years.
This depends on which Juvederm product was used.
What are the risks and side effects associated with Juvederm?
You can expect some swelling and bruising. Other common side effects include redness, tenderness, lumps or bumps, minor pain, or itching. All of these side effects usually subside within two to four weeks. More severe side effects are typically associated with unprofessional handling, like injecting Juvederm into a blood vessel unintentionally. Complications can include permanent scarring, vision abnormalities, blindness, or stroke. That’s why it’s essential to choose your doctor wisely. Ensure they are trained, certified, and licensed to perform the procedure.
