Dermal Fillers FAQ
What is Juvederm?
JUVEDERM is a gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. JUVEDERM fills in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the folds running from the sides of the bottom of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth), achieving a smooth and natural look.
It can also be used to eliminate under eyes circles, volumize your lips and your cheeks to give you a younger more youthful appearance.
How long does the results last?
Juvederm has FDA clearance to last up to one year with one treatment. In our practice we find that typically Juvederm Ultra lasts up to six months while Juvederm Ultra Plus can last up to a year. Longevity also depends on the area being treated. Juvederm can last only 3-6 months in lips.
How is Juvederm different from Restylane?
They are both made from hyaluronic acid (HA’s). We find the results to be very similar. At the end of the day, it all depends on the clinician and what product they favor and are comfortable with. We find the results and longevity to be the same.
Does Juvederm injections hurt?
Your injection experience should be very comfortable. Now with the introduction of the new Juvederm with lidocane – i.e. Juvederm XC, no one should experience discomforting or pain. Our clients especially love Juvederm XC in their lips as this is the most sensitive area to treat. With the new Juvederm XC, the experience is much more relaxing.
How much does Juvederm cost?
The price varies depending on the number of syringes you need and the type of product used to give you your ultimate result. Typically, our average clients need 2 – 3 syringes of HA’s to get full correction. Price can average around $450 to $550 per syringe.
