Juvéderm Q & A

Amethyst Wellness

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a family of injectable fillers made of hyaluronic acid that adds volume to your face without the need for surgery or downtime.

What areas does it treat?

Each Juvéderm formula is designed to either lift your cheeks, smooth lines surrounding your mouth, or plump your lips. Juvéderm Voluma®, for example, adds plumpness to the cheek area.

What is treatment like?

After discussing your medical history and treatment goals, your face will be analyzed. Depending on the treatment area, the injection process takes 15-60 minutes.

Is Juvéderm painful?

Juvéderm gels labeled “XC” contain the numbing aid lidocaine, which helps minimize discomfort. If you’re still concerned about pain, you can request ice or topical numbing ointment before your treatment.

When will results be noticeable?

Unlike other cosmetic treatments, Juvéderm fillers provide full results immediately. As soon as the injections are in place, the treatment area looks fuller.

Are there side effects?

Side effects from Juvéderm injections are rare but may include temporary bruising, discoloration, itching, firmness, redness, and swelling around the injection sites. The gel may also be visible as tiny bumps under your skin. When this occurs, the bumps tend to diminish over time. Any side effects tend to be mild or moderate and last up to 2-4 weeks.

Is there any aftercare?

After your treatment, you’ll likely be able to go straight back to your usual activities. To preserve the filler and stave off post-inflammatory pigment changes from the injections, protect your face from the sun with sunscreen or a wide-brimmed hat when you’re outdoors.

How long do results last?

Juvéderm results usually last 1-2 years, depending on the formula used. Some research shows that repeated hyaluronic acid filler injections may stimulate your skin to produce more collagen, leading to smoother skin. In other words, you may find that fewer injections are needed in the future.
