What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is an injectable cosmetic filler that uses hyaluronic acid, a natural compound your body already produces, to fill in lines and wrinkles as well as hollowed cheeks and thinning lips. As you age, your production of hyaluronic acid drops, but Juvéderm restores youthful levels to support and hydrate your skin.

What areas of the face can be treated with Juvéderm?

Discuss your aesthetic concerns with Dr. Barke. He’ll help you understand how Juvéderm can help do the following:

  • Restore volume in the midface
  • Plump the lips
  • Smooth smoker’s lines
  • Smooth marionette lines on the corners of your mouth
  • Reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds (or smile lines)

Juvéderm offers a variety of formulations to help you achieve your goals. You may also elect to combine Juvéderm with Botox® to get the look you want.

Do Juvéderm injections hurt?

You feel the slight prick of a needle during treatment, but most people find the injections quite tolerable as they’re infused with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to improve your comfort during treatment. Each session is quick, too, lasting just 15-30 minutes, depending on where you’re being treated.

When will I notice the effects of Juvéderm?

The results of Juvéderm are noticeable immediately. You may have slight swelling or redness following the injections, but these minor side effects resolve within about a week. If you decide after 10-14 days that you want tweaks to your look, come back to our office, and Dr. Barke adds more filler if necessary.

How long do the results of Juvéderm injections last?

Juvéderm offers a temporary fix for wrinkles, lines, and lost facial volume. The benefits usually last for about 12 months, depending on your personal metabolism and the area treated. You can get regular maintenance treatments to keep your new look, however.

Do I need to schedule downtime following Juvéderm treatments?

You don’t need to schedule any downtime following Juvéderm treatments. You can go right back to work or other daily activities.
