Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm injections commonly take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being corrected. Your face will be cleaned, and the injection spots will be selected. To reduce discomfort during the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. After your treatment, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity, including exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your treatment to avoid massaging the filler into other areas.
You typically experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm procedure, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers usually are visible for up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after multiple years of treatments. Talk to our team about when to book a touch-up or full session at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa to keep your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Your cost for Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your Juvéderm injections being administered, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Although most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about pain. Following the treatment, you may feel some slight swelling and bruising that will usually be gone in 5 – 7 days, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Injectable relaxers and fillers improve wrinkles throughout the face but with different approaches. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, correct dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that corrects static wrinkles by increasing volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
It may take 1 – 3 days to see the full results of your treatment. Generally, it only takes one session to achieve your goals. However, you can schedule a second appointment if you would like to intensify your results.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last from one to two years. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the product.
