What Is Juvéderm?
The body contains a sugar called hyaluronic acid. This naturally holds on to water. Juvéderm dermal fillers
are injections containing hyaluronic acid.
Unlike some products that have a granular consistency, Juvéderm is a smooth gel. Thus, you get increased volume with a natural appearance.
These injections correct moderate to severe folds and wrinkles on the face. For example, the lines between your nose and the corner of your mouth (called nasolabial folds
). It’s also used to create fuller lips.

used to meet specific objectives. All Juvéderm XC
have lidocaine in them which provides a local anesthetic that numbs the treatment site within seconds.

How Long Does Juvederm Last?
Juvederm products come in multiple formulations and studies have reported that Juvederm fillers can last up eighteen months.
Some individuals with higher metabolism may break the filler compound faster hence reducing how long it can last, treated areas that move a lot tend to break down quicker as well as compared to individuals with a slower metabolism which makes the filler compounds to last longer.
The thicker filler Juvederm Voluma
is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler currently available and in some individuals can last about two years.
It is ideal for cheeks, jawline and improving chin projection.
The thinner filler Juvederm Volbella
corrects fine lines around the lip without puffiness and despite its fine texture is also likely to last a year or more.
What Steps Can Be Taken To Prolong Your Dermal Fillers?
There are several things you can do to help your dermal fillers last longer.
Avoid putting stress or pressure on the treatment site. For example, try sleeping on your back so the pillow doesn’t press on the filler.
When washing your face, be gentle. Avoid pushing or scrubbing motions that can poke and move the fillers.
Make sure you are eating a healthy diet and drinking at least eight glasses of water each day. If your diet isn’t stellar, consider taking vitamin and mineral supplements. This will give your body the nutrients it needs.
Create a steadfast routine of applying sunscreen before going outside year-round. Gently exfoliate and moisturize your skin regularly. This is a good practice for keeping all your skin soft and smooth.
Juvéderm Vs Botox
Botox is made with a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This is the same bacterium that is responsible for the disease called botulism. But, when used in small doses it offers medical and cosmetic benefits.
For example, Botox smoothes out wrinkles and folds by weakening and paralyzing muscles. While Botox and Juvéderm have similar treatment goals but they use different approaches.
Botox relaxes muscles that cause wrinkles such as when you frown or raise your eyebrows. Juvéderm fillers work well for grooves, folds, and lines that need more volume making fillers a better choice for correcting issues not caused by movement.
Both treatments have similar recovery times. Yet, as described, Juvéderm lasts from nine to 18 months. Botox, however, needs additional treatment every three to six months.
How Much Does Juvéderm Cost?
Juvederm and other dermal filler pricing is based on the cost of an initial syringe, followed by a decreased cost for any additional syringes needed.
When considering the cost of Juvéderm filler treatments, remember to factor in all charges. This includes the cost of the filler and your provider’s charges for the procedure.
The range of cost for hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is $677-790 per syringe.
Some individuals may need more than one syringe for each treatment.
Botox procedures normally involve the use of several units. For example, 20 units are commonly used for each frown and forehead line procedure. 24 units is needed to manage crow’s feet.
Each Botox unit costs between $10 and $15. Thus, you may pay from about $300 to $1,000 for each appointment. Also, remember that Botox regimens need to be repeated between three and four months.
What are the Benefits of Juvederm?
We advice hyaluronic acid fillers due to safety and reversibility, but these fillers also offer other benefits.
A Range of Formulas
Because Juvederm offers so many different formulas, you can choose one that will work for whatever concern you have. Targeted formulas mean better results.
They are Reversible!
All hyaluronic acid based fillers can be dissolved with Hyaluronidase, a safe injection that breaks the bonds of the filler and reduce it to the normal hyaluronic acid molecules normally found in our skin. A tiny amount or the entire injected area can be dissolved over about 48 hours.
Natural Looking Results
Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm provide smooth, natural-looking enhancement that moves with your facial features.
Injections with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Stimulate Collagen Production
For about 4 months after an injection of Juvederm filler, your skin’s fibroblast cells in the treatment area make more collage than they did prior to the injection, adding to the improved appearance and overall health of the skin.
Juvederm Can Be Used With Other Treatments
Juvederm can be used with Botox or many other treatments and procedures. Some people choose to have Juvederm along with a skin rejuvenation procedure for maximum age-reversing results.
SOME KEY TAKEAWAYS
1. Dermal fillers are injected under the skin to smooth lines or add fullness to the face or hands.
2. Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) is injected into specific muscles to relax them. It can be used to flatten wrinkles as well as a number of other medical conditions.
3. The side effects of dermal fillers and Botox are usually mild. But they can have some serious risks if they are not administered properly.
