Juvederm is an injection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers which once administered it takes 9months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. In the Juvederm community, it’s regrettable that some people after getting the injection, they look back and say, “I wish I knew or had information before I went for the treatment.” For this reason, it’s clear that some are not satisfied with the results.
To avoid regrets and perhaps to enlighten you a bit, below is information which I believe is helpful.
Choosing an Injector
Never take a shortcut when it comes to choosing an injector. Do your homework wisely. Consult a plastic surgeon and find out more about the process. In addition, whoever does the injection should be certified. Moreover, he/she should be specialized in this field. In my opinion, you better go with the experience than the title. For this reason, not all surgeons got great hands for the needlework. So a person who does these procedures on regular basis and who knows the reaction of the product is highly recommended.
How does the product work
Juvederm is a gel that is injected into wrinkles and lines to fill them. Also, it can be used for lip enhancement making is more versatile than Restalyne. The Juvederm smile brand is the one used for lips enhancement. It’s injected into the lips to make them fuller.
Well, just like any other medical procedure there are risks but very rare. This is one reason you should go to a trained surgeon. Nevertheless, some post-injection and minor bruising is to be expected although they will subside soon. Just follow your doctor’s advice and avoid putting too much pressure on the treated spots.
How long does it last?
The duration will largely depend on the area you inject and the formula. The filler can last to a minimum of 6-months and a maximum of 2 years. This formula goes away faster in the lips because of vigorous activities (talking, eating, laughing etc.) If the filler is injected below eyelids to encounter hollowness, the filler can stay up to 3-years because this is a static area and it will sit on the bone thus, it will not go away quickly. In addition, thinner formulas have less staying power compared to thicker formulas like Restylane Lyft variations and aforementioned Voluma.
How much does it cost?
I can’t actually pinpoint the exact cost of each syringe or the brand. The reason to this is because technology changes every single minute and the formula ingredients might change after the publication of this post. That might result in changes in price. So, the actual price will be determined by the doctor. But it should be around $200 to $300.
What to expect after the treatment?
Expect a smooth younger looking skin. But, this procedure does not always go well with everybody. So do adequate research about your skin etc. just to be sure everything will go smooth. You can usually get a free consultation. This is a good way to make sure you are comfortable with facility and also to make sure you are an ideal candidate. We did this when we went to a Juvederm Scottsdale inject-able bar.
