The popularity of Juvéderm® is skyrocketing—and for a good reason. The non-surgical FDA-approved anti-aging treatment can dramatically improve the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles, deep folds, and acne scars with instant, long-lasting results (typically 9-12 months). However, as with most patients considering cosmetic procedures, you likely have plenty of questions. Below, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Paul Fondacaro from Dr. Park Avenue in Hoboken, NJ, offers a few basic answers.
Cosmetic Surgeon Answers Juvéderm FAQs
What Is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a smooth, clear, hydraulic acid-based facial filler designed to replace volume loss caused by aging and sun damage. Strategically placed injections are used to restore facial fullness while combating lines and wrinkles.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Juvéderm injections take under a half hour to administer. You should plan for additional time to discuss your goals, medical history, and aftercare instructions with your cosmetic surgeon.
Is It Permanent?
Juvéderm generally lasts between 9-12 months. Then it will break down and be absorbed by your body. Your cosmetic surgeon will likely recommend regular touch-ups and repeat injections to maintain the results.
Can I Wear Makeup Afterward?
Most Juvéderm patients can resume their normal makeup routine immediately following treatment. However, you should avoid alcohol-based products and unnecessary touching or massaging of the treatment area for at least a couple days.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Patients may experience bruising, swelling, redness, itching, and discoloration. In most cases, these side effects are mild and subside in under a week’s time.
