Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a well-established line of injectable dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid gel to restore lost volume and hydration to the tissues beneath your skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body that provides moisture, softness, and youthful volume to your skin. Voluma, Volbella, Vollure, and VERSA are all hyaluronic gels with varying degrees of lift, enabling your practitioner to achieve the best, most natural result.

Most hyaluronic acid fillers contain a lidocaine anesthetic to provide the same natural-looking results with enhanced comfort.

What do Juvederm and other hyaluronic acid fillers treat?

Hyaluronic acid fillers work beneath your skin’s surface to smooth away facial wrinkles and other signs of aging. The team at HK Dermatology chooses just the right filler to treat common aesthetic concerns, such as:

  • Nasolabial folds or parentheses lines
  • Moderate to severe facial folds
  • Sunken or droopy cheeks
  • Tear troughs to minimize sunken lower lids or bags
  • Wrinkles around the nose and mouth
  • Marionette lines and oral commissures to correct upside down smile
  • Pre-jowl and jawline to reduce the appearance of jowls

The skin care professionals at HK Dermatology carefully evaluate your unique skin and design a customized injectable filler plan for you.

How does Juvederm work?

Over time, factors like age, gravity, and sun exposure cause the tissues beneath your skin to break down. This decrease in volume leads to signs of aging such as deep folds in your skin and sagging cheeks.

Juvederm and other hyaluronic acid gels restore lost volume and smooth away signs of aging. With only one 15-60 minute treatment, the team at HK Dermatology can renew the youthful contour of your face.

What should I expect from a Juvederm treatment?

During your initial consultation, one of the skin care experts at HK Dermatology examines your skin and listens to your specific cosmetic concerns. Then, they create an individualized treatment plan to achieve your unique aesthetic goals.

Juvederm and other hyaluronic acid gels injections take between 15-60 minutes depending on the specific area of your face the team is treating. Afterward, you should be able to return to normal activities right away. However, you should avoid wearing makeup or participating in strenuous activities for at least 24 hours.

Results often appear immediately after your hyaluronic acid filler treatment and can last 1-2 years. Side effects are typically mild, but you may experience swelling, redness, bruising, or soreness for 2-4 weeks after treatment.

At HK Dermatology, bruising is minimized by the use of micro-cannulas to inject your filler in most areas. Should you develop a bruise, most bruises can be rapidly minimized with one to three treatments with one of our lasers.
