Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm treatments, on average, only last around 15 – 30 minutes based on how many areas are being addressed. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort throughout the procedure, Juvéderm formulas contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). Following your procedure, you may continue your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, such as exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your Juvéderm injections to prevent pushing the gel into unwanted areas.
You usually see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm injection, but you could also have light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for around 7 – 10 days. Depending on the product selected, the results of Juvéderm can last up to two years. Talk to our aesthetic team about how soon to schedule your next injection session at Allegro MedSpa of Novato to sustain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Costs for a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your Juvéderm treatment, a personalized injection plan will be developed to match your goals. Once this is done, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
While many patients don't think it's needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you're concerned about discomfort. After the injection, you might have mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should reduce over the next week. Please contact Allegro MedSpa of Novato if you have any severe discomfort or signs of infection following your injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers correct wrinkles but through different methods. Injectable relaxers, such as BOTOX, treat dynamic wrinkles created by chronic muscle movements. Injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, improves static wrinkles by adding volume. Juvéderm is great for improving mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait several days to view the complete improvements from your injections. Usually, it takes only one appointment to reach your aesthetic goal. However, you may make another appointment if you want to improve your results.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last up to two years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower, depending on the speed at which your body absorbs the formula.
