What is Juvederm? You may have heard this on TV or from a friend who has had the treatment performed. Juvederm is a medical treatment used to lessen the appearance of deep wrinkles or skin creases that develop in our skin as we age. The most common areas treated are the creases that extend from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth, on the lips and chins areas. The medication is injected beneath the skin beneath the wrinkles/creases lessening their visibility giving you a more youthful appearance. The beneficial effects of Juvederm can last somewhere between 9 months to a year.
Patients should consider all aspects of having Juvederm injections. They wonder about recovery, the cost, and whether they are the right candidate. The team here at JHopkins Plastic Surgery will tell you here and now that we have your best interest in mind, so whether or not you’re the right candidate, we’ll inform you. If you’re worried about the risks of Juvederm injections, don’t worry; our key goal is your knowledge.
The best candidates for Juvederm injections are the ones who are relatively healthy and don’t mind some minor discomfort during the procedure. If you have any questions about the injections, we’re happy to answer any of them, so you can feel more confident walking into the procedure room.
After the procedure itself, you may experience some bruising or minor swelling in the areas treated. This is normal. You should see the results of the Juvederm almost immediately after the injections. We stress that after the procedure, you take it easy for the first 24 hours afterwards.
There are some mild side effects of Juvederm that you should be aware of. Some patients report minor swelling or discomfort in the injection area that resolves within a day or two. Bruising is also a common temporary side effect of Juvederm injections. If you have any pre-existing medical issues or sensitivities to fillers or injectables, make sure to speak to your surgeon before your Juvederm injection.
The cost of Juvederm injections can vary depending on the area to be treated and the number of injections you will need.
