Before you jump in on our 2018 Juvederm Special, we want to give you some more information about this amazing cosmetic treatment. Contact us if you have additional questions that were not addressed here.

What Exactly Is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a nonsurgical treatment that is used to fill and add volume to various areas of the face. This treatment is administered by aesthetic healthcare professionals like dermatologists who use a syringe to inject the filler to the desired area of your face.

The clear gel that is injected is called hyaluronic acid. Your skin naturally produces this acid to help deliver and maintain the moisture and nutrients your skin needs. As a result, this acid helps maintain volume, smoothness, and elasticity in your skin.

Which Areas of the Face Can Be Treated with Juvederm?

Juvederm is used to fill lines around the mouth and nose as well as lines in the forehead. Some choose to use it to reduce the bags under their eyes. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of facial scarring caused by things like acne. Juvederm is also an excellent treatment used to enhance the size and shape of your lips.

How Soon Will Juvederm Results Appear?

Juvederm results can be seen the same day of the treatment. However, it will take a week or two for the injection to fully settle into your skin. Remember that because swelling may occur, particularly after a lip or under eye treatment, it may take a few days before you can appreciate your results.

How Long Will Juvederm Results Last?

Because of the natural substance used with Juvederm, this treatment can last longer than other common fillers like collagen and fat injections. Results can last as long as 6 months to a year, and sometimes even longer.

Is the Treatment Painful?

Of course, any injection can be painful; however, pain and discomfort are often minimized with topical anesthetic creams or injected local anesthesia. Additionally, the syringes used for the treatment have very fine needles, meaning that smaller amounts of the gel are injected at a time, making the process less painful.

How Long Does a Juvederm Treatment Take?

The length of your treatment depends on the number of treatment areas as well as the number of injections your are receiving. Normally, Juvederm injection time can take from 15 minutes up to an hour.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Because this treatment uses a product that is naturally produced by your skin, the risks of allergic reactions are very low. However, common side effects include temporary swelling, redness, tenderness, and bruising. These side effects normally subside within a few days.

How Much Does Juvederm Cost?

Your treatment cost will depend upon the areas you are treating as well as the number of filler syringes used. At Front Range Dermatology, the price for one syringe is normally $700, and the price for two syringes would be $1,200.
