Ideal Candidates

Juvéderm injectable fillers are for women and men who have facial wrinkles and lines they would like to improve by increasing the volume behind the skin. It may also be beneficial if you have age-related volume loss or naturally thin cheeks or lips. Juvéderm wrinkle filler injections at Shumway Cosmetic Surgery are fantastic if you are looking to refresh the appearance of your face while avoiding the expense and downtime of facial plastic surgery (like facelifts, brow lifts, eyelid lifts, or facial implants).

Procedure Technique

Juvéderm treatments typically 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 any 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.

What to Expect

You should 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. The results of Juvéderm treatments typically can be seen for as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after 2 – 3 years of injections. Talk to Dr. Shumway about how soon to schedule your next injection session at Shumway Cosmetic Surgery to sustain your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

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. 

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 Shumway Cosmetic Surgery if you have any severe discomfort or signs of an infection following your injection.

What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Both fillers and relaxers smooth wrinkles but through different methods. Injectable relaxers, such as BOTOX, stop dynamic wrinkles from contracting (chronic muscle movements). Injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, improve static wrinkles by adding volume. Juvéderm is great for improving mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks or lips.

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 metabolizes the formula.
