Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm injections, on average, only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. Your face will be cleaned and to minimize discomfort during the treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied. Additionally, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic) which help reduce any pain that you may experience during the procedure. After your treatment, you can resume your normal routine, but you should be careful to not firmly rub your face after your injections to avoid moving the filler into unintended areas.
You should experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm treatment, but you may also see mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for a few days. Depending on the formula, the results of Juvéderm can last up to two years. Talk to Dr. Kingston about when to book a touch-up or full treatment at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC to maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your injection treatment, a customized treatment plan will be created to fit your aesthetic goals and budget. After this, Dr. Kingston can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Though most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about any pain. Following the treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside within a few days, depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your Juvéderm treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers address facial wrinkles but in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles caused by frequent muscle contractions. Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that corrects static wrinkles and adds volume. Juvéderm is ideal for treating mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to see the full results of your Juvéderm treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule a follow-up appointment if you would like to improve your results.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This will vary, depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the filler.
