Juvederm dermal filler is an FDA-approved injectable procedure to reduce facial signs of aging. It takes less than 30 minutes to administer the Juvederm treatment and patients can usually resume their normal activities right after the procedure.
The results will be visible shortly after the Juvederm treatment. However, final outcomes will only establish after the initial inflammation and redness are resolved.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialists, led by the judicious Dr. Gregg Reger, provides Juvederm facial filler medical spa treatment to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities in the glorious Lone Star State.
Longevity of Results
In a majority of cases, the outcomes of the Juvederm dermal filler treatment sustain from six to nine months. However, certain areas that receive Juvederm, especially the lips for augmentation, may need touchup treatments after two to three months to maintain the enhancement outcomes.
Minor and Transient Side Effects
Juvederm treatment is known to have only temporary, insignificant side effects and is a well-tolerated treatment.
The side effects associated with the treatment include inflammation, redness, and minor discomfort along with temporary bruising in the treated site. The treatment side effects are usually mild and resolve within some hours or days following the Juvederm procedure.
The Juvederm expert will advise the patient to not rub or massage the treated site after the treatment as this could cause the material to spread out and away from the treated site. The patient can apply make-up following the treatment but should avoid products comprising alcohol such as astringents and toners.
After the treatment, patients should also avoid exposure to cold, heat and sun for around two weeks. In addition, it is vital to wear sunscreen after Juvederm injections as well as avoid the use of products containing alcohol on the treated skin.
Results and Retreatment
Some Juvederm providers recommend patients to receive follow-up Juvederm injections to address any wrinkles or lines left untreated during the initial procedure. However, this occurs in rare cases. Juvederm contains Hyaluronic acid which the body naturally absorbs over a period.
Juvederm is based on cross-linked technology and has viscous gel consistency. This enables the gel to sustain in the body for much longer in comparison to other dermal fillers. Therefore, Juvederm offers more sustainability to patients relative to Restylane and other soft tissue filler treatments.
On an average, patients enjoy Juvederm outcomes for six to none months. It can even sustain for up to one year in some patients.
Juvederm rarely causes serious side effects. The minor side effects that Juvederm produces resolve within a week without the need for medical intervention. Juvederm side effects typically occur from the injection itself and include tenderness, inflammation, redness, bruising and firmness in the injection site.
