Juvéderm Procedure Technique
The ideal candidates for Juvéderm injectable treatments are women and men who have facial wrinkles and lines they want to improve. It can also help if you have naturally thin or age-related volume loss in your cheeks or lips. Juvéderm dermal filler treatments at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE are fantastic if you are looking to refresh the appearance of your face without the expense and recovery of cosmetic surgery (like eyelid lifts, brow lifts, facelifts, or lip implants).
Juvéderm injections commonly only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being addressed. Your face will be cleaned, and your injection spots will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort during the procedure, Juvéderm formulas contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). After your treatment, you may continue your normal routine, but strenuous activity such as exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your Juvéderm injections to avoid pushing the filler into unwanted areas.
What to Expect from Juvéderm
You will usually experience a noticeable improvement immediately after your Juvéderm injection, but you may also have mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for around 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm treatments can usually be seen for up to one year; some patients find that their improvements last longer after 2 – 3 years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Ryan about when to book a touch-up or full injection session at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE to sustain your results.

How much does Juvéderm cost?
Costs for Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Prior to your Juvéderm treatment, a customized treatment plan will be developed to fit your goals and budget. After this, Dr. Ryan can discuss cost estimates and payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
While 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 pain. Following the treatment, you may have some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside over the next week depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Injectable relaxers and fillers both reduce the appearance of wrinkles but through different methods. Injectable relaxers, like BOTOX, treat dynamic wrinkles caused by chronic muscle contractions. Injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, reduce static wrinkles by adding volume. Juvéderm is great for improving mild to moderate wrinkles or adding volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
It may take several days to see the full results of your treatment. Usually, it only takes one session to achieve your aesthetic goal. However, you can schedule another appointment if you would like to intensify your results.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last up to 1 – 2 years. This will vary depending on what filler was used and where it was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the formula.
