Juvéderm® Injectable Filler Treatments
Juvéderm® is one of the most popular products used in the field of aesthetic medicine today. It is an injectable gel facial filler that is able to give patients the benefits of improved skin and anti-aging effects. This FDA and Health Canada approved “next-generation” dermal filler, based on hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. A single treatment can provide a subtle to dramatic improvement of your appearance, without surgery.
Various applications of Juvéderm® fillers will:
– Enhance your facial contours
– Erases wrinkles
– Replaces lost volume
– Modifies the size and shape of your features.
– For facial contouring to reshape your original features, whether you’re younger or older, Juvéderm® simply adds more HA to your skin to add the volume necessary to make a positive change.
What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® injectable fillers are smooth-consistency gels made of natural hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Laliberte will inject a dermal filler gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases, restore volume in your cheeks and chin, enhance your lips and cheeks or contour your jawline. Dermal fillers provide a smooth, natural look and feel, so everyone will notice but no one will know.
Juvéderm® typically provides 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). It is also primarily used for lip augmentation.
Juvéderm® products also contain the local anesthetic lidocaine for a more comfortable injection as this numbs the treatment area within seconds.
Juvéderm® replicates hyaluronic acid, and by being injected into the skin, temporarily restores the skin’s support structure and smooths out wrinkles.
Over time, our skin thins and slackens, as facial fullness and skin elasticity are gradually lost. Deep skin depressions may begin to appear in the form of smile lines that run vertically from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth. These lines can change our expressions and may make us appear to look sad or older.
Juvéderm® Volift® is specially designed using Vycross® technology to soften and gently restore natural-looking fullness to smile lines. Patients instantly see results after just one treatment, with a noticeable softening of smile lines. With the addition of pain-reducing lidocaine, you will also enjoy greater comfort during the treatment.

Full lips with a defined border are a feature of youthful attractiveness. As we age, natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that give skin structure and fullness gradually decrease. This results in our lips and the surrounding area being vulnerable to loss of fullness.
Juvéderm® Volbella® is specially designed using Vycross® technology to gently restore fullness and shape to your lips. Whether your lips were naturally thin or full, Juvéderm® Volbella® can be used to enhance lip shape or restore lost fullness. With the addition of pain-reducing lidocaine, you will enjoy greater comfort during the treatment.

When it comes to maintaining a youthful look, it’s not just about lines and wrinkles. Smooth contours, full cheeks and a straight jawline typically define a youthful face. The overall shape and contour of the face, however, changes with age. The skin becomes thinner and the effects of gravity become apparent.
Juvéderm® Voluma® is specially designed using Vycross® technology to restore lost fullness and enhance the cheeks and chin for a more youthful look. Using hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar found in your body, Juvéderm® Voluma® delivers a smooth, natural lift. With the addition of pain-reducing lidocaine, you will also enjoy greater comfort during the treatment.

Structural changes to the lower face occur as we age as a result of bone loss and shifting/ shrinking of the fat pads. These changes appear as hollowed, sunken areas, retraction of the jawline and sagging or jowls.
Juvéderm® Volux™ is specially designed using Vycross® technology to restore and create volume in the chin and jawline. It is the most elastic and cohesive product in the Vycross range. Juvéderm® Volux™ creates a lifting effect to address sagging and volume loss through the lower face. Results can last from 18-24 months.
What Can I Expect From My Juvéderm® Injectable Filler Treatment?
Juvéderm® Injectable Filler Treatments at Radiance Plastic Surgery
At your consultation, you will meet with one of our expert nurse injectors who will examine your facial structure and skin type. Our nurse injector will also talk to you about your cosmetic goals and expectations of your treatment. This can take anywhere from 10 – 30 minutes depending on the areas you are looking to treat and the extent of your concerns. Every assessment is personalized to fit your needs and goals
A topical numbing cream may be applied for a local anesthetic in order to increase your comfort, however, this isn’t always necessary. Juvéderm® already has an ingredient in it designed to help you: lidocaine. Lidocaine provides temporary numbing of the treated area at the time of your injection, making any additional anesthesia unnecessary.
The areas to be treated will be marked on you before a series of Juvéderm® injections are made to the desired areas. A sterile syringe and fine needle that has been pre-packaged by the manufacturer is used. One or more syringes can be administered in a single treatment. Once injected, your injector may massage the areas lightly to adjust the placement of the product.
If there are any Juvéderm® results that you do not like, we will be able to fix them during your follow-up, two weeks after your initial treatment. By that time, any initial swelling will be gone, making it easier to assess and deal with irregular contours that require adjusting.
During a Juvéderm® Injectable Filler Treatment
Juvéderm® is a smooth gel injected with thin needles and so should be comfortable. To minimize discomfort our injectors may apply a numbing cream to the areas to be treated before injection.
Our injectors will inject Juvéderm® into the areas and wrinkles the patient has decided to address. Our injectors may also massage the area during the treatment as they sculpt the product to improve the appearance and texture.
The treatment process takes at least 30-45 minutes.
Juvéderm® Injectable Filler Treatment Results
The results are noticeable after treatment, and there’s minimal recovery or downtime. You may experience a small amount of swelling and/or bruising for a few days. Many individuals go back to work immediately after having their filler procedure.
It is not entirely uncommon for patients to experience mild irregularities, often related to swelling. This usually resolves by itself and is nothing to be alarmed about. Hyaluronic acid fillers attract water. So you may have extra fullness in the areas injected, which should resolve within 10-14 days when the results soften, and further enhancements become visible.
If you do experience some bruising, it can almost always be concealed with makeup. Depending on the area injected and the facial filler used, results can last between 12 to 18 months.
For the first 24 hours after treatment, patients should avoid touching or massaging the treated area, and avoid strenuous exercise. Bruising can be hidden with concealer.
The first two weeks after treatment, patients are advised to avoid unnecessary sun, heat and cold exposure, and any products that contain alcohol. It is important for patients to wear sunscreen.

Juvéderm® Lip Filler
As we age, our lips naturally begin to lose the elasticity and plumpness that we associate with youth. Juvéderm® is one of the most popular methods used by medical professionals to restore lips to a youthful, fuller appearance. After lips have begun to lose their shape, Juvéderm® is able to help restore plumpness and elasticity through the properties of its main component, hyaluronic acid.
Once it has been injected, the hyaluronic acid integrates with natural tissues and enhances the fat content of a patient’s lips. Regular follow-up injections allow you to maintain plumper lips and reduce the appearance of aging.
Juvéderm® Filler For Cheeks
Our cheeks, very much like the rest of us, are affected by age. As we get older, our skin begins to lose the elastin, collagen, natural fats and the ability to retain moisture that is responsible for smooth, full and firm skin. Our cheeks can succumb to these problems faster than the rest of us. This is problematic because the cheeks are such a prominent part of our faces so damage to them greatly effects the general appearance of our face.
Juvéderm® works to make cheeks look younger by giving back what time and nature have taken away. The injectable Juvéderm® Filler integrates with the cheek’s skin tissue on a cellular basis to reverse the damage and promote a healthier, more youthful look.
The two major characteristics of aging cheeks — gauntness and wrinkling — can be resolved by Juvéderm®. Patients that undergo treatments with the filler soon begin to see volume added to the skin of the cheeks, a plumping up of the skin and a pleasant reduction to a hollow or gaunt appearance. Juvéderm® patients leave their treatment with cheeks that have been restored to their proper look.
Juvéderm® Filler For Jawlines
As we age, the bone volume in our jaw and chin begins to decrease. We lose definition, structure, and support over time, with genetics playing a role. Some people naturally have a weaker jawline or chin. With Juvéderm® Volux we now have the ability to achieve incredible results in the lower face.
Volux is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has been specifically designed for use in the chin and jawline. It can be used to improve facial harmony by strengthening the jawline and chin, softening jowls, improving double chins, giving a stronger and more defined jawline.
Genetically, some people have a small or weak jawbone or chin, whereas other lose volume through the aging process. As we age, we lose bone in our skull – our cheeks deflate, meaning that facial fat drops downwards with gravity. The thick hyaluronic gel in Juvéderm® Volux adds volume, structure, and support in the jawline and chin to create a more defined, chiseled, and sculpted jawline within a matter of minutes.

How Long Do Juvéderm® Injectable Fillers Last?
Juvéderm® injectable filler treatments can last for different periods in different patients, depending on some number of factors.
One of the main factors that determine how long Juvéderm® filler injections last is the type of product used. Juvéderm® comes in several different formulations for use in different parts of the face. Some are more flexible and lighter for use in and around the mouth like Vobella. Others are more robust and have “lifting” characteristics such as Voluma. Depending on the specific type of filler used the duration will change based on how the product was made. Generally, more robust fillers like Voluma are FDA approved to last up to 2 years. While Juvéderm® Ultra is approved to last up to 1 year.
Another factor that determines how long your Juvéderm® filler will last is the natural makeup of each individual person. We all have different metabolisms and our bodies break things down at different rates. Each individual person will have their own experience with a filler like Juvéderm®.
Juvéderm facial fillers include the anaesthetic lidocaine, which can help reduce any discomfort you may feel during treatment.[/cq_vc_accordion_item][cq_vc_accordion_item accordiontitle=”How long is the Recovery Time After a Juvéderm treatment?”]You may experience swelling or redness after treatment.
