Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to smooth away lines and wrinkles on the lower face. The filler is injected into the dermal layers to restore volume and reduce signs of aging. Static wrinkles around the nose and mouth, including nasolabial folds, smile lines, and marionette lines, tend to respond best to this treatment.
All of our physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York® have extensive experience with fillers and injectables, including the Juvederm line. Our physicians performed several trials for the use and development of these fillers and injectables in our clinical research department. We are leaders in the field of cosmetic dermatology and the largest users of fillers and injectables in the world.
How does Juvederm Work?
Juvederm works deep into the dermal layers to restore support lost due to collagen depletion. Collagen is a protein found in the dermal structure that gives the skin its smooth, supple appearance. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to skin laxity and wrinkle formation. By restoring that support, Juvederm effectively reverses some signs of aging to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps the dermal structure to retain moisture and volume. When hyaluronic acid is placed into the dermal structure, it produces smooth, natural skin rejuvenation from the inside out.
Do Juvederm Injections Hurt?
Juvederm is administered using a very fine needle or a blunt-tipped cannula, depending on the treatment area and the amount of filler needed. Most patients find the procedure to be quick and relatively comfortable. If you are concerned about discomfort during treatment, talk to your doctor about the application of a topical numbing cream before your procedure begins.
When Will I See Results?
You will see improvement in your wrinkles immediately following your treatment. There may be some mild swelling or bruising around the injection sites that will interfere with your final result. But once the skin heals fully, which usually only takes a day or two, the full results become apparent and will last for many months.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
You should be able to return to your activities immediately following your Juvederm treatment. Your dermatologist may give you specific aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results. It is not unusual to develop a bruise at the injection site, so plan your treatment accordingly to give your skin time to heal before a major social or professional event. Our doctors also provide laser and topical treatments to minimize bruising after your procedure.

Do Men Receive Juvederm?
Yes. Juvederm and other dermal fillers are a popular treatment among men and we treat male patients routinely at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly 62,000 men received hyaluronic acid fillers in the US in 2018.
Men often have different goals when they come in for dermal fillers. The difference in skin texture and thickness also needs to be taken into account when treating men. Our dermatologists have the expertise and experience to ensure both male and female patients achieve results that look natural while improving the appearance.
Questions and Answers
Q: Is Juvederm Safe?
A: The FDA approved Juvederm in 2006 as a safe and effective treatment for moderate to severe facial lines and creases. In 2018, more than 2.5 million people had treatments using soft tissue fillers, including Juvederm. The filler has a long track record of safety and success in the US.
Q: How Long Do Results Last?
A: You will see immediate improvement after your Juvederm injections. Those results will last from 6 months to 1 year, depending on the treatment area and how quickly your body absorbs the hyaluronic acid. You can maintain your refreshed appearance indefinitely with regularly scheduled treatment sessions.
Q: Do Dermal Fillers Treat All Wrinkles?
A: Dermal fillers work on the lines that form as a result of collagen loss and skin laxity. Known as static wrinkles, those creases are usually found around the nose, mouth, and chin. The filler works by restoring volume lost after collagen levels decline. Dermal fillers are not effective on wrinkles that form as a result of certain facial expressions. Those lines, which commonly occur around the forehead and eyes, respond much better to neuromodulators like Botox.
Q: Are There Any Side Effects?
A: Side effects from dermal fillers like Juvederm are uncommon and temporary if they do occur. Some patients might experience slight redness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites, which typically subsides within a day or two.
Q: Will My Face Look And Feel Unnatural?
A: When treated by a licensed and trained injector who has expertise in facial anatomy, like the board-certified cosmetic dermatologists at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, you can expect natural results that are not obvious to everyone around you. Because Juvederm contains hyaluronic acid, which is found in the body as well, your filler will integrate into your dermal tissue to create subtle improvement. You’ll still look like you, just younger, smoother, and more refreshed.
Q: Is Juvederm Right for Me?
A: Juvederm is typically recommended to our patients that have moderate to severe static lines around their nose and mouth. The filler is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. We encourage you to schedule a consultation in our office to find out if Juvederm is the right choice for you.
