  • Juvéderm XC  corrects moderate to severe lines on the face, such as parentheses lines and other wrinkles around the mouth and nose. The results usually last for around one year.
  • Juvéderm Ultra XC adds lift to the upper lip, lower lip, or both while reducing the appearance of fine lip lines. The results are typically visible for up to one year.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidates for Juvéderm injectable wrinkle treatments are women and men who have static facial wrinkles and lines they want to improve. When determining whether you want a dermal filler or a wrinkle relaxer, it is good to know the difference between static and dynamic wrinkles. Wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, address dynamic lines, which are caused by repeated facial movements. Static lines, however, develop due to aging, loss of elasticity, and gravity. Dermal fillers, like Juvéderm, are designed for static lines and wrinkles. Juvéderm can also help if you have naturally thin or age-related volume loss in your cheeks or lips. Juvéderm dermal filler treatments at Sessions Plastic Surgery Centre are fantastic if you are looking to refresh the appearance of your face without the recovery time and expense of facial cosmetic surgery (like brow lifts, facelifts, eyelid lifts, or lip implants).

Procedure Technique

On average, Juvéderm injections only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being addressed. Your face will be cleaned, and the 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

Patients usually experience a noticeable improvement immediately after their Juvéderm injections, 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. During your appointment, we will talk about when you should book a touch-up or full injection session at Sessions Plastic Surgery Centre to sustain your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Juvéderm cost?
Costs for Juvéderm injections 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. Sessions or your injector 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 decrease 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?
Relaxers and fillers correct wrinkles but through different methods. Injectable relaxers, like BOTOX, treat dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions. Injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, correct static wrinkles by adding volume. Juvéderm is great for improving mild to moderate wrinkles or to add 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 improve your results.

How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last up to two 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 formula.
