Juvederm Vollure results tend to last up to 18 months, meaning you will not need a retouch treatment until its effects subside. Some patients, however, prefer to take touch up treatments once in every 12 months in order to maintain the best possible results.

How Are Juvederm Injections Performed?

As a first step you will need to schedule a one on one consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg. This is a good opportunity to raise all your treatment-related questions and concerns, discuss the issues with the areas of treatment and different procedural options with a board-certified doctor. Dr. Schwarzburg will gladly guide you through the optimal treatment plan developed specifically for you, based on your unique case, medical history, skin type, goals, and concerns. Afterwards you will be able to get your Juvederm injections either immediately after the consultation or will schedule them for another day and time that will work for both you and Dr. Schwarzburg.

It is Dr. Schwarzburg’s recommendation to two Tylenols prior to the treatment in order to decrease the level of discomfort during the procedure. Another instruction you will need to follow is avoiding blood thinners that can potentially cause excess bleeding and bruising. A topical lidocaine based numbing cream may be applied to the already sanitized area of treatment 15 – 20 minutes before the procedure. This is another step necessary to reduce any possible discomfort. Once the numbing cream is removed the area will be sanitized once again in order to avoid all the possible infections.

The procedure can typically take for up to 30 minutes depending on the number of syringes that need to be injected. The injections themselves are relatively quick and painless. After administering the injections, Dr. Schwarzburg will provide you with an ice pack which you should apply to the treatment area for the rest of the day. Be careful not to rub or touch the skin for 3 – 5 days, also stay away from heat, extreme sun exposure, and exercise; these are preventive measures to mitigate the possibility of excessive swelling. In case the injection site has bruised, you will need to apply a warm compress and arnica gel until the bruising subsides.

Your treatment will be performed by the technique chosen by Dr. Schwarzburg based on your specific needs. The injections usually take 20 – 30 minutes giving immediate results. If there is any bruising and swelling you might not be able to see the results right away. In such cases it is advised to apply an ice pack to the area of treatment for the rest of the first day, and a warm compress on the following days until the mentioned side effects subside.

Do Juvederm Injections Hurt?

Most of the patients treated with Juvederm have reported not to experience a lot of pain during the injections. Based on your pain tolerance level  the procedure may bring forth some sensations of discomfort and pain.

Another measure to make the overall process even more tolerable for you is taking two Tylenols prior to the treatment.

Can I See the Juvederm Results Immediately after the Procedure?

Even in the event of bruising and swelling, the results will still be – obscurely, though. In about two weeks after the injection you will be able to fully enjoy the final results of the procedure. To quicken the body’s healing process you can apply an ice pack to the treated area on the day of the procedure and a warm compress on the following days until the side effects go away. If you are planning your Juvederm results for a special event,  Dr. Schwarzburg advises taking the treatment 2 – 4 weeks before the event to be on the safe side should there be any unpredicted bruising or swelling.

How Long Will the Juvederm Results Take to Show?

Some cases are accompanied by such side effects as bruising and swelling which make it harder to see the final results.

The Liquid Face Lift as a Treatment for Volume Loss Caused by Aging

Aging comes with a significant decrease in the amount hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin naturally present in our bodies. These three grant our skin the youthfulness we long for. When our bodies start losing collagen and hyaluronic acid, the face gives it away by losing volume which is especially noticeable under the eyes and in the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid fillers are designed to replace the lost volume and to fill in the wrinkles, lines, and folds that come with age. This process is also called a liquid face lift as it rejuvenates and brings youthfulness back to the skin without the involvement of any invasive methods, such as surgery.

Alcohol and cigarettes are also likely to increase bruising if used within two weeks before the treatment. In case bruising has occurred, a warm compress and arnica gel will be of great help in the healing process.

In fact, Juvederm injections come with little to no recovery time. There are some measures of precaution though that one should follow after the injections. Make sure to avoid exercising and heat for 2 to 3 days to be on the safe side and reduce possible bruising and swelling. Applying an ice pack to the treated area on the day of the treatment and a warm compress on the following days can also be helpful.

Juvederm injections imply the possibility of such side effects as bruising, discoloration, tyndall effect, irritation, lumps or bumps, pruritus, and tenderness. All of the mentioned side effects can be reduced and eliminated with correct treatment measures. However, as they say it is better to reduce the risk than to correct the consequences. That being said, make sure to have your treatment administered by a board certified and well-experienced physician or plastic surgeon such as Dr. Schwarzburg.

It’s density and viscosity are high, hence it can achieve dramatic eversion and height increase for both the upper and lower lips. If Juvederm Voluma is injected,  the lips will feel harder and more rubbery to the touch then in case of other lip fillers. Voluma is most commonly applied in the cheek area, however it can also be used for the lips, if it fits your unique needs.

How Many Juvederm Syringes Are Required for Lip Injections?

To correctly decide the number of Juvederm syringes required  for a lip enhancement, you will need to take your desired end result as well as the type of Juvederm filler as a baseline.

All Juvederm fillers can be used for lip enhancements. However, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Ultra, and Juvederm Ultra Plus are mostly used for the lips. The choice is largely conditioned by the end result you seek to achieve. Taking that into consideration, Dr. Schwarzburg will choose the best fitting dermal filler for you.

What Lip Filler Should I Select?

You need to choose your lip filler based on the end result you would like to achieve. If you are looking for a fuller look, then you could select Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, or Juvederm Vollure.

The best way to choose a lip filler is to allow a well-educated and experienced doctor to do it for you; this will make sure you bypass any undesirable results.

Juvederm Lip Fillers

Լip augmentations have become a highly popular procedure within the last decades not only among celebrities and social media influencers but also the general public. There are various lip enhancement techniques, each of which is specifically developed to achieve a certain type of goal. Some people want to experience radical changes in their appearance, e.g. look like Kylie Jenner, while others choose to add just a little bit of volume for a more subtle result.

Juvederm is one of the most popular fillers for lip augmentations as it is based on hyaluronic acid and is versatile. It is designed to add volume and create fuller lips. However, Juvederm can be injected not only into the lips but also around the lip area to fill in the fine lines and wrinkles, also known as smoker’s lines and perioral lines as they are mainly caused by smoking, aging, and sun damage. Juvederm Volbella is particularly developed to treat these lines; apart from line elimination, Juvederm Volbella is also used to add a little volume to the area.

Even full and plump lips become smaller with age as a result of collagen and moisture deficit. Juvederm fillers help to replace the lost volume and bring back former youthfulness and hydration to the lips or even more.

Juvederm Fillers for the Under Eye Area (Tear Troughs)

Loss of volume under the eyes and loss of volume in the cheeks nearly always go hand in hand. With age we tend to face a deficit of collagen and adipose tissue that makes us appear older. The under eye Juvederm filler is meant to replace the lost volume, rejuvenate and refresh the skin and the overall face. It happens so that the under eye hollows leave an impression of dark circles or discoloration under the eyes;  in reality, though, all of that is just a shadow cast by loss of volume in the tear trough. Juvederm Volbella works great at treating tear troughs, filling in their hollowness and refreshing the overall appearance of the face.

Juvederm Voluma for Chin Enhancement

Dermal fillers are mostly known for lip enhancements, under eye, and cheek injections. These are not the only areas that can be treated by dermal fillers. Another area that is often neglected but can largely benefit from a filler treatment is the chin. It goes hand in hand with the jaw and can also be treated by Juvederm Voluma. Juvederm Voluma is used to make the chin more prominent and give it a more projected profile view at the same time evening out any present asymmetry in the face. Most people tend to choose this option as it is minimally invasive and does not imply the complications that come with surgical implants. Insertion of surgical implants is an incredibly invasive method and involves additional risks and side effects, apart from the long recovery time. For some cases Dr. Schwarzburg decides to administer CoolSculpting or Kybella treatments before chin filler injections, meant to eliminate the fat around the chin and jawline and to achieve a more defined and prominent shape of the chin.

Juvederm Voluma for Jaw Contouring

Lack of jawline definition can be caused by genetics, bone structure, fat, or loose skin. In fact, many people face this issue. Juvederm Voluma is ideal for addressing the mentioned issue, lifting the jowls and adding some volume to the area of injection resulting in a lifted and tightened effect, the end result being a well defined jawline. Once injected in the jawline area, Juvederm creates a more chiseled and defined look, especially from a side profile. Combining this treatment with Botox injections or other neurotoxins such as Dysport in the masseters is not uncommon for Dr. Schwarzburg; it is meant to slim down the jaw area. He also delivers Botox injections in the neck bands to address and prevent the formation of wrinkles and lines around the neck.

Dr. Schwarzburg recommends taking Kybella or CoolSculpting treatment for the jaw area before Juvederm Ultra injections if a significant amount of fat is present around the chin and jawline. Such an order will ensure better and more visible results. Another procedure that can be helpful for shaping the jawline is PDO thread lift. The latter is a non surgical face lift treatment designed to lift loose and sagging skin and tighten the treatment area.

Cheek Augmentation with Juvederm Voluma

With age we tend to lose collagen, elastin, and fat in our faces. As a result, fat and tissue volume in our cheeks and other areas of the face decrease, resulting in deflation, flatter facial features, and giving away age, especially if the volume is lost in the area under the eyes. FDA has approved Juvederm Voluma as a filler that treats hollowness in the cheeks and restores the lost collagen, volumizing the treatment area. The effect of Juvederm Voluma remains for up to 12 months, which makes it a great product for adding volume to the hollow parts of the face.

What Is the Price of Juvederm for Lip Augmentation?

The cost of lip injections by Juvederm filler depends on the amount of filler needed, the particular type of Juvederm filler, the geographical location of the clinic where you will get your injections, as well as the qualifications and expertise level of the injector. Depending on the change in the appearance you want to achieve and the complexity of your anatomy, the cost of a single Juvederm Ultra syringe injected by a board certified plastic surgeon in New York or Los Angeles is likely to be anywhere from $800 to $1500. Some medical centers make discounts for those patients who decide to purchase more than a syringe, which is not rare when lip fillers are paired with other procedures.

Which One Is Better: Juvederm or Restylane?

Each of the mentioned fillers perfectly carries out their specific functions; it is quite difficult to make a general statement on which one is better. The selection should be made based on the specific case and the desired results of the patient. Both Juvederm and Restylane are based on hyaluronic acid and are approved by the FDA. They are developed to replace lost volume and fill in lines and wrinkles in the face, neck, and hands. After a thorough analysis of your case and skin type Dr. Schwarzburg will be able to determine which filler will be the best for you.

Juvederm VS Restylane

Both Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers that are approved by the FDA to add volume to certain areas of the face and body. The two mentioned products are quite similar; they mainly differ by their molecule size, chemical composition, thickness and longevity of results. Juvederm is likely to cause more swelling in comparison to Restylane, though it also offers more volume. Although, this depends on the way the patient’s body responds to each of these fillers. When selecting a filler for you, Dr. Schwarzburg will take into consideration your particular needs, the thickness of your skin, its anatomical structure, and your desired results.

Combination of Dermal Fillers, Laser Treatments and Skin Care for Best Results

Based on the type of your skin type and the original state of it, some combination treatments may serve the best for you. Each treatment carries out a certain function and can be administered alone or in combination with other treatments. Dr. Schwarzburg commonly  combines different procedures to get the most optimal results, e.g. microneedling and laser treatments (such as Fraxel) for skin tightening, Botox for fine line and wrinkle reduction and prevention by means of muscle relaxation, and dermal fillers to restore volume by replacing lost collagen and hyaluronic acid.

Is It Allowed to Combine Juvederm with Other Cosmetic Procedures?

It is possible to combine Juvederm with other cosmetic procedures, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, e.g. Restylane, Radiesse, Belotero, Sculptra, Revanesse, Teosyal and neurotoxins, like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeaveau, as well as skin tightening treatments, like Fraxel laser and Secret RF Microneedling. Juvederm can also be paired with other skin lifting procedures, such as PDO thread lift. 

Juvederm is commonly complemented with Botox and other neurotoxins such as Dysport in order to prevent and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles in the area of treatment and relax other muscles around the jaw and neck. 

The effect of Juvederm can be further enhanced by other fillers. It is quite common to inject Restylane Silk filler under the eyes, Juvederm Voluma in the cheeks, Juvederm Ultra in the smile lines and Radiesse for jawline definition.

Sometimes even liquid facelift with Juvederm Voluma and other fillers does not fully address the issue of sagging skin. For such cases the next logical step is going for a PDO thread lift  meant to help with loose skin around the jowls and jawline.

In certain cases before getting Juvederm Voluma injections in the chin area for better definition it is necessary to get rid of excess fat. CoolSculpting and Kybella are procedures that can be of help here; the first one is a non-invasive cryolipolysis treatment and the second one is a synthetic version of fat dissolving deoxycholic acid. Both of them can be used to reduce the stubborn fat around the chin area.

If you have an intention to get a skin tightening and acne scar removal treatment, you may need to undergo it before having your fillers injected in order to avoid filler migration. The non-ablative fractional laser treatments such as Fraxel Dual, or Secret RF microneedling are among the most popular ones. The latter is a fractional microneedling treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy to coagulate the dermal-subdermal layers in order to stimulate collagen production.

Juvederm for Nasolabial Folds

Another area on the face that needs to be addressed and yet is overlooked are nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines. These folds go down the nose corner to the corners of the mouth and give an older appearance. In fact, this is one of the first areas to show volume loss in the face. Juvederm fillers are a widely accepted choice to fill in these lines and are particularly common for the mentioned area. The results achieved by Juvederm Vollure can last for up to 18 months. This is a great option to look younger by means of eliminating or at least reducing the appearance of smile lines.

Am I A Good Candidate for Juvederm Injections?

If you are in overall good health, then most likely you are a good candidate for Juvederm dermal fillers. If you are looking for ways to eliminate deep lines or hollowness in your face then Juvederm can be a worthy solution for you. Even if all you want is a little bit of volume in your lips or evened out chin or jawline Juvederm can still be a good option for you.

Does Smoking Have a Negative Effect on Juvederm Injections?

Can Juvederm and Restylane Be Combined?

Both Juvederm and Restylane are dermal fillers with the main active component being hyaluronic acid. They basically serve the same general purpose.

Sometimes one brand fits better for a certain purpose depending on the patient’s desired results and facial features. The efficiency of such combinations is different from case to case.

What Is the Cost of Juvederm Injections?

You can anticipate a  higher price if the injector is a board certified doctor than with a nurse or aesthetician at a medical spa.

How to Metabolize Juvederm Faster

The fastest way to get rid of a Juvederm filler without complications is getting a hyaluronidase injection. Of course, you could also try massaging the area of treatment after the injection and expose yourself to the sun which will thin your skin and likely make the filler fade quicker. However, the best way to dissolve the filler is through a hyaluronidase injection.

Is It Possible to Dissolve Juvederm if the Results Are Not Satisfying?

Hyaluronidase injections can dissolve all hyaluronic acid based fillers. Being hyaluronic acid based Juvederm is not an exception. All the Juvederm fillers can be momentarily dissolved by means of Hyaluronidase injections. You may need one  or more sessions for dissolving the filler depending on the amount of the injected product. This is the reason it is recommended to start with little filler and add to that amount gradually if necessary, rather than having 2 or 3 syringes injected at once.
