Frequently Asked Questions
What is the treatment experience like?
A licensed medical professional will take your medical history and provide a facial analysis. Be prepared to discuss your aesthetic areas of concern. This is not a surgical treatment. Actual treatment with JUVÉDERM® injectable gels can take 15 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on which area of your face is being treated.
Does it hurt?
JUVÉDERM® injectable gels labeled with “XC” contain pain-reducing lidocaine to help manage pain or discomfort during the injection. You may also ask for a topical numbing cream or ice to help further minimize discomfort.
What is hyaluronic acid?
The JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance in the skin that delivers nutrients, helps the skin retain moisture and softness, and adds volume. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers is made from a modified form of HA.
When will I see results?
You will see results immediately/instantly.
How long do the results last?
Results may last one to two years, with optimal correction and depending on the formula used.
Are there any reasons I should not receive injectable JUVÉDERM® Gel Fillers?
Do not receive JUVÉDERM® injectable gel fillers if you have a history of severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), or if you are allergic to lidocaine or the proteins (Gram-positive bacterial proteins) used to make hyaluronic acid (HA) in JUVÉDERM® injectable gel fillers.
What are possible side effects?
The most commonly reported side effects with JUVÉDERM® injectable gels included injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching. For a complete list of possible side effects go to www.juvederm.com and talk to one of our licensed medical professionals.
What is the average treatment cost?
Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the licensed medical professional who is administering your treatment. Be wary of discount products or “cheap” JUVÉDERM® collection —if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
How can I save on treatments?
