Rejuvenate Your Face

As we age, our skin gradually loses volume. For those looking for ways to rejuvenate the face without the aid of surgery, there is good news. Temporary dermal fillers can address a range of concerns, including volume loss and deep creases. Juvederm is one of the most popular temporary dermal fillers on the market. When administered properly, it can produce a smooth and natural-looking final result in most patients. Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, an expert in injectable treatments, performs Juvederm injections at his New York office.

What Happens During a Juvederm Injection?

Dr. Rokhsar performs his Juvederm injections at both his Manhattan and Garden City offices. During a procedure, a patient may be asked to use a small ice pack or—if patients request or require it—a topical numbing agent. The injections will then be made. Most patients describe the sensation as not necessarily as painful but rather as a slight pinching sensation. Most patients can resume most normal activities. Because Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based2 dermal filler, a substance normally found in your body, the risk of an allergic reaction or serious side effects is low.

Patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous activity for a few hours after their injections. Results typically last anywhere between 12-18 months but will vary from patient to patient. If you like the results, you can schedule regular touch-up injections in order to maintain those results.

Juvederm FAQ

What is Juvederm made out of?

This temporary dermal filler is a gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that can be used to fill in moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds, as well as enhance lips. Usually, only one treatment is necessary to achieve a patient’s cosmetic goals, although the number of treatments will depend on the individual. Most patients will enjoy the effects for up to one year. Over time the body naturally absorbs the filler. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body that helps hydrate and adds volume to the skin.

What makes Juvederm different from other dermal fillers?

Juvederm is created using a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which often can provide long-lasting results. Cross-linked simply means the hyaluronic acid has gone through the process of becoming a gel form, as opposed to the uncross-linked form of hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in a liquid state. The gel state allows Juvederm to add volume to the skin, creating a smoother complexion ultimately filling in the wrinkles. Individual results will vary and Juvederm cannot address severely lax skin.

How long does Juvederm last in lips?

The longevity of Juvederm in lips can vary from 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the specific formula used. It is also noted that the Juvederm Ultra XC and Vollure XC formulas are specifically designed for lip augmentation and can last up to one year. Maintenance treatments may be necessary after six months to restore the lips’ appearance, and individual results may vary. The duration of Juvederm in lips can depend on factors such as the amount of filler injected, the depth of injection, and individual variations in metabolism.

How long does Juvederm last under eyes?

The duration of Juvederm filler under the eyes varies from patient to patient, but typically lasts between nine months to a full year, with some patients being able to go longer between treatments. Juvederm fillers are made up of different formulas, and their longevity also depends on the type of filler used, the amount injected, and the depth of injection. Vollure XC can last up to 18 months, while Ultra Plus XC can last a year or more. It is recommended that patients come back for assessments six to eight months in to avoid a full relapse. Patients should be aware of possible side effects such as bruising and swelling, which are normal and can last for up to 5-7 days. Once the initial swelling and bruising have subsided, the aesthetic enhancements of the under-eye area can last for 1-2 years. Dr Rokhsar has had many patients with Vollure injections in under eye lasting 2 years or more.

How much does Juvederm cost?

The cost of Juvederm can vary depending on several factors. The cost of Juvederm can vary depending on the type of Juvederm injected, the area being injected, and the amount of filler needed.

Which Juvederm is best for lips?

The two best Juvederm fillers for lips are Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Vollure XC.

Juvederm Ultra XC is specifically designed for lip augmentation. It provides a plumping effect that can last up to a year.

Juvederm Vollure XC, on the other hand, is primarily used for laugh lines and wrinkles around the mouth, while also providing nice volume to the lips. It is formulated to be very soft and smooth, making it an excellent choice for those who want a natural-looking lip enhancement with minimal swelling.

Ultimately, the choice between Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Vollure XC will depend on your specific goals for your lips. If you are primarily looking for lip augmentation, Juvederm Ultra XC may be the better choice, while Juvederm Vollure XC may be more suitable if you are looking to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles while also adding subtle volume to the lips. After discussing your goals with injectables expert Dr. Cameron Rokkhsar, he can help you choose the best Juvederm filler for your needs.

How to reduce swelling after Juvederm lip injections?

If you are experiencing swelling after Juvederm lip injections, there are several things you can do to help reduce the swelling and discomfort. Here are some tips:

  • Use ice packs to reduce swelling. Applying ice packs can help to reduce the swelling even more quickly. Icing for 10 minutes, several times a day, for the next few days can help tremendously.
  • Consider applying or taking Arnica. Arnica is a homeopathic treatment that’s known to reduce bruising and swelling.
  • Avoid alcohol for at least 24-48 hours after your lip filler treatment because it works as a blood thinner.
  • Avoid processed foods or fast foods, excess salt, most herbal teas and supplements, spicy foods, and blood thinning medications, including aspirin and ibuprofen, smoking, and smoke exposure.
  • Dr Rokhsar can give you a single dose of prednisone the decrease the swelling.

Remember that swelling after lip injections is normal and can last for a few days.

Which is better: Restylane or Juvederm?

The answer to the question of which is better, Restylane or Juvederm, depends on individual preferences and goals. Both fillers are popular dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid that can help smooth wrinkles, add volume, and enhance facial features. However, there are differences between the two products.

One of the biggest differences between Restylane and Juvederm is their texture. Restylane is granular and more cohesive while Juvederm has a smoother texture. These texture differences give both fillers different strengths. The smoothness of Juvederm makes it better at addressing deeper lines and wrinkles in tight facial areas, while Restylane’s cohesiveness makes it suitable for deeper injection and lifting sagging skin. Restylane gives more subtle results while juvederm gives more dramatic results.

In terms of cost, Juvederm tends to be a little more expensive while Restylane may be slightly cheaper. The cost also depends on the area being injected. Neither filler is covered by insurance.
