What is JUVÉDERM®?
The JUVÉDERM® line of dermal fillers is one of the most sought-after non-surgical treatments for lifting, firming, and hydrating the skin, producing a refreshed, youthful appearance. The gel formula contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Due to its biocompatible properties and smooth consistency, JUVÉDERM® can produce exceedingly natural-looking results. Our Seattle-area injectors use JUVÉDERM® to improve the appearance of the face, lips, and hands.

What is JUVÉDERM® Used For?
Aging skin often begins to sag, wrinkle, and lose volume as a result of diminished collagen and elastin production. JUVÉDERM® and other cosmetic injectables can help treat common signs of skin aging, including;
- Fine lines
- Facial folds
- Deep creases
- Diminished volume in the face, lips, or hands
At CosMedic Skincare, our injectors can use JUVÉDERM® to effectively treat a variety of cosmetic skin concerns, rejuvenating your face and hands for a more youthful aesthetic. JUVÉDERM® is often used to add volume to targeted areas of the face with the goal of enhancing contours and creating a balanced, harmonious appearance. When injected into the hands, it can restore volume while improving the look of tendons and veins. Due to its smooth, biocompatible formula, this versatile injectable treatment can also be used to enhance the lips with natural-looking results. JUVÉDERM® is often our injectors’ preferred treatment for non-surgical lip augmentation since it can provide beautiful, long-lasting results that leave the lips looking plumper and more supple.

How Long Does the JUVÉDERM® Treatment Take?
Since a JUVÉDERM® treatment session is typically completed within 30 minutes, many of our patients visit our office during their lunch hour. We also offer a topical numbing cream for patients who wish to maximize their comfort during treatment. When selected, topical numbing usually adds about 15 minutes to the total treatment time. For any patient who wishes to take advantage of this offer, our topical numbing service is complimentary.
What Results Can I Expect After JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
After JUVÉDERM® treatment, our patients typically report that they look more energetic, rested, and youthful. JUVÉDERM® results usually last six to eight months, though some patients enjoy their results for up to one year.
What Does JUVÉDERM® Do?
JUVÉDERM® is designed to temporarily restore lost volume at the injection site, providing you with smoother, more youthful looking skin. In the diagram below, you can see how JUVÉDERM® works to lift the skin and reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds:
Is JUVÉDERM® Treatment Painful?
Most patients report that JUVÉDERM® treatment is well-tolerated. Our team values your comfort, so we offer complimentary topical numbing solutions that can help make the treatment process more pleasant. Additionally, the upgraded XC line of JUVÉDERM® products—which CosMedic Skincare offers to our patients at no extra cost—contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that helps soothe the skin during and after the procedure.
What Are the Common Side Effects of JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
Throughout your treatment, your safety and comfort are our top priorities. Some patients may experience tenderness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site immediately after treatment; however, these effects typically dissipate within a few days. The majority of our patients return to their normal daily activities as soon as they leave our office. In a very small number of patients, side effects may last up to two weeks. Patients who are sensitive or allergic to Lidocaine or Xylocaine should notify our team during the consultation process.
What Can I Do to Reduce the Side Effects of JUVÉDERM® Treatment?
Certain medications and supplements can thin the blood and, therefore, increase both the likelihood and the duration of any side effects. If you regularly take aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oil, you can refrain from taking these medications and supplements one week prior to your appointment to reduce your chances of side effects. Additionally, taking Arnica Montana sublingually after your JUVÉDERM® treatment can abbreviate any side effects you may experience. We do not recommend you discontinue taking blood thinners if your physician has prescribed their use.
What Kind Of Feedback Is Available on JUVÉDERM®?
Allergan, the maker of JUVÉDERM®, provides before-and after photos of patients who have used these treatments to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds. They also provide important safety information about the full line of products on their website. Being informed about the products in the JUVÉDERM® line and the results they can produce can help you decide whether the treatment is right for you.
Our patients also regularly share their experiences with us. You can read reviews from our patients at CosMedic Skincare or view our skin care before and after gallery.
