The natural aging process does a number on the human body in a variety of different ways. For example, the aging human body is known to experience a loss of vision, loss of hearing, loss of muscle and/or strength, loss of hair and/or hair color, and much more – all of which are keeping most of us up at night.

Of course, one of the most noticeable and feared signs of aging – especially in today’s society – is skin health and/or skin appearance. As we age, our skin tends to wrinkle, sag, and lose its shape. It’ll look thinner, less plump, more dry, less smooth, and less like the ‘you’ everyone remembers and recognizes.

For some, this change in appearance is just a normal way of life. For others, the change in appearance weighs on their conscience and results in a lesser quality of life – something no one deserves. If you’re unhappy with your skin and are interested in preserving your unique look, you can consider Juvederm.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm treatment is a collection of dermal fillers injected into the skin to give it a more youthful, healthy, and smooth appearance. Unlike BOTOX – which works by relaxing muscles that create wrinkles – Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid, which stimulates collagen production and adds volume to the facial tissue.

Some of the most popular types of Juvederm include:

  • Juvéderm Ultra XC – utilizes Hylacross technology to add volume; most commonly used on the lips; can last up to 12 months
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus XC – utilizes Hylacross technology to add volume; most commonly used on the lips, but more firm than Ultra XC; can last up to 12 months
  • Juvéderm Volbella XC – utilizes Vycross technology; most commonly used to lift and contour the face (cheekbones, chin, , jawline, temples); can last 18-24 months
  • Juvederm Vollure XC – utilizes Vycross technology; most commonly used to fill soft lines and wrinkles near the mouth and lip; can last 18-24 months
  • Juvederm Voluma XC – utilizes Vycross technology; most commonly used to fill nasolabial folds and the lips; can last 18-24 months

A dermal filler is commonly used to address signs of aging in several areas on the face – including forehead lines, brow furrows, temple depressions, crow’s feet, under-eye hollows, nasolabial folds, smoker’s lines, age-related volume loss, lip lines, thin lips, weak jawline, weak chin, marionette lines, loss of facial volume, and so much more.

How Long Will Juvederm Last?

One of the first questions a patient asks when inquiring about Juvederm is, ‘how long does Juvederm last?’ It’s the answer no one wants to hear, but the truth is that it depends on each individual patient. You can expect most Juvederm fillers to last anywhere from six months to one year – and up to two years.

Let’s take a look at some of the most prominent factors that play a role in how long Juvéderm fillers last:

  • Type of Juvederm used
  • Treatment area (injection location)
  • Physical health of the patient
  • Patient’s skin health
  • The technique used by the doctor

After meeting with a healthcare professional that specializes in Juvederm injections, they’ll determine which type of filler is best for you and your skin. They’ll take into account your goals, current medical history, and family medical history, ensuring you receive the results and overall appearance you want.

How to Maximize Results With Juvederm

Considering the nature of the procedure, patients are often wondering how to maximize results with Juvederm. After all, patients are undergoing the procedure to improve their appearance – not make it worse. And while a successful procedure can be life-changing, a failed procedure can be devastating.

Let’s take a look at some of the things patients can do before, during, and after the procedure to maximize results:

  • Before: avoid alcohol, anti-aging topical products, certain supplements, and OTC anti-inflammatories; avoid bleaching, tweezing, waxing, and hair removal cream;
  • During: avoid wearing cosmetics to the procedure
  • After: stay hydrated and drink plenty of water; wear sunscreen and sunglasses when necessary; use proper skincare products; reduce stress and anxiety; eat a well-balanced diet; incorporate retinol; be gentle on your face; don’t over-exercise

At the end of the day, patients that want to maximize Juvederm results should follow the directions, advice, and recommendations handed to them by their doctor. Every patient has their own unique situation that requires unique limitations, restrictions, and precautions, but your doctor will know best.
