Am I A Good Candidate for juvéderm?

The best candidates for JUVÉDERM injectable wrinkle treatments are men or women who have lines and wrinkles on their face that they want to fix. It can also help if you have naturally thin or age-related volume loss in your lips or cheeks. JUVÉDERM wrinkle filler injections at Mesbahi Plastic Surgery are great if you are looking to rejuvenate your appearance without the expense and recovery of plastic surgery (like brow lifts, eyelid lifts, facelifts, or lip implants).

How Do juvéderm treatments Work?

JUVÉDERM treatments typically take about 15 – 30 minutes to complete, depending on which areas are being corrected. Your face will be cleansed, then the injection spots will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort during the process, JUVÉDERM dermal fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Following your procedure, you can resume your daily routine; however, strenuous activity, like exercise, should be avoided for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face after your JUVÉDERM injections to prevent moving the gel into unintended areas.

What Should I Expect After JUVÉDERM Treatments?

You typically see a visible improvement immediately after your JUVÉDERM procedure, but you may also develop mild swelling or bruising in the injected areas of the face for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of JUVÉDERM injections typically last as long as one year, depending on the formula (VOLUMA can last up to two years). Some patients notice that their improvements last longer than 12 months after 2 – 3 years of treatments. Talk to Dr. Mesbahi about how soon to book your next session at Mesbahi Plastic Surgery to maintain your results.


How much does JUVÉDERM cost?
Costs for Juvéderm will be dependent on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. Before your injection treatment, a customized treatment plan will be developed to fit your aesthetic goals. After this, your injector can estimate costs and discuss payment options.

Are JUVÉDERM injections painful?
While most patients do not find it needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment area before injection if you are concerned about pain. After the injection, you might experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling that will usually reduce over the next week depending on the treatment area. You should contact Mesbahi Plastic Surgery if you experience any severe pain or abnormal side effects following your injection.

What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Injectable fillers and relaxers address facial wrinkles, but with different approaches. Injectable relaxers, like BOTOX, work to correct dynamic wrinkles caused by frequent muscle movements. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that improves static wrinkles by adding volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your cheeks and lips.

What results can I expect?
It may take 1 – 3 days to view the full results of your Juvéderm injections. Generally, it only takes one treatment appointment to reach your desired outcome. However, you may make a second appointment if you would like to see more improvement or volume.

How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm treatment may last up to two years. This can vary based on the selected filler and the injection site(s). The longevity of results will be faster or slower depending on how fast your body breaks down the formula.

Can I combine JUVÉDERM with other cosmetic treatments?

Yes, JUVÉDERM can often be combined with other treatments to achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. During your consultation, we will evaluate your aesthetic goals and determine which complementary treatments are best suited for you.
