Where is Juvéderm® most frequently used?
Juvéderm® XC and other dermal fillers work on lines, wrinkles, and folds that are a result of lost volume in the face and neck. Juvéderm® is most effective on moderate to severe wrinkles such as:
- Nasolabial folds that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Marionette lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin
- Fine lines above the upper lip and at the corners of the mouth
- Juvéderm® XC can also be used for lip augmentation. For lusher, plumper lips, this product creates a very soft, attractive enhancement.
Can Juvéderm® be used on frown lines?
For wrinkles caused by muscle activity, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, BOTOX® injections work best. Juvéderm® is generally used on areas such as the cheeks, lips and mouth to restore facial contours. After we examine you, we will be able to advise you which injectable product will provide you with the look you want. Sometimes, a combination of dermal fillers and BOTOX® is recommended.
How long will my Juvéderm® results last?
You will see immediate results following your treatment. Typically, your Juvéderm® XC results will become fully visible 2-3 weeks after your treatment. During this amount of time any swelling will have decreased, and you may opt for further injections of Juvéderm® XC. In a clinical study, patients reported looking 5 years younger up to six months after their treatment. For most people, Juvéderm® XC lasts about six to nine months, however, some patients have had it last as long as 18 months. Results have been shown to last up to two years for those that received injections in the cheek area.
