How Long Do Juvederm Fillers Last?

Juvederm is one of the most popular products for dermal fillers. Juvederm includes a full collection of fillers that can be used to treat the cheeks, lips, and other areas of the face. Whether you are looking for fuller lips or to add volume to your cheeks, Juvederm is a great option. If you want to know more about the filler collection or want to schedule an appointment in Newton, please contact our office. 

How Does Juvederm Work?

The active ingredient in Juvederm fillers is hyaluronic acid. You may have seen topical creams that market that they have this ingredient. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that our body naturally creates and can smooth skin. This acid stimulates the production of collagen, another very common keyword in the skincare industry. Collagen is primarily responsible for the creation of new healthy skin cells. When we are young our skin can bounce back from a lot because we produce both hyaluronic acid and collagen in high ammounts. A small scrap or bruise can become nearly invisible in just a few months. And we rarely see kids with wrinkles. But as we age our ability to produce these substances diminishes. You may notice scarring that sticks around much longer or never gets fully healed when you reach your mid to late 20s. And of course, in your young adult life, you might start to notice the other signs of decreased collagen production; wrinkles. Wrinkles & lines are common signs that your body is not producing enough collagen to handle the formation of new healthy skin. Juvederm encourages the production of collagen in specific targeted areas by increasing hyaluronic acid in these spaces. 

When Will I See The Results of Juvederm?

As soon as you receive an injection of Juvederm you might notice some visual changes. The presence of the filler alone is enough to smooth out some of your skin and many Juvederm products are also designed to increase volume in the cheeks or lips as well. So there may be an instant change compared to before you received the injection. However, it’s not over yet. As the filler is in your skin it will encourage the production of collagen which means your full results will tend to appear a few weeks after the treatment. 

How Long Does Juvederm Last?

Results from Juvederm injections vary from patient to patient. Depending on your treatment and what area you have treated you could have different results. That being said, generally speaking, many patients report that their results last for up to a year.
