Juvéderm® is the most-advanced form of hyaluronic acid (a natural substance in the human body) used as a dermal filler to reduce wrinkles and folds by adding volume to the skin. This injectable treatment consists of a smooth gel that can rejuvenate signs of age with beautiful, natural-looking results. The effects of a Juvederm® injection typically last between 6 and 12 months and can be maintained through follow-up treatments at The Personal Enhancement Center.
What Are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® can be an excellent way for both women and men to immediately enhance their facial appearance. The many benefits offered by JUVÉDERM® include:
- Reduced signs of age such as fine lines and wrinkles in a variety of facial areas
- Enhanced volume, fullness, and contour to specific facial features

- No surgery or general anesthesia is required
- Most patients require no downtime following treatment

JUVÉDERM® includes a large number of different products that offer patients a full selection of options designed for their particular cosmetic enhancement goals. Some of the products in JUVÉDERM®’s signature line of products include:
Juvéderm® Ultra is a hyaluronic acid gel implant. Hyaluronic acid is a natural complex sugar that improves skin elasticity and can create a smoother, more supple appearance. Juvéderm® Ultra can also create lift and add volume to wrinkles and folds in the treated area.
Results can last up to one year and is most effective on fine lines and wrinkles.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
Similar to Juvéderm® Ultra, Juvederm® Ultra Plus also uses hyaluronic acid to increase skin elasticity and enhance your appearance. The results can also last up to one year. Our experienced injectable provider typically uses Juvéderm® Ultra Plus to address deeper furrows and wrinkles, as well as nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm® XC is designed to increase patient comfort during treatment. This hyaluronic acid-based gel can help patients smooth out wrinkles and fine lines while helping them stay comfortable through the inclusion of the anesthetic Lidocaine. With this increased attention to patient comfort, our patients can typically return to their normal daily routines immediately.
Juvéderm® Plus XC
Juvéderm® Plus XC combines the best of Juvederm® Ultra Plus and Juvederm® XC. We will use this form of the popular dermal filler Juvéderm® to address deeper lines and wrinkles, while also improving overall patient comfort with the inclusion of Lidocaine to reduce pain.
What Does the JUVÉDERM® Procedure Involve?® procedures are often relatively quick appointments right here at our practice. Our experienced injector will administer the JUVÉDERM® solution precisely into the areas that are targeted for rejuvenation. Many JUVÉDERM® products include a component called lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that can help minimize discomfort during the treatment process. Additionally, we can apply a topical numbing solution to the skin to further reduce discomfort while injections are performed. Depending on each patient’s customized treatment plan and the number of injections necessary to achieve individual goals, the procedure can usually be completed in about 30 minutes to 1 hour. One of the many benefits of JUVÉDERM® is that a recovery period is typically not necessary. Most patients feel comfortable resuming their normal daily routines right after treatment. Some redness, swelling, and bruising may be present following the injections; however, these effects should dissipate over the course of a few days.
How Long Do the Results of JUVÉDERM® Last?® will depend on the specific product utilized and other factors. Products such as JUVÉDERM® XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus are known to produce effects that can last up to a full year, while others may last up to six months, a year, or even much longer. Once you have decided upon the JUVÉDERM® product or products that will be most beneficial to your needs, our team can talk more with you about how long the results may last. It is important to note that virtually all JUVÉDERM® products are known to produce very long-lasting outcomes, and occasional follow-up injections can help many patients keep the results going for extended periods.
