What is JUVÉDERM?
Correct the effects of aging with the JUVÉDERM family of injectable dermal fillers. From treating lines and wrinkles to creating lips that are full and plump, JUVÉDERM treatments at VIP Cosmetic Surgery in Bluffton, SC provide wonderful, natural-looking results. JUVÉDERM may be performed alone, with multiple formulas, or along with other nonsurgical treatments to achieve your needs and goals. JUVÉDERM dermal fillers are made with synthetic HA (hyaluronic acid) that is designed to increase your natural supply of HA and collagen for supple, healthy skin. Talk to medical director Dr. Kenneth Farr about refreshing your appearance without the time and expense of surgery using the JUVÉDERM collection of injectable dermal fillers.

- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC augments the shape of the cheeks to reverse thinness in the mid-face. The results provide a fuller, youthful contour.
how does juvéderm work?
JUVÉDERM injections take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on which areas are being addressed. Your face will be cleansed, then the injection sites will be marked. To decrease discomfort during the treatment, JUVÉDERM formulas contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Following your treatment, you may continue your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, including exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not touch your face after your JUVÉDERM injections to avoid massaging the filler into unwanted areas.
You should see a noticeable improvement almost immediately after your JUVÉDERM treatment, but you may also have light swelling or bruising in the injected areas for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of JUVÉDERM typically last up to 18 months, depending on the product. Talk to Dr. Farr about when to schedule your next treatment at VIP Cosmetic Surgery to sustain your results.
How much does JUVÉDERM cost?
The price of a JUVÉDERM injection will vary dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your JUVÉDERM treatment, a customized injection plan will be made to match your aesthetic goals and budget. Once this is complete, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.
Are JUVÉDERM injections painful?
Although many patients do not think it's necessary, a numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you're concerned about pain. Following the injection, you may have mild to moderate swelling and bruising that will usually reduce over the next week. You should contact VIP Cosmetic Surgery if you have any lasting discomfort or abnormal side effects following your JUVÉDERM injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and a relaxer?
Both fillers and relaxers address wrinkles throughout the face but in different ways. Injectable relaxers, such as BOTOX®, treat dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements. JUVÉDERM is an injectable wrinkle filler that improves static wrinkles and adds volume. JUVÉDERM is great for improving mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or adding volume to your lips and cheeks.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait 1 – 3 days to view the full improvements from your JUVÉDERM injections. Generally, it takes only one session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you may make a follow-up appointment if you would like to enhance your results or increase volume.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of a JUVÉDERM treatment may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This can vary depending on which filler is used and the injection site(s). The length of your results can also be faster or slower, depending on how fast your body absorbs the product.
