Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a family of dermal fillers that address the loss in facial volume that occurs with age. The product softens and smoothes facial wrinkles in the cheeks, around the mouth, and in the midface. The results of Juvéderm last for 6-12 months, after which you can preserve your look with retreatments.

What areas benefit from Juvéderm treatments?

Juvéderm offers a number of benefits to aging skin that’s lost moisture and elasticity. The injectables can also reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that appear due to sun exposure and other environmental factors. Dr. Rachel R. Kushner Dermatology provides:

Juvéderm XC

This general treatment treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including smile lines around the nose and mouth. Your provider injects Juvederm XC into areas to temporarily add volume, so you look smoother.

Juvéderm Voluma XC

As you age, your cheeks lose volume, and the skin grows lax with age. Juvéderm Voluma XC corrects this midface volume loss to add lift and contour to the cheek area. 


Juvéderm helps correct for the changes in your skin that occurs as the years pass, and lines and creases become more noticeable. You still feel young, and you want your complexion to match. Fillers can help you achieve a youthful look.

How does Juvéderm work?

Juvéderm instantly smooths away the deeper lines, for example, along the sides of your nose and mouth. It provides natural-looking results by restoring your levels of a natural compound known as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is plentiful in your youth, but skin slows production as you age. By restoring hyaluronic acid, you restore a more youthful look in a natural way.

The hyaluronic acid attracts water to the site of wrinkles and fine lines, softening their texture subtly. It also fills in hollow contours.

Do Juvéderm treatments hurt?

Juvéderm treatments do involve a needle, so you will feel a sting at the time of the injection. The formulas contain lidocaine, a numbing agent, to ease sensation during treatment. If you’re concerned about discomfort, talk to your provider about using ice or a topical to numb your skin.

Treatments are quick. You’re in and out of the office in less than an hour and can go back to all of your regular activities right afterward.

When are the results of Juvéderm noticeable?

Results of Juvéderm treatments are noticeable immediately after treatment. The look softens over the course of a few days. You don’t need to schedule downtime following Juvéderm injections.
