The Day of Your Juvéderm Treatment
Our patients love Juvéderm for its ability to create impressive results in a very short amount of time, making it one of our “lunch break” procedures. Most treatments only take between 15 and 30 minutes to complete, but this will depend on the specifics of your treatment area. A member of our aesthetics team will carefully inject the product into the treatment area.
Juvéderm is made up of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, which is something your body makes naturally and helps to replace the volume that can be lost over time.
The hyaluronic acid encourages your skin to retain more moisture and increases volume, while also helping your body to create more collagen and elastin. The result is a rejuvenated appearance, thanks to the correction of lost volume and the facial sagging that can come with it.

Recovery After Dermal Filler Treatments
The best part about your Juvéderm treatment is that it won’t require that you spend any significant amount of time resting or recovering.

These after-effects should fade within a day, leaving you to enjoy your impressive results.

Dermal Fillers vs. Neurotoxins
The main differences are:
How they work
Neurotoxins, like BOTOX, freeze the muscles that cause wrinkles and other lines to form on the face. When these muscles are not used, expression lines in the surrounding areas are relaxed. This is different than the static lines and loss of volume and fullness that dermal fillers plump for a smooth look.
Where they work
Neurotoxins are injected into the upper half of the face, such as around the eyes and the forehead. Dermal fillers are injected into both the upper and lower half of the face, such as around the mouth, lips, cheeks, and eyes.
How long they work
The results of a neurotoxin injection last up to four months, and the effects of a dermal filler last up to twelve. However, both timeframes vary based on what type of filler or neurotoxin is used.
The most popular fillers and neurotoxins we offer are:
- Juvederm: Juvederm’s main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that delivers volume to the injected areas. Juvederm is generally used to restore volume to the cheeks and lips, as well as to smooth out wrinkles and other fine lines in the skin.
- BOTOX and Xeomin: BOTOX is the first neurotoxin to be FDA-approved. It smooths frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. To accomplish their results, BOTOX and Xeomin essentially turn off the nerve signals that tell your facial muscles to move, eliminating the cause of your dynamic wrinkles and preventing future wrinkles.
- Belotero: Belotero uses hyaluronic acid to address lost facial volume for a more youthful appearance. The dermal filler rejuvenates your face by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and plumping hollows.
- Radiesse: Radiesse is a gel filler featuring microspheres made from calcium. This adds volume and encourages moisture retention while triggering your body’s natural collagen production.
- RHA Collection: This collection of dermal fillers features hyaluronic acid to restore lost facial volume, encourage moisture retention, and retain a youthful appearance.
