What is Juvederm®?
If you have done any research on dermal fillers in the past, odds are you’ve come across the name Juvederm®. This minimally invasive cosmetic treatment is typically used to add volume to areas of the face that have naturally sunken, hollowed, or thinned over time. As we age, our bodies naturally stop producing collagen and hyaluronic acid – two compounds in the body that give our healthy skin its signature bounce and glow. Juvederm® is a hyaluronic acid-based gel that simply replenishes the depleted hyaluronic acid your skin once had to provide you with a youthful complexion and plump skin. Dr. Armstrong and her team may recommend coupling your Juvederm® injections with collagen rebuilding treatments like microneedling and PRP therapy for ultimate results.
What are the Benefits of Juvederm®?

- Fills in laugh lines or parentheses around the mouth
- Adds volume to sunken or hollowed cheeks

What Can I Expect During my Juvederm® Treatment?
Your Juvederm® treatment will be performed by Dr. Jennifer Armstrong in our state-of-the-art facility. Before your Juvederm® injections begin, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Armstrong will begin carefully and strategically make a series of Juvederm® injections into your desired treatment area, typically around the lower two-thirds of the face. The entire treatment process generally takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Juvederm® Treatment?
Because Juvederm® is a minimally invasive injectable treatment, there is no downtime or recovery period required following your appointment. Most patients report returning to work and other regular daily activities immediately following their Juvederm® treatments. Mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness around your treatment areas is normal, and typically subside on their own within a few days of treatment. You’ll be able to see some results of your Juvederm® injections immediately following treatment but will see ultimate results about seven to 14 days later once all swelling subsides. Dr. Armstrong and her team typically recommend coming in for regular Juvederm® treatments every nine to 12 months to maintain your desired look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?
If you’re looking to reduce signs of aging around your lower face or enhance your natural facial features by adding some volume, Juvederm® treatments may be right for you. Ideal candidates for Juvederm® are in general good health and have realistic expectations of their results. If you’re unsure whether Juvederm® is right for you, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with Dr. Armstrong. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
