Dermal fillers are made of bio-compatible materials that can enhance or fill areas of the face to improve the appearance of the face and lips. Common dermal filler brands include; Restylane, Juvederm / Restylane, and Radiesse. Each brand and products within the brands are indicated for different areas of the face to achieve the best results.
Juvederm / Restylane is part of a line of dermal fillers produced with hyaluronic acid to target and restore signs of facial aging, including loss of volume.
Juvederm / Restylane works by replenishing the body’s own stores of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound. As we age, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases, leading to a gradual loss of volume and visible signs of skin aging.
Juvederm / Restylane fillers restore hyaluronic acid and work in conjunction with your body’s own collagen reserves to reduce signs of aging and restore volume to cheeks, midface, and other areas of the body.
The length of time that results following treatment with Juvederm / Restylane last varies based on the injection site, the type of Juvederm / Restylane used, and how quickly the compound is metabolized by the body.
On average, patients can expect Juvederm / Restylane treatment results to last between six to twenty-four months, with Juvederm / Restylane Voluma XC producing longer lasting effects than Juvederm / Restylane Vollure XC on average.
Juvederm / Restylane is a well tolerated, non-allergenic dermal filler with a high safety profile.
Juvederm / Restylane is an excellent treatment option for patients seeking to address signs of skin aging, including lines, folds, wrinkles, and loss of volume.
Juvederm / Restylane is intended for patients in good physical and emotional health, and is not recommended for mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Treatment with Juvederm / Restylane is completely reversible in the event that you are not satisfied with your results.
Because Juvederm / Restylane injections restore volume and signs of aging with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, they are easily reversed with an enzyme known as hyaluronidase.
Although adverse reactions to Juvederm / Restylane are rare, an injection of hyaluronidase following treatment can address unwanted side effects including infection, excessive swelling, and persistent bumps surrounding the injection site.
Hyaluronidase injection following Juvederm / Restylane treatment typically resolves adverse reactions and side effect within twenty-four hours.
Juvederm / Restylane treatment cost varies based on the area treated, number of units require and location.
Generally speaking, one milliliter of Juvederm XC / Restylane filler (a full syringe) averages a cost of $650 per syringe. One of our highly-trained medical experts will estimate the cost of Juvederm / Restylane treatment by assessing your cosmetic goals and incorporating any applicable office fees.
Prior to your appointment, your doctor will address your cosmetic goals with Juvederm / Restylane treatment, discuss medical history, and provide a brief explanation of the Juvederm / Restylane procedure.
It’s important to share any allergies with your doctor, and it’s best to avoid taking any NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) medications for 24-36 hours before treatment to minimize the risk of excessive bruising.
Before treatment, your doctor will prepare the injection sites using a topical anesthetic.
Treatment is typically completed within fifteen to thirty minutes, with injections administered at the cheeks, lips, and the area surrounding your mouth.
Patients may experience minimal bruising or swelling that typically resolves in one week without medical attention.
Juvederm / Restylane injections involve minimal discomfort, and many patients report no pain at all.
Juvederm / Restylane products typically include lidocaine, a numbing agent and pain reliever.
Your injector may also decide to prepare the injection sites with a topical anesthetic before treatment.
The primary forms of Juvederm / Restylane most commonly used for lip augmentation and volume are Juvederm / Restylane Ultra XC and Juvederm / Restylane Volbella XC, with Juvederm / Restylane Volbella XC being most suitable for augmentation and Juvederm / Restylane Ultra XC intended to restore lost volume.
Your doctor will work with you to assess which form of Juvederm / Restylane is best suited to your aesthetic goals.
Juvederm / Restylane is widely regarded as a low-risk procedure with a high safety profile, and adverse reactions are rare.
Common side effects of Juvederm / Restylane following injection include swelling, bruising, itching, and minor pain.
These side effects are mild and typically resolve within 14 days. In very rare cases, adverse reactions to Juvederm / Restylane may occur when injected directly into an artery, typically the result of an unlicensed or inexperienced injector.
Rare adverse reactions to Juvederm / Restylane treatments can be safely reversed by a medical professional with the administration of hyaluronidase.
Juvederm / Restylane is a safe and effective way to restore volume to the face while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Any injection will cause mild pain. However, we use a variety of measures to minimize this discomfort. Ice, topical anesthetic creams, and/or nerve blocks with lidocaine are all techniques used to reduce pain, bruising, and swelling.
This varies from person to person. In general, BOTOX or JEUVEAU rarely causes bruising. However, facial fillers, especially near the corners of the mouth, often result in mild bruising.
Avoidance of blood thinners can help reduce bruising, as long as you are cleared to stop these by your medical doctor. Make-up can be applied the same day for camouflage, if necessary.
Many lines, folds, and depressions are hereditary. It is not too early to address these. In fact, many facial fillers are made up of natural constituents of the skin, such as hyaluronic acid or collagen. Therefore, it makes sense to restore these to the skin at an early age.
Absolutely. When you call to make your appointment with one of our specialists, just specify whether you are planning on having a consultation with or without actual injectable treatment on the same day.
Juvederm / Restylane Ultra injectable gel is a colorless acid gel that is injected into the facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body that delivers nutrients, hydrates the skin by maintaining water, and acts as a cushioning agent.
Juvederm / Restylane Ultra injectable gel temporarily adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.
You should see immediate improvement in the treated area. Results vary but may last 6 months or more.
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature and usually last less than seven days.
The most common side effects include temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration.
As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
Juvederm / Restylane Ultra should not be used in patients who hace severe allergies marked by history of anaphylaxis, a history or presence of multiple severe allergies, or patients with a history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins.
The doctor will ask you about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment.
The doctor will go over a list of pre-and-post treatment procedures with you. If you are taking aspirin of ibuprofen you may experience increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
Inform your doctor if you are using any of these substances and if you are planning on having any chemical peels or laser treatments.
Juvederm / Restylane should be used with caution in patients on immunosuppressive therapy as there may be an increased risk of infection. The safety of Juvederm / Restylane has not been established in breastfeeding females, during pregnancy, or in patients under 18.
For the first 24 hours following the treatment, you should avoid stenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat, and the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
This minimizes the risk of temporary redness, swelling and/or itching at the treatment sites.
These temporary side effects generally resolve themselves within one week. An ice pack can be applied to the site if you experience swelling. You may apply make-up as usual.
Injectables and fillers at other medical spas are often performed by any technician, but Lumiere Skin and Laser adheres to a higher standard of care.
