Juvederm Family of Fillers – What are Dermal Fillers?
Fillers are anything used in the dermis, sub-dermis, or supra-periosteal (meaning in the skin, just below the skin, or just above the bone) to provide structure and support to an area of volume loss…a space that needs filling. There are different types of filler. We like to use products made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA) because of their safety factor. HA is reversible and it’s a synthetic form of something that already occurs in your body, therefore the body does not reject it as something foreign. Juvéderm Family of Fillers are the most recognized HA fillers.
You will get an instant gratification from filler, but there is a 1-2 week settling in period. You may like what you see right after treatment, but we know you will continue to see improvement and softening over the next 2 weeks. Filler ranges dramatically in its duration. Some products may last 4-6 months, where others can have up to a 24 months duration.

What Can I Expect from Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is administered in a smooth-flowing injection, allowing our professionals a high level of control for individualized facial contouring to achieve a natural look. We perform treatments with topical numbing cream to ensure the most comfortable treatment possible. Juvéderm® XC treatments contain pre-mixed anesthetic, lidocaine, for added comfort. These treatments are performed in approximately 30 minutes. Patients may experience mild bruising or swelling following their treatment, but this typically goes away after about a week. Your results should be visible immediately after treatment. Juvéderm® treatments don’t require any downtime, so patients can expect to return to work and other normal activities right after their treatment.
What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is one of the best-selling dermal fillers due to its smooth consistency, pliability and natural looking results. Juvéderm is used to smooth facial lines, wrinkles and nasolabial folds and a perfect choice for enhancing the lips. We are highly experienced in providing Juvéderm to our patients in the heart of Colorado Springs.
Juvéderm is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance our body produces to hydrate and volumize the skin. As we age, the level of hyaluronic acid in our body decreases. Juvéderm therefore simply supplements lost hyaluronic acid due to aging.
Juvéderm is very effective in enhancing specific facial features and providing instant, natural looking results. Juvéderm is one of the most popular treatments due to the results it can achieve.
We also provide Juvéderm Volbella which is a softer dermal filler specifically designed for the lips. Whether your lips have thinned over time- or you simply want fuller lips, Volbella provides a hydrated, silky and natural look. Volbella also smoothes the appearance of vertical lip lines.
Which Areas can Juvéderm be Administered?
What are the Benefits of Juvéderm? (Individual results may vary)
CoolSculpting treatment areas for fat reduction include:
CoolSculpting can be performed on a combination of areas at one time or in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure, including Kybella for chin and neck reduction of fat.
Our CoolSculpting is intended to provide a permanent improvement in the contours of the treated areas to improve proportions, along with a more flattering figure. Most patients find that CoolSculpting is not only SAFE but gives them the sculpted body contours they desire; it also improves their self-confidence.
It’s called stubborn fat for a reason: no matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, it’s virtually impossible to lose those annoying muffin tops, love handles, and belly pooch. You’re left with two options: live with them or think surgery. Neither of these options are cool with us. That’s exactly why we developed CoolSculpting. Only CoolSculpting is able to target fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion that exercise and diet can’t achieve as quickly or as effectively.

What Preparation is Needed for Juvéderm?
To lessen the possibility of bruising and bleeding, 10-12 days prior to receiving injectable treatments we recommend avoiding aspirin, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3, high doses of Vitamin E, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory’s e.g. Aleve, Motrin, Advil and Ibuprofen etc.
If you take aspirin for medical purposes, please continue use. If you have recently suffered from facial cold sores, please notify your Aesthetic Injector prior to receiving injections and follow our recommended treatment plan.
How is Juvéderm Administered?
The treatment begins with collectively mapping out your customized treatment plan, reviewing post-care and answering all your questions and concerns. Ten minutes prior to treatment, we start with the application of ice and a topical numbing cream which helps alleviate discomfort during the procedure.
The injection process takes approximately 30-60 minutes and involves a series of small injections into the deep dermis of the preferred treatment area.
What Can I Anticipate After Treatment?
There is very little, if any, downtime or recovery needed. You can resume most activities right away. It is important to not rub or massage the treated areas so that the filler can remain undisturbed. Juvéderm injections, just like any other injection, can cause some bruising and swelling.
We have some special techniques that we use to minimize the swelling and bruising associated with Juvéderm injections.
However, if bruising and swelling occurs it will subside and fade in a few days. Some mild redness is normal after the procedure and should diminish in 60 minutes. Makeup can be applied 15 minutes after treatment. If you experience any mild aching at the site of injection after the procedure this can easily be controlled with Tylenol.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Immediately after the treatment you will see an increase in volume and a smoother appearance. Results will continue to improve over the next 48 hours. Your body will naturally acclimate to the hyaluronic acid and the product will bind to water, producing a fuller appearance. (Individual results may vary).
Juvéderm needs to be repeated and maintained. The actual length of result can vary from person to person due to deference’s in facial anatomy, gender and lifestyle. Proactive maintenance is key to providing continued results (individual results may vary).
