How long does juvederm usually last?

How long does juvederm usually last?

6-18 months: Juvederm is an "HA" (hyaluronic acid) filler that is offered in the US as "ultra" and "ultra plus". Ultra is more supple and typically used for thin skin areas (tear trough, lips, nose), whereas ultra plus is more robust and used in thicker skin areas (nasal folds, cheeks, chin). In my experience ultra will provide 6-9 months of correction compared to 9-18 with ultra plus. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Belotero is designed to gointo fine lines of the lip and also deeper wrinkles. It can be delivered superficially without blue formation ...Read more

Can you be allergic to juvederm? What are some alternatives?

Unlikely: Juvederm is hyaluronic acid, a natural component of skin. Because of this, your body should see it the same way it does all the rest of the hyaluronic acid in your body. The manufacturing process, however, involves the use of bacteria to produce the hyaluronic acid. You may be allergic to bacterial proteins that are still contained in Juvederm. ...Read more

Is juvederm safe while taking peginterferon and ribasphere. No mor detail

I would wait to use: Usually when being treated with peg interferon and ribavirin, you become immunosuppresed (i.e. Low immune system), so any other injections like juvederm can lead to local inflammation/skin reactions, infections and confound the other symptoms that you might be experiencing while undergoing treatment. I would wait to use juvederm until you finish your treatment therapy. ...Read more

Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .

Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .

Not Far.: Juvederm can move a bit from the injection site, but not far. If you put pressure on the area you can displace it to the sides a bit and smooth it out (this can be helpful if you have lumps or bumps afterward). It does not move to other areas of the face or body because of connective tissues under the skin.

I was given hyaluronidase injections for lumpy juvederm. The areas are still hard and lumpy but have gone down a little. Do I need more?

I would wait: Without seeing or feeling it, I cannot confidently say you would need more or not. After filler injections (juvederm, restylane, (dermal fillers) or perlane), feeling some lumpiness is common, but it should not be visible. If it is not visible, leave it alone. If it is visible, massaging it gently 30 sec twice daily helps to soften it. Also, fillers are also firm for 1-2 weeks after injecting, then they soften. ...Read more
