About Juvéderm

From treating wrinkles and lines to creating lips that are plump and full, Juvéderm injectable treatments at Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. in Los Angeles, CA provide attractive results that look natural.

Talk to our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Geoffrey Keyes, about refreshing your face without the expense and time of cosmetic surgery with the Juvéderm collection of dermal filling treatments

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for Juvéderm injectable wrinkle treatments are women and men who have facial wrinkles and lines they would like to improve with renewed fullness. It is beneficial if you have age-related volume loss or naturally thin cheeks or lips. Juvéderm wrinkle filler injections at Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. are fantastic if you are looking to refresh the appearance of your face while avoiding the recovery time and expense of facial cosmetic surgery (like brow lifts, facelifts, eyelid lifts, or facial implants).

Procedure Technique

Juvéderm treatments on average only last around 15 – 30 minutes, based on how many areas are being addressed. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort throughout the procedure, Juvéderm formulas contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). Following your procedure, you may continue your normal routine; however, strenuous activity such as exercise should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your Juvéderm injections to prevent pushing the gel into unwanted areas.

  • Juvéderm Vollure and XC correct medium or deep lines throughout the face, such as nasolabial folds and other lines around the nose and mouth. The results on average are visible for around a year.
  • Juvéderm Volbella and Ultra XC add lift to the lower lip, upper lip, or the entire mouth while also reducing the look of fine lines in the lips. The improvements typically are visible for up to a year.

What to Expect

You usually see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm injection, but you could also have light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for around 7 – 10 days. The final results of Juvéderm treatments typically can be seen for as long as a year; some patients notice that their improvements last over a year after 2 – 3 years of injections. Talk to Dr. Keyes about how soon to schedule your next injection session at Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. to sustain your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Juvéderm cost?
Costs for a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your Juvéderm treatment, a personalized injection plan will be developed to match your goals. Once this is done, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.

Are Juvéderm injections painful?
While many patients don't think it's needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you're concerned about discomfort. After the injection, you might have mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should reduce over the next week. Please contact Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. if you have any severe discomfort or the signs of infection following your injection.

What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers correct wrinkles, but through different methods. Injectable relaxers, such as BOTOX, treat dynamic wrinkles created by chronic muscle movements. Injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, improves static wrinkles by adding volume. Juvéderm is great for improving mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.

What results can I expect?
You may need to wait several days to see the actual improvements from your injections. Usually, it takes only one appointment to reach your aesthetic goal. However, you may make another appointment if you want to improve your results.

How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last up to two years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower depending on the speed at which your body metabolizes the formula.
