About Juvedérm

As we grow older, our skin gradually loses key health components and grows weaker. For example, the production of hyaluronic acid slows down, and the skin cannot retain moisture like it once could. (1) Everyday life, along with gravity, eventually takes a toll on weakened skin and signs of aging begin to show. The face can lose volume and become more gaunt, while creases, wrinkles, and fine lines begin to form. This can have a negative effect on confidence and self-esteem. Luckily, popular cosmetic treatments like Juvedérm can combat these signs of aging, helping patients achieve a more refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. 

Juvedérm’s active ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a moisture-retaining molecule that occurs naturally in the skin. Upon injection, these  fillers serve a dual purpose, adding volume and restoring moisture. The gel-like fluid itself adds physical volume beneath the skin, stretching it for a tighter and smoother appearance. The hyaluronic acid within the formula takes hold in the skin and allows it to become more naturally moisturized. Adding moisture to the skin can contribute to healing that smooths the surface and reduces the appearance of acne scars. (2) These results together can make the skin appear fuller and healthier with an improved texture. 

The Juvedérm collection features several dermal fillers that can enhance the appearance of the skin in various ways. At Alexus Medspa, we offer Juvedérm Ultra Plus and Juvedérm Voluma. 

Juvedérm Ultra Plus

Juvedérm Ultra Plus can address fine lines and wrinkles exceptionally well, as it has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid than other dermal fillers. This helps to add additional moisture to the skin, rejuvenating it for a smoother texture. It can treat deep wrinkles and nasolabial folds for a younger look. 

Juvedérm Voluma 

Juvedérm Voluma is primarily designed to add extra volume to the face, particularly the cheeks. It involves deeper injections of the formula to sit below the skin and make it protrude further outwards. Adding volume in this way can provide a more plump and proportional face that accentuates its natural contours. This can improve the overall shape and appearance of your face. 

Benefits of Juvedérm

Receiving Juvedérm treatment at Alexus Medspa is a highly beneficial cosmetic solution. You can effectively combat your signs of aging and achieve a more youthful visage. 

  • Facial rejuvenation: Juvedérm can effectively restore lost volume, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance facial contours, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
  • Non-surgical solution: Unlike surgical procedures such as a facelift, Juvedérm offers a non-invasive alternative with minimal downtime and less risk involved.
  • Versatility: Juvedérm can be used to address various concerns on different areas of the face, allowing for a tailored approach that meets individual needs and goals.
  • Long-lasting results: The effects of Juvedérm can last many months, providing patients with long-lasting improvements in their appearance.

In this way the Juvedérm treatment is convenient and efficient, treating bothersome imperfections while accentuating your facial structure to an optimal aesthetic.  

Who is a Candidate for Juvedérm?

If you have wrinkles, fine lines, or a lack of facial volume and you are ready to do something about it, Juvedérm treatment could be right for you. It is a great option for patients who want to try something that has proven results before they opt for surgery. This treatment is safe for use on all skin tones, and poses a low risk of complications for most patients. You should be in good health without any skin conditions or sensitivities to injections and anesthetics. You should not receive Juvedérm treatment if you are currently nursing or pregnant. If you have more severe signs of aging, we may recommend surgery to achieve the results you desire. We can discuss these issues and more at your personal consultation. 

Personal Consultation

At Alexus Medspa, we take the time to ensure that you understand everything you need to know before you decide to undergo Juvedérm treatment. At your personal consultation, we will answer all the questions you may have. We will examine your skin and talk with you about your beauty goals. This will help us determine which treatment is the best option for you. We will also inquire about your medical history. Knowing about your past prescriptions and conditions allows us to make your treatment as safe as possible. At the end of your consultation, we can give you an accurate cost estimate based on the treatment plan that we have developed for you. We will schedule your procedure appointment after this meeting is complete.

There is very little preparation required before a Juvedérm treatment session. You should avoid NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) like ibuprofen and aspirin, as these can have blood-thinning effects that may encourage bruising after your procedure. For similar reasons, avoid vitamin E and certain herbal supplements. Do your best to avoid excessive sun exposure in the days leading up to your treatment. Tanned or sunburnt skin can cause heightened sensitivity and lead to irritation and discomfort. Before you come in on the day of your procedure, do not apply any makeup or use any acidic skin products. 

Juvedérm Procedure

The Juvedérm procedure is simple and quick. When you come in for your session, we will clean your treatment area and administer a local anesthetic if necessary to prevent any discomfort from the injections. Your provider will then inject your chosen Juvedérm filler carefully into key areas of your skin, accounting for an even distribution of the results. We can complete most Juvedérm procedures in thirty minutes or less. When your procedure is complete, you may go home and resume everyday activities


Recovery from your Juvedérm procedure will require no downtime. You may experience some initial redness, bruising, swelling, and irritation from your injections. These side effects are normal and should resolve themselves within a few days. If they become bothersome, you can apply ice packs to your treatment areas to alleviate these symptoms. For the first day or two after your procedure, you should avoid applying makeup and acidic skin care products to your treatment area. You should also avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure to prevent further irritation and speed up your recovery. 


The volume-boosting results of your Juvedérm treatment will be immediately apparent. You will have an improved plumper look that will make you appear younger and more aesthetically pleasing overall. As your skin quality begins to improve, you will gain a dewy and radiant glow. The results of this treatment can last for many months, depending on the formulation. You can help maintain them by continuing a healthy skin care routine and applying sunscreen daily. Additional Juvedérm treatments in the future will keep your appearance looking fresh.

What parts of the face can Juvedérm treat?

Juvedérm works best to address signs of aging on the face, particularly in the skin around the nose (nasolabial folds), mouth, and forehead. Certain formulations can also improve the appearance of skin on the back of the hands. 

How long do Juvedérm results last?

Juvedérm treatments can provide results that last for up to six months or even longer. Patients can help to maintain their results by maintaining a healthy skin care routine and avoiding excessive sun exposure. 

Is Juvedérm treatment safe?

Juvedérm fillers primarily contain hyaluronic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally within the skin and slowly depletes as one grows older. Because of this, there is little risk of an adverse reaction to the injections. 

What does recovery from Juvedérm treatment look like?

Recovery from Juvedérm treatment is typically easy and quick. Patients commonly develop redness, bruising, and irritation at their injection sites, but these symptoms often go away on their own.
