Two days ago, I had Juverderm treatment on cheek and jaw lines. Lines are still deep. Will this fill in with time?

In time it should improve

Thank you for the question. The areas you are concerned about should improve within a couple of weeks. If you are not satisfied with the results at that point, see your physician. There are several fillers that can be tried if Juvederm does not work well for you. Good luck.

Juvederm and lines

Filler products often add volume and lift depressions a bit. They usually do not fill out specific lines that are etched in. Placing filler too superficially can leave a bluish hue to the skin.

Juvederm treatment for Cheeks and Jaw Lines

Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma are two great products for cheek augmentation and jaw line definition.  There is some temporary swelling for up to two weeks in some cases.  The products do not "fill in with time" as perhaps you were thinking of Sculptra which builds collagen over time.  For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Juvederm and other facial fillers.

Thank you for your question. In my experience you will not see your lines filling in with more time. Typically, there is swelling for the first few days and that is the most full you will look. After a week all of the swelling should be gone and the result you see should not change. It sounds like you need more Juvederm or perhaps another different type of filler. Good luck.

Juvederm for the cheeks and jawline

It takes about two weeks to see the full benefit of your Juvederm treatment.  If you are not happy with the result at that time, please return to your doctor for assessment since you may require more filler.
