How Long Before I See Juvederm Results?

How long does it take to see results from Juvederm?  I just got some in my nasolabial folds and lips, and I can't wait to see how it really is going to look.

You should see results already

With most of the injectables, what you see is what you get. There is some minor swelling and bruising, but for the most part, you should see the results the same day. After a week, most of the swelling should be resolved. Many doctors correctly under fill the areas being treated, with the expectation that you may need further injections. This is not a scam to make more money, but a way to ensure that you are not overdone. Once the filler is put in place, it is very hard if not impossible to remove it. So, it is better to come back for a second injection rather than have to suffer through months of overcorrection.

Juvederm results are immediate as well as progressive

Juvederm is a type of HA (hyaluronic acid) dermal filler which is often incorporated into a rejuvenation program to address signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds or creases in the skin. It is also a popular treatment to enhance certain areas of the face such as the lips and cheeks. As the product is injected into the skin, the result can be seen immediately. However, the full result will come in the following weeks as the redness/swelling dissipates and the product settles into the patient's skin. A follow-up with your physician after 2-3 weeks of the injection is a great way to make sure both she/he and you are happy with the achieved result.

Waiting for Juvederm results

Hi Lilley,

If anything, the results you would see immediately after injection would perhaps be a bit fuller than the final results because of swelling. The amount of swelling depends on the skill of the practitioner, the area injected and the amount of icing used before and after treatment.

If you've got swelling after your injections, then the "final" results should be seen after about 1 week. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Juvederm Results

Results from Juvederm, along with other hyaluronic fillers is immediate. Any extra fullness from swelling in the area and at injection sites should be completely gone within 10-14 days which is why we recommend a two week follow-up.  This is very important to provide a great service to a new client.  We do touch-ups at no additional charge in order to “learn” the clients face.

Facial Fillers: Juvederm Results are Immediate

Facial fillers fall into three categories:

  • True Facial Fillers that act to fill atrophic tissue: Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane
  • Facial injectables that stimulate cells to produce collagen: Sculptra
  • Facial Injectables that are true fillers and stimulate collagen: Radiesse

Juvederm is composed of hyaluronic acid and is thus characterized as a true facial filler. These products fill areas of atrophy and results are immediate.

You Should be Seeing Results Right Now

Juvederm results are instant. You should be able to tell a difference right after being injected by your practitioner.  There is often some swelling immediately after the injection but that fades within a day or so. Hope that helps!

Juvederm results

Although you can see an improvement immediately after your treatment, I usually tell my patients that they should wait for about 2 weeks, since swelling might hide your results.

Immediately see Juvederm results

With Juvederm or Restylane you will see immediate results. If anything, the results you would see immediately after injection would perhaps be a bit fuller than the final results because of swelling. Swelling can be multi factorial: a patient individual response, the skill of the practitioner, the area injected, the type of filler used, if a cannula (blunt type of needle) is utilized and the amount of icing used before and after treatment. Remember, there can be some temporary bruising for a few days. I find that all and all you typically will see your final results in 3-5 days.

How Long Before I See Juvederm Results?

After the injection of Juvederm you should see the results immediately. Unlike the filler Sculptra that stimulates the body to make its own collagen, a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm immediately provides results. If, at the time of injection, you don't achieve your expected result, express your concern to your injector. It is most likely that an insufficient amount was injected and you need more.

See Juvederm injection results immediately!

The wonderful thing about many dermal fillers today is that you will see immediate results. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid or sugar that will attract water.

Because of this, you will see some additional swelling or fullness usually within 2-3 days. This usually resolves within the first week following injection. Rare patients may develop significant swelling, but is less likely.
