How Often Can You Get JUVÉDERM?

JUVÉDERM is a popular dermal filler treatment offered here at Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD. Because it’s so popular, it’s common for us to get questions about it from our many patients in the Baltimore, MD area. One of the most frequent questions is how often you can get treatment, and hence, how long a treatment lasts.

Treatment Frequency: A Customized Approach

While this product is a safe and reliable dermal filler, the frequency of treatments should be carefully considered and tailored to the individual. Factors such as the patient’s skin type, age, lifestyle, and the area being treated all play a crucial role in determining the appropriate frequency of treatments.

For instance, someone who is looking to address fine lines or moderate wrinkles might not require treatments as frequently as someone with deeper folds or loss of volume. The metabolic rate of the patient can also influence the longevity of the results, with faster metabolisms potentially causing the filler to break down more quickly.

There are also various formulations of JUVÉDERM within the product family, and each is formulated to address different aging issues. Some of these formulations naturally last longer – as much as two years – while others naturally fade sooner.

Factors to Consider

Generally, your results can last between six months to two years, depending on the specific product used. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, which is commonly used for adding volume to the cheek area, can last up to two years. On the other hand, JUVÉDERM Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC, often used for lip enhancement, may last around one year.

The duration of the effects also depends on the patient’s skin condition and the rate at which their body metabolizes the filler. External factors such as sun exposure and smoking can affect the duration of the results as well.

Maintaining Optimal Results

Over-filling an area too frequently can result in an unnatural look, while waiting too long between treatments might not maintain the desired results. It’s important to have personalized treatment that takes your unique situation into account.

After your initial treatment, we will closely monitor your progress during your follow-up appointments. This allows us to observe how your skin is responding to the treatment and adapt the treatment plan if necessary. For optimal results, we recommend a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated from the skin. This approach helps to maintain the effect without overdoing it.

Understanding the Product

JUVÉDERM is a collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that assists with hydration and volume. As we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases, leading to a loss of volume and wrinkles or lines. These fillers help to replenish the lost hyaluronic acid, restoring volume and reducing signs of aging.

Why Choose This Treatment?

The popularity of this treatment lies in its versatility and proven results. It’s a non-surgical treatment, which means there’s minimal downtime. Furthermore, it offers instant results and is known for its natural-looking outcome. This treatment can be used to smooth lines, lift and contour cheeks, or plump lips, depending on the specific product used.

Preparation and Post-Treatment Care

To further enhance your results, there are steps you can take before and after your treatment. Prior to your appointment, we recommend avoiding medications that can thin the blood, like aspirin, to minimize any potential for bruising. Post-treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and high temperatures for at least 24 hours to allow your skin time to heal and settle.

Additionally, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and hydration, good sleep, and minimal sun exposure will not only improve your overall skin health but may also help to prolong the effects of your treatments.
