One of the most common aesthetic non-surgical treatments, JuvédermⓇ is an FDA-approved line of dermal fillers. Manufactured by Allergen, Juvéderm carries a variety of science-backed products. Each product has a smooth, gel-like consistency administered at different depths according to your targeted skin concern. The injections restore volume to different areas of the face and reduce age-related wrinkles, folds, and fine lines. Juvéderm is specifically designed to treat adults 21 and older.
The Way it Works
Juvéderm injections work to diminish moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles, folds, and fine lines through its primary active ingredient: hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-binding sugar molecule that occurs naturally in your body and is a major structural component of your skin. It acts as a hydrating agent and keeps the skin plump, strong, firm, and hydrated. This is why it’s known as the body’s “internal moisturizer”.
The family of excellent Juvéderm medspa products includes:
JUVÉDERM XC and JUVÉDERM Vollure XC
- Fills in wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds) caused by loss of skin elasticity

- Non-surgical lip enhancement treatments to address dull, thin lips
Your Treatment Timetable
Juvéderm treatments are quick and convenient. The exact length of your session will depend on the number of injections you have and the target area’s size and condition. Unlike surgery, recovery time for Juvéderm is very minimal. You will need to avoid the following until we advise you otherwise:
- Strenuous exercise
- Excessive sun or heat exposure
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
- Alcohol consumption
The results of Juvéderm are typically visible immediately after injection. Bruising and swelling, which can be reduced with ice, should subside within the next few days. The dermal filler is highly potent as the injection can last six to 18 months. Moving forward, your specialist may recommend supplemental treatments to achieve and maintain optimal correction of aesthetic concerns.
The step-by-step procedure of Juvéderm Injections
Before treatment, your Nubo Spa specialist will thoroughly clean the targeted skin with an antiseptic, and will then mark the injection sites. After preparation, a fine needle is gently inserted into the targeted area. The needle penetrates the surface layer and moves into deeper dermal layers to deliver the filler, adding volume and smoothening age-related wrinkles, fine lines, and folds. Because Juvéderm contains lidocaine to improve comfort, an anesthetic may not be needed. However, your physician can provide a topical anesthetic before injection on the area to be treated before giving the injection.
