As we age, there is a loss of volume in the face. Juvéderm is an FDA-approved, comprehensive line of temporary, injectable dermal fillers that can help you plump, firm, and fill the skin. If you experience lines and depressions, or deflation in your face, Juvéderm can help restore the supple, volumized, taut skin you once had.
Juvéderm works by being injected just under the skin where it fills any hollowed spaces. Juvéderm contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. HA binds with water to keep skin soft and supple. Although temporary, Juvéderm is a long-lasting solution to your aging woes. Juvéderm results can last anywhere from one to two years, leaving your face feeling lifted, contoured, and rejuvenated!

Preparing for Juvéderm Injections
Making yourself ready for Juvéderm is fairly simple. Certain medications and supplements can cause the skin to bruise beyond what is common for most patients. These blood-thinning medicines should be reduced or stopped at least a week prior to your Juvéderm appointment.
The Beleza Nurse Injector working with you will inform you of any specific steps you may need to take during your consultation. If there is nothing barring you from Juvéderm candidacy, you may be eligible to receive Juvéderm treatment the same day as your consultation!
Juvéderm’s minimally-invasive injections can take as little as 15 minutes! This means your appointment will not monopolize your entire day! You may resume normal activity immediately following your appointment.
Beleza’s Nurse Injector will cleanse the treatment area and apply a topical numbing cream. After a few minutes, they will remove the numbing cream and clean the area once more to prepare for Juvéderm injection. The Nurse Injector will inject the filler in the appropriate area. They may gently rub and squeeze the skin immediately after injection to ensure the Juvéderm gel settles in the ideal areas to meet your goals.
Juvéderm comes in 5 different formulas to help meet your individualized goals. Your medical team will decide which Juvéderm formula will best meet your needs.
Juvéderm Voluma XC
Juvéderm Voluma XC is approved to sculpt and volumize the cheeks. Juvéderm Voluma XC can last up to two years. This formula contains lidocaine to help minimize any discomfort from the injections.
Juvéderm Vollure XC
Juvéderm Vollure XC contains lidocaine to ensure your comfort during and after treatment. Juvéderm Vollure XC is used to treat the moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds of the face. Specifically, the “parentheses” that form around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). It may last up to 18 months.
Juvéderm XC was first FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles that form on the face. Juvéderm XC fills these lines, resulting in a smoother skin surface. This formula can last up to one year with proper administration and care.
Juvéderm Volbella XC
Juvéderm Volbella XC formula is used to fill and plump the lips. Specifically designed for use in the border of the lip, this formula addresses the “lipstick lines” that become more prominent with age. Juvéderm Volbella XC contains lidocaine to make the procedure a breeze!

Juvéderm is a minimally-invasive procedure that allows you to return to your daily plans immediately following your appointment. After you receive Juvéderm injections, your treatment sites may be red and tender. Any discomfort should be minimal and can be addressed by gently placing an ice pack on the treatment area for a few minutes at a time. Our office also sells a topical Arnica Montana herbal gel, which helps to reduce redness and inflammation on unbroken skin. Any redness and discomfort should subside in 24-48 hours following treatment.
The following should be followed immediately after treatment to ensure optimal results:
- Do not rub, bump, or massage the treatment site. If disrupted, the Juvéderm gel may not settle appropriately, causing unevenness in the skin.
- Avoid direct sunlight. Wear sunblock to protect the skin. Prolonged sun exposure following Juvéderm treatment can cause discoloration of the skin.
- Wait a day to exercise. Significant changes in blood pressure may cause additional bruising and bleeding.
- Avoid excessive heat. Saunas and hot showers cause blood vessels to dilate which can cause additional bruising.
Any additional directives will be discussed during your initial Juvéderm evaluation. Reach out to Beleza Plastic Surgery by filling out our short form. Our helpful staff will be happy to contact you to book your Juvéderm consultation.
