How Long Do Juvéderm Lip Fillers Last?
Juvederm is a family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers designed to provide non-invasive facial rejuvenation and enhancement without any downtime or discomfort. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm are ideal for replacing volume loss, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, augmenting facial features and contours, and restoring a more youthful appearance. Juvederm hyaluronic acid fillers are among the most popular cosmetic injectables for their long-lasting, consistently stunning results. So, how long does Juvederm last? Most Juvederm fillers produce cosmetic results lasting up to 18 months. It is no wonder that Juvederm treatments with Dr. Green in New York City are so highly sought after.
The Juvederm family of dermal fillers is composed of varying injectable gel formulations of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar complex found in the skin. As we age, hyaluronic acid depletes, and we cannot replace what is lost. By injecting a sophisticated hyaluronic acid filler, such as Juvederm, Dr. Green can reverse signs of aging and revitalize one’s appearance. Juvederm fillers are often used to correct the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and volume loss in the mid-face and to plump the appearance of thin lips. Many patients of Dr. Green’s choose to combine their Juvederm treatments with other non-invasive cosmetic procedures, including Botox, chemical peels, microneedling, and laser treatments, to achieve pan-facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Michele Green is an internationally renowned board-certified dermatologist with over two and a half decades of experience providing some of the world’s most discerning individuals with the best non-invasive cosmetic treatments, including hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Juvederm.

She is consistently identified as one of New York City’s best dermatologists by Castle Connolly, New York Magazine, Super Doctors, and the New York Times for her dedication to her patients and expertise. When you consult with Dr. Green at her private dermatology office in NYC, she will work with you to select the appropriate dermal fillers for your enhancement goals.
What are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component in the skin that contributes to essential hydration and a supple, youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid injectables are the most popular type of dermal fillers, used to enhance facial contours and features, replenish age-related volume loss, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers are minimally invasive, require zero downtime, have few potential side effects, and their use can be personalized to meet the needs of each patient’s individual concerns and aesthetic goals. The Juvederm hyaluronic acid fillers are formulations that provide incredibly natural-looking enhancement, designed to move smoothly with one’s facial features. When an expert injector, such as a board-certified dermatologist, such as Dr. Michele Green in New York City, performs Juvederm injections, a more youthful appearance is achieved with long-lasting results.
Is Juvederm a dermal filler? How long does each type of Juvederm filler last?
Yes, Juvederm is a family of hyaluronic acid fillers that have been FDA-approved for facial rejuvenation. Produced by Allergan Aesthetics, Juvederm facial fillers produce relatively long-lasting results. Juvederm fillers are effective at restoring facial volume loss, correcting fine lines and wrinkles, and enhancing various facial features. The long-lasting results can be attributed to the fact that Juvederm dermal fillers are made with Vycross technology, which cross-links the molecules of the filler. Some of the most popular Juvederm fillers, their indications, and the duration of their results are described below:
Juvederm Voluma is FDA-approved to correct age-related volume loss in the midface and is also used for cheek augmentation. Juvederm Voluma has been shown to last up to two years.
Juvederm Ultra Plus was one of the first Juvederm filler products to be FDA-approved and is used to address moderate to severe wrinkles or creases, such as the marionette lines and nasolabial folds. It can also be used for lip augmentation. The results of this Juvederm treatment typically last for up to a year.
Juvederm Vollure XC is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and can last for up to a year.
Juvederm Volbella is a member of the Juvederm family specifically designed for lip augmentation and to eliminate the appearance of fine lines surrounding the lips, known as the perioral lines. Perioral lines, which are also known as vertical lip lips or lipstick lines, are often most apparent when puckering the lips and extending vertically upward and downward from the lips. Juvederm Volbella works to erase these lines and plump the lips. The treatment lasts for up to a year.
Juvederm Volux is designed specifically for chin and jawline enhancement. The treatment works to contour the jawline and provide patients with their ideal chin and facial proportions. Juvederm Volux lasts in the treatment area for up to a year.
Skinvive is a hyaluronic acid injectable gel treatment to hydrate and smooth the skin of the cheeks. Juvederm Skinvive works differently from the dermal fillers that make up the Juvederm filler collection. Skinvive represents an innovation in the field of cosmetic dermatology, as it is the first intradermal injectable hyaluronic acid-based treatment to improve skin texture for smooth, hydrated skin, with results lasting approximately six months. The injectable treatment is specifically used to combat dry skin in the cheek area of the face with natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Which areas of the face can Juvederm treat?
The Juvederm family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is comprised of various products that are designed to treat different areas of the face. Each Juvederm filler product is an injectable gel with a distinct formulation and thickness. The wide range of Juvederm fillers available allows expert injectors, such as Dr. Green in NYC, to customize Juvederm treatment plans to meet the unique needs of a given patient. Juvederm fillers are often used to replenish volume in the mid-face and reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and facial fine lines. Juvederm fillers are also used for chin or lip augmentation and cheekbone and jawline enhancement. Patients with depressed acne scars can also benefit from having a subcision treatment with dermal fillers to create a smoother skin texture. When you consult with Dr. Green at her private dermatology office in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood, you will have the opportunity to discuss your personal skin concerns and aesthetic goals. Depending on the areas of the face and the specific signs of aging you’d like to address, Dr. Green will work with you to select the appropriate Juvederm fillers for your rejuvenation treatment.
Dermal Filler Treatments For Reversing The Signs of Aging
When you’re young, collagen is abundant, and the mid-face and cheeks are full and round. However, as you age, the cheek area loses its youthful appearance as collagen levels deplete. The cheek area and mid-face begin to lose volume and flatten, and your skin may start to sag. Juvéderm Voluma XC is designed to add volume to lift your cheeks, giving you a smoother, natural-looking contour and a more youthful look. This is the hyaluronic acid filler with the longest-lasting results – clinically proven to last up to 2 years. Over time, your skin loses elasticity. This natural process, plus genetics and environmental factors like sun exposure, can cause moderate to severe lines and folds to form around areas of the face, such as the nose and mouth. Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC can help fill these fine lines and give you natural-looking results that last.
When comparing Juvéderm Ultra Plus vs. Ultra, there are both similarities and differences. For instance, both are HA fillers and are used for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles. However, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC is a thicker, more viscous substance than Juvederm Ultra. Therefore, Ultra Plus XC can provide more dramatic results in areas with deeper lines and hollows in the skin, such as the nasal labial folds. Juvederm Ultra XC is more appropriate for superficial locations and finer lines and wrinkles.
Understanding The Different Types of Juvederm Lip Fillers
Juvéderm has two unique fillers for lip augmentation – whether you want a plumper appearance or subtle volume. These HA fillers are the longest-lasting fillers for the lip area – lasting up to 1 year. Juvéderm Ultra XC gives you plumper, natural-looking lips and enhances lip fullness. Juvéderm Volbella adds volume for a more subtle plump, and it’s also used to soften the appearance of vertical lip lines. Unwanted lines such as these are often caused by factors such as sun exposure or repeated muscle movements. Juvéderm is the first and only filler proven to increase lip fullness and soften lip lines. If you’re looking to add volume to your lips, create a pout, or reverse the signs of aging, these lip injections can help. For many, this is a preferred option when compared to lip implants that require an invasive cosmetic procedure by a plastic surgeon.
How long do Juvederm lip injections last?
A large part of cosmetically treating the lips is also treating the visible signs of aging around the lips and the vertical lines above and below the lips. These perioral lines are referred to as “smoker’s lines,” but the lines are a result of age, smoking, and the damaging effects of the sun. Juvederm Volbella XC was specifically developed to treat these vertical lip lines. Juvederm Volbella adds subtle volume and smooths the appearance of these vertical lip lines for up to one year. Juvederm Ultra is often used for both dramatic lip augmentation and subtle lip enhancement, with results lasting 6-18 months. The exact duration of one’s lip filler may depend on their metabolism and the type and amount of dermal filler used. When you consult with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green at her private office in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood regarding your lip augmentation, she will work with you to ensure you achieve and maintain the perfect pout.
Where else is Juvederm used?
Juvederm hyaluronic acid fillers enhance facial contours, augment facial features, replenish volume loss, reduce signs of aging, and provide an overall more youthful appearance. Some patients may use Juvederm to reduce acne scars or depressed stretch marks. Many patients prefer having Juvederm injections for rejuvenation over invasive plastic surgery procedures, which can require significant downtime and be associated with many potential side effects. In contrast, Juvederm produces consistently stunning revitalization results with essentially zero downtime and few possible side effects. When you consult with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green at her private office in NYC, she will work with you to determine whether you are a good candidate for Juvederm injections. During your consultation, Dr. Green will collect a thorough medical history, review any previous cosmetic treatments you may have had, and physically assess the treatment area to select the dermal filler products best suited to your particular skin concerns and unique aesthetic goals.
Is Juvederm permanent?
Juvederm dermal fillers produce incredibly long-lasting and natural-looking results, with effects remaining for up to 18 months. Patients enjoy the fact that as their particular skin concerns and aesthetic goals change over time, they can adjust their dermal filler treatment plans accordingly. Most patients engage in regular maintenance treatment sessions to keep up the best cosmetic effects. When you consult with Dr. Green regarding your non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment with dermal fillers, she will work with you to select the types of fillers and establish a timeline for your treatment sessions that aligns with your needs.
Which lasts longer, Juvederm or Restylane?
Juvederm and Restylane are both families of dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid. Both types of dermal filler families have different products that were designed to be injected into certain areas of the face, each of which varies in thickness and longevity. Juvederm typically lasts a few months longer than Restylane, with similar safety profiles and potential side effects. Both types of dermal fillers are compounded with lidocaine to make the injections themselves more comfortable for the patient. Some cosmetic dermatologists prefer one type of hyaluronic acid filler over another. Both Restylane and Juvederm offer immediate cosmetic results to the treatment areas. The cost of each dermal filler varies depending on the specific type used, the amount of product used, and the experience and qualifications of the injector. Generally, the Juvederm line of products is a bit more costly than Restylane due to its particularly long-lasting results. Many Restylane fillers produce rejuvenation results lasting up to one year, with some Juvederm fillers lasting up to two years. The type of filler that’s right for your rejuvenation treatment will depend on your facial anatomy, the signs of aging you’d like to address, the areas of the face you’d like to treat, and your aesthetic goals. Dr. Green is an expert injector with over two and a half decades of experience providing some of the world’s most discerning individuals with the best dermal filler injections, and she will work with you individually to select the right type of filler for your needs.
When does Juvederm take full effect? How long does it take Juvederm to settle?
The rejuvenation results of Juvederm injections are immediate. There may be some immediate swelling at the injection sites, which is a potential side effect that can’t fully be avoided. Ice packs will be applied to the treatment area immediately upon completion of your Juvederm injections to reduce initial swelling. Depending on which type of Juvederm filler was used, there may be several days to two weeks of residual swelling, which eventually resolves on its own. Some patients are more sensitive to this side effect and swell for extended periods. It is best to plan your cosmetic dermal filler injections, keeping in mind the potential side effects of swelling or bruising and allowing for a few days of downtime. Patients who are prone to bruising can begin taking Arnika, an oral herbal supplement, several days before their Juvederm injections to prevent bruising. Arnika can also be taken for several days after Juvederm treatment to heal bruising should it occur.
How to Prepare For a Dermal Filler Appointment
Some of the greatest benefits of dermal filler treatment are that there is very little preparation involved, few potential side effects, and zero downtime. Dr. Green recommends to her patients that they do not take Aspirin, aspirin-containing products, or blood thinners like Coumadin, Ibuprofen, fish oil, Aleve, Motrin, multivitamins, and Vitamin E at least 1-2 weeks before their scheduled injection treatment. These medications can increase the risk of encountering side effects such as swelling and bruising near the treatment sites. Arnika pills are sometimes recommended to take at least one week prior to your appointment; these pills help reduce bruising – as it’s one of the most common side effects of injections; however, each case is different, and all options should be discussed with your dermatologist first. When you have dermal filler injections with Dr. Green, she will provide you with all of the pertinent information required for achieving and maintaining the best cosmetic results.
Is Juvederm a good dermal filler for fine lines?
Yes! Several Juvederm dermal fillers work well to treat fine lines and deep wrinkles, including facial creases like the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. The Juvederm family of dermal fillers, produced by Allergan, is well-established in the field of cosmetic dermatology and is among the most popular hyaluronic acid fillers available. Patients appreciate that with Juvederm fillers, they can reverse various signs of aging and achieve a more youthful appearance without any downtime or discomfort.
How long does Juvederm Voluma last?
The duration of the effects of dermal filler injections typically depends in part on the patient’s metabolism and the amount and type of dermal filler used. Juvederm Voluma is one of the longest-lasting hyaluronic acid fillers, typically lasting nine months to a year from the date of treatment, with a maximum longevity of two years in duration. The longevity of the filler also depends on the treatment site. When used to restore lost volume to the cheeks, Juvederm Voluma can last for up to 2 years. When applied to the chin for chin augmentation, the treatment results can last for up to a year. Dr. Green will work with you to establish a timeline for your Juvederm injections that ensures you achieve and maintain optimal results.
What is Juvederm Treatment like?
The first step in getting Juvederm dermal filler injections is consulting with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green at her private office in Manhattan’s Upper East Side neighborhood. During your consultation, Dr. Green will collect a thorough medical history, review your skincare regimen and any previous cosmetic treatments you may have had, and physically assess your skin condition. Dr. Green will determine which cosmetic treatments you are a good candidate for and select the dermal fillers best suited to your particular needs and goals. Photographs of the treatment areas will be taken and stored in your private medical record to enhance your discussion and track future progress. Depending on your preference and time allowance, Juvederm injections may be performed on the same day as your consultation or scheduled for a later date.
On the day of your Juvederm injections, a topical numbing cream should be applied to the entire treatment area one hour before the appointment. Once you arrive at Dr. Green’s office, the numbing cream will be removed and the skin sterilized. The Juvederm fillers used by Dr. Green are also compounded with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to make the experience quite comfortable. Dr. Green will artfully perform the Juvederm injections in the designated treatment areas. After the injections, ice packs are applied to the treated areas of the face to minimize any potential swelling. Patients may be encouraged to return to Dr. Green’s office two weeks later so that she can evaluate the results and discuss any needed touch-ups that may be required.
