Reduces the Signs of Aging
Juvederm reduces the signs of aging by smoothing out facial wrinkles and creases. It can be used to treat deep wrinkles. Many patients look years younger after undergoing a Juvederm treatment.
Fills in Facial Contours
Facial contours deepen as people age. This makes them look older than they really are. Juvederm plumps up contours and can even be used to fill in the lips.
People don’t have to wait to see the results of Juvederm. They will notice the results right away. This gives them an immediate confidence boost. They are ready to show off their new look once they leave SpaMedica.
The results of Juvederm can last for six months to a year. Once the results wear off, people can repeat treatment.
Juvederm comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted physician. The team at SpaMedica has over 15 years of experience with Juvederm and has not had any serious complications that can be associated with this procedure:
It’s normal to experience a slight swelling at the injection site. This typically goes away within 1 to 2 days.
Some patients experience small bruising at the injection site. The bruising normally goes away within a few days. Dr. Mulholland and your SpaMedica injection specialist will help patients prepare for the treatment to minimize bruising.
Slight discomfort is normal following a Juvederm injection. The discomfort is so mild that most people do not need to take over-the-counter medication to alleviate it.
Severe Inflammation, Redness, and Lumpiness
While rare, some patients experience severe inflammation, redness, and lumpiness. These side effects normally disappear within a week. If they last longer, patients should contact SpaMedica.
Skin Necrosis or Eye Blindness
While extremely uncommon (never seen at SpaMedica) it can happen from injection of Juvederm into critical blood vessels.This risk is greatly reduced with the expert use of tiny blunt micro cannula for injections, which is performed by the SpaMedica injection specialists.

Juvederm injections might cause mild discomfort, but they are not painful. Dr. Mulholland uses a numbing agent when administering the injections. Also, Juvederm fillers contain lidocaine, which makes the injections much more comfortable. Laughing gas, known as nitrous oxide, is offered for every injection. The lack of pain is one reason so many people choose Juvederm.
The length depends on the type of Juvederm injection. Results last for six months to up to two years. After the results fade, patients can undergo another Juvederm injection. Most patients are advised to come back once a year for small maintenance injections.
