Juvederm is generally considered safe for adults over the age of 21. Some Juvederm products contain lidocaine, so if you have any allergies to lidocaine, you would not be a good candidate for this filler.
Your care provider will discuss what results you wish to accomplish and make the injections in corresponding areas to achieve the fullness you wish to restore to areas of your face.
The most common side effects include tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. Most side effects are mild or moderate and last 14 days or less, although with Voluma XC, moderately uncomfortable side effects can last up to four weeks.
Juvederm’s longevity depends on your individual reaction to it and the type of Juvederm used. It can range from six to twenty-four months, depending on which type of Juvederm product is used.
