As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form.
Juvéderm is a hyaluronic acid filler for the purpose of adding volume to your cheeks, smile lines and lips.
Juvéderm injectable gel is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler with results that can last 1-2 years. The smooth-consistency gel is made of hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin that adds volume and hydration.
We inject Juvederm under your skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds in your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds - creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Juvéderm provides a smooth, natural look everyone will notice, without ever realizing you had a treatment. Studies show superior results of Juvéderm compared to a collagen-based dermal filler.
Almost 90% of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm injectable gel and another dermal filler ended up preferring Juvéderm.
Voluma is especially effective for correcting gaunt or hollow cheeks and light areas of sagging in the skin of the mid-face. Voluma is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable gel filler, the first of its kind to be approved by the FDA for restoring volume to the cheeks.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in youthful skin that can significantly improve various signs of aging. Our experienced care provider can perform a Juvederm treatment to help enhance the apples of your cheeks and give your face a more youthful, yet natural-looking contour.

During your initial consultation for Juvederm Vancouver plastic surgeon Dr. Workman will teach how to prepare for your treatment. This will include avoiding any medications that can prolong bleeding, i.e., aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) at least a week prior to your treatment to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
You can download the forms to fill out regarding your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you may take. We will go through the procedure step by step and work with you to develop a customized plan for your treatment, which will be designed to address your unique concerns and provide you with results that will blend seamlessly with your own natural appearance.
When you come in for your treatment, we will carefully mark the injection sites. No local or general anesthesia is required for this procedure, but some patients may choose to have a topical numbing gel applied to minimize any discomfort. We will examine the soft tissue of your face to assess the depth of wrinkles and folds to determine your treatment. Once the gel is injected, you will see the changes occur in real-time. You will work with our experienced care provider while your treatment is happening to achieve highly personalized results.
Juvéderm is available in two formulations: Juvéderm Ultra for versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds, and Juvéderm Ultra Plus that provides a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles. This allows us to better tailor the treatment to your unique needs. We may take pre-treatment photographs so you can see the difference after your treatment!
The injection process takes about an hour and the results are immediate with minimal recovery or downtime. You can step into your doctor's office for treatment and return to your normal activities afterward.
With a Juvéderm procedure, you should see an immediate improvement in the treatment areas with most patients needing a single treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing for up to a year.
Since Juvéderm is a simple, nonsurgical wrinkle treatment, there is minimal recovery or downtime. You can make an appointment and have a treatment on the way home from work or the gym or even while the kids are at soccer practice. The procedure is quick and easy, usually taking about an hour.
Although anesthesia is not required, we may use topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first. The gel is inserted under your skin to augment or fill wrinkles and folds. Following the injection, we may gently massage the treated areas.
With Juvéderm, there is minimal recovery or downtime. You may experience some slight bruising or discomfort following your treatment but can return to work and other activities shortly after.
For the first 24 hours following your procedure, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. This helps minimize the risks of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. There may be some temporary injection-related reactions; redness, pain, firmness, swelling, and bumps. Studies show these conditions are usually mild to moderate in nature and resolve on their own in a week or so.
If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, allergic reactions are extremely rare. However, if you notice any strange side effects or pain, please contact our office immediately.
