Benefits of Juvéderm® Lip Filler
There are many benefits to Juvéderm® lip filler. Juvéderm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body. Here are some of the benefits Juvéderm® lip fillers can provide:
  • Juvéderm® is Comfortable: Juvéderm® contains lidocaine, which offers localized pain relief, making the injection comfortable for the patient.
  • Natural-Looking Results Around the Mouth: Juvéderm® contains a smooth gel, offering natural-looking results around the lip area.
  • Immediate Results: Juvéderm® offers immediate improvement when affected areas are treated, with most clients needing only one treatment to achieve a desirable volume increase.
  • Brief Procedure: Juvéderm® treatment can typically be completed in less than 15 minutes, with minimal downtime needed before normal activities can be resumed.
  • Reversible and Biodegradable: Juvéderm®  is reversible if a client isn’t satisfied with the results, and it is biodegradable, meaning the gel gradually breaks down and eventually disappears.
  • Add volume and definition to lips: Juvéderm® is designed to add volume and definition to the lips, making them look fuller and more youthful.
  • Correct lip asymmetries: Juvéderm® can also help correct lip asymmetries, such as creating a better symmetry between the left and right sides of the lips.
  • Improve lip contours: Juvéderm® can also be used to improve the contours of the lips, allowing for a more attractive and natural look.
Juvéderm® Side Effects
Juvéderm® is generally safe for most healthy adults and can offer desired cosmetic results. However, as with any medical procedure, Juvéderm® has its side effects, which may range from mild to severe. These can include swelling, bruising, and redness, though these typically only last for 7 days or less.
If an inexperienced non-medical provider does Juvéderm®, it could cause serious side effects like blindness, an infection, an allergic reaction, or a stroke. To lower the risk of these bad side effects, getting Juvéderm® treatments from correctly trained, experienced, licensed doctors or registered nurses is important.

What Happens During a Lip Filler Procedure?
During a Juvéderm® lip filler procedure, your healthcare provider will apply a topical anesthetic or give you a nerve block injection to numb your lips. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, they will use a thin needle to inject Juvéderm® into any or all parts of your lips, including the vermillion border, Cupid’s bow and corners of your mouth. You won’t feel any pain, but you may feel a pinching sensation, and your eyes may water.
Your healthcare provider will insert 1 mL of Juvéderm® lip filler, and the needle won’t go deeper than 2.5 mm into your skin. An ice pack may be applied to your lips during the procedure to reduce swelling. 
Juvéderm® Aftercare
It is important to follow your medical provider’s advice on Juvéderm® aftercare in order to achieve the best results and minimize side effects. Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind:
  • Avoid direct sunlight and sources of heat (tanning beds, saunas, etc.) for a few weeks.
  • Avoid high-intensity workouts for 24 hours.
  • Don’t lie down or bend below the waist for four hours.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Avoid blood-thinning medication for several days.
  • Sleep with an elevated head for several days.
  • Avoid laser treatments for two weeks.
Following these guidelines can help ensure a successful Juvéderm® treatment.
