Are there any common Juvederm complications that patients experience?
This is one of the popular neurotoxins, used to address an array of facial cosmetic issues. It’s a filler product that many young women receive for fuller lips, among other purposes. While Juvederm is a pretty painless procedure, like anything else, there is a modest chance of side effects.
Possible Juvederm Complications (and how we address them)
We always remind patients that there are a few risks with injectable fillers, but they’re avoidable if you work with a skilled injector. The primary risk with fillers is the chance of injecting into an artery. This would most often manifest in a blanch or perhaps some minor pain afterwards.
Fortunately, that problem is reversible by using an enzyme to counter the effect. It’s always important to call us and let us know if you experience any complications. Most emergency rooms also know how to manage arterial injuries after injections.
Are there any other injuries you might incur during Juvederm treatment?
It happens less often, but you may experience minor bruising from the injection. We carry a few topical solutions and medication packets to address those problems if they occur.
What about swelling? How long does that last?
The swelling from most fillers will occur the following day after an injection. This problem normally resolves itself within a couple of days. Most patients would see the final results, and no further swelling, by day three.
Juvederm Results – Duration & Expectations
How long does Juvederm last? What kind of results can patients expect?
Product durability depends on facial movement. The more you move your face, the faster the substance breaks down beneath the skin. The most common area for this would be along the nasolabial crease, which is where your face moves for smiling and other expressions.
Facial movement can diminish the molecules in Juvederm. This involves a chemical called Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Juvederm’s active ingredient. Then again, this toxin maintains its volume very well, only losing strength after several months.
As a rule of thumb, most patients revisit us for a follow-up after about eight months. These are often the same clients who receive Botox with us, too. Therefore, it makes sense to replenish the Juvederm about every other time you receive Botox.
Research shows that most people lose about one cubic centimeter of facial volume every year. With that benchmark, we can gauge how often you’d need a fresh supply of Juvederm. Overall, it’s an outstanding product because it’s been proven to deliver those almost perfect plump lips many women really want.

Juvederm Complications are Minimal; Results are Outstanding
Juvederm has been around for a while now. It was one of the first cosmetic fillers, made by the manufacturer, Allergan. Compared to other toxins, it has a smaller particle size, doesn’t cross-link much, and the body absorbs and tolerates it well.
Thanks to its superior duration, you don’t have to get new doses all the time. Finally, its chemical composition is easy to inject, rarely brings about any pain, and we can avoid most discomfort with a nerve block and/or ice-chill pack.
