As we get older, the quality of the skin on our faces decreases and leaves wrinkles and folds. For some people, their genetic makeup and health habits can even speed up this process.
One set of treatments many in Nashville have found effective for reversing the signs of aging are JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers.
What is JUVEDERM?
JUVÉDERM is a family of dermal filler products that can help you reverse the signs of aging and improve your appearance. Mainly, the JUVÉDERM dermal fillers help fill in deep lines and wrinkles to leave you with a smoother and younger face.

What To Know Before Getting JUVEDERM
JUVÉDERM is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure which means it’s not surgery. You can get your treatment done in a short visit and go back to your normal average everyday life without anyone noticing that you had some kind of work done. Well, except that your skin looks younger and more plump than usual. But that’s what you were going for, right?
Here are some more important things you should know before getting JUVÉDERM treatments:
After your treatment, avoid touching your face frequently, and especially don’t massage it.
Avoid doing strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours to 48 hours.
Know that your full results usually take one to two weeks to be noticeable.
Drink plenty of water.
Avoid foods with a lot of sodium to prevent excess water retention.
Stay out of the sauna or steam room for 48 hours, because the high heat can make swelling worse.
Keep your head elevated when sleeping.
Be prepared in case you see side effects like swelling, redness, tenderness or soreness.
How Long Do JUVEDERM Fillers Last?
It depends on how well your body metabolizes the HA in the filler. But it also depends on which product you choose and for which area of the face.
Whichever JUVÉDERM product is the thickest is the one that will most likely last the longest. Since your body will have to spend more time absorbing the HA.
But in general, the results usually last up to one year. So long as you get proper treatment. Which, unless you’re going to some sketchy back-alley aesthetician, you can probably get even if you don’t visit our office in particular. But we do have some pretty great people who make a living off of this, and we’d like to keep getting paid. So please come see us so we can take your money.
How Much Does 1 Syringe Of JUVÉDERM Cost?

JUVEDERM Smooths Out Lines and Wrinkles
The main benefit of JUVÉDERM® in Nashville is that it helps get rid of wrinkles and lines on your face. A trained professional injections JUVÉDERM®, which contains hyaluronic acid (naturally found in your body), into the problem areas of your face.
The solution not only works to smooth out wrinkles and lines, but it also hydrates your skin, giving you a fresher, rejuvenated look. The HA also helps rehydrate your skin and restore lost facial volume.
Unlike BOTOX®, JUVÉDERM actually fills in the areas where you’ve lost volume in your skin. In contrast, BOTOX® prevents wrinkles from appearing by inhibiting the nerves that cause wrinkles to form on your face.
It’s Safer Than Other Treatments
Some people resort to surgery to chase away the effects of time and gravity. While some procedures can be somewhat effective, JUVÉDERM® achieves great results without all the hassle of a surgical procedure. Unlike some dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM® is FDA-approved, safe and effective on all skin tones.
FAQs About JUVEDERM Dermal Fillers
To help you understand how JUVÉDERM treatments work, so you can decide if they’re right for you, we’ve answered the following questions for your benefit. If you have a question not answered here, or you’d like to learn more, schedule a consultation at Garza Plastic Surgery in Nashville.
How Does JUVEDERM Work?
Youthful, healthy-looking skin has an abundance of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally hydrating substance made by your body. Sun exposure and the natural aging process reduce the amount of HA in your skin, causing your skin to lose structure and volume. When this happens, those annoying wrinkles and folds appear. JUVÉDERM® replaces the lost HA in your skin, plumping up its volume and smoothing out wrinkles and folds.
ARE JUVEDERM FILLERS Safe?
JUVÉDERM® is safe and effective for most skin types. You can even use the product with other cosmetic procedures, such as BOTOX®, which we also offer to clients.
Specifically, the JUVÉDERM family of products is generally considered safe and is approved for the following treatments:
Correcting age-related loss of volume
Chin profile enhancement
Correcting mild to severe facial wrinkles
Filling in perioral lines (smoker’s lines)
Also, did you know that JUVÉDERM has been approved by the FDA for various uses since 2006? Its longevity and popularity are just another sign of how reliable this family of products is.

Most symptoms will fade within 48 hours of your treatment. Your face might also look a little more full than usual for the next couple of days, but that’s normal while your body is integrating the hyaluronic acid.

Am I A Good Candidate For JUVEDERM Fillers?

JUVÉDERM might not be right for you if any of the following apply to you:
You have excessive scarring (thick and hard scars) or pigmentation disorders (hyperpigmentation, melasma)
Are pregnant or are breastfeeding
You’re receiving immunosuppressive therapy
You take blood thinners, aspirin, or ibuprofen
You have facial hair
Be sure to talk to your provider to assess whether JUVÉDERM injections are right for you.
What If I’m Not Happy With My Results From Dermal Fillers?
Thankfully, because JUVÉDERM products are HA-based, you don’t have to live with results you don’t like. If you see any lumps, bumps, or unwanted fullness, a natural enzyme called hyaluronidase can be administered to break down the HA.
