We all want to age gracefully, and Juvederm is a facial filler that can help to plump up the areas that lose volume with age. These spots include the lines on each side of the nose, the cheeks and the mouth corners around the lips. Juvederm is more a case of putting back something the body has lost, which is hyaluronic acid. Here is what you can expect before and after it.

The Consultation

You need to tell us everything you don’t like about the changes in your face; the ones you feel drag down the look of your face. We often make minor adjustments to the muscles in our faces when we stand in front of the mirror. However, when we take pictures, you may not see the flattering look you are accustomed to. The nasolabial lines and tear troughs can make you feel old, but Juvederm provides support by plumping up the tissues beneath the skin.

The Procedure

Juvederm is available in different formulas, and the choice is dependent on the face region, among other factors. A watery version suits areas where more movement is required, whereas the less pliable one is usually injected in regions that need more structure. Our experts can make sure that the results are symmetrical and natural.

You need to avoid exercising for the next 24 hours after the procedure. However, other than making some minor adjustments like this, there’s virtually no downtime following a facial filler appointment.


The hyaluronic acid lasts for between nine months to a year, but we recommend that you top it off once you start noticing the results fade. This practice can give continuity to your look before it completely wears off.

It is critical that you find a fully qualified practitioner who has experience. Do you need a younger, refreshed, and a perfectly natural look? At Grossman Dermatology in Santa Monica and NYC, we aim to give you just that. Contact us today to book a consultation and learn more about a facial filler treatment with Juvederm.
