Investing in Radiance: How Long Does JUVÉDERM® Last?

JUVÉDERM offers a comprehensive range of options, with six unique products that each enhance different facial areas. At South Jersey Aesthetics in Cape May Court House, NJ, we specialize in administering these fillers, producing results that look natural and fit each individual’s features.

While all JUVÉDERM fillers are designed to be long-lasting, the duration of effect can vary depending on the specific product used. We can help you choose the right filler for you based on your goals for longevity and aesthetics. 


JUVÉDERM is a series of dermal fillers used primarily to restore facial contours and improve signs of aging. The treatment involves gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to smooth lines, soften creases, and enhance facial features effectively. This versatility makes JUVÉDERM a preferred choice for those seeking a refreshed appearance through non-surgical means.

What Is the Active Ingredient in JUVÉDERM Products?

The primary component of JUVÉDERM filler is hyaluronic acid, which is a biocompatible substance that is known for its ability to attract and retain moisture and behave similarly to the body’s natural hyaluronic acid. This key ingredient restores facial volume, providing immediate results. Hyaluronic acid’s compatibility with the human body makes JUVÉDERM fillers suitable for many patients, and its temporary but long-lasting effects allow for flexibility in your aesthetic goals.

Different JUVÉDERM Formulations

  • VOLUMA® XC: JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is formulated for the cheek area, enhancing volume and contouring facial profiles. It uses Vycross™ technology, which combines low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, creating a more cohesive gel that provides durability and a smoother, more natural lift.
  • VOLLURE® XC: Designed for the correction of certain deeper lines such as nasolabial folds, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® XC features a balanced gel firmness and a lower cohesivity. This formulation allows it to integrate into the tissue where it’s injected, offering subtle and long-lasting results.
  • ULTRA PLUS XC: JUVÉDERM ULTRA PLUS XC is a robust formulation that is perfect for more pronounced facial wrinkles and folds. Its thicker, more viscous consistency allows it to tackle deeper lines and provide substantial volume enhancement, making it suitable for areas requiring a significant lift.
  • VOLBELLA® XC: JUVÉDERM lip filler VOLBELLA XC is specifically developed for lip augmentation and the correction of perioral lines. It also uses Vycross technology to deliver a smooth, soft consistency that integrates well with the delicate lip tissue, providing subtle volume and reducing lines with lasting effects.
  • ULTRA XC: The JUVÉDERM lips product known as ULTRA XC is formulated for versatility in lip enhancement, adding more fullness to the lips while smoothing the perioral area.
  • VOLUX® XC: The newest addition, JUVÉDERM VOLUX® XC, is perfect for sculpting and defining the jawline and chin area. This formulation provides a firmer gel that can create sharp, defined contours and is engineered to withstand the dynamic movements of the lower face, offering durable results.

How Long Does JUVÉDERM Last? 

The duration of JUVÉDERM’s effects can vary widely depending on the specific formulation used and the area treated. Generally, the results can last from six months to two years. Even with the same product, not everyone responds the same to JUVÉDERM. Different factors can determine how long each product lasts, so maintenance treatments will be determined between you and your injector.

What Can Influence Longevity? 

Hyaluronic Acid Concentration

The concentration of hyaluronic acid in a filler can impact how long the results last. Higher concentrations often yield longer-lasting effects, as the denser gel resists quicker absorption by the body.

Cross-Linking Technology

Cross-linking technology in JUVÉDERM treatment enhances the durability of the filler. This process links the hyaluronic acid chains, forming a stable, cohesive gel that degrades more slowly, extending the life of the treatment in the treated areas.

Patient Factors

Individual factors such as age, skin quality, and overall health influence the longevity of JUVÉDERM results. Active lifestyles and faster metabolisms can accelerate the breakdown of the filler, necessitating more frequent touch-ups to maintain results.

Area of Injection

The area where JUVÉDERM lip filler is injected also affects its longevity. Fillers in high-movement areas like the lips may break down faster due to the dynamic nature of the expressions and frequent use of the muscles around the mouth.

How to Increase JUVÉDERM Longevity

Best Practices for Before and After Care

Optimal before and after care can enhance the longevity of JUVÉDERM results. Prior to treatment, avoid medications that can increase bruising, such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Post-treatment, patients should minimize exposure to extreme temperatures and rigorous physical activity for at least 24 hours to help the filler settle properly.

Importance of Follow-Up Sessions

Scheduling follow-up sessions will help you keep the desired effects of the JUVÉDERM filler for longer. These sessions allow the provider to assess the filler’s performance and add touch-ups if desired, helping to extend the filler’s life and refine the results.

The Role of Skincare in Extending Filler Life

Maintaining a diligent skincare regimen can prolong the effects of facial fillers. Hydration is key; using products that help retain skin moisture can create a supportive environment that slows down the degradation of the filler. Protecting the skin from sun exposure with high SPF sunscreens can prevent premature aging and maintain filler integrity.

A Timeline of Results

Immediate Effects

After receiving a JUVÉDERM injection, patients often notice an instant improvement in the treated area. The gel filler smooths wrinkles and restores volume immediately, offering a visible enhancement that continues to settle over the next few days.

The Evolving Results of JUVÉDERM

The results of a JUVÉDERM treatment continue to evolve over the initial weeks. As the hyaluronic acid integrates with the skin’s natural structure, it attracts moisture, which helps to further volumize and smooth the skin.

When to Schedule Maintenance Sessions

Maintenance sessions for JUVÉDERM should be scheduled based on the individual’s response to the filler and the natural metabolic rate of their body, which influences how long the effects last. Generally, follow-up appointments are recommended every six to 12 months to preserve the desired aesthetic outcome.
