Advantages and Disadvantages of Juvederm

Juvederm is another option when you are looking to reduce those fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Similar to other dermal fillers, it sets itself apart from many because it is made from a natural substance: cross-linked hyaluronic acid.

The procedure itself is safe and simple, requiring a simple injection in the area to be treated, but as with any dermal filler, there are advantages and disadvantages with Juvederm for you to consider.


  • Approved for all skin types
  • Procedure time is short; injections only take about 15 minutes
  • You can resume normal activities immediately, as long as you use sunscreen; there is no recovery time involved
  • Known to have a more natural look and effect on wrinkles than other dermal fillers that consist of collagen
  • Results can be as dramatic as those seen with surgery without the risks associated with surgery
  • Lasts longer than many other fillers
  • Can be accompanied by skin treatments, such as microdermabrasion and even Laser resurfacing

  • Cost for the procedure can be expensive, with the average price being $741 per treatment
  • Results only last between 6 months to a year, depending on which type of Juvederm you choose
  • Can only be used on very specific parts of the face, as it is not meant for use on areas of the face that have thick skin
