If you’ve never experienced all of the benefits of dermal fillers, you may be hesitant to add them to your skincare routine. However, once you experience what cosmetic injectables can do for you, you will never look back. At Miia Medspa in Rowley, MA, we offer Juvederm injections, a popular collection of dermal fillers designed to restore volume to the face, enhance the features, and make you look and feel beautiful.
How Often Should You Get Juvederm Injections?
After your initial treatment, and once you get the results you were hoping for, you should get Juvederm injections as soon as you notice that those results are beginning to fade. For some people, this will be sooner than for others who may enjoy their results for longer. How long your results last all depends on how quickly your body metabolizes the ingredients.
During your initial consultation with one of our experienced injectors, you will receive a treatment plan that best suits your needs. Your injector will be able to let you know how many initial injections you will need to get the best results. They will also be able to give you an idea of how often and when you should come in for follow-up treatments to experience the best results.
The Factors That Effect How Long Your Results Last
Certain factors affect just how long (or short) a period of time that your Juvederm injections results will last. An understanding of how these factors play a role in your results will help you know what to expect post-treatment. When you know how your body responds to the dermal fillers, you can schedule your follow-up treatments accordingly to avoid any significant change in your appearance.
A fast metabolize is something that many people wish for, yet when it comes to dermal fillers, it acts as a disadvantage. Those with fast metabolisms will metabolize the ingredients in dermal fillers much faster than those with a slow or average metabolism. There’s not much you can do if you’ve been genetically gifted with a high metabolism when it comes to extending your dermal filler results.
If you have a fast metabolism, all you can do is work with what you have and schedule your treatments according to your body and how it works so that you can maintain your results. As soon as you notice that your results are beginning to fade, you can schedule your next treatment to experience the most consistent results.
Your Exercise Routine
It’s a well-known fact that intense, strenuous exercise directly correlates to how quickly your body metabolizes the ingredients in dermal fillers. That means the more you exercise, the less likely you are to experience the maximum length of results post-injection.
One way to address this is to tone down your workouts. If you can’t or don’t want to change your workouts, you will just need to schedule your treatments accordingly to maintain your results.
Your Stress Levels
Cortisol production rises when you are stressed. Elevated levels of cortisol not only dramatically speed the aging process, but can lead to the premature breakdown of dermal fillers. To get the best and longest-lasting results from your injections, avoid stress as much as possible.
Implement self-care activities into your daily or weekly life so that you can manage your stress levels and keep your results for as long as possible.
What Is Juvederm?
Juvederm injections is a collection of dermal fillers made of a crystal clear gel composed of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid that closely matches that which the body produces naturally. Different formulations have different particle sizes to meet different needs. Some formulations add volume to the face, others plump the lips and smooth out lip lines, and others fill in lines and wrinkles.
What Can It Treat?
At our office, we use these dermal fillers to smooth out mild to moderate lines and wrinkles, augment the lips, fill in hollow areas under the eyes, improve the appearance of acne scars, and enhance and contour the cheeks.
There are formulations in this family of fillers specifically designed to treat the cheeks, the lips, the chin, and lines and wrinkles that form as a result of volume loss. At our office, we offer Juvederm injections formulations that can improve your appearance in different ways based on your specific needs.
Soften Your Smile
Your smile should be a focal point on your face, not the lines that form around it. At Miia Medspa, we want to help make your smile as beautiful as possible, which is why we use Vollure to soften the smile.
This formulation is injected into the face where moderate to severe wrinkles and folds exist to smooth the area. It helps treat smile lines, the lines that run from the outer corners of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth, including parenthesis lines.
Get Glamorous Lips
If you want to add some glam to your lips but want it to be subtle, you can do it with Volbella. This dermal filler is created with particle sizes that are specifically designed to augment the lips.
With this formulation, we can help you get glamorous lips that look natural and enhance your natural lips. Additionally, this dermal filler can smooth perioral lines, which are the vertical lines that form around the mouth due to the aging process.
Plump Up Your Lips
If your lips are thin due to genetics, or they have thinned as a result of the aging process, the Ultra Plus formulation will increase the fullness of your lips.
This injectable gel can soften and smooth your lips and enhance their appearance. Whether you want to smooth out your lips or make them fuller, we can customize this formulation to meet your aesthetic goals.
Refresh Your Cheeks
This dermal filler is injected just beneath the surface of the skin and creates a natural-looking, youthful appearance that is defined by smoothness. After being treated with this injectable, you will get sculpted and contoured cheeks. Once you see the difference that this injectable can make in your cheeks, you will wonder how you ever lived so long without it.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
The benefit of these dermal fillers is that results are immediate. Immediately following your injection, you will notice an improvement in the appearance of your problem areas.
Your results will continue to improve in the days and the weeks following your initial treatment as any swelling at the injection site subsides, and as the ingredients in the filler settle into your skin and reach a state of optimal smoothness.
How Long Do Results Last?
Different formulations provide different length results, but all of these dermal fillers are long-lasting. They last anywhere from one to two years total, so you can enjoy youthful skin for one to two whole calendar years.

Is There Any Downtime?
Who Is It Right For?
A common misconception among those who have never experienced dermal fillers is that they are only designed for those who have begun to see the signs of aging. While this is true, these fillers are also effective solutions for those who want to enhance different areas on their face. Those who want to restore volume to their face can do so with different fillers from this collection.
A Different Formulation for Every Need
They can also smooth out lines and wrinkles that have developed due to aging and regain their youthful appearance. Additionally, there are dermal fillers within this collection that can help enhance the features. Those who want fuller lips make good candidates for these fillers.
Those who want to sculpt their cheeks to improve their appearance can do so, and those who want to enhance their profile by adding subtle changes to their chin can finally reach their aesthetic goals with a filler from this collection.
Consultations Are Important
Because different formulations can treat the same area of the face, scheduling a consultation with an experienced injector is an important first step in the process. An experienced injector will know these fillers inside and out and will be able to analyze your problem areas and determine which formulation will meet your needs and help you reach your goals.
The Best Candidates
The best candidates for these fillers are adults over the age of 21 who are in good health and are not allergic to any of the ingredients within these injectables. During your initial consultation, we will review your health history and discuss your goals and answer any questions you may have regarding these dermal fillers so that you know exactly what to expect during and after your treatment.
