Sun exposure, hormonal changes, and aging can all have an impact on your skin’s appearance. Over time, your skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of fullness and elasticity. Our healthcare professionals at Pure Rejuvenation Anti Aging & Laser Clinic can now reverse these signs of aging by correcting the wrinkles and folds and adding volume to sunken skins. JUVÉDERM® facial fillers are injectable treatments that can shape and contour specific features-with results that can last for up to 24 months, depending on the treatment area. JUVÉDERM® adds volume to specific areas of the face, lifting the cheeks, smoothing lines and plumping lips. Many JUVÉDERM® facial fillers include lidocaine which can help reduce discomfort during the procedure. The range is designed to treat different areas of the face, and visible results can be seen shortly after treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body that maintains the moisture in our skin by binding with water molecules. It’s found in many human tissues including connective tissues and fluid around the joints, but approximately 50% is found in our skin.
HA facial fillers contain a manufactured form of hyaluronic acid. They are injected directly into the skin and can reduce the signs of aging. They can also add volume, to either restore volume lost over time or to provide enhancement. As we age, our skin renews itself more slowly. A dramatic loss of HA from specific layers of the skin can be seen in aged skin as well a loss of collagen and elastin, all of which can result in dry, thin skin and the appearance of wrinkles and folds. HA fillers can add lasting, albeit temporary, moisture to the skin.
JUVÉDERM® is a range designed to treat different areas of the face, depending on the results you’d like to achieve. Your healthcare practitioner will work with you to identify the right JUVÉDERM® for you and tell you more about how they can be used to smooth lines and wrinkles, add volume and enhance or define facial features.
During the treatment, your healthcare professional will inject JUVÉDERM® under your skin to enhance facial features or fill wrinkles and folds. For the first 12 hours after treatment, you should avoid:
- applying makeup
For two weeks after treatment, you should avoid:
- prolonged exposure to the sun or UV rays
- temperatures below 0°C
- any sauna, steam rooms, or hammam session
For a few days after a JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA treatment, you should avoid:

Depending on the treatment chosen, JUVÉDERM® facial fillers can help REFRESH your look by:
- Softening the lines around your eyes
- Lifting and projecting your eyebrows
- Improving your under-eye area
- Adding volume to your temples
- Adding volume to lift your cheeks for a more defined look
- Softening and smoothing marionette lines
- Adding volume and definition to your lips
- Contouring your chin and jawline
Results with JUVÉDERM can last up to 9–24 months, depending on the particular JUVÉDERM® filler and the areas treated. JUVÉDERM® filler treatments are temporary and so you will need retreatment. If you decide not to have any more treatment, it will naturally be absorbed into your body, and the effects will fade away.
Prior to the treatment, you’ll spend some time consulting with your healthcare professional. The actual injection process is quick and easy and takes only about 15 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas treated.
Results are instant. You will see an immediate improvement to the treated area.
The price of each treatment varies according to the area being treated and the volume of product needed to achieve the desired effect. At Pure Rejuvenation Anti Aging & Laser Clinic, your healthcare practitioner will work with you to create a customized treatment plan based on your own unique aesthetic goals and advise you on recommended treatment options and their costs.
As with any injection, there may be pain at the injection site. JUVÉDERM® is injected directly into the skin using a fine needle to reduce injection discomfort. Because JUVÉDERM® is also available with pain-reducing lidocaine, the injection process is a more comfortable experience with patients reposting no to mild pain.
JUVÉDERM® is generally well tolerated. Side effects are generally mild to moderate and may include temporary skin reactions such as redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising at the site of injection. These reactions may occur immediately or may be delayed, and can last for up to a week. Injection in the lip may cause more swelling and bruising due to the unique physiology of this area. As with any injection, there is a risk of infection. This is not a complete list of side effects. If inflammatory reactions persist for more than one week, or if any other side effects develop, seek medical attention as soon as possible. You healthcare professional will advise you on your post-treatment care and when you can resume your normal activity. You can also refer to Safety Information provided at https://www.juvederm.ca/en/
