Rachel Dahlen Aesthetics is proud to offer Juvederm and Restylane, two of the most trusted and effective injectable dermal fillers on the market. Both Juvederm and Restylane are made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body, making them safe and reliable treatment options for many patients. We use these fillers to enhance facial features, smooth out wrinkles, and restore volume to the face. Juvederm and Restylane can be used to provide full facial rejuvenation, including the cheeks, lips, and under-eye area. They can also be used to fill in marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and reshape the chin and jawline. At Rachel Dahlen Aesthetics, we customize each treatment to meet the unique needs and goals of our patients. During your complimentary consultation, we will discuss your options, risks, benefits, and expectations to ensure you receive the best possible outcome. With Juvederm and Restylane, you can achieve a more youthful, vibrant, and balanced appearance.


Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid that is a sugar naturally found in our bodies and can last 6-24 months depending on the product used, areas treated, and the individual’s metabolism. There are risks to dermal filler such as blindness, asymmetry, tissue death, lumps, bumps, and bruising.



Juvederm is injected in ways to support your face. Each filler has a unique personality and the product selected will be chosen carefully to achieve the best result for the areas being treated. The ultimate goal is a refreshed look that moves naturally with all facial expressions.



Bruising is not uncommon, and one should avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours post treatment. There can be some temporary discomfort to the treatment areas and swelling that can last 1-2 weeks. Cold compresses can aid in swelling post-treatment.

Juvederm/Restylane FAQ’s

What Is Juvederm?


Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid, a sugar naturally found in the body. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are a clear sterile gel in a syringe for injection into the skin, providing instant correction. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration while also ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen and elastin fibers, and acting as a medium for chemical messages between cells.


What is Recovery Like After Juvederm?


One of the advantages of dermal fillers at Rachel Dahlen Aesthetics is minimal downtime with little recovery. For the first 24 hours, you should avoid exercising, hot tubs, saunas, intense exercise, air travel, and the use of skincare products or makeup. Juvederm is placed using a series of injection sites, which can introduce bacteria, so to avoid complications or infection, you must keep the area clean. This can be achieved with a simple cleansing using soap and water.

The effects of Juvederm will be noticeable immediately, as it has the consistency of hair gel. Common reactions to any dermal filler include swelling, bruising, and settling of the product. These side effects are minor and resolve within a few days. The morning after treatment is typically when swelling is the worst. To aid in recovery, drink plenty of water, sleep elevated, and use ice on and off on treatment day.

After 28 days, Juvederm will have integrated with your natural tissue and any lumps or bumps that you were able to feel will have resolved. These bumps should not be visible, but it is not uncommon to feel them until the full integration occurs.


Are There Any Alternatives to Juvederm?


At Rachel Dahlen Aesthetics, we understand that Juvederm cannot provide a facelift-like result. If that is your desired outcome, we will refer you to a facial plastic surgeon. Other alternatives to Juvederm include Restylane, Sculptra, and Radiesse, which are also dermal fillers with different properties and purposes. The most suitable option for your specific needs will be determined during your complimentary consultation at Rachel Dahlen Aesthetics.
