Do you have any of these concerns about Jubeluk?

Hello, I am a doctor at Smart Skin Clinic.

JUVELUX has attracted attention as an injectable treatment that provides sustained skin regeneration with minimal side effects. While the benefits may be appealing, you may be concerned about the disadvantages.

In this article, a physician will explain the disadvantages of JUVELUX in simple terms.


Disadvantages of Jubeluk

What are some of the disadvantages of Jubeluk? Let's list some of the most common ones.

Pain during treatment.

During the Jubeluk procedure, there is a stinging pain from the needle.

The pain is not unbearable, although the feeling of pain varies from person to person. The application of an anesthetic cream in advance will help alleviate the pain.

Risk of infection.

As with other injection procedures, JUVELUX involves the insertion of a needle into the skin, which may result in infection from the wound.

As a general rule, medical institutions perform procedures under strict hygiene control. After the surgery, please keep the affected area clean and avoid touching the wound as much as possible.

If pain and swelling appear gradually and intensely, consult the clinic for possible infection.


Downtime for JUVELUX is slight, although it varies from person to person.

The downtime period is about 24 hours, and symptoms include redness, swelling, pain, edema, internal bleeding, and temporary bumps. If internal bleeding appears, it will gradually fade and disappear in 10-14 days.

There are precautions in life.

There are some lifestyle restrictions after the JUVELUX procedure, but they are fewer than those of other cosmetic treatments.

  • Bathing is not allowed on the same day (allowed from the following day)
  • Refrain from sauna for about a week.
  • Ensure moisturizing and UV protection.

Avoid activities that stimulate blood flow for about a week, moisturize and protect the treated area from UV rays as it is more delicate than usual, and keep towels, makeup tools, and other items that come in contact with the skin clean.

Takes time to become effective

Jubelq takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks to take effect.

As the preparation is absorbed into the skin, it stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen, which promotes skin regeneration over time. However, compared to physical volume enhancement, it is difficult to feel the effects immediately after the treatment.

Effects are not permanent.

The effects of JUVELUX are not permanent. The formulation is broken down in the body over a period of one to two years.

Conventional hyaluronic acid preparations are gradually absorbed and lose volume, but JUVELUX stimulates collagen production by stimulating fibroblasts during the degradation process, and thus longer-term effects can be expected.

The effects of Jubelq are not permanent, but its persistence was concluded in the following paper: "It lasted at least one year.

Requires regular treatment

Although JUVELUX can often provide a feeling of firmness and hydration even after just one session, we recommend regular treatments in order to experience significant changes.

For more effective results, it is recommended to have a set of three treatments at one-month intervals, followed by maintenance every six months to a year. The repeated treatments will help to sustain collagen production, and the effects are more likely to last for a long time.


JUVELUX is a cosmetic treatment and is therefore free. Pricing for free treatment varies from clinic to clinic, with some being expensive and others being inexpensive.

The total cost of treatment should be confirmed in advance, as each clinic has different fees for counseling, whether or not needle and anesthesia fees are included, and the cost of aftercare.

The treatment is a set of three sessions and maintenance is required. To ensure that the treatment is effective, it is also important to check whether the price is set at a level that is easy to continue.

Effects vary from person to person.

Although JUVELUX is expected to have various effects that lead to beautiful skin, the manifestation of the effects may vary from person to person, and the effects are not guaranteed. The ability to increase collagen produced in your own body depends on your physical condition.

In addition, the procedure is considered safe because it has been approved by the U.S. FDA and the Korean KFDA, but it is performed using a drug or medical device that has not been approved in Japan.

Advantages of Jubeluk

Jubeluk offers the following advantages

  • Local injections for customized treatment
  • Little to no downtime symptoms or restrictions in daily life
  • Fewer side effects and allergies
  • Less prone to lumps and inflammation
  • Longer effect duration

Because JUVELUX is performed manually by a physician, it is possible to treat the entire face as well as localized areas such as acne scars, pores around the eyes and nose, etc., according to your concerns.

Although there is some downtime, it is only 24 hours and the symptoms are mild. Therefore, it is an easy treatment for those who cannot afford long downtime.

The effect takes time to develop and is not permanent, but it is relatively durable.

In addition, JUVELUX has a circular reticular structure. Unlike the sharply shaped particles of conventional polylactic acid formulations such as Sculptra and MacComb, the risk of lumps and inflammation is reduced due to less irritation to the surrounding area.

Jubeluk demerit measures

Some disadvantages of Jubeluk can be reduced or avoided by applying countermeasures in advance. The following is a list of typical disadvantage countermeasures.

  • Select a reliable medical institution by checking the number of cases, infection control measures, and word of mouth.
  • Check the clinic's pain policy on its website or during a pre-consultation.
  • Check the "total cost of treatment" including counseling, consultation, needles, anesthesia, and aftercare.
  • Be sure to check the effects, downtime and risks.
  • Swelling and redness are reduced by cooling.
  • Avoid activities that stimulate blood flow or warm the body
  • Receive appropriate treatment intervals and frequency


Frequently asked questions about the disadvantages of Jubeluk are answered.

Is Jubeluk safe?

JUVELUX is an injectable formulation combining polylactic acid and non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid. It has excellent biocompatibility with the human body and is used in surgical sutures and vascular graft materials. It has been approved by the U.S. FDA and the Korean KFDA, and is considered to be relatively safe. However, it is not approved in Japan.

Polylactic acid is produced from extracts from corn, potatoes, and other starches and does not remain in the body after being broken down into water and carbon dioxide over a period of one to two years.

Are there any disadvantages of injecting Jubelq to get a lump?

Jubeluk is characterized by a low risk of lumps.

One cause of lumps with other injectables is that the shape and size of the injectable particles can cause overstimulation of surrounding cells. JUVELUX is made so that the particles are rounded, which reduces overstimulation of surrounding cells.
