Overview

As a natural process of aging, our faces show effects of gravity, sun exposure, and decades of facial movement, such as smiling and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep the skin looking young begin to break down, leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow's feet, and facial creases. Soft tissue fillers like Juvéderm can help fill these lines and creases or add fullness to the lips or cheeks, creating a smooth, youthful appearance. Juvéderm is another popular injectable filler used at our Scottsdale, AZ plastic surgery office. Comprised of hyaluronic acid, a natural and valuable component found in the skin that depletes as we age, Juvéderm adds volume where this depletion is noticeable.

Once injected, the surface of the skin looks fuller, smoother, and softer. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, uses Juvéderm to treat areas where wrinkles reside closely together. This is because once injected, Juvéderm tends to spread beyond the actual injection site. Producing results that can last up to 9 months, Juvéderm is primarily used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with a chemical peel, Dr. Williams performs all facial injections himself, usually after injecting a local anesthetic to make the procedure virtually painless.

What to Expect

Juvéderm is performed during an in-office appointment. Prior to receiving the injection, an assessment will be made as to where the injections will go, and how much of the medication (number of syringes) is needed to produce the desired results. During the appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked with ink and a numbing cream will be applied to help with any discomfort. As the solution is injected into the skin, the surgeon will massage the area so that the medication diffuses and spreads evenly. Cold compresses are then applied to help with swelling.

Juvéderm Recovery

After a Juvéderm treatment, patients can return to work, but exercise or strenuous activity should be avoided for about 24 hours. The injections sites will appear red and swollen, but this goes away within a couple of hours. Some patients may bruise, but this is also temporary. The visible results after the injections are noticed immediately. The results will last for about 6-9 months before another round of injections are needed or desired.

Look Younger Today

Fillers, such as Juvéderm, are a fantastic way to turn back the hands of time, adding volume to the face and creating a smooth and softer facial appearance. Our plastic surgery office offers two types of Juvéderm: Juvéderm XC, which treats moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth and nose, and Juvéderm Voluma XC, which is typically used to add volume to the cheeks. During the initial consultation, we will discuss both products and provide a thorough skin assessment so that we can tailor the best treatment to meet your aesthetic goals. We invite you to call our office today to learn more.
