As a natural process of aging, our faces show effects of gravity, sun exposure, and decades of facial movements 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 a 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, is unique in his profession as he performs all of the injectable treatments himself, a testament to his hands on approach to quality patient care. Producing results that can last up to 12 months, Juvéderm is primarily used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can also be used in conjunction with, BOTOX, microneedling or a chemical peel.
"I went to Dr. Williams for a dermal filler and Botox injections. He injected my lips and I have been obsessed with the results! For the first time, I'm not self conscious having pictures taken of me due to not being happy with my lips. My sister's have both had Botox injections with him also with amazing results. They recommended him to me. One of my sister's also had a mommy makeover with him after massive weightloss and was featured in a famous book that was just published at Barnes and Nobles with her results. It’s really cool! The procedures with Dr. Williams changed her entire life! It melts my heart seeing her finally post pictures of herself, dressing up for Halloween, doing things she never did before surgery. I plan on going to Dr. Williams for a tummy tuck, monsplasty, and breast augmentation myself ASAP and I can't wait because I’ve been dying to have that for myself too for years."- C.D. / Google / Sep 28, 2018
What to Expect with Juvéderm®
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. 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.
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 12-18 months before another round of injections are needed or desired.
