What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is in the family of dermal fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that is produced naturally by your body to maintain skin health. Hyaluronic acid has the unique characteristic of binding with water, a process that adds volume and hydration to the skin. Juvéderm® replenishes the hyaluronic acid that is lost as part of the natural aging process. The treatment is recommended for nasolabial folds, creases that develop from the outside of the nostrils to the corners of the mouth. Dr. Hueneke may recommend Juvéderm® for other types of wrinkles as well.
The hyaluronic acid is suspended in a gel that is deposited into the layers of skin via injections. The gel gives the skin an immediate lift, giving the hyaluronic acid time to bind with water molecules.
What is the Cost of Juvéderm®?
The average cost of Juvéderm® is $700 per unit, although this does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for Juvéderm® at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What Are the Benefits of Juvéderm®?
- Direct injections work more effectively than hyaluronic acid skin care products that do not penetrate the skin
- No surgery required
- Immediate results
- Anti-aging benefits for several months or longer
- Does not produce scarring
What is the Recovery Time for Juvéderm®?
After your Juvéderm® treatment, you can resume your day. No downtime is needed. Some patients notice that the tissue around the injection sites is slightly bruised, swollen and tender for the first 24 to 48 hours. You should not rub or press on the treatment area, as this may cause the gel to disperse to surrounding tissues and cause an inconsistent improvement to your wrinkles.
