32 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

If a patient is looking for a noninvasive facial rejuvenation treatment, he or she has to look no further than Juvederm. This FDA-approved dermal filler is used to replenish lost facial volume, as well as smooth lines and wrinkles. Comprised of a naturally occurring substance in the body, hyaluronic acid, results are safe, effective and consistent. Doctor Chan also offers Juvederm Ultra, which specifically targets the lines between the nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds. Ultra diminishes moderate to severe lines to provide a rejuvenated, more youthful look for up to 6 months.

What to Expect

Juvederm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvederm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.

Juvederm FAQs

How Painful?

This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.

Anti-Aging Alternative?

Derma fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX and Dysport. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.

Back to 20?

It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvederm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
