Juvederm is a popular dermal filler used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin laxity. It is injected into the skin of the face, jawline, and neck using a fine needle. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm works to draw fluid to the injection site, adding volume and providing a filling effect that fills in wrinkles and lines. Results typically last for at least six months after treatment.
At his Miami practice, Dr. Shaun Patel uses FDA-approved fillers such as Juvederm UltraPlus, Restylane, Voluma, Volbella, Sculptra, Radiesse, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk. Juvederm Voluma XC is specifically designed to add volume and provide smoothing effects. Before a treatment with Juvederm, it is important to discuss your goals and aesthetic expectations with a medical professional.
Combination treatments with neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport) and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, Sculptra) are often used to address signs of aging and rejuvenate the face. Juvederm procedures are minimally invasive and can usually be performed on the same day as your appointment. The cost of a Juvederm treatment may vary depending on your doctor's experience, geographical location, and the number of syringes used. More serious side effects are usually associated with unprofessional handling, such as inadvertent injection of Juvederm into a blood vessel.
