What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler that diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of scars, smooths your face, and enhances facial fullness. Wilson Plastic Surgery offers Juvederm in Scottsdale, Gilbert, and Chandler, AZ, to reverse the signs of aging and enhance facial features.

Dermal filler injections are regarded as safe and beneficial when administered by highly trained medical professionals. Dr. Wesley G. Wilson is board-certified and highly experienced in this cosmetic procedure. At Wilson Plastic Surgery, you get Dr. Wilson doing the injections, not a nurse or aesthetician.


How do Juvederm dermal filler treatments work?

Juvederm injections contain hyaluronic acid that has a gel-like consistency. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by our bodies. It stimulates the growth of connective tissue known as collagen that naturally declines as we age.

Heredity, sun exposure, and lifestyle can accelerate the deterioration of your skin. Stimulating collagen production is key to restoring a youthful facial appearance, giving it a fuller, plumper, smoother, softer, and more moisturized look. Dermal fillers are considered temporary procedures that require ongoing treatments to optimize and prolong results.

Preparing for your Juvederm treatment

The procedure doesn’t need much preparation. You will need to suspend the use of any medications or supplements that can elevate bleeding, such as aspirin. Smoking before your treatment is ill-advised. Be sure to let your doctor know of any allergies or sensitivities you have.


The Juvederm line of dermal filler products

Juvederm treatment typically focuses on your cheeks, lips, and the areas around your nose and mouth. It can also correct acne scars and reverse signs of facial fat loss. Juvederm injections have three main types:

  • Juvederm Voluma XC: Adds volume to your skin to boost the size of your cheeks
  • Juvederm XC and Juvederm Vollure XC Fill out wrinkles around the mouth and nose
  • Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella XC Serves as non-surgical lip enhancers

During your consultation, we will help you decide which injectable or combination of injectables is right for you.


Juvederm Procedure

Juvederm is minimally invasive, so injections can often be done on the same day as your consultation. Your doctor will use a pen to mark treatment areas. Using a tiny needle, we will inject Juvederm into target areas. The injection formula contains a small amount of lidocaine, which will minimize any discomfort you might feel. The procedure usually takes between 15 minutes and an hour.


Juvederm Recovery

Recovery time is minimal. But you should avoid strenuous activity for at least a day after treatment, along with staying out of the sun, wearing makeup, and consuming alcohol for that same period.

Juvederm Results

Initial results are often noticeable immediately following your procedure and will improve over a period of weeks. While results can last up to two years, it is important to remember that Juvederm will require periodic re-treatments to optimize and extend your results.

Juvederm FAQs

Minimally invasive and temporary treatments cannot achieve the extensive and longer-lasting results of surgical procedures such as facelift, brow lift, or eyelift. Discuss your goals and options with your doctor.

Juvederm is considered a very safe procedure, but only when injections are performed by a trained medical professional using FDA-approved products. Never consider injecting yourself or letting a friend or acquaintance inject you. Juvederm is not safe to enhance breast or buttock size and should never be injected into bones, tendons, ligaments, or muscles.

The most serious risk is the unintentional injection of a dermal filler into a blood vessel, which can be fatal. Again, this procedure is safe, but only in the hands of a skilled and experienced doctor. Injections have been linked to long-term pain, infections, and disfigurements. Some dermal patients will experience temporary side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection sites. These symptoms resolve within a few weeks. Dermal filler injections should always be postponed until any infected or inflamed skin has resolved.

The cost of your Juvederm treatment will vary according to the number and sites of your injections. Since Juvederm treatment is generally a cosmetic procedure, your medical insurance will not pay for it.

The selection of your surgeon is important in having aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery and obtaining the best results. When you choose Dr. Wilson at Wilson Plastic Surgery Center in Mesa and Scottsdale, you are choosing a dedicated, experienced professional who believes in giving you the results you want.
