If you are looking for a way to simultaneously restore facial volume and eliminate lines and wrinkles, Juvéderm® may be an ideal treatment for you.

What is Juvéderm®?
Juvéderm® is a family of dermal filler products that are composed of hyaluronic acid. Thanks to hyaluronic acid, the unique Juvéderm® formula is able to smooth out deep facial wrinkles and folds while adding natural-looking volume for beautiful results. There are several Juvéderm® products available, each of which is designed for a specific area of the face. Patients can use Juvéderm® to produce the following benefits:
- Lift the cheeks
- Smooth out parentheses lines
- Enhance lip shape and volume
- Reduce fine lines around the mouth
- Enhance facial volume
How Much Does Juvéderm® Cost?
The cost of your Juvéderm® treatment will vary depending on your desired results and the extent of treatment required to produce those results. During your consultation, you and Dr. Volshteyn will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the best approach to your Juvéderm® treatment. Once your treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment. To learn more about what you can expect and how you can pay for your treatment, please refer to our page on plastic surgery financing.
What is the Juvéderm® Treatment Like?
Before your Juvéderm® treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin in order to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. The Juvéderm® formula also contains lidocaine, a local numbing agent, which helps to further minimize discomfort. Once the skin is adequately numbed, injections will be performed in and around the desired treatment area. The number of injections required will depend on your individual cosmetic goals. The injection process takes only a few minutes, meaning that the entire Juvéderm® treatment takes less than 30 minutes. This makes it a convenient solution for patients with a busy schedule or for those who are trying to squeeze in a cosmetic treatment during their lunch break.
Is There Any Downtime After the Juvéderm® Treatment?
Juvéderm®, like other dermal filler and injectable treatments, requires absolutely no downtime or recovery period. In fact, you will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. Patients can expect minor swelling, bruising or redness in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a day or two.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Juvéderm®?
The results from Juvéderm® are visible instantly. You will notice a reduction in facial wrinkles and enhanced facial volume immediately upon injection. These results will improve further as any side effects from treatment fade. The duration of your Juvéderm® results will depend on the product used, but most patients enjoy results that last between one and two years.
