What Is Juvederm?

doctor prepares Juvederm facial injection for womanJuvederm is a smooth gel filler that significantly diminishes the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. Unlike the popular nerve-inhibitor BOTOX®, Juvederm’s unique formulation replaces hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the body to help your skin look firm and youthful. As you get older, your skin’s natural HA levels begin to subside, causing a loss of volume and structure that can result in deep lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth.

By injecting Juvederm into your skin and restoring your levels of HA, the appearance of wrinkles will naturally begin to fade. It is an excellent treatment option to:

  • Replenish lost volume in the cheeks
  • Fill in deep nasolabial folds
  • Add volume to lips
  • Treat small, vertical lines around the lips

The unique Juvederm formula looks and feels very soft and natural. Like other hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvederm treatment is reversible in the event of overcorrection or minor complications. This versatility provides Dr. Weichert with greater control over your final results and minimizes the risk of complications.

Your Juvederm Procedure

During your non-surgical treatment session, Juvederm will be injected into the targeted treatment areas by experienced dermatologist Dr. Weichert or board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Barnsley. With years of extensive training and clinical experience, Dr. Weichert understands the musculature and contours of the face and knows precisely how to soften lines and hollows.

You may experience slight pressure or mild discomfort, but these sensations will quickly subside. Your results should be immediately visible and they will continue to develop over the next few days. For most patients, results last between six and nine months, at which point a follow-up treatment is necessary to refresh your results.

How Much Does Juvederm Cost?

At Synergy Medical Aesthetics, the cost of each syringe of Juvederm ranges between $650 and $750. While treatment varies from patient to patient, a typical treatment session usually involves one to two syringes.
