"This was an outstanding experience! The price was right! Appointment scheduling was painless! No wait in the waiting room! Very friendly staff! Excellent, excellent doctor! I have had Botox several places around town and I have to say I think this was the best! I was so comfortable with Dr. Lou I decided to get Juvederm also and it was reasonably priced, Dr. Lou was very patient with me as I asked questions and took his time to figure out the best way to provide the service. Prior to this experience I have had lots of bruising - I had none with Dr. Lou! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Was feeling old and needed to lift my spirits as well as my wrinkles!!"- B.H. / Office Visit / Feb 07, 2014
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm treatments, on average, only last around 15 – 30 minutes based on the number of areas being treated. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be marked. To minimize discomfort throughout the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Following your procedure, you can resume your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, like exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your injections to prevent moving the filler into unintended areas.
You should see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm treatment, but you could also see light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm injections typically last as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after a few years of injections. Talk to Dr. Lou about how soon to schedule your next treatment at Lou Plastic Surgery to maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your injection treatment, a personalized injection plan will be created to match your aesthetic goals. Once this is done, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Though many patients don't think it's needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you're concerned about any discomfort. After the injection, you might experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should subside within a week. Please contact Lou Plastic Surgery if you have any severe discomfort or signs of an infection following your Juvéderm injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers address facial wrinkles but in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles created by frequent muscle movements. Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that improves static wrinkles and adds volume. Juvéderm is ideal for treating mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait a few days to view the complete improvements from your Juvéderm injections. Typically, it takes only one treatment appointment to reach your desired outcome. However, you may make a follow-up appointment if you want to improve your results.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower, depending on the speed at which your body absorbs the filler.
