"Dr. Lou was great! He completely put me at ease. I had something done that I thought would be more complicated. He explained the procedure and said it could be done in his office in a 30 minute time span. So easy! Now I regret waiting so long."- A. / Healthgrades / Jan 10, 2019
"Dr. Lou and Erica are simply amazing! Dr. Lou is not only a very talented surgeon he is a very patient, nice, and comforting Dr. Him and Erica never made me feel rushed or like I was asking too many questions and made me feel completely comfortable, I love them and am forever grateful to them for changing my life. Allie has been wonderful with post op treatments as well, could not ask for a better team than Lou Plastic Surgery!"- S.H. / Google / Oct 16, 2019
"Dr. Lou and his team are absolutely phenomenal and were God sent. I'd previously considered another surgeon for my procedure but didn't feel quite comfortable with him. So, I searched my insurance portal, and found Dr. Lou. I respect how he believes in knowing exactly what he's going into before a surgical procedure. Therefore, I was scheduled to have several CAT scans done before cutting into the unknown. He was very attentive during my healing process, and even came to my aid on Christmas day to check on me. His right hand person/office manager, Erica is more kind than I can express! She assured me that everything would go as planned, and ALWAYS greeted me with a smile....she even took out time to listen to me speak about my past moments of depression due to my displeasure with my body. What more can I say? Dr. Lou is an absolutely AMAZING and extremely CARING surgeon!! I'd choose this practice all over again if need be."- C.Y. / Google / Oct 12, 2019
"I saw Dr. Lou for a second opinion after an incident involving my thumb. There's a long story behind how the injury got so bad, but finding Dr. Lou was the best thing that ever happened to me. I only wish I had known him at the onset of this ordeal. The day before I met Dr. Lou, another doctor (at a clinic) was trying to convince me to go into emergency surgery to open my thumb up for what they said was infected very badly. Turns out, there was no infection at all, which was exactly what Dr. Lou confirmed before the results even came back. Dr. Lou is the best in my opinion. A doctor has to be able to listen (and there was a lot of background to give him), have compassion for the patient (which I was totally convinced he cared about me, what I was going through and my fears) and still provide the best solution for the problem. He had to clean up (cut) my thumb pretty good (and by good - it wasn't pretty, but I felt nothing b/c I was numb), but I immediately started the down road to recovery which no other doctor (I had seen 3 already) could get me to. It's because of Dr. Lou and his staff that I write this long review. I haven't experienced anything this traumatic in my adult life! Some people would say "it's just a thumb"...but you don't realize how much you need a thumb until it's almost gone! I'm almost 100% healed and Dr. Lou and his nurses have guided me every step of the way. They make you feel like family and you just don't get better than that these days! Thank you for everything Dr. Lou, Erika and Allie!"- K.M. / Google / Oct 11, 2019
"I wanted to write a review to thank Erika for helping me arranged my appointment with Dr. Lou to get some injections done. She helped me iron out some questions I had about the injectable products. I've been going to Dr. Lou for over a year now and his work is superior and he really provides excellent patient care. I definitely recommend Dr. Lou for all cosmetic needs whether it's small or large. Remember to ask for Erika when you call to book your appointment."- A.H. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
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.
What to Expect
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
