Overview

Injectable filler products are commonly used to fill in hollow areas on the face where volume under the skin once existed. Juvederm, specifically, is a popular filler that is manufactured from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. When injected into the skin, it adds fullness, which helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to create a smoother, brighter appearance. San Antonio plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Decherd, is proud to offer Juvederm to area patients. He provides Juvederm Voluma, which works great for adding volume to the cheeks, as well as Juvederm XC, which is used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles around the mouth and nose. 

Conditions Treated by Juvederm

Juvederm is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Severe wrinkles and facial folds
  • “Parentheses lines” or nasolabial folds
  • Droopy or hollow cheeks
  • Thin lips with lines

Procedure Technique

Juvederm is administered through a fine needle right in Dr. Decherd’s office. Prior to treatment, the face will be cleansed thoroughly, and he will use ink to mark the spots where the injections will go. A numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The treated areas will be red and slightly swollen, but these effects go away after several hours. Patients can resume normal activities, but should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours.

Juvederm FAQs

How Painful?

Juvederm injections are pretty much pain-free. Patients will wait a few minutes while a numbing cream settles on the skin to help with the injections. Soft, cold compressions will be placed on the injection sites to help settle the small sting caused by the needle.

Anti-Aging Alternatives?

Injectable fillers have changed the cosmetic surgery market, with more patients than ever before choosing this nonsurgical alternative for reducing the signs of aging. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX and Dysport. It is common to combine fillers with wrinkle relaxers for optimal results. Patients with severe wrinkles and lines may need to consider a surgical approach for treatment such as a facelift, browlift or cheeklift. All of these can be discussed during the consultation.

Is It Safe?

Juvederm is approved by the FDA. It has been proven to be safe and effective and is used for cosmetic purposes with results lasting for up to a full year.

What Does This Cost?

Juvederm is injected by syringe. One full syringe usually averages about $400. Some sessions may take 2-3 syringes, whereas some patients may only need a single syringe of the product. The final cost of treatment will depend on how many syringes of the product were used. Another factor to consider in the overall cost is that this treatment must be repeated after a year as the body will naturally reabsorb Juvederm over time.
