Juvederm™ is an easy, fast, and long lasting treatment that achieves natural-looking results. This FDA-approved facial filler is used to soften the lines around your mouth, particularly the nasolabial folds or creases running from your nose to the sides of your mouth. It can also be injected into the lips for a fuller look. When compared to other procedures such as face lifts, Juvederm offers the following benefits
Juvederm is a gel made from hyaluronic acid, a protein that’s already present in our body. When your doctor injects the Juvederm filler under your skin, it bonds with this protein and settles in your cell walls, giving your skin a smooth, natural look. The great news about Juvederm is that it is simple, nonsurgical, and delivers almost instant results. At up to nine months between treatments, Juvederm gives you long-lasting results at an affordable cost.
Patients often combine Juvederm and BOTOX (hyperlink) injections during the same session, since both are very fast to administer and complement each other to treat the entire face. While the former is most effective on the nasolabial folds in the lower half of your face, the latter typically work best on frown lines above and around the eyes in the upper half of your face. While many medical spas advertise for facial fillers, you will benefit from selecting a full-fledged cosmetic surgery practice staffed by surgeons and nurses, such as NuBody Concepts. The placement of facial fillers is an art form that requires experience and an eye for aesthetics. Not all injections result in the desired look and may leave you dissatisfied, if not worse. Our team of aesthetic physicians and Registered Nurses, led by our plastic surgeon Dr. Greco, has extensive experience with injections as well as more advanced plastic surgery procedures.
If you are looking for a smoother and fuller look for your face, you may also be a candidate for our NuBody Fat Transfer procedure, which combines our water-based liposuction technology with fat transfer to extract fat from an area of your body where you don’t want it and inject it in your face for filling and contouring. Our medical consultant will be happy to discuss fat transfer options with you during a personal consultation.
