Much like Botox and Dysport, Juvéderm injections can help diminish lines and wrinkles. This product is a dermal filler that injects hyaluronic acid (HA) beneath the skin to add volume that smooths folds and wrinkles in the skin and adds volume to the face that is often lost to aging. This natural chemical is what gives structure to the face, along with natural collagen and elastin in the skin, and when it is lost, the face can look sunken and wrinkled. Injections of Juvéderm instantly plump the skin and give patients a fresher, more youthful look.
The product is available in a range of fillers that are used for different parts of the face and for fine lines or deep depressions in the skin. Special fillers can also add extra volume to the lips. Using the right product, Dr. Eko, an experienced practitioner, administers just the right Juvéderm preparation with a fine needle to target particular facial problems.
At Eko Plastic Surgery, this non-surgical procedure takes around 45 minutes and can last for up to two years. When the effects start to gradually wear off, patients come in for additional treatments to top off the product.
As a natural “biocompatible” product, Juvéderm is tolerated by virtually everyone. Temporary side effects might include redness, firmness, swelling, bruising, pain, tenderness, or discoloration around the injection site that can easily be covered with makeup, but there is no downtime after Juvéderm injections.
If you seek a more youthful face, Juvéderm may be for you. For a consultation with Dr. Eko, fill in the form below or call us at (760) 249-2222.
The Juvederm collection of fillers are injectable gels made from modified hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. Using a fine needle, Dr. Eko injects the smooth gels under the skin.
Juvederm XC injectable gels (Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC) are indicated for injection into the mid-to-deep dermis for correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds).
Juvederm Ultra XC injectable gel is indicated for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation in adults over the age of 21.
