JuvedermImprove skin tone and reduce wrinkles with one cosmetic treatment.

Let’s face it—we're all looking for ways to look younger. Perhaps you’ve purchased one facial product after the next just hoping to see visibly younger results. Perhaps you’ve finally started putting on sunscreen in an effort to protect your already sun-damaged skin. However, if you are truly looking to get more radiant, youthful skin, you don’t need to opt for painful, time-consuming cosmetic procedures and invasive surgeries. Now your San Antonio, TX dermatologist can give you the appearance you want with one simple treatment.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a series of injectable dermal fillers that use a chemical known as hyaluronic acid to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines, and to increase firmness and volume in the skin. This product has been FDA approved to temporarily offer smoother, tighter skin.

What does Juvederm treat?

Juvederm is approved to reduce the appearance of facial lines and folds, particularly wrinkles around the mouth and nose.

What should I expect when I see my San Antonio dermatologist for Juvederm treatments?

This series of injections only takes a couple minutes to perform. You may experience a slight pinch as the needles are injected into the skin; however, we typically use a topical numbing cream prior to the injections to reduce any discomfort you may feel. You may experience some redness, tenderness or swelling near the injection sites afterwards. These symptoms tend to be very minor and will go away within a few days.

When will I see my results? How long will my results last?

Unlike with other injectable treatments like Botox, you will see results immediately with Juvederm. Once any side effects disappear you will be left with your final result. These results tend to last anywhere from 9 months to a year.

How many Juvederm treatments can I get?

For those looking to maintain their results with Juvederm you can continue to get subsequent treatments. Most patients will opt for repeat treatments about 9 months after their first set of injections. Talk to your San Antonio dermatologist about how often you should come in for treatment to keep your new look.
