JUVEDERM® IN SCOTTSDALE
Anyone who wishes to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds ("parentheses" between the corners of the mouth and the nose), or any other wrinkles around the mouth or nose may be a candidate for Juvederm treatment. Juvederm injections can also be used to enhance the lips, creating fuller lips or a more symmetrical lip appearance.
Juvederm Treatment Information
A tiny needle is used to inject a small amount of the Juvederm into the skin to "fill" the wrinkles and folds. Anesthesia is not usually needed, but a topical anesthesia and/or local blocks may be used to numb the skin and make the procedure comfortable with minimal discomfort. The Juvederm injection procedure takes about 15 - 30 minutes, and results are immediate. Juvederm injections can be combined with other plastic surgery procedures.
Recovery from Juvederm Injections
You can go back to work and full unrestricted activities immediately. You can shower and wash immediately, and no bandages or dressings are needed. Some temporary itching, swelling, or redness may occur within the first few days of treatment.
Results of Juvederm Injections
- Beautiful and natural elimination or softening of most affected wrinkles that lasts 6 months or more
- Supplemental "touch up" treatments may be desired to achieve and maintain optimal results
- Natural-looking results
The specific risks and the suitability of Juvederm can be determined only at the time of your consultation with Scottsdale plastic surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Shaw. All procedures have some degree of risk, but major complications are rare.
