What is JUVÉDERM®?
JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler used to add volume to wrinkles and folds, smoothing out the complexion. This filler contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that gives skin its hydration and boosts collagen production. It is most often used in the cheeks and midface area.
The Best Candidates for JUVÉDERM®
Planning for JUVÉDERM® Treatments
Before getting JUVÉDERM® treatments, we recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Diaz so that he can evaluate your skin and the imperfections you want to correct. Following this evaluation along with gathering your medical history and making sure you have no underlying conditions, he recommends whether JUVÉDERM® or another filler is the best option to achieve your desired look.
When administering JUVÉDERM®, the gel filler is injected into the targeted areas of the face. The filler may be massaged to evenly spread in the area to add volume to wrinkles and folds. With JUVÉDERM®, there is no discomfort with the injections; however, a numbing agent may be applied to alleviate any anxiety. Each session takes about 30 minutes to perform. JUVÉDERM® is often used in combination with other treatments.
After JUVÉDERM® Treatment
Once the treatment session is complete, people return to their normal activities. There may be some slight swelling or redness at the injection site, but this quickly resolves itself within a few days. Most people require several sessions to achieve their desired look.
How Much Do JUVÉDERM® Treatments Cost in Mississippi?
The cost of JUVÉDERM® treatments varies with each patient as it depends on how many injections are needed, how many sessions are required and whether other treatments are performed during the same time. We can discuss the costs with you during your consultation as well as our payment options including financing through CareCredit®.
Your New Look
The results from JUVÉDERM® are somewhat noticeable following the treatment and continue to improve over the next few weeks. The filler attracts moisture and boosts collagen production, revealing a younger, rejuvenated appearance. JUVÉDERM® usually lasts between nine and 12 months.
