Juvederm can address the signs of facial aging without the need for surgery! The mouth and nose areas are among the first to show creases and wrinkles. Traditionally, patients had to undergo facelift surgery to correct these issues and restore youthfulness to the facial profile. Thanks to innovative cosmetic injectable solutions, however, you can smooth fine lines and folds with a simple, non-invasive treatment! At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer Juvederm at our Atlanta offices.
Your skin goes through numerous changes as you age. During youth, the skin has an abundance of collagen and elasticity to help prevent the formation of deep folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
As one ages, however, the skin loses elastin and collagen, leaving the lower face more vulnerable to fine lines. Juvederm is a dermal filler that contains one of the skin’s most valuable defenses against aging: hyaluronic acid, commonly known as HA. Hyaluronic acid binds with water to give your skin volume and helps fill facial folds and creases that have formed over time. Juvederm is recommended as an anti-aging treatment for the nose and mouth area, including deep wrinkles and folds that are resistant to other dermal fillers.
Dr. Killingsworth, Dr. Farber, and their plastic surgery team can determine which cosmetic concerns will be effectively treated with Juvederm.
During your consultation for Juvederm Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Killingsworth will examine your skin. We will ask about your medical history, including any known allergies or adverse reactions to dermal fillers. If we determine that Juvederm is the ideal treatment for you, we will describe the anticipated results, treatment plan, and schedule for follow-up treatments.
Juvederm contains lidocaine (a numbing agent) and hyaluronic acid. The formulation contains larger active particles, so we may also recommend a local anesthetic to help you stay comfortable during treatment.
During your procedure, the Juvederm product is injected into wrinkles and folds. Multiple injections are necessary for optimal results. Some immediate improvements are visible, but full results should occur over time as the hyaluronic acid in the injections attracts water to your skin. Atlanta Juvederm results can last up to twelve months. Follow-up treatments are necessary to maintain results.
The cost of Juvederm treatment at Astra Plastic Surgery depends on the number of injections that are needed, so treating deeper folds may cost more than treating advanced wrinkles. We will provide a complete cost after your consultation. We accept payment by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
