Juvederm

As we age, we lose volume in the face.  The volume lost in the face is a combination of fat and bone.  Juvederm is made up of a naturally occurring substance in the human body that is injected into the face to restore volume.  Adding volume to the face can be a simple, easy, and quick method to improve facial balance and symmetry.

How can Juvederm Injections Improve my Facial Harmony?

 JuvedermAs previously stated, the face loses fat and bone over the years.  This loss of volume causes the face to deflate similarly to a balloon that constantly loses a small amount of air. As the balloon deflates, it begins to form creases and shadows.  The face undergoes a similar process and with the addition of Juvederm, the face can be filled, lifted, and wrinkles smoothed. At my practice in Charlotte, Juvederm helps patients to look and feel younger.

What is Juvederm Made Of?

Can Juvederm Improve the Bags Underneath My Eyes?

I commonly inject Juvederm in Charlotte underneath the eyes of my patients to smoothen the bags.  The Juvederm blends with the groove that creates the eye-bag.  While this does not eliminate the eye bag, it can be successful at camouflaging the bag.

What if I don’t Like the Result?  Can the Injection be Reversed?

One reason why Juvederm is a great product, is that it can be easily reversed.  There is an enzyme, hyaluronidase, which instantaneously dissolves Juvederm. For my patient in Charlotte, Juvederm can be easily removed by a simple injection of hyaluronidase.

How Long Does Juvederm Last?

Lip Augmentation 1 300x243 JuvedermThere is not a straightforward answer. After Juvederm is injected, it is slowly absorbed.  I believe the better question to ask is how often does a patient need to repeat the injection to have the desired results. Most patients like to have the area re-injected after 60% of the Juvederm has been absorbed.  Depending on the area of the face, this will be every 6-12 months.  Areas of the face that move more frequently (the mouth), will dissolve the Juvederm faster than non-mobile areas (temples). The best way to find out how long your North Carolina Juvederm treatment will last is to schedule a consult with Carolina Facial Plastics.

Do I Need the Same Amount Each Treatment?

Since most people get injected before all of the Juvederm as been absorbed, patients typically require Juvederm on their follow-up treatments. 

How Much Does Juvederm Cost in Charlotte?

The price of Juvederm in Charlotte can vary.  Juvederm is typically priced per syringe, and each syringe contains 1ml of product.  If you are having a specialty trained facial plastic surgeon perform the injections, it may be slightly more than an injector of less education.  Also, the price can vary between the first and subsequent syringe.  Often times, the second syringe may be less than the initial syringe.

How Many Syringes Do Most Patients Require on Their First Treatment?

This depends on many variables including the location, age of patient, and the amount of volume loss.  It can range from 1 syringe to over 20 syringes.

What is Unique Regarding the Technique to Inject Juvederm in Charlotte at Carolina Facial Plastics?

Fillers have been historically injected with a needle.  I believe a needle is painful, traumatic, and can cause bruising.  At Carolina Facial Plastics, I use a blunt tipped microcannula to inject facial fillers.  Since the microcannula is blunt at the end, it causes less trauma resulting in a more comfortable experience and less risk of a bruise.

Can I Be Allergic to Juvederm?

Since Juvederm is composed of a naturally occurring substance in the body, it has an extremely low incidence of a patient becoming allergic to the product.  I have personally never seen a patient that was allergic to Juvederm at my Charlotte practice.
