Juvederm in Middletown, NJ
To diminish the wrinkles and lines that seem to form around your mouth, eyes, and forehead, Juvederm® is a very effective and long-lasting treatment performed by board-certified Red Bank plastic surgeon Dr. John Taylor at Allure Plastic Surgery Center.
What Is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable gel filler used to reduce lines on the face especially on the forehead and around the nose and mouth as well as to plump lips. Juvederm® is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that attracts water and keeps the skin hydrated. As we age, our skin loses the natural HA, which can now be replaced with Juvederm® injections.
Benefits of Juvederm®
Juvederm® is an advanced injectable filler that is very popular because of the following benefits:
- Lasts up to a year
- Needs no allergy testing prior to injecting
- Corrects fine lines and wrinkles
- Adds volume to skin
- Adds volume to lips
- Is a quick procedure
- Has no downtime
What Is the Procedure for Injecting Juvederm®?
Using a very fine needle, Juvederm® is injected into the targeted area to instantly restore volume to the area. Depending on how well the injection performs, Dr. Taylor may perform additional injections. With Juvederm®, the hyaluronic acid attracts water to retain the skin volume in the targeted area so that the moisture in the skin is maintained although the actual Juvederm® is absorbed by the body.
Juvederm® can correct forehead lines, chin wrinkles, nasolabial folds (“parentheses”), “marionette” lines, and vertical lip lines. It is also highly effective in lip augmentation, enhancing lip fullness and defining the “cupid’s bow.”
Preparing for Juvederm®
There is no preparation for Juvederm® except to abstain from taking ibuprofen, aspirin, or any blood thinning medications or supplements for about a week prior to receiving Juvederm®. They can increase the chance of bruising around the injection site. Patients are asked to apply a numbing cream to the area one hour prior to treatment or they can receive a local nerve block injection in the office to minimize any potential discomfort. Dr. Taylor makes detailed notes and diagrams on the individualized treatment pattern for future reference.
Recovery from Juvederm®
Patients are asked to return for a follow-up appointment to evaluate the results, allowing any modification of the treatment and to ensure patient satisfaction. This is a quick, in-office procedure with immediate results and little or no downtime. It is highly effective in rejuvenating one’s appearance, since it smooths the deep lines and creases of the face and plumps the lips, if desired.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
The cost for Juvederm® varies depending on the area to be treated and the amount of gel needed to achieve the desired look. During your consultation, Dr. Taylor discusses the cost as well as payment options that include cash, checks, and most major credit cards. We also offer financing through CareCredit®. Because Juvederm® is considered a cosmetic procedure, we ask that the full payment be made two weeks prior to the treatment.
Is Juvederm® Right for Me?
If you are unhappy with your appearance and want to reduce the signs of aging, increase the volume in your face, or have fuller lips, then Juvederm® may be right for you.
Why Choose Dr. Taylor for Juvederm®?
Dr. Taylor is a board-certified plastic surgeon who is well trained at administering Juvederm® injections. He does the injections himself to ensure that the right amount is injected into the targeted area so the desired look is achieved without looking overdone.
