The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm® injections gives you a non-surgical option for reducing the signs of aging. The injectable skin rejuvenation treatment restores the natural levels of hyaluronic acid with a noninvasive treatment to provide youthful facial skin that has fewer wrinkles and lines. At Cool Springs MD Chattanooga, our medical staff is available to provide Juvederm® treatment to the residents of Chattanooga, East Brainerd and the surrounding areas of Tennessee.
What is Juvederm®?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that delivers nutrients to the skin to assist with the hydration of cells. The Allergan® pharmaceutical company manufactures Juvederm® dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid in a long-lasting and biodegradable format designed for injecting into the skin during a cosmetic procedure. Juvederm® replenishes hyaluronic acid to increase the volume of skin and protect skin cells. The aging process causes the skin to lose hyaluronic acid, leading to lines and wrinkles, but Juvederm® fills wrinkles and hydrates dry skin. A treatment of Juvederm® encourages facial skin to produce more hyaluronic acid naturally.
Benefits of Juvederm®
Anyone considering a Juvederm® treatment should have realistic expectations concerning its results. This dermal filler is safe for use on every skin tone type but is not recommended for anyone who has experienced an allergic reaction to ingredients in Juvederm® or if they have a current infection on the skin. Injections of Juvederm® provide these benefits:
- Reducing lines on the forehead and between the eyes
- Reducing crow’s feet next to the eyes
- Treating marionette lines between the mouth and nose
- Eliminating fine lines around the lips
- Increasing volume in the cheeks and under the eyes
About Juvederm® Injectable Gel
Patients arriving at Cool Springs MD Chattanooga are often dissatisfied with the appearance of their aging facial skin due to loss of volume in the lips, cheeks and under the eyes along with numerous fine lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, the Food and Drug Administration approved the dermal filler Juvederm® to treat facial wrinkles and folds, and it is appropriate for treating:
- Sunken facial cheeks and temples
- Marionette wrinkles
- Hollow tear trough
- Nasolabial folds
- Moderate to severe wrinkles and folds on the face
- Adding volume to the facial lips and eliminating fine lip lines
A patient’s first visit to our facility for a Juvederm® injection to the face requires 15 to 30 minutes. Our medical staff cleans a patient’s skin first with antiseptic to destroy germs and bacteria. After a careful consultation, he marks the treatment sites to inject Juvederm® into the skin’s underlying layers.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
The knowledgeable support team at Cool Springs MD Chattanooga offers individualized consultations to answer questions and ease a potential patient’s concern. This consultation is the best time to learn more about the cost of Juvederm® treatments because each patient has different needs. Our mission at Cool Springs MD Chattanooga is to make sure everyone meets their own aesthetic goals.
How Juvederm® Works
A consultation includes a thorough physical examination and discussion of the benefits of Juvederm® dermal filler injections. It is important for patients to reveal their medical history before this skin rejuvenation procedure.
Many patients prefer having an application of a numbing agent to injection sites after the cleansing process to avoid discomfort. After the skin is cleansed and marked, our medical staff will then inject Juvederm® dermal filler below the top layer of skin.
After an injection of Juvederm®, patients report that their skin feels fuller than before. Some patients also have temporary swelling or redness after injections, but Juvederm® treatment requires no downtime. However, Dr. Jack Rowland and Dr. Ben Abdu advises patients to avoid participating in strenuous exercise or drinking alcohol on the day of treatment.
A treatment of Juvederm® replaces an individual’s depleted levels of hyaluronic acid, and only one treatment is needed to notice improvements in the skin. After six months or longer, the Juvederm® dermal fillers are metabolized in the body, but patients can request new treatments for long-term results.
