Juvederm® in Worcester, MA
Juvederm® is a dermal filler that is rapidly gaining popularity. Residents of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, and surrounding areas are reporting excellent results with Juvederm® and other dermal filler treatments provided at Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, led by Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom, a board-certified plastic surgeon.
What Is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an FDA-approved dermal filler treatment that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which helps skin cells retain moisture. While Juvederm® does not directly eliminate lines and wrinkles, it works by gradually increasing the skin’s natural hydration, imparting fullness and volume to the skin, thus causing lines, wrinkles, and creases to diminish gradually and naturally.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) occurs naturally in our skin cells, and binds with water to retain moisture, resulting in smoother, plumper skin cells thanks to increased hydration. Our bodies begin to produce less HA as we age, diminishing the amount of hydration our skin cells absorb and retain. Juvederm® is a safe and effective treatment that delivers hyaluronic acid directly to skin cells to gradually diminish the appearance of wrinkles, lines and creases in the facial area.
Juvederm® is popular because it is safe and minimally invasive, uses natural ingredients similar to that produced in our own bodies, and effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and creases, by gradually increasing hydration and volume in the skin cells. Juvederm® also provides the following benefits:
- An effective temporary alternative to cosmetic surgery
- Gradual enhancement with results that last about 12 months
- Simple outpatient treatment performed in the doctor’s office
- Requires no downtime or recovery period
Who Is a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?
Juvederm® has been determined safe for most adults in good physical condition and is recommended for those who wish to smooth out lines, wrinkles, and creases in the facial area.
How Should I Prepare For Juvederm®?
For optimal results, we recommend you take certain precautions prior to your Juvederm® consultation, such as avoiding consumption of alcohol for at least two days prior to your appointment and possibly discontinuing some medications that may increase your chance of bruising.
How Is Juvederm® Administered?
Juvederm® injections are injected into the skin with a very fine-gauge needle to deliver hyaluronic acid directly into strategic areas of your face. The procedure is comfortable for most patients because the product has a smooth, pleasant consistency and contains lidocaine, an effective numbing agent. The needles used are ultra fine, and the procedure takes only about 30 to 60 minutes, providing results that are immediately noticeable, as well as a continued improvement over time.
How Long Do Juvederm® Results Last?
Most Juvederm® patients require follow-up treatment about 12 months after original treatment.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost In Worcester?
Juvederm® treatments vary in price according to how much product is used. Insurance does not typically cover Juvederm® treatments, so our office provides easy financing methods, as well as accepts various forms of payment.
