JUVÉDERM® an Injectable Facial Filler
Dr. Khoobehi is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in using Juvéderm to help patients achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Juvéderm is a popular cosmetic derma filler comprised of hyaluronic acid, and used to improve hollow areas on the face where additional volume is desired.
Dr. Kamran Khoobehi performs Juvéderm injections in the office for patients seeking a younger, softer appearance. With many injectable options available on the market today, Juvéderm has been proven to provide safe and effective results for up to a full year. There are two types of Juvéderm available, depending on the unique needs: Juvéderm XC, which is used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles around the mouth and nose, and Juvéderm Voluma XC, which works great for adding volume to the cheeks.
Lip and facial injections can provide you with a soft natural look with spectacular results. Dr. Khoobehi uses the latest techniques and technologies to ensure that Juvederm injection are as comfortable , safe, and effective as possible. He also emphasizes the importance of a through consultation prior to treatment, during which he can discuss your individual needs, expectations, and medical history to determine whether Juvederm is the right choice. If you are worried about pain, we can put a topical numbing gel on the area before the injection. You will feel a minor amount of pain, but keep in mind that the medication is blended with lidocaine as well.
What To Expect
Juvéderm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. Dr. Khoobehi may massage the treated area, so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvéderm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer, and smoother.
One full syringe of Juvederm on average cost $600. The final cost of treatment will depend on how many syringes of the product were used. Some sessions may take 1-3 syringes. Dr. Khoobehi is known for his expertise and personalized approach in administering Juvederm. He works closely with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals, ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcome.
This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. Dr. Khoobehi administers with a fine needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.
Derma fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX®. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.
Can I Look Like I Did When I Was 20?
It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvéderm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
