Hattiesburg Clinic Plastic Surgery offers many skin rejuvenating services, both surgical and non-surgical that help to combat signs of aging on the face and other parts of the body. One of these services include Juvederm® injections.
What is Juvederm®?
If you would like to restore facial contours or reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases, Juvederm® may be right for you. A hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler, Juvederm® plumps the lips, enhances shallow contours, softens facial creases and wrinkles, and improves recessed scars. It also bolsters skin elasticity, giving your skin a more youthful, supple appearance.
If you’re interested in receiving Juvederm® injections in South Mississippi, look no further than our office in Hattiesburg. The highly skilled medical professionals on staff have administered countless Juvederm® injections to patients from Forrest County and Lamar County, as well as other nearby locations.
How is Juvederm® administered?
Juvederm® injections are administered by physician in our Hattiesburg office. A local anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to minimize pain. The gel is then injected under the skin to increase the area’s volume. Because it is biocompatible, the body will typically absorb Juvederm® within six to nine months.
Am I a good candidate for Juvederm®?
The best candidates for our Juvederm® treatments are men and women looking to have fuller lips or reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Most of our patients target the following treatment areas:
- Deep nasogenian grooves (the folds between your nose and cheeks).
- Nasolabial folds between the nose and the outer corners of the mouth.
- Lines between the eyebrows or above the brow line.
- Lines around the outer eye (crow’s feet).
- Smile lines.
If you are pregnant or nursing, you should not undergo Juvederm® treatments.
What can I expect after Juvederm® injections?
The Juvederm® procedure is a simple, non-surgical treatment, so patients at our facility are able to resume normal activity immediately. Although there is minimal downtime, you may experience slight swelling and bruising. Any discoloration or redness can be covered with makeup.
What are the typical results after Juvederm® injections?
After receiving your Juvederm® injections, your results will be visible immediately, and they will continue to improve over the next several weeks. Fine lines and wrinkles will disappear, making way for smoother, supple skin. Whether you’re interested in Juvederm® to smooth out fine lines, increase lip volume, or reduce scarring, our trained staff can help you decide if Juvederm® is right for you.
How much does a Juvederm® injection cost?
Depending on the number of areas to be treated, Juvederm® costs will vary.
