About Juvéderm

Stop wrinkles in their tracks with Juvéderm injections by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq. Juvéderm is an FDA-approved facial filler typically used to reduce wrinkles and increase volume in different areas of the face. Composed of hyaluronic acid, Juvéderm lasts up to 1 year and allows patients to maintain a soft, natural appearance. Through the use of Hylacross technology, which is made of a less granular consistency, Juvéderm improves the overall look of one’s face and skin by minimizing smile lines, creases, wrinkles, and brightening the overall appearance of the skin. Juvedérm is an outpatient treatment (for patients 21 years of age or older) administered in our office in Sugar Land, TX or in downtown Houston at the Galleria Cosmetic Center.

Administering Juvéderm

Juvéderm is an outpatient treatment typically administered right inside our office. Similar to other injection treatments, the injection sites will be marked on your face using a washable pen. The amount of Juvederm administered is dependent upon the depth of the wrinkles and location areas. Some patients will need more or less of the product depending on the desired results. Typical treatments last approximately 30 minutes, but some can take up to an hour. 

Best Candidates?

Individuals who are seeking to treat wrinkles without having to undergo surgery are usually good candidates for Juvéderm. Depending on how deep and how many wrinkles are being treated typically determines the filler product, but Juvederm works well for patients who wish to improve moderate facial lines or augment the lips. Those with deeper lines and creases may be better suited for thicker filler material.

What to Expect

Patients should expect to see immediate results following their treatment. Juvéderm contains the anesthetic lidocaine, so patients should not experience discomfort, although there may be some redness at or around the injection sites after the treatment has been completed. The dermatologist may gently rub the areas of the face to help the filler spread evenly and smoothly. Treatment is expected to last up to a year and many patients return after that time frame.
