Juvéderm in San Antonio
Juvéderm is a smooth gel injectable, designed to smooth facial lines and deep creases. Patients troubled by early signs of aging and wrinkles can see an immediate improvement with a Juvéderm treatment. Not only is the dermal filler excellent for treating facial lines, Juvéderm can also be used to replace lost facial volume – under the eyes and around the cheeks – as well as create additional volume, creating pleasing facial symmetry. The smooth gel formula causes little discomfort while providing patients with the most natural-looking results available today.

Facial lines can be caused by repetitive muscle movement (Dynamic) or through a loss of tissue elasticity (Static). Juvéderm treats Static wrinkles by filling in facial volume. The dermal filler is composed of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance found in the human body, and a building block for healthy tissues. HA works by holding in water at the injection site, plumping and cushioning the area. Juvéderm is FDA-approved to treat Nasolabial Folds (between the nose and mouth) and Marionette Lines (below the corners of the mouth), as well as along the cheeks and jawline.*

Who is a good candidate for Juvéderm Injectable Gel?

The ideal candidate for Juvéderm is an individual frustrated with sagging tissues of the face. Those experiencing a lack of facial volume or hollow areas under the eyes and cheeks, from the normal aging process or illness, will benefit greatly from a Juvéderm treatment. The ideal candidate will also be in generally good health and have realistic expectations for the noninvasive treatment.

How is Juvéderm Injectable Gel applied?

At Stadia Medical Spa, Juvéderm is only injected by a skilled, experienced provider, often the physician. A session will take roughly 30 minutes from start to finish, in our luxurious office-suite. Since Juvéderm is relatively pain-free, no anesthesia is required. Patients generally describe feeling a quick pinch as the injections are administered. There is no downtime required after a Juvéderm treatment, and no limitations on activities; patients go back to their usual routine immediately. There may be minor bruising at the injection site, but if this occurs, it will resolve over the next couple of days.
Juvéderm injections provide patients instantly visible results. Patients will be able to see their full results immediately after the treatment. Over the course of the following several months, the skin will gradually continue to improve, as the body’s natural Collagen stores increase. The benefits of Juvéderm are long-lasting, normally remaining for between eight and 10 months. Some patients do not require a repeat treatment for over a year.
