Do you constantly pull the skin on your face to turn back time and remember your younger years? Perhaps it is time to consider Juvederm® treatments, a non-surgical solution for lines and wrinkles. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett, offers Juvederm® for men and women in Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert and surrounding communities of Phoenix.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable cosmetic gel that smooths away lines and wrinkles. The treatment works by restoring the hyaluronic acid, or HA, in your skin. HA is a substance that occurs naturally in human skin, so you needn’t worry about having synthetic substances injected into your body. One of the key components of young, flawless skin is hydration. HA is the “sponge” that draws water to the skin cells. Unfortunately, drinking water is not enough to keep our skin hydrated as we get older because our bodies produce less HA. By restoring your HA levels with Juvederm® injections, your skin cells are better able to absorb water. The extra hydration helps the skin cells “plump up” and fill in lines and wrinkles.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
Juvederm® treatment costs are based on the amount of product that is used, and this is determined during your consultation. We can provide an accurate cost after this appointment. Dr. Leverett offers financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, cash and cashier’s checks.
Benefits of Juvederm®
Using Juvederm® to restore the HA in your skin means that you look younger without surgery or downtime. All you need is a simple and quick treatment. Best of all, you look younger for up to 12 months.
Good Candidates for Juvederm® Treatments
Juvederm® can be used on all skin types, so the primary consideration for Juvederm® injections is the type and location of your wrinkles. After Dr. Leverett evaluates your skin, he recommends the dermal fillers and injectables that will best meet your anti-aging needs.
What Can I Expect from My Juvederm® Treatments?
If you have ever had a vaccination, you know how injections feel. Juvederm® injections are much more comfortable because the needle that is used is much smaller than those used for immunizations. Dr. Leverett makes several injections along the lines and wrinkles to precisely add the volume that is needed to smooth the skin. You will see an improvement right after the treatment, but the full effects happen in the coming weeks as the HA draws water to your skin cells.
After the Juvederm® Treatment
No special aftercare is needed for Juvederm® treatments, but you should avoid rubbing or massaging the area for at least one week. This ensures that the Juvederm® gel settles into the areas treated by Dr. Leverett.
