Juvederm® in Philadelphia, PA
Age-related volume loss coupled with deep lines in the cheek or mouth area used to have many people scrambling for surgery. These days, a good number of individuals visit Main Line Plastic Surgery for a Juvederm® injection performed by Dr. Raymond D. Jean. This procedure is available to patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable gel that is used to treat facial wrinkles such as those that tend to appear between the nose and mouth. Its primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid, a substance required for healthy skin that your body produces less and less of as you grow older. Reduced hyaluronic acid is often attributed to wrinkling and a loss in facial volume, so Juvederm® treats the natural causes of aging rather than simply trying to cover them up.
Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?
Juvederm® does contain the numbing agent lidocaine, so you should let us know if you have ever had a negative reaction to this medication in the past. If so, we may be able to provide you with a more purified solution that does not contain lidocaine.
Planning your Juvederm® Treatment
All you need to do is to schedule around an hour or so in our office. Even though Juvederm® contains a form of anesthesia, you do not need to worry about abstaining from food or drinks beforehand. *In fact, many people schedule this procedure on their lunch hour and consume a normal meal before heading back to work.
How is Juvederm® Performed?
An aesthetician will cleanse your skin and then Dr. Jean will prepare the Juvederm® solution. Next, he will make one or more injections in your skin, which will likely take place in the nasolabial folds between your nose and mouth. *Once he has finished with your injections, you can then go about your day as normal.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost in Philadelphia?
Medical spa procedures such as Juvederm® are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® works like a credit card, offering low-interest rates and easily affordable payments to help you afford Juvederm® on your terms.
What to Expect* after Juvederm®
*The full effects of Juvederm® will kick in in about a week or so. You can expect to maintain your results for up to one year. *Those who come in for follow-up treatments after that time normally require far less product the second time to achieve the same results.
Recovering from Juvederm®
Keep an eye out for unusual swelling or bruising, and contact our office if those symptoms become severe. Other than that, you can easily manage symptoms at home using conservative treatments such as hot/cold therapy and over-the-counter medication.
