Juvederm is one of the most popular injectable fillers used at our Dallas plastic surgery office. Comprised of hyaluronic acid, a natural and valuable component found in the skin that depletes as we age, Juvederm adds volume where this depletion is noticeable. Once injected, the surface of the skin looks fuller, smoother and softer. Dr. White uses Juvederm to treat areas where wrinkles reside closely together. This is because once injected, Juvederm tends to spread beyond the actual injection site. Producing results that can last up to 9 months, Juvederm is primarily used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is commonly injected around the mouth, nasolabial folds, lips, and can also be used to fill deep creases between the eyebrows.
What to Expect
Juvederm is performed during an in-office appointment. Prior to receiving the injection, an assessment will be made as to where the injections will go, and how much of the medication (number of syringes) is needed to produce the desired results. During the appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked with ink and a numbing cream will be applied to help with any discomfort. As the solution is injected into the skin, the surgeon will massage the area so that the medication diffuses and spreads evenly. Cold compresses are then applied to help with swelling.
"I have to say that I was very nervous about doing injections (fillers) in my face. But after my consultation with Dr. White, I know that he was the best one to do this. He is very professional and spends as much time as needed to make you feel comfortable. The results are fabulous! I am even considering having other procedures. I would recommend Dr. White without hesitation."- S. S. / Office Visit / Dec 14, 2010
"35 Year Old, Had Severe, Deep Nasolabial Folds, Smile Lines. Dallas, TX - I just got my nasolabial folds, smilelines, injected with 2 syringes of juvederm. I wasn't nervous since I really needed this and wanted it bad. I just always looked mad or tired when I wasn't smiling. Lately I was getting really self conscious and I started to put my hands around my mouth or over it when I talked to people face to face. I made the appointment with the plastic surgeon who did my breast augmentation. I needed 2 syringes since they were so deep. First syringe was $600, 2nd was $500. I first got there and my surgeon took several pictures of my face, he then put a numbing cream on my smile lines. That took about 30 minutes to numb it all. He then started to inject. The actual injection didn't not hurt. The needle is so thin that you can barely feel it. He did like 4-5 pokes on each side. That process took about 15 minutes. I had very minimal bleeding out of a poke but that was it. I left as soon as he was done. That night I did feel uncomfortable and there was a little bit of pain, I'm assuming after all the needles pokes. The next morning I was swollen with very little bruising. I did think to myself, why did I do this! Why?! I was swollen for about 2 days. The swelling did go down thankfully. I have noticed that my skin is very dry where the juvederm was injected. Not sure if that's a side affect. Today is day 4 and as of right now I am happy with the results. I feel better about myself, looked more refreshed :)"- E. / RealSelf / Sep 08, 2014
"I had been very interested in Botox and fillers for years but was reluctant due to my fear of needles. When I decided I should not wait any longer, Dr. White was the perfect doctor for me. He used extremely small syringes and combined with his careful technique, I was able to tolerate the procedures with ease. I was so glad I made the decision to go forward with these two amazing solutions to keep my youthful appearance. The wrinkles in my forehead nearly disappeared completely and my smile improved so much. Plus I am keeping future wrinkles at bay. His staff is amazing too. When you call Dr White's office, the phones are answered by experienced technicians who actually assist with the procedures. They are very knowledgeable and helpful about all your questions and concerns.Another thing I was really impressed with is that you never feel rushed. Dr. White takes his time with you and makes you feel like your appointment is the only thing he has to do all day. If you are considering Botox and Juvederm I highly recommend you call his office.Pamela"- P.C. / Citysearch / Dec 15, 2015
"Dr. STEVEN J. WHITE is literally THE BEST OF THE BEST. Dr. White's staff is SIMPLY AWESOME!! JENNIFER, JAZMIN & SITA are incredibly helpful,knowledgeable, efficient & then some. I had a breast augmentation done in early July of 2013. I am BEYOND THRILLED with the results. Better than amazing! Dr. White is an absolute perfectionist, & artist. His attention to detail is second to none. His numerous awards, and reviews are the reason I chose him. I could not have asked for better results. He is #1 in my book. On another note, I have been getting fillers for years. I am in the medical field. I decided to have Dr. White do my BOTOX & JUVEDERM, because of his attention to detail with everything he does. He took pictures & marked the areas before doing the injections. I saw instant results, before I left the office. Usually it takes a few days to a few weeks to see the results. Best filler results ever! NO BRUISING at all. I am beyond grateful for Dr. White, Jennifer, Jazmin and Sita."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 16, 2013
After a Juvederm treatment, patients can return to work, but exercise or strenuous activity should be avoided for about 24 hours. The injections sites will appear red and swollen, but this goes away within a couple of hours. Some patients may bruise, but this is also temporary. The visible results after the injections are noticed immediately. The results will last for about 6-9 months before another round of injections are needed or desired.
The cost will vary based on the number of syringes needed, which is determined based on the size of the area, the amount of wrinkles and the depth of wrinkles.
