Juvederm® for Smoother, Younger Looking Skin

Schaffer Plastic Surgery offers a diverse suite of injectables, which includes Juvederm®, to address common signs of aging. Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler comprised of hyaluronic acid that is used to treat fine lines, facial wrinkles and folds and to restore facial volume. It yields immediate results that can last for up to one year. If you are looking to achieve a smoother, lifted facial appearance, Juvederm® could be an important part of your personalized treatment plan.

What to Expect from Juvederm®

Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Schaffer, personally injects each unit of Juvederm® while adhering to the highest standards of patient safety and utilizing his extensive training and understanding of the inner workings of facial nerves and muscles. Being personally treated by a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Schaffer, ensures that you will receive the most natural results possible and is a notable benefit of choosing Schaffer Plastic Surgery for your facial injectables.

Natural, Enhanced Appearance

Based on your unique facial anatomy, Dr. Schaffer will develop a personalized plan to enhance your appearance which may include Juvederm® injections to address:

  • Thin lips
  • Facial wrinkles and folds
  • Sagging or sallow cheeks

How it Works

Juvederm’s®  main ingredient is modified hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance found in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Treatments with Juvederm® help to add volume to different areas of the face without a need for surgery while also temporarily restoring the volume loss beneath the surface. Schaffer Plastic Surgery also offers Juvederm's® VYCROSS® Collection, which includes Volbella®, Vollure® and Voluma® with lidocaine. This collection of fillers allows patients to experience less pain and swelling after treatment, with longer lasting and natural results of traditional Juvederm® products. In fact, Juvederm's® VYCROSS® Collection are among the first hyaluronic acid gel fillers to be clinically proven to remain in the body for up to, and above, one year.

Your Juvederm® Appointment

Dr. Schaffer will carefully examine and study your facial anatomy to best determine injection sites and specific injectable products that are most suitable for achieving your desired results. In the comfort of our private facility that has been nationally certified for our deep commitment to the highest standards of patient safety, your procedure will likely take less than one hour. After cleansing and preparing the area to be treated, Dr. Schaffer will inject Juvederm® through the skin with an ultra-fine needle to temporarily fill in and augment the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Injections are mildly painful, but treatment areas can be numbed to further minimize any discomfort.

The most common side effects found with Juvederm® are injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, bruising, discoloration and itching. These side effects are typically mild or moderate and tend to subside in less than a few days. Juvederm® is regarded as safe and well-studied with a long history of successful use.

Post-Treatment Care

Juvederm® injections typically require no downtime, although you may experience some mild tenderness or discomfort after your procedure. You may apply a cold compress to help reduce any swelling and should avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol consumption for 24 hours. Typically, your results will be visible after swelling has decreased two to three days after your injections, with the potential for an improved appearance over time.
