Juvederm is a popular injectable wrinkle filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA). When Juvederm is injected into areas of the face with low volume, the HA adds volume and hydration to plump the skin, which decreases fine lines and wrinkles. Juvederm treatments by Dr. Earl Stephenson, a Snellville, GA plastic surgeon, make the face look younger, fuller, and smoother for up to 9 months. Juvederm is best for correcting moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles that are close together and Juvederm treatments are usually injected into the areas around the mouth and lips, as well as in the nasolabial folds. Juvederm is sometimes used to correct the deep creases that can appear between the patient’s 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.
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.
Our plastic surgery office charges about $400-$600 per syringe of Juvederm. 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.
