Juvéderm Q&A

What causes facial wrinkles?

The skin becomes less elastic as part of the natural aging process, resulting in wrinkles. The skin also produces fewer natural oils with age, leading to drier and more wrinkled skin. Genetics, pollutants, and sun exposure all contribute to facial wrinkling, as does smoking. 

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. The skin becomes less elastic and decreases the production of natural oils with age, which leads to drier, more wrinkled skin. Genetics, sun exposure, pollutants, and smoking all contribute to wrinkling, especially on the face, hands, and neck.

Alliance MD Weight Loss Center offers both Botox and Juvéderm treatments to make your skin imperfections and wrinkles less noticeable, so you can feel more comfortable about your appearance. 

What can Juvéderm dermal fillers do to improve my appearance?

Dermal fillers add volume to specific areas of your face, such as your cheeks and lips. Juvéderm can: 

  • Reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles 
  • Reduce or eliminate lines around lips
  • Increase lip volume 
  • Improve lip shape 
  • Increase volume of cheeks
  • Improve the symmetry of facial features

It’s possible you may need multiple dermal fillers to achieve maximum results, depending on your cosmetic goals. Juvéderm offers natural-looking results, so you don’t have to worry about looking like you’ve had work done after treatments.

Are Juvéderm results permanent?

No. Dermal fillers, including Juvéderm, are not permanent. Juvéderm results last between 6-12 months. You can request additional treatments as the results wear off. Dr. Abassi may recommend Botox treatments in combination with Juvéderm to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Are Juvéderm and Botox injections the same? 

Although Juvéderm and Botox are both cosmetic injectables, they work differently to improve your appearance.

Botox injections temporarily prevent specific muscles from moving, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines caused by repetitive movements. Juvéderm adds volume to your face to smooth out wrinkles and lines with collagen. 

What should I expect during Juvéderm treatments?

Juvéderm fillers are nonsurgical injections placed in the area being treated, such as your cheeks or lips, to increase volume and “fill-in” wrinkles and folds. The procedure uses ultra-fine needles. Discomfort is minimal, making anesthesia unnecessary.
