What is Juvéderm?
Juvéderm is a facial filler composed of hyaluronic acid. It is a popular treatment method for wrinkles, lines, and creases found in the face, and it can help address skin that is thinning or drooping. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Suzman, proudly offers Juvéderm injections to his patients at WESTMED Group in Westchester County, NY to help produce younger looking and more volumized skin. There are multiple types of Juvéderm injections that are specifically designed to address the patient's individual needs, and their results will vary. Our office is proud to offer the various formulas within the Juvéderm family:
Juvéderm XC, Ultra, Vollure, and Vobella, as well as Voluma.
Both Dr. Suzman and his seasoned PA, Heather Tomchik administer these injections with careful precision and detail. Patients can expect smoother, tighter looking skin after their injection procedure.
Individuals who are seeking to treat wrinkles without having to undergo surgery, are usually good candidates for Juvéderm. Depending on how deep and how many wrinkles are being treated typically determines the filler product, but Juvéderm works well in patients who wish to improve moderate facial lines or augment the lips. Those with deeper lines and creases may be better suited for thicker filler material.
"Juvederm Voluma for Lost Facial Volume. Rye, NY - Dr. Suzman performed my surgical lower third lift and I loved it. However, I wasn't quite prepared for the after effects when the swelling fully decreased. Coupled with a lid lift, my face looked incomplete in mid-face sagging due to loss of volume at my cheeks. Dr. Suzman had administered Juverderm to my upper lip line in a way that restored volume without giving me giant bee-stung lips. I trusted him with injectables, so I sought out Juvederm Voluma for my mid-face. I can't rave about the results enough.Dr. Suzman is a magician with injectables. You may find yourself growing a little impatient with his conservative approach at first (as I did). Trust him. He knows what he's doing. When the full effect of the injectables comes in, you will not be disappointed in the least."- F. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2015
Juvéderm is an outpatient treatment typically administered right inside our office. Similar to other injection treatments, the injection sites will be marked on your face using a washable pen. The amount of Juvéderm administered is dependent upon the depth of the wrinkles and location areas. Some patients will need more or less of the product depending on the desired results. Typical treatments last approximately 30 minutes, but some can take up to an hour.
What to Expect
Patients should expect to see immediate results following their treatment. Juvéderm contains the anesthetic lidocaine, so patients should not experience discomfort, although there may be some redness at or around the injection sites after the treatment has been completed. The dermatologist may gently rub the areas of the face to help the filler spread evenly and smoothly. Treatment is expected to last up to a year and many patients return after that time frame.
