Juvederm in Brentwood, TN
Fight the signs of aging by restoring the hyaluronic acid (HA) that maintains youthful skin. Juvederm® is an injectable treatment that contains HA to reduce lines and wrinkles. At Cool Springs MD, Dr. Lodge offers Juvederm® to residents of Brentwood, Nashville and the surrounding area in Tennessee who desire a non-invasive wrinkle reduction.
What Is Juvederm®?
Made by Allergan®, Juvederm® is a long-lasting injectable cosmetic filler that is biodegradable and contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in your body and delivers nutrients to your skin to hydrate and protect skin cells. Without hyaluronic acid, your skin loses volume and structure, causing wrinkles. When a Juvederm® injection is administered to the wrinkles and lines of your face, it hydrates the skin and fills the wrinkles. Juvederm® treatment actually boosts the natural function of hyaluronic acid in your facial skin.
Benefits of Juvederm®
- Juvederm® injections are ideal for the wrinkles and fine lines on your forehead and between your eyes, as well as your crow’s feet.
- Juvederm® can treat wrinkles between the mouth and nose, as well as wrinkles and fine lines around the lips.
- Juvederm® is also used to increase volume in your face, such as under your eyes or in your cheeks.
Juvederm® is safe to use on every type of skin and skin tone. Potential candidates should be motivated to enhance their appearance and should have realistic expectations. This treatment is not suggested for people who have active infections in their skin or who have had previous allergic reactions to the ingredients in Juvederm®.
About Juvederm® Injectable Gel
Before Juvederm® treatments, our patients are completely unhappy with the appearance of their aging skin. They have wrinkles and fine lines, as well as volume loss around their eyes and in their cheeks and lips. The Federal Drug Administration has approved Juvederm® for treating facial folds and wrinkles, and it’s recommended for the treatment of:
- Fine lip lines or lip augmentation
- Moderate to severe folds and wrinkles in the face
- Nasolabial folds
- Hollow tear trough
- Marionette lines
- Sunken temples or cheeks
Juvederm® injections occur in an office and take about 15 to 30 minutes for the first visit. Prior to the injection, the surface of your skin is cleaned with an antiseptic. The doctor then selects and marks the sites of injection just before administering Juvederm® below the dermis.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
Because each Juvederm® patient has different needs, you’ll want to discuss Juvederm® prices with a member of Dr. Lodge’s staff. The friendly and knowledgeable team at Cool Springs MD is available for one-on-one consultations to discuss pricing, as well as answer any questions or ease any concerns you may have about receiving Juvederm®. We’re happy to provide you with all the information you need to reach your aesthetic goals.
How Juvederm® Works
We advise our patients to be open and honest with the Cool Springs MD staff about your medical history, recovery goals and expected results. The consultation includes a physical exam and a talk about Juvederm®.
Before the treatment, you can request a numbing agent be applied to the injection sites after they are cleansed if you are uncomfortable with the pain from injections. Dr. Lodge or his trained nurse will then inject Juvederm® carefully below your skin.
Immediately after the injections, you may feel like your skin is fuller than usual. You might also have some temporary redness and swelling. Juvederm® does not require downtime after receiving treatment, but Dr. Lodge might suggest that you do not drink alcohol or participate in strenuous exercise for the remainder of the day.
Juvederm® replaces the depleted levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin, and you only need one treatment to notice the improvements. Your body will eventually metabolize the injections, but the results could last for six months or longer. Long-term results can be achieved with repeat treatments.
