What Are Juvéderm® and Dermal Fillers?
While Botox® and neuromodulators work for dynamic wrinkles, Juvéderm® and dermal fillers help with wrinkles that form when your skin does not have enough collagen and elastin. Dr. Shawn explains to his patients that collagen and elastin are key to having a youthful appearance. Collagen provides support to the skin, and elastin helps it retain shape. You can take a look at our Juvéderm® and dermal fillers before and after photos to see the changes that can be made with the treatments.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers Like Juvéderm® Cost?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation as a first step. Phone consultations are complimentary, and we charge a fee for an in-office consultation. As part of the consultation, we explain the price of your treatments with Juvéderm® and dermal fillers, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.
Who is a Good Candidate for Juvéderm® and Dermal Fillers?
Juvéderm® and dermal fillers, such as Restylane®, are recommended for men and women who always look tired or sad. This type of appearance makes you feel less confident and content with how you present yourself to others. When your skin does not have enough collagen, it is prone to the indentations of wrinkles. When elastin is low, your skin sags, which causes lower creases and a heavy look to the jaw line.
What Can I Expect During the Juvéderm® and Dermal Fillers Injections?
Juvéderm® and dermal fillers are administered via injections along and into the wrinkles. Some dermal fillers are also used to add volume to the cheeks, and this has the secondary benefit of lifting the tissue along the lower part of the face, including that which causes nasolabial folds.
How Long Will It Take Me to Recover from Injections with Juvéderm® and Dermal Fillers?
You can have similar results as what is shown in our dermal fillers and Juvéderm® before and after photos with no downtime. The injection sites may develop some short-term, minor swelling, tenderness, and bruising, but these symptoms last only one to two days. Dr. Shawn explains how often you should repeat treatment with Juvéderm® and dermal fillers to maintain the anti-aging benefits.
Can I Schedule a Consultation for Juvéderm® and Dermal Fillers?
We encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Shawn to discuss types of dermal fillers, Juvéderm® and Restylane® cost, and to review even more of our dermal filler and Restylane® before and after photos. You can schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation, or we also offer in-office consultations for a fee.
