Juvéderm™ Dermal Fillers
Experience Facial Rejuvenation with Juvéderm Treatment
Juvéderm treatments help restore a youthful appearance by delivering volume to the skin on the face, primarily around lips, cheeks, and chin. Dr. Barba is a certified Juvéderm provider and commonly treats patients in the areas of lip augmentation (plumping), cheekbone augmentation, nasolabial folds (parentheses around the mouth), melolabial folds (marionette lines from your mouth to your chin) and jawline redefinition (sagging jowls).
How Juvéderm Treatment Works
As we get older, the production of collagen naturally slows down. This is when a patient begins to notice signs of aging, like lines and wrinkles on the face or thinning of the lips. Juvéderm is a dermal filler that works by adding volume back to the skin. It is a gel-like substance containing a modified form of hyaluronic acid, or HA. HA binds to water in the skin, which helps smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles and adds volume back to facial features. Juvéderm can act as a replacement for lost collagen as well as encourage the production of new collagen.
At your Barba ReFresh appointment, Dr. Barba will discuss your areas of concern and create a customized treatment plan. Any questions you have, such as, “How much does Juvéderm cost?” or “Is this the right treatment for me?” will be answered. Juvéderm treatment takes about 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the extent of treatment. Immediate results will be seen and final results by three weeks. It can last between six to eighteen months.
Juvéderm has become a popular complement to cosmetic dental procedures because treatment can be administered while a patient is already at the dental office. Dr. Barba is ready to show you Juvéderm before and after photos as well as discuss treatment options.
Before starting this or any treatment, always speak with Dr. Valerie Barba about your concerns. A thorough medical history is reviewed to ensure safety. You may also consult your medical doctor about important safety information and approved uses pertinent to your personal medical status.
