Hyaluronic acid is a substance that enhances the smoothness and youthfulness of your skin by binding and holding water molecules, a property that makes it particularly useful in anti-aging formulations. Juvederm® is a type of dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and creases near the mouth and nose. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, is proud to offer Juvederm® to those residents who want to soften the presence of fine lines and wrinkles in achieving a more youthful appearance.

What is Juvederm®?

Juvederm® is a dermal filler treatment that can help you appear more youthful and refreshed by reducing facial lines and wrinkles. It contains hyaluronic acid. This special substance has the ability to both attract and hold many times its own weight in water. This is one reason our skin is more supple and hydrated in our youth, as opposed to old age.

Hyaluronic acid naturally moisturizes and smooths your face, but this important substance declines as you age. Juvederm® works by selectively restoring hyaluronic acid levels in areas where it is needed the most. When it is injected into areas displaying signs of lines, wrinkles and creases, Juvederm® goes to work, adding moisture, plumpness and volume to the surrounding skin.

Juvederm® Benefits

Juvederm® is a great treatment choice for those desiring a more youthful face, but who would like to avoid surgery.

Juvederm® benefits include:

  • Treatment is fast, taking only 60 minutes or less
  • Immediate results
  • Results that appear natural due to natural hyaluronic acid
  • Non-surgical treatment
  • Minimal side effects and no downtime

Would I make a good candidate for Juvederm® treatment?

Juvederm® works by supplementing hyaluronic acid to the skin. The treatment has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of those 18 and older who desire more radiant, youthful skin.

Good candidates for Juvederm® treatment include those with:

  • Moderate to severe folds, lines, and wrinkles on their face
  • Thin or wrinkled lips
  • Expression lines
  • Unwanted shape or facial contours

During your initial consultation, you may share your individual goals and needs to be addressed by your Juvederm® treatment. This information will allow us to craft a unique treatment plan that is tailored just for your own individual needs.

The Juvederm® Treatment Process

When you arrive for your Juvederm® treatment, the actual appointment will not take very long. First, we will apply a numbing agent to the treatment area. We use a special method that helps evenly distribute the product throughout the upper skin layer. Juvederm® will begin working right away and your results should be immediately noticeable.

After treatment, it is normal to experience some minor redness, stiffness and swelling at the treatment site. These effects are only temporary and should resolve themselves on their own. If you wish to speed the process, applying an ice pack to the area will help with any minimal side effects you may be experiencing.

How long will my Juvederm® treatment results last?

Your treatment results should last as long as one year. The product will be gradually absorbed and metabolized by your body. Follow up treatments will help you maintain your results and restore the hyaluronic acid that your body has absorbed.

How much does Juvederm® treatment cost for Jacksonville residents?

Since Juvederm® is considered to be a cosmetic treatment, its costs are not normally covered by insurance plans. However, we accept numerous payment options at Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, including cash, checks, and major credit cards. Financing is also available.

Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery is the leading facial plastic surgery center on the First Coast. As a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, specializing solely in cosmetic facial procedures, Dr. Phillip Garcia provides his North Florida patients with exceptional skills and results that last.
