Injectable Fillers

Juvéderm®

With injectable dermal fillers like Juvéderm®, you can significantly diminish the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines along the face, as well as add volume and contour to facial features such as the lips and cheeks. Juvéderm® is quickly becoming one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic enhancements available due to its effectiveness and long-lasting results. Dr. Patrick Sullivan can improve the appearance of hollowness in the cheeks, add fullness and definition to the lips, and reduce signs of aging in the face with Juvéderm®.

How Juvéderm® Works

Juvéderm® is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. This means that there is typically no allergy testing or waiting period required for treatment. During the Juvéderm® procedure, an injection of Juvéderm® will be made with an ultra-fine needle in the areas targeted for treatment. The injected areas can be numbed before treatment to minimize discomfort. With Juvéderm®, the lips can be made fuller and more contoured for a more youthful, sensual appearance; volume can be added to the cheeks to reduce a hollowed look; and/or deep wrinkles and fine lines can be filled in for a smoother aesthetic.

The entire Juvéderm® procedure typically takes only 30 minutes or less, and results are almost immediate. Although there may be some temporary bruising, swelling, or redness, there is usually no downtime associated with Juvéderm® treatment, and most patients can resume normal daily activities right after the procedure.

Results from Juvéderm® can last six to nine months, and in some cases even longer. The effects of Juvéderm® can be maintained by occasional follow-up treatments.

With Juvéderm®, you can achieve significant wrinkle reduction and more defined facial features, and you can do it over your lunch hour! Please contact Dr. Patrick Sullivan for more information, or to schedule a consultation.
