To improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds caused by the natural aging process, JUVÉDERM® injectable gels can help rejuvenate skin for a more youthful glow. Dr. David Zweiback provides this dermal filler at our Philadelphia, PA, practice to effectively add volume to the cheeks and lips, enhancing facial contours. Dr. Zweiback is dedicated to helping his patients achieve radiant skin they can feel proud of, which is why he can tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
JUVÉDERM is designed to address the natural signs of aging, helping patients achieve a younger-looking appearance.
What is JUVÉDERM?
Over time, skin loses its elasticity, causing areas of the face to appear sunken or flattened. However, JUVÉDERM is designed to reverse mild to moderate signs of aging, boosting collagen production and improving volume. This gel is made from hyaluronic acid, a safe and naturally occurring material found in the skin.
JUVÉDERM is designed to reverse mild to moderate signs of aging, boosting collagen production and improving volume.
Whereas BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles to limit movements that cause fine lines and wrinkles, JUVÉDERM is injected below the surface of the skin to fill facial folds and enhance thin lips and hollow cheeks. Compared to Restylane®, JUVÉDERM has a smoother texture, making it ideal for addressing even the smallest lines and wrinkles.
Areas JUVÉDERM Can Target
We offer a variety of fillers in the JUVÉDERM family, designed to target specific areas of the face including the forehead, cheeks, mouth, and lips.This dermal filler is often used to treat:
- Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines
- Melomental folds, or lines around the chin
- Fine lines around the lips
- Frown lines on the forehead and in between the eyes
- Lines around and under the eyes
- Thin lips
- Hollow, sunken cheeks
- Veins on the back of hands
During your consultation, our team can evaluate your skin and review your cosmetic goals to determine whether JUVÉDERM is right for you.
What to Expect During Treatment
If you decide to proceed with treatment, Dr. Zweiback can apply a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort. He can then carefully inject the material into target areas, gently massaging the surrounding skin to ensure optimal results.
JUVÉDERM treatment can generally be completed in 30 minutes, and you can immediately return to daily activity once the procedure is finished. For the first 24 hours, you may experience some redness and swelling around the injection sites. However, these minor side effects should fade fairly quickly. Within two to three weeks of treatment, you should begin to see improved facial contours and smoother skin. Depending upon the type of filler used, results can last up to two years.
To help you achieve more prominent, longer-lasting results, Dr. Zweiback can combine your JUVÉDERM filler with one of our other cosmetic dermatology treatments, such as PRP facial rejuvenation or laser therapy.
