Overview

At Cosmetic Surgery Specialists in Langhorne, Bucks County, PA, Dr. Alan Brackup has resisted the temptation to adopt a new product until the safety profile is well established, which is why he feels confident using the Juvéderm family of injectable fillers on his valued patients.

One of the most popular injectable dermal fillers, Juvéderm XC treats moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the face. Juvéderm XC is proven to be safe, effective, and provides results that can last up to one year. Juvéderm is made with hyaluronic acid, which stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin in the skin for long-term benefits. At your consultation, double board-certified cosmetic surgeon and ophthalmologist Dr. Brackup will discuss the pros and cons of the multiple dermal filler products currently available, and help you create a unique treatment plan for your needs and cosmetic goals.

What to Expect

Juvéderm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvéderm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.

Juvéderm FAQs

How Painful?

This procedure is almost pain-free. This really is determined on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.

Anti-Aging Alternative?

Derma fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX® and Dysport®. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.

Back to 20?

It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvederm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
