JUVÉDERM® – Houston & Katy
Over time, your skin can lose its elasticity, causing it to wrinkle and fold. The hyaluronic acid (HA) found in your facial skin diminishes as you age, contributing to this aging effect. At the Whitsett Vision Group, we offer JUVÉDERM® dermal filler to our Houston and Katy patients who want to look as young as they feel. JUVÉDERM® replaces the skin’s natural HA, rejuvenating the volume and smoothness of your face. This natural-looking enhancement can provide you with a fresh appearance and boost of confidence in just fifteen minutes.
Dr. Cybele Woon has helped countless patients achieve their aesthetic goals with JUVÉDERM™ injections and is always excited to show new patients what the treatment can do for them. If you are interested in reducing the lines and folds on your face and want to place your trust in the hands of one of the area’s most successful doctors, we invite you to contact the Whitsett Vision Group. Our highly trained staff can change your life with this simple procedure.
JUVÉDERM® – Long-lasting Dermal Filler
JUVÉDERM® works to rejuvenate a number of different problem areas, such as the smile lines (sometimes referred to as “parentheses”), marionette lines, and vertical lip lines. By replacing the essential HA in your skin, your face will look naturally full and much smoother. Everyone will notice that your look has improved, but no one will know why. Results can last six months to a year, at which point the filler will be absorbed naturally by the body.
During the JUVÉDERM® clinical trial, the quality of the product was proven. Participants were unaware which injection they were receiving and 90 percent of the individuals preferred JUVÉDERM®. This product stands above other HA dermal fillers with its naturally smooth consistency. Many of the leading competitors of JUVÉDERM® take on a granular consistency, but this top-quality treatment flows easily into the skin, providing a natural and attractive look.
Understanding the Procedure
Before you undergo JUVÉDERM® treatment at our Houston or Katy facility, Dr. Woon may suggest that you avoid taking medications that can increase the risk of bruising or bleeding, such as aspirin or anti-inflammatories. Dr. Woon will also conduct a thorough examination of your medical history, discuss your expectations, and inquire about any allergies you may have while carefully walking you through the injection process. The depth of the wrinkles and folds that you wish to eliminate will be closely assessed to determine how best to personalize your treatment.
A topical anesthetic may be used for the treatment, although many times, it is unnecessary. The JUVÉDERM® filler will then be slowly and gently injected under your skin. The treatment only lasts about fifteen minutes and you will see immediate results. These results are known to last upwards of a year, and as the gel settles into your skin, your results will continue to improve.
Strenuous exercise, consumption of alcohol, and extended exposure to sun or heat should be avoided for the 24 hours following the procedure. Temporary tenderness, swelling, or slight bruising is a normal post-surgical effect, and should clear up within a week.
