At Landon Plastic Surgery in Tampa, many of our patients seek non-surgical methods to restore aging facial skin.
Among the most popular dermal fillers in our practice is Juvederm, a trusted name in aesthetic medical solutions. Juvederm fillers are excellent for patients that wish to have immediately more youthful skin without the downtime or expense of cosmetic surgery. Working alongside our team of trained facial injectors, patients can have an individualized treatment plan catered to their every anti-aging need. Our clinic serves patients throughout the Tampa area and beyond.
Fill wrinkles and provide nonsurgical enhancement to improve facial contours for a more harmonious face. This helps a patient look more youthful and attractive, without any obvious signs of having work done. Juvederm is composed of a gentle hyaluronic acid gel for patients seeking to correct mild to moderate signs of facial aging. It is generally used for signs of aging in the mid-face and lower face, providing instant correction of numerous cosmetic concerns without going under the knife. Juvederm is useful for the following nonsurgical aesthetic purposes:
Our Tampa Juvederm treatment is suitable for many patients and a diverse array of clinical applications. However, not everyone is a good fit for the procedure. The ideal candidate for Juvederm is someone that:
Juvederm injections may be performed the same day as the consultation if the patient chooses to move forward with the procedure. The injections take only a few minutes and produce minimal discomfort. Lidocaine, a numbing agent, is mixed into many Juvederm products to make the injection more comfortable. You’ll feel a quick pinch as the injection is administered, followed by a slight feeling of pressure as the cannula or syringe is depressed. In moments, you can look in the mirror to view the instant Juvederm results.
Common Juvederm side effects include temporary redness, swelling, mild bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. The Juvederm lip enhancement procedure tends to produce the most pronounced swelling since thin lip skin is more delicate than other areas of the face that may be treated. Our Tampa Juvederm experts state that swelling will subside in just a few days.
That means our injection specialist can choose the facial filler that is most compatible with your chosen area of correction. For example, Juvederm lip fillers may have a softer gel formulation than those that are used for deep wrinkles. Deep wrinkle fillers require a stronger formulation to maintain shape, particularly in highly expressive areas of the face such as smile lines around the mouth (nasolabial folds). Juvederm products that are available at our practice include:
During your consultation for Juvederm Tampa plastic surgeon Dr. Landon starts with a discussion about the specific signs of facial aging that are most concerning to you. Those interested in Juvederm fillers for wrinkles may be asked to make facial expressions as part of a skin assessment that is performed by the injector. This helps to make the target wrinkles more readily visible so that the appropriate number of Juvederm vials (measured in cc’s) may be used. Like many of our patients, we seek to provide a natural result that does not look obvious or overdone. Fillers are great for providing a noticeable, yet subtle, Juvederm result.
