Juvederm Treatments in St. Augustine And Ponte Vedra
Juvederm is a smooth gel dermal filler that is often prescribed by our physician, Dr. Kalpana DePasquale, to reduce the effects of aging, and soften deep facial folds. It is made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance found in the muscles, tendons, and skin of mammals. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006, Juvederm treatments help St. Augustine patients regain a youthful look by correcting issues such as:
- Smile Lines
- Nasolabial Folds
- Lip Augmentation*
- Marionette Lines
- Acne Scars*
- Hollow Areas*
- Facial Wrinkles*
On average it takes about six to nine months for the hyaluronic acid filler to be completely absorbed by the body. Temporary side effects of using Juvederm include tenderness, redness and pain at the injection site. Patients with severe allergies shouldn't use Juvederm especially if they are allergic to bacterial proteins or have a history of anaphylaxis.
Juvederm injections feed basic nutrients directly into the skin to help you maintain a youthful look at any age. If you're tired of looking at an older face in the mirror, contact us at 904.461.6797 or use this website's contact form to request an appointment.
*OFF LABEL USE:
Most dermal fillers and injectables are FDA approved for one and in some cases several specified treatment area(s). However, physicians can use dermal filler/injectable products to treat conditions in non-FDA approved areas. This common standard of care is referred to as “Off Label” use. Using a product in an Off Label area is under the Physician’s discretion, and the physician has full jurisdiction to decide where to use a dermal filler/injectable for treatment in any Off Label location.
