Our Juvéderm in Worcester treatments are a gel-like hyaluronic acid dermal filler material that produces a significant improvement in facial appearance – when it is professionally administered.
Juvéderm has been safely used as an anti-aging treatment for many years. Juvéderm is made through a patented process that connects the hyaluronic acid molecules to produce a longer-lasting result.
While treatments for Juvederm in Worcester have become broadly available, you simply cannot take any risk with a facial filler. Administering too much will leave your face looking misshapen and unnatural. It is imperative that your treatment is performed with the highest level of skill and experience to achieve natural-looking results. Under the direction of Dr. Fechner, a double board certified plastic surgeon, you can be confident that your treatment will be maximized to produce a more youthful, rejuvenated look that appears natural and fresh.
Juvéderm comes in a range of formulas, each developed to treat a specific facial area.
The family of products includes:
Juvéderm in Worcester is an exciting development in aesthetic technology. Dr. Fechner’s broad experience with various soft tissue fillers allows him to select the correct dermal filler for specific facial areas.
Juvéderm is effective for softening deep facial furrows and creases, including:
Over the last decade, hyaluronic acid (HA) based skin fillers have emerged as efficient compounds to smooth unattractive creases and wrinkles. This category of dermal fillers produces superior results to earlier generation fillers, and has the added benefits of improved longevity, safety and a natural feel. The results typically last for six months or longer. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound found in human skin, and contributes to skin suppleness, pliability and softness.
Juvéderm has many beneficial characteristics, including:
Normal hyaluronic acid is broken down in a relatively short period of time. Juvéderm features better longevity due to a patented cross-linking of hyaluronic acid molecules. This extensive network of bridging bonds breaks down more slowly than earlier generations of HA fillers.
The exact time Juvéderm injections will continue to soften and smooth lines and furrows depends on multiple factors including the specific facial region treated, the amount injected, skin type, and the patient’s unique physiology. For nasolabial folds (laugh lines), Juvéderm results typically last up to nine months. The rich blood supply to the lips means Juvéderm injections to lips may last a shorter period, in the range of six months.
Dr. Fechner routinely numbs the treatment area prior to Juvéderm injections. The local anesthetic allows for a painless treatment experience.
Although there is often a gentle puffiness after injections with Juvéderm, this usually does not limit the patient’s ability to live life as normal, including work and social activities. Although a possibility, bruising is uncommon.
Usually, little preparation prior to getting Juvéderm injections will be needed. We do recommend not taking aspirin or ibuprofen one week before your appointment to further minimize the possibility of bruising. If you plan to have a lip enhancement and have frequent cold sores, Dr. Fechner may recommend short prophylactic treatment with an antiviral medication prior to your lip enhancement.
You are not restricted after your treatment and you can continue your usual makeup and skincare regimen. Avoid strenuous exercise for a minimum of 12 hours after your Worcester Juvéderm injections. Also avoid direct sun exposure or visits to a tanning salon or sauna for three days after your treatment. Dr. Fechner recommends gentle massage of the areas treated and will show you exactly what to do. Ice compresses help to reduce the appearance of swelling or puffiness.
The use of Juvéderm products on various facial flaws can help you look young, fresh, and vital – without surgery. Above all, you want to be confident that your injections are performed by a skilled professional who understands the product and how to create a very natural, subtle improvement.
Dr. Fechner has garnered a reputation for his professional skills as a plastic surgeon, as well as the ability to produce an attractive improvement in facial appearance with carefully injected Juvéderm products. His Worcester clinic is discreet, luxurious, and a destination for those seeking enhancement in the Boston area.

On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.
As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.
The upgraded work flow and safety protocols we have implemented at Fechner MD far exceed those being recommended by any government agency.
Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this time, and we look forward to seeing you here again as we begin to resume business operations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa at (508) 754-4000 and our team will gladly assist you. Thank you!
