Juvéderm is 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.

Why Dr. Fechner?

While Juvederm treatments 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.

The Juvéderm Family of Dermal Fillers

Juvéderm comes in a range of formulas, each developed to treat a specific facial area.

The family of products includes:

  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC: Developed to enhance cheek volume, this product lasts up to two years.
  • Juvéderm® XC: An injectable gel that smooths moderate to severe smile lines around nose and mouth.
  • Juvéderm Ultra® XC: With added lidocaine for patient comfort, this filler smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around mouth and nose, and to bring added fullness to the lips.
  • Juvéderm Vollure™ XC: Smooths “parentheses lines” and wrinkles, and vertical lip lines, softening the mouth are for a younger, smoother look lasting up to eighteen months.

Lasting Improvement for Facial Furrows and Creas

Juvéderm 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:

  • Laugh Lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial Creases
  • Frown Lines

Advanced Anti-Aging Technology: Juvéderm

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 Benefits

Juvéderm has many beneficial characteristics, including:

  • It is synthesized in the laboratory
  • It does NOT require skin testing
  • It is NOT made from animals or human body materials
  • It is a transparent HA gel that creates a natural feel
  • It is relatively long-lasting

Long-Lasting Dermal Filler

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.

Is there pain associated With Juvéderm treatments?

Dr. Fechner routinely numbs the treatment area prior to Juvéderm injections. The local anesthetic allows for a painless treatment experience.

How long is recovery after Juvéderm injections?

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.

Before a Juvéderm Treatment

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.

After Juvéderm Injections

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 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.

A Younger You – That Looks Fresh and Natural

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 a 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.
