JUVÉDERM and the JUVÉDERM family of products have become a very popular choice to add volume and reduce wrinkles on the face and hands. At the Aesthetic Surgery Institute, Dr. Do offers minimally invasive treatments with JUVÉDERM in Houston.
JUVÉDERM treatments use a collection of fillers to plump lips, improve facial contours, and reduce lines and wrinkles. JUVÉDERM’s effects are longer-lasting than other products, including collagen and fat injections, making it one of the most sought-after facial fillers on the market today. JUVÉDERM products are formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body.
Hyaluronic acid helps keep skin plump and hydrated, but as we age we lose some of this natural dermal filler. Using a formulation like JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® in Houston, Dr. Do can restore the hyaluronic acid to smooth and contour the cheeks and jawline. These minimally invasive JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® injections continue to draw moisture to the skin over time, and results last for months.
Like other dermal fillers, JUVÉDERM is injected into the treatment area in a simple, quick procedure. Many JUVÉDERM formulations contain lidocaine, which helps minimize discomfort during the injection. The effects of JUVÉDERM are immediate and enduring, lasting 6 to 9 months.
JUVÉDERM can be used for facial rejuvenation in conjunction with other products, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, for more dramatic results. Dr. Do will counsel you on whether JUVÉDERM injections alone or in combination with another product or procedure will work best to achieve your desired look.
JUVÉDERM is appropriate for all areas of the face, including the lips, chin, nose, cheeks, and forehead. It effectively reduces lines, creases, and wrinkles, and it can be used to improve facial contours and reduce acne scars. Some formulations of JUVÉDERM can also be used on the backs of the hands.

JUVÉDERM® treatment in Houston is not recommended if you:
Because the active ingredient in JUVÉDERM occurs naturally in the body, it is very unlikely that you would be allergic to it. Some formulations contain lidocaine, so you should alert Dr. Do if you have any known allergies. This treatment is considered safe and effective for all ethnicities and skin types.
The overall cost of JUVÉDERM treatments will depend on exactly which procedures you need. After a free consultation, you will be given an estimate of the costs involved. The Aesthetic Surgery Institute offers financing options for patients who qualify to help manage the cost of treatment.
JUVÉDERM is available by prescription only and should be administered by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon for safety reasons, for natural-looking results, and to reduce the risk of complications. These treatments are highly affordable when compared to cosmetic surgery.
Because these treatments are non-surgical and gentle, there is no required downtime and you may resume normal activities as soon as you leave our office. You may use over-the-counter medications to deal with any tenderness and apply ice to reduce swelling if it occurs. You should avoid strenuous activities, alcohol, and exposure to sun and heat for 24 hours after treatment.
JUVÉDERM is approved by the FDA as a safe dermal filler, and is biocompatible, meaning it is non-toxic and compatible with your own living tissues; this biocompatibility means the product poses a low risk of allergic reaction and side effects.
Uncommon but possible side effects do include swelling at the injection site, pain, tenderness, bruising, discoloration, lumps/bumps, and a risk of infection. The skilled team at the Aesthetic Surgery Institute takes every precaution to minimize risks and complications.
JUVÉDERM is more concentrated than Restylane and may be used over or in combination with Restylane or Radiesse. You do not need to wait for these other products to naturally dissolve before having a JUVÉDERM treatment.
Your first treatment with JUVÉDERM in Houston is expected to last from 6 to 9 months. If you choose additional treatments to touch up your look, these have a tendency to last longer, sometimes up to a year. It is usually recommended to repeat the procedure before the first treatment has completely dissolved.
