"Dr. Ramanadham is one of the most skilled and compassionate doctors I have ever seen. She produced fantastic results with the treatments she recommended, and she also was clear in steering me away from other treatments that I thought I wanted but she didn't think I needed or would work well for me. I have seen her for botox treatments and skin care advice and treatments for over two years."- _. / RealSelf / Feb 07, 2019

Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm treatments usually only last around 15 – 30 minutes based on the number of areas being treated. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be marked. To minimize discomfort throughout the treatment, Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine (a local anesthetic). Following your procedure, you can resume your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, like exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your injections to prevent moving the gel into unintended areas.
You should see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm treatment, but you could also see light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for about 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm injections typically last as long as a year. Several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after a few years of injections. Talk to Dr. Ramanadham about how soon to schedule your next treatment at our practice to maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your injection treatment, a personalized injection plan will be created to match your aesthetic goals. Once this is done, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Though many patients do not think it is needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you are concerned about any discomfort. After the injection, you might experience mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should subside within a week. Please contact us if you have any severe discomfort or signs of infection following your Juvéderm injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Fillers and relaxers address facial wrinkles but in different ways. Wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, work to smooth dynamic wrinkles created by frequent muscle movements. Juvéderm is an injectable wrinkle filler that improves static wrinkles and adds volume. Juvéderm is ideal for treating mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait a few days to view the complete improvements from your Juvéderm injections. Typically, it takes only one treatment appointment to reach your desired outcome. However, you may make a follow-up appointment if you want to enhance your results or increase volume.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last anywhere from 1 – 2 years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower, depending on the speed at which your body absorbs the filler.
