Recapture that youthful glow with naturally based Juvederm in Metairie.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler or injectable similar to Botox. Juvederm differs from Botox in that it is made from a substance called Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar within the body. Juvederm works by holding in water at the injection site and acting as a cushioning agent. It adds a smoother appearance to skin. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal results.
The consistency of Juvederm is that of a smooth gel, contain lidocaine to reduce pain during the procedure. When people received Juvederm treatment they report a noteable, yet natural-looking reduction of the wrinkles on their face.
People will notice, but nobody will know.
How long does Juvederm last?
Juvederm smoothes wrinkles creating a more youthful appearance for a period of around 9 months and then dissolves naturally back into the body. Results have been reported can last up to a full year.
How does JUVÉDERM work?
Healthy skin contains an abundance of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). But as you age, sunlight and other factors can reduce the amount of this chemical in your skin. Without this it causes your skin to reduce its elasticity, creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds – like those around your nose and mouth. All Juvederm does is use a chemical synthesis of this product to replenish your the hyaluronic acid in your skin, rather than freeze it like Botox.
What areas are treated with JUVÉDERM?
Juvederm is injected into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of the skin) for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Some examples include:
- Volumize folds that run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Reduce the “Marionette” creases in the corner of the mouth
- Plump up thin or aging lips
Is the Juvederm procedure painful?
Juvederm treatment is a relatively painless procedure. Any discomfort that patients may experience is usually minor and short-lived.

How Much Does 1 Syringe of JUVÉDERM Cost?
On average, one syringe for JUVÉDERM can cost between $500 to $600. Patients should prepare to budget for several treatment sessions, as frequent JUVÉDERM treatments will allow patients to maintain their desired aesthetic looks.
JUVÉDERM fillers are not typically covered by health insurance companies as they are often used for cosmetic reasons. However, we always recommend patients contact their healthcare insurance providers to determine their eligibility for coverage.
Our goal is to help patients feel the best they can in the skin they have, which is why we’re happy to work with interested patients to formulate a payment plan that meets their budgeting needs.
What Are Contraindications to the Use of JUVÉDERM?
Patients who may have severe allergic reactions to the ingredients in dermal fillers may not be a suitable candidate for JUVÉDERM treatment. JUVÉDERM is also contraindicated for patients who have active infections near or on the treated site. Other underlying health conditions such as diabetes, blood clotting disorders, and being prone to cold sores can all be contraindications to the use of JUVÉDERM. To find out whether or not you are eligible for fillers, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey James today.
What Is the Best Age to Get JUVÉDERM?
While there is no definitive “best age” to get JUVÉDERM fillers, this treatment is popular among women in their 40s or 50s who are looking to restore lost volume in the face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and achieve a more youthful appearance. Generally, most women begin getting JUVÉDERM treatment as early as 22 years old. Oftentimes, establishing a frequent routine of fillers that works for you early on can help optimize the appearance of your results.
What Are the Benefits of JUVÉDERM?
JUVÉDERM fillers can provide many benefits to the face. By filling lost volume in the skin’s sunken areas, JUVÉDERM can also be used to contour the face and define facial structures in areas that may not have been noticeable before. While also eliminating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, patients can enjoy a rejuvenated yet natural-looking facial enhancement. Investing in JUVÉDERM fillers often saves patients money and time from at-home age-defying treatments that may not guarantee long-lasting results. By trusting qualified professionals to enhance the beauty you already have through JUVÉDERM treatment, patients will be able to enjoy their new, youthful, smoother-looking skin results for months.
