Am I a Candidate for Juvederm?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Look and feel younger

While there are a lot of wrinkle creams, peels, and injectables on the market that claim to be able to work miracles, few are actually effective in minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Juvederm is an FDA approved injectable dermal filler that many people rely on to help turn back the hands of time. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi with VIP Plastic Surgery treats many of his Las Vegas, NV patients with Juvederm. Juvederm can correct multiple issues and leave your skin looking more youthful and radiant. If you’re wondering if Juvederm can solve your issues read further to see if you’re a good candidate for this treatment.

If you look in the mirror and see some imperfections like the ones mentioned below, Juvederm may be an excellent treatment option for you.

  • Thin lips

As we age, we begin to lose collagen in our lips and they end up looking thinner. Juvederm is an excellent option to add volume back into the lips and perfect your pout. It can create a shapely, voluptuous look that can last for months.

  • Acne and minor scars

Juvederm can help smooth out and reduce the appearance of minor scars, including ones caused by acne (known as “pits”). Once injected into the scar, the surface can turn smooth and appear flat. You’ll finally be able to look in the mirror and be relieved that some of those scars that have caused you some insecurity are not diminished.

  • Sunken cheeks

Juvederm can add volume to areas that are starting to become sunken in or hollow, such as the cheeks, chin, and jaw area. Voluma is one such filler in the Juvederm family that is great at filling in larger areas and creating dramatic contour without surgery. It has become of the most popular fillers for cheek augmentation.

  • Nose imperfections

In addition to correcting lines and wrinkles, Juvederm can also be used for nonsurgical rhinoplasty procedures for men and women who wish to correct minor nasal imperfections. Juvederm can be injected into the top areas of the skin’s surface to help add volume to the nasal tip and to camouflage small bumps and imperfections.

  • Under eye bags

No matter how tired you may feel, you definitely don’t want others to be able to see it. Juvederm can rejuvenate your face and make your eyes appear brighter and your face refreshed. Once volume is added to the under eye area, the sunken in bags that once existed can look greatly diminished, adding a softening effect to the skin resulting in a face that looks smoother and well-rested.

  • Lines around the nose and mouth

Another pesky side effect of aging includes the lines that begin to form around your nose and mouth. These lines are often called smile lines or parenthesis lines due to the shape they make on either side of the mouth. Juvederm can smooth and reduce the appearance of these lines so you can smile without hesitation.

Keep in mind...

Although Juvederm injections are non-invasive, you still need to be in good health, both physically and mentally in order to be considered a good candidate for this procedure. You also need to have realistic expectations going into your appointment. While Juvederm is effective at reducing lines and wrinkles; it will not make you look like an entirely different person.

If you’re still on the fence about Juvederm, know that there are many great benefits associated with this procedure and why countless Las Vegas area men and women flock to our practice to get their injections:

Minimal downtime

One of the many pros of this procedure is that the downtime is minimal. Some patients even schedule their appointments during their lunch break and immediately return back to work following the procedure. There’s a small chance you may experience a little redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site, but this typically resolves within a few hours or days following treatment.

Long lasting

The results from a single Juvederm procedure can last up to a full year. If you notice more wrinkles beginning to appear, or if the results wear off quicker than you’d like, you can always schedule another treatment session at our Las Vegas office.

Add more or less

Another good thing about Juvederm is that you can always adjust the amount of filler used at each treatment. If you want to see more volume in certain areas then more filler can be used, if you notice new lines or wrinkles that weren’t obvious at your last visit, well those can be treated, too. The amount of Juvederm and areas treated can always be modified in order to accommodate your needs.

Instant results

Unlike many treatments that require multiple steps or visits before ever seeing any results, you can expect to witness instant results with Juvederm. Once the redness and swelling dissipate, you’ll be able to see exact how much Juvederm has improved your appearance. The lines and wrinkles that were plaguing your face will now be a thing of the past and your smooth and vibrant skin will keep you coming back for more.
