Juvéderm is long-lasting gel dermal filler that replaces the hyaluronic acid (HA) that skin naturally loses from aging. HA is a natural moisturizer for the skin and when less is produced, the skin looses firmness and elasticity. This causes wrinkles in areas such as the edges of the lips and around the mouth and nose. Juvéderm is a nonsurgical treatment to restore the face’s youthful contours for those who do not want or are not ready for a full facelift. Patients desiring facial rejuvenation may schedule a consultation with Dr. Aimee Nguyen who will provide a thorough consultation and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
"I am 6 weeks post op, and Dr. Aimee Nguyen and her team made me so happy and confident! I feel like a new person in the best way possible with my amazing results. I’m so glad I chose to have surgery here because her enthusiasm towards what she did for me made it an easy choice for her to do my surgery!"- H.P. / Google / Jul 27, 2023
"I love these women so much. As a woman, going to see the gyno is maybe the least amount of fun. But they make it easy to get in for appointments, they are kind and compassionate, and they give you results quickly. I’m thankful my GP recommended them!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jul 26, 2023

"Dr. Nguyen’s office was very welcoming and efficient. Every visit was timely, very little waiting & each step was met with a friendly & capable medical staff. My gynecologist recommended Dr. Nguyen & she was so right. My surgery went very well & the results are as Dr. Nguyen promised. Very little pain & the encouragement by Dr. Nguyen made all the difference. I almost postponed my surgery due to another issue, but Chandler kept my slot open & ultimately I had my surgery. I would recommend Dr. Nguyen in a minute. The medical staff in the office to the hospital nurses, Texas Health Presby, were exceptional. Dr. Nguyen answered all my questions prior to surgery & was very helpful the day of the surgery. An overnight stay was all that was needed & home rest was next. Thanks to Dr. Nguyen & her staff I am recovering nicely. Excellent is a better rating!"- K.C. / Yelp / Apr 28, 2023
During a Juvéderm treatment, the face will be thoroughly cleansed and the areas where the injections will go in will be marked with ink. This filler product contains the numbing agent, lidocaine, so the injections cause very little discomfort, but numbing cream may be added if the patient is uncomfortable. After the injections, the Juvéderm will be massaged evenly across the face. Patients should allow 30 minutes for the actual treatment, and then 15-30 minutes to rest after the treatment. There may be some temporary redness and tingling, but usually light activity can be resumed right away and exercise can be resumed after 1 day.
Juvéderm sessions usually cost between $400 and $1,000 and the effects of one session last up to one year. The total cost is based on the amount of Juvéderm used during the session.

Juvederm Or Cosmetic Surgery?
Juvéderm, just like other cosmetic derma fillers, can create smooth, softer skin and diminish facial wrinkles for up to a full year. Over time, the effects of a filler product may decrease and at that time, patients may consider cosmetic surgery. In addition, in some cases, a filler will not help improve wrinkles, only surgery will. This is a discussion that can be had during the initial consultation.
Why Choose Juvederm?
Juvéderm is FDA approved and is shown to be safe and effective for the reduction of wrinkles. In addition, the results from a single treatment are longer lasting than some of the other fillers on the market. There are two different formulations of Juvéderm that are used for specific problem areas on the face, which means more personalized treatment planning for excellent results.
Where is it Used?
Juvéderm is usually recommended for the lips and nasolabial folds (laugh lines). It is also used to fill in the crack (the number "11") known as the glabella folds between the eyebrows. It is common to combine this filler with a wrinkle relaxer.
