Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Juvederm® Treatment in Webster, League City, Friendswood and Houston, TX

Patients in in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area can have wrinkles in their face filled with Juvederm® at Clear Lake Dermatology. This procedure involves injections just below the dermis to fill in wrinkles and is typically used for wrinkles around the mouth such as “parentheses lines.” Juvederm® takes only a short amount of time to complete (it could be completed over a lunch hour), and patients are able to return home and resume normal activities immediately thereafter.

Juvederm® is a gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for plump, full skin, but the amount of this acid decreases as a person ages. The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm® is artificially produced but is extremely close to the substance produced naturally by the human body.

Juvederm® Procedure

During the procedure, our doctors will determine where injections should be administered. A syringe containing Juvederm® gel is injected into the area. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes to complete, and results are noticeable immediately.

Juvederm® Post-Treatment

While most patients report no side effects, many experience tenderness or light swelling near the injection site. This typically lasts only a few days in most instances. Some of the more severe side effects include skin discoloration, bruising, or the appearance of bumps over the area where injections were given. These side effects usually go away on their own after about a week.

Juvederm® is not intended to be a permanent procedure, as the gel will be absorbed by the body over time. Most patients benefit from repeating this treatment anywhere from nine months to one year after having injections. When wrinkles begin to reappear, patients can have another procedure performed to maintain their youthful appearance.
