Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Juvederm® Treatment in Clear Lake, TX
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler that treats lines, creases, and wrinkles by adding volume and fullness to the skin. Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is the secret behind the amazing results of Juvederm® treatments. HA is a natural substance that binds with water to keep your skin hydrated.
Like collagen, our bodies produce less HA as we get older, and, as a result, our skin cells essentially become dehydrated, thus developing wrinkles. When the amount of HA in skin cells is increased with Juvederm® injections, the skin cells are once again hydrated and able to retain moisture. As the cells plump up with water, the lines and wrinkles disappear.

How are Juvederm® Treatments Administered?
Juvederm® injections must be placed properly along the targeted lines on your face to achieve a consistent reduction in wrinkles, while maintaining a natural appearance. Juvederm® is administered with a very small needle that is well-tolerated by most patients. Juvederm® contains lidocaine to further improve patient comfort during treatment. If you have an aversion to needles or are especially sensitive to injections, we can apply a numbing cream to your skin. Most patients require several Juvederm® injections for optimum results. This ensures that the HA is evenly distributed and can be absorbed by the skin cells where you have lines, creases, and wrinkles. You may feel a slight pressure as the smooth HA-enriched gel enters the skin. Juvederm® treatments take 30 to 60 minutes.
