Are you tired of looking tired? How many people have asked you if you're getting enough sleep? Wrinkles and fine lines around our juvedermmouths, eyes and nose really can make us look older and well, just plain worn out--even when we're not! What's the solution? In Clemmons and Winston-Salem, NC, Juvederm injections provide the smoothing, rejuvenating look you long for. At Wake Forest Baptist Health Facial Plastic Surgery, your board-certified facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Jordan Wallin and Dr. Brian Downs give their patients the aesthetic boost they need quickly and comfortably. Learn the details about Juvederm here.

Juvederm works wonders

What is Juvederm? FDA-approved in 2006, Juvederm injections deliver naturally-derived hyaluronic acid to areas of the face that are prone to dynamic wrinkling--that is, around the eyes, nose and sides of the mouth. These lines which occur when facial muscles move during smiling or frowning add to a tired, aged appearance. But in just 30 minutes, your Clemmons and Winston-Salem facial plastic surgeon can fill those wrinkles with a unique, non-allergenic gel which instantly produces youthful-looking results.

To start, Dr. Wallin or Dr. Downs will prep the areas of the face with an anesthetic cream. Then, the doctor carefully injects the Juvederm preparation. Areas can include:

  • The line between the mouth and the chin
  • The folds beside the nose
  • Cheeks (to restore volume)
  • Upper lip

Most patients say they feel comfortable during the injections and experience only very minor bruising, puffiness and soreness afterward.

Before and after Juvederm

After each treatment, they resume normal activities the next day, including work and exercise at the gym. Bruising is very minimal and may be covered with the individual's usual cosmetics.

Look good, feel great

Cosmetic facial procedures increase self-image. Frankly, when you look refreshed, you feel more outgoing and confident. Juvederm helps patients look like themselves, only better.
