Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin that works to keep the skin moist and agile. With natural aging, this valuable component naturally decreases. Juvéderm is an F.D.A.-approved, hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that lasts up to a full year. Its smooth-consistency gel adds volume and hydration to the skin. A common treatment area for a Juvéderm injections are the areas on both sides of the face where smile lines appear (also known as the nasolabial folds). Florida plastic surgeon, Dr. Kesh Nawada believes Juvéderm is a good injection treatment in areas where wrinkles reside closely together because, once injected, Juvéderm spreads beyond the actual injection site to fill a larger area. Dr. Nawada offers many different brands of injectable wrinkle fillers and relaxers at his practice in central Florida and he will help patients understand the differences and the best choices for their needs during their initial consultation.
- Juvéderm XC - for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
- Juvéderm Ultra XC - for injection into the lips and perioral area for lip augmentation in adults over 21.

During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the possible comfort of local anesthesia and a numbing solution contained within Juvederm, the filler will be injected into the skin. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied to the area. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Juvederm procedure.
What to Expect@headingTag>
The majority of patients who receive Juvederm will notice remarkable improvements after their very first treatment with results lasting up to one year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, Juvederm side effects are intriguingly minimal with no missed time from normal activity.
The average cost for a syringe of Juvederm ranges between $400-$1,000. The cost will vary based on the size of the area and the desired result.

Will The Injection Hurt?@headingTag>
The injection may cause some discomfort, although the size of the needle is very small. Lidocaine, a numbing solution, is contained within Juvederm to help diminish pain after the treatment. Our team will work hard to ensure patient comfort, and may choose to apply a local anesthetic to numb the area.
What Other Anti-Aging Options?@headingTag>
Although fillers have proved to be a terrific solution to make skin appear younger, there are other options to consider. Fat grafting, BOTOX and Dysport, as well as plastic surgery, all hold the potential to provide tremendous improvements to the skin. During the initial consultation, our team will discuss the comprehensive options and give recommendations for the absolute best procedure tailored to each patient’s desired outcome. This may include a combination of cosmetic treatments.

It is important to set realistic expectations. This will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
