Juvederm® in Princeton and Monroe, NJ
The aging process takes a toll on your skin. Your body produces less collagen, elastin and other natural substances that give younger skin a healthy and glowing appearance. Juvederm® is specially formulated to replenish the hyaluronic acid in your skin to restore volume and even tone. Learn how Juvederm® treatments can help you by scheduling your personal consultation with board-certified New Jersey otolaryngologist Dr. Scott Kay, FACS, at our the Central New Jersey area office, which serves the communities of Princeton and Plainsboro.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a specially formulated injectable treatment that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that naturally occurs in your body. Like collagen and elastin, though, your body produces less HA as you get older. Without these vital components of young skin, the underlying structures of your skin weaken. Eventually, the skin “collapses” to form lines and wrinkles. Juvederm® treatments replenish the HA in your skin to strengthen the underlying structure and “fill in” the lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Juvederm®
Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler that:
- Takes less than one hour per treatment
- Produces natural looking results
- Works with elastin and collagen in the skin
- Offers long-lasting results
- Corrects lines and wrinkles without surgery
How is Juvederm® Administered?
Juvederm® is injected into your skin with a very small gauge needle. For most patients, the injections produce far less discomfort than vaccinations. A topical numbing cream may be applied if you have a sensitivity to needles. As Dr. Kay injects Juvederm® into your skin, the hyaluronic acid adds volume to lines and wrinkles for a smooth and youthful appearance.
Preparing for Juvederm®
Juvederm® treatments require no special preparation. After your consultation with Dr. Kay, we schedule your treatment appointments. You only need to set aside an hour of your day for your Juvederm® treatment.
Because Juvederm® treatments are minimally invasive, recovery is quite minimal. In fact, most of our patients simply return to their daily schedules after their appointments. The injections may cause some symptoms, such as bruising, tenderness, mild swelling, and redness. Usually, these symptoms are isolated to the injection sites.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
Dr. Kay discusses your Juvederm® treatments during your consultation. He explains the number of injections for each appointment and the frequency of follow-up appointments. Based on this information, we give you a complete cost of your Juvederm® treatments. We accept personal checks, most major credit cards, cash, and CareCredit® financing.
