Juvederm in Phoenix, AZ
Facial volume is closely tied to a youthful appearance. Unfortunately, as we get older, our faces lose volume, resulting in sagging skin and contours that have a less rounded appearance. Juvederm® helps restore facial volume by replenishing the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin. Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers Juvederm® treatments at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, for men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid (HA). HA has the unique characteristic of attracting and binding with water molecules to give the skin a fuller appearance. The additional hydration essentially “plumps” the skin to fill in lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Juvederm®
Men and women benefit from Juvederm® treatments because the product:
- Treats deeper creases and folds
- Provides an alternative to surgery
- Requires no downtime
- Injections take less than one hour
- Immediate results
- No additional treatments needed for up to 12 months
What Can I Expect from Juvederm®?
Dr. Taghizadeh will make several injections along the targeted creases and folds. The Juvederm® gel immediately fills in your lines and wrinkles so you see an immediate improvement in your appearance.
How Juvederm® Differ from Other Types of Injectable Fillers?
When compared to other injectable anti-aging treatments, Juvederm® is unique because the gel formulation is easily adapted to the specific needs of each patient. Dr. Taghizadeh can manipulate the gel to precisely target the contour of your lines and wrinkles.
Recovery from Juvederm®
After the treatment, the injection sites may feel slightly tender. Over the following months, the HA in Juvederm® continues to soften the creases and folds. Most patients do not need follow-up treatments for one year.
Where Can Juvederm® Be Applied?
Juvederm® is FDA-approved for treating common signs of aging that are graded as moderate to severe. Treatments can be applied to:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Facial contours, such as the cheek area
- Lips to add fullness and improve lip shape
Will Everyone Benefit from Juvederm®?
Injectable products such as Juvederm® are recommended for men and women who want to look younger, but do not require surgery. In some cases, Juvederm® may be used after surgery to provide slight improvements to the skin appearance. Dr. Taghizadeh may recommend an alternative product if you have a history of allergic reactions to the ingredients in Juvederm® or if his professional experience determines that another option is best for your anti-aging needs.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost in Phoenix?
Juvederm® is an elective cosmetic treatment, so the injections are not covered by medical insurance. In an effort to make Juvederm® available to everyone who will benefit from the injections, Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, offers several payment options, including cash, check and major credit card. You may also qualify for financing through Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit®.
Losing facial volume as we get older allows our skin to sag, thus creating deep folds and creases that add years to our appearance. Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, offers Juvederm® treatments to restore lost facial volume and help you look younger.
