What is Juvederm?
Aged skin not only has lines and wrinkles but lost volume as well, which all can be addressed with Juvéderm. This hyaluronic acid filler is injected into lines and folds around the mouth and nose and can also be injected into hollow areas like the cheeks to increase volume. Since it is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body, it is absorbed easily to increase the production of collagen and elastin, which contribute to skin’s volume and firmness. San Antonio dermatologist, Dr. Garcia, administers Juvéderm Ultra and Plus to patients for younger-looking skin.
Individuals who are seeking to treat wrinkles without having to undergo surgery, are usually good candidates for Juvederm. Depending on how deep and how many wrinkles are being treated typically determines the filler product, but Juvederm works good in patients who wish to improve moderate facial lines or augment the lips. Those with deeper lines and creases may be better suited for thicker filler material.

"I love, love, love Sonterra Dermatology and Dr. Garcia. My girls and I have been seeing her for about 4 years and could not be happier. Both of my girls skin looks great and she has them on a great regimen. The staff is always professional and knowledgeable and they go the extra mile to help you with what ever you may need. I also have to add that another great thing about this practice is that I have never waited more that 10 min. for my apt. time. That is a huge plus, as more times that not, you wait on most doctors. Thank you to Dr. Garcia and to your staff for running such a smooth and well oiled practice!"- J.H. / Yelp / Oct 01, 2019

Juvederm is an outpatient treatment typically administered right inside our office. Similar to other injection treatments, the injection sites will be marked on your face using a washable pen. The amount of Juvederm administered is dependent upon the depth of the wrinkles and location areas. Some patients will need more or less of the product depending on the desired results. Typical treatments last approximately 30 minutes, but some can take up to an hour.
What to Expect
Patients should expect to see immediate results following their treatment. Juvederm contains the anesthetic lidocaine, so patients should not experience discomfort, although there may be some redness at or around the injection sites after the treatment has been completed. The dermatologist may gently rub the areas of the face to help the filler spread evenly and smoothly. Treatment is expected to last up to a year and many patients return after that time frame.

On average, filler products, such as Juvederm, run about $400 per syringe. Some of our thicker, longer lasting fillers will cost more. Some patients may only require a single syringe of Juvederm to attain the results they desire, while other patients may need multiple syringes. The amount of filler product to use, as well as the treatment cost will be discussed in detail during the initial consultation.
