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.
Best Candidates for Juvederm?
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.
"Great doctor. Short wait time. Great staff. Good results (I hope). "- B. / Demandforce / Mar 12, 2016
"I came here in February and had a wonderful experience. I only waited about 10 minutes and a lovely PA treated me. She was very warm and engaging, I really appreciated it because I was initially anxious and uncomfortable about the procedure. We laughed a lot and although the process was quite painful, she definitely made it more bearable. Will be following up soon for a second!"- B. / Google / Oct 23, 2020
"I’ve been coming here for about a year or so, I have to be honest, I haven’t had the best luck. Few times, including today, I wanted to give up and find a new place BUT I’ve meant the sweetest, caring, compassionate, hard working, goes out of her way to make things right......her name is Kim. She has gone above and beyond to take care of things that weren’t taken care of before. And for that I will continue to come, because I know I can count on her. Thank you Kim for caring about me as a patient and a customer. You have touched my heart with your listening ear, kindness and have always cared about my concerns. I wish everyone was like you! I’m grateful and thankful for you."- T.W. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2021

"Great first impression! I initially received a referral from my PCP to another dermatology clinic but, after reading some of the reviews and asking around, I made the decision to cancel that referral and find another clinic in my network. I chose this one based on the good reviews here and elsewhere. I was seen by Daniella Arellano PA-C for hair loss/thinning. She listened to everything I had to say and presented various options we could take. No pressure to dive balding-head first into some expensive procedure, but I am happy that I was presented with a few paths to pursue without ruling out any of them for future consideration. I even had some medical questions a week after my appointment so I called and left a message, and I received a call back the same day with answers.This was my first time at this office. It was very clean and everyone I encountered from check-in to check-out was very nice. Located on Sonterra ACROSS from the Methodist hospital - navigation kept wanting me to go TO the hospital!I have only given it 4 stars because I don’t know yet if the visit will fix my issue and I did not want to mislead anyone by giving the impression they can fix EVERYTHING immediately. Maybe they can... and then it will be a 5!"- S.O. / Yelp / Jul 14, 2021
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 from Juvederm
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.
