At Portland Face Doctor our goal is to leave you looking the way you feel! When you come in, you quickly realize that not only do we have one of the very best board certified facial plastic surgeons, friendly staff, and state-of-the-art facility, but together we help restore your youthful appearance through a variety of products, services and procedures.

Today we will discuss JUVÉDERM®, one of our most popular, affordable and convenient ‘mini facelifts.’ The most important factor with a JUVÉDERM® treatment is that the result looks organic and natural. With your JUVÉDERM® treatment, you simply look younger, refreshed, and rejuvenated.

JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid gel as the filling agent. Gaining approval by the FDA in 2003(hyperlink word FDA with this FDA article), the Portland Face Doctor has performed thousands of procedures with hyaluronic acid gel (JUVÉDERM®) and we have been thrilled with the results. JUVÉDERM® is used to rejuvenate the skin of the face by softening lines, wrinkles, and folds in the skin as we age. It is one of the best products for enhancing and sculpting the lips.

You might be asking yourself, how soon will I see results? You see the results immediately with JUVÉDERM®. And the look continues to improve for 1-2 weeks as the JUVÉDERM® softens and draws moisture into the area it was applied to. Recovery for most patients consists of mild discomfort and the downtime is minimal. You might have some mild swelling or firmness that usually resolves in a week or less. You also might bruise though most patients do not. Bruising is usually mild and can be covered with lipstick or makeup.

Call us today and schedule a JUVÉDERM® appointment. They are usually 30 minutes long. The injections generally take about 15 minutes and we add another 15 minutes to allow enough time for the numbing injections to work completely.

As we age, our lips slowly lose volume. Women who have noticed this and want to restore lost volume will benefit dramatically from JUVÉDERM®.
