Juvéderm Frequently Asked Questions
If you've noticed the volume in your face steadily declining, or if you feel plagued by deep wrinkles along your forehead, now is the time to correct these effects of aging with the Juvéderm collection of injectable wrinkle fillers. From treating lines and wrinkles to giving you lips and cheeks that are plump and full, Juvéderm treatments provided by the Beach Beauty Bar at Urbaniak Plastic Surgery produce attractive results that look full but natural. Juvéderm fillers can be done alone, together, or with other nonsurgical treatments to fully address your concerns and meet your goals. Juvéderm treatments are crafted with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) that is designed to boost the body's natural supply of HA and collagen for supple, healthy skin. Talk to board-certified physician Ginger L. Urbaniak, M.D. or a member of her team about rejuvenating your face without the expense and time of cosmetic surgery with the Juvéderm family of wrinkle treatments.

- Juvéderm Voluma enhances the shape of the cheeks to reverse flatness in the mid-face.
Juvéderm Procedure Technique
The ideal candidates for Juvéderm injectable wrinkle treatments are women and men who have facial wrinkles and lines they want to improve upon. These injectables can also help if you have naturally thin or age-related volume loss in your cheeks or lips by plumping these areas and giving them a natural fullness. Juvéderm dermal filler treatments at Urbaniak Plastic Surgery are a fantastic alternative if you are looking to refresh the appearance of your face without the recovery time and expense of facial cosmetic surgery (like brow lifts, facelifts, eyelid lifts, or lip implants). They can act as a liquid facelift, nonsurgical lip augmentation, or nonsurgical cheek augmentation.
"Very lovely afternoon spent at this office with Teuta giving me a wonderful facial, she was professional, friendly and informative. And then Dr. Ginger, who was very impressive with her technique! It all felt tailor made to me and my skin. I have definitely found my new med spa and can’t wait to try more things. Very friendly staff, office is very clean and nice."- N.S. / Google / Jun 16, 2020
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm injections on average only take about 15 – 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being addressed. Your face will be cleansed and the injection spots will be selected and marked. To decrease discomfort during the procedure, these formulas contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine) mixed in with the HA solution. After your treatment, you can resume your typical daily activities, but strenuous activity such as exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You should be careful to not touch your face after your Juvéderm injections to avoid pushing the filler into unwanted areas.
You will see a noticeable improvement immediately after your injection appointment, but you may also have mild swelling or bruising in the treated areas for around 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm treatments can last for up to one year; in fact, some patients find that their improvements start to last longer after 2 – 3 years of treatments because the product formulation encourages a natural increase in the body's production of collagen. Talk to Dr. Ginger Urbaniak or your aesthetician about when to book a touch-up or full injection session at Urbaniak Plastic Surgery's Beach Beauty Bar to sustain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Costs for Juvéderm will vary depending on how much filler is needed to improve or enhance the treatment area. Prior to your Juvéderm treatment, a customized treatment plan will be developed to fit your goals and budget. After this, your injector can discuss cost estimates and payment options. We invite all of our patients to join Urbaniak Plastic Surgery's Diamond Membership program, which awards members with discounts on a range of our most popular nonsurgical procedures.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
While most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about pain. Following the treatment, you may have some slight swelling and bruising that will usually reduce over the next week depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any lasting pain or abnormal side effects after your treatment.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers correct wrinkles but through different methods. Injectable relaxers, like BOTOX, treat dynamic wrinkles caused by chronic muscle contractions. However, injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, correct static wrinkles by adding volume and fullness. Juvéderm is great for improving mild to moderate wrinkles or to add volume to your lips and cheeks for a nonsurgical lip or cheek augmentation.
What results can I expect?
It may take several days to see the full results of your treatment. Usually, it only takes one session to achieve your aesthetic goal. However, you can schedule another appointment if you would like to further improve your results.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last up to two years. This will vary depending on what filler is used and where it was injected. The longevity of your results can also depend on how fast your body breaks down the formula which is an uncontrollable biological process that is unique to every patient.
