JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel in Las Vegas
Until somewhat recently, people who were unhappy with facial wrinkles and folds had only one option: a face lift. While a face lift is an excellent option for those with significant sagging, wrinkling, and excess skin, it may not be the best option for a patient who wants to correct the early signs of aging or doesn't feel ready for surgery. At Westfield Eye Center, we can restore volume and smooth lines or folds without surgery using JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel. Our Las Vegas patients can experience immediate, natural-looking facial rejuvenation with this injectable filler.

About JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel
As we get older, collagen in the skin breaks down, and the face begins to lose volume. As the fat pads on the cheeks diminish and skin becomes more lax, we develop nasolabial folds - the deep creases that run from the outer edge of the nostrils down to the corners of the mouth. The lips may also start to lose their youthful plumpness, resulting in a wrinkled or lined appearance. The corners of the mouth may start to droop, and marionette lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin may develop. All of these can be corrected non-surgically at our practice in Las Vegas using JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel. This popular filler creates facial rejuvenation results that are beautiful, natural, and long lasting.
JUVÉDERM; is a next-generation hyaluronic acid filler that creates a younger appearance by adding volume to areas that have diminished with age. Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, JUVÉDERM is both biocompatible and biodegradable. This means that the product is not harmful to the body and will be safely eliminated over time. There is no allergy pre-testing required with JUVÉDERM, and negative reactions are extremely rare.
Your JUVÉDERM Procedure
Depending on the area to be treated, the JUVÉDERM procedure typically takes 15 to 30 minutes. You may choose to have a topical anesthetic applied beforehand to make your procedure more comfortable. The doctor will use a tiny needle to inject the dermal filler into the treatment area. The amount of product used will depend on the area being treated.
Results from JUVÉDERM Injectable Gel are immediate, and may last 6 to 9 months or more. Redness and swelling at the injection site are usually minor, and are easily managed by applying a cool compress. There is no downtime with this procedure, and most patients return to work or everyday activities immediately. For many of our patients in Las Vegas, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are performed during the same appointment, for more comprehensive rejuvenation.
