"Positive Experience - This will be my second time having breast augmentation done by Dr. Aiello. I first went to him over 15 years ago and now its time to have them replaced with a modified lift. My first experience was great and I've been very happy my breast augmentation but after three kids and 15+ years later its time for a redo. I wouldn't go to anyone else but Dr. Aiello :)"- J. / RealSelf / Apr 22, 2019

refreshed and rejuvenated
Juvéderm treatments generally only last around 15 – 30 minutes based on which areas are being corrected. Your skin will be cleaned, and then the injection sites will be selected. To reduce discomfort throughout the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. Following your procedure, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine; however, strenuous activity, including exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your treatment to prevent massaging the gel into other areas.
What to Expect from Juvéderm
You typically see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm procedure, but you could also develop light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers are typically visible for as long as a year. Several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after multiple years of injections. Talk to your injector about how soon to schedule your next session at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center to keep your results.
Ideal Candidates for Juvéderm
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Your cost for a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your Juvéderm injections are administered, a personalized injection plan will be made to match your goals. Once this is done, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Although many patients don't think it's necessary, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you're concerned about discomfort. After the injection, you might feel mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should be gone in 5 – 7 days. Please contact Ocean Plastic Surgery Center if you have any severe discomfort or signs of an infection following your injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Injectable fillers and relaxers improve wrinkles throughout the face but with different approaches. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, correct dynamic wrinkles created by repetitive muscle movements. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that improves static wrinkles by increasing volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait about 1 – 3 days to see the complete improvements from your injections. Generally, it takes only one appointment to reach your goals. However, you may make a second appointment if you want to see more improvement or volume.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last from one to two years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be longer or shorter, depending on the speed at which your body absorbs the product.
