“From check-in to check-out and everything in between, the experience at PVPS was fantastic. The staff was attentive and responsive, and since I was a ‘virgin’ to all of this, they made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and in good hands. Ashley did a great job and I am very satisfied with the procedures and outcome. I will be back!”

Botox or Juvéderm?

Juvéderm (as well as many other injectable fillers) offers a similar result as what may be achieved through Botox®, but the approach is different. Injectable fillers help to decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures that look deflated due to aging or weight loss. By adding volume, the skin’s surface appears fuller and smoother. Botox temporarily freezes the underlying facial muscles, allowing them to relax which causes the skin’s surface to appear softer and smoother. A skilled practitioner will be able to determine which procedure would achieve the best results.

Who is the Best Candidate for Juvéderm?

If you’re in the Jacksonville, Fernandina Beach, or Ponte Vedra Beach, FL area and you’re considering Juvéderm treatments, you may be wondering if you’re a good candidate. Those who make the best Juvéderm patients are those who:

  • Are over 21 years old  
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Do not have any type of bleeding disorder
  • Do not have an active skin infection
  • Do not have an allergy to gram-positive bacterial proteins or to lidocaine
  • Understand how cosmetic injectables work and the risks involved
  • Have realistic expectations for what Juvéderm can do

Voluma in Jacksonville,

Juvéderm Voluma is an FDA-approved injectable filler that helps to improve the appearance of the face by adding volume to the cheeks. 

Patients in Jacksonville, FL can begin looking younger and more refreshed after receiving this treatment by one of our highly skilled and board-certified surgeons. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery, we use Voluma to help our patients meet their cosmetic goals without requiring invasive surgery. Voluma is proven to last for up to two years, and patients have often returned for more treatment, as the results are remarkable. 

Juvéderm Treatment Details

Before treatment begins, the areas for the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned. 

The injections may cause some discomfort, although the size of the needle is very small. Lidocaine (a numbing solution) is contained within Juvéderm to help diminish pain after the treatment. Our team will work hard to ensure your comfort, and may choose to apply a local anesthetic to numb the area.

At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery, we use a cannula instead of a needle to administer filler. The benefits of using a cannula instead include better precision and control; less swelling and bruising, and fewer injections needed.

Treatments take approximately 15-30 minutes.

Downtime and Results

Mild swelling and redness at the injection site are usual. Other side effects include tenderness, firmness, bumps, bruising, itching, or discoloration at the injection sites. These will subside a few hours after the treatment. You will be able to resume your normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for 24 hours. 

The majority of patients who receive Juvéderm will notice remarkable improvements after their very first treatment, with results lasting up to one year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide. 

Voluma’s results last even longer, and have been known to remain for up to two years. The duration of the results depends on the area being treated and the rate your unique tissue breaks down the filler.

During the initial consultation, our team will discuss the comprehensive options and give recommendations for the absolute best procedure tailored to your desired outcome. This may include a combination of cosmetic treatments. Your provider at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery will create a unique treatment plan during your consultation.

Alternative Fillers

Injectable fillers have made major advancements in the past two decades and offer a terrific cosmetic solution for patients who desire specific results without surgery. While hyaluronic acid fillers are a great choice for many patients, there are others to choose from that can garner youthful, smooth skin. Common filler procedures include those that are comprised of collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, and polylactic acid. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and will work to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.
