Juvéderm is one of the most popular and effective injectable wrinkle fillers made with hyaluronic acid (HA) on the current market. Juvéderm was approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2006 to increase volume and improve the appearance of the face. The synthetic HA in Juvéderm supplements the body's natural limited supply of HA to encourage the skin to remain hydrated and elastic. New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Dana Khuthaila often applies Juvéderm injections to fix smile lines, lips, cheeks, nose at her office on Central Park South. Juvéderm can treat larger areas with many wrinkles since it spreads outside the injection site and can be massaged for even coverage.
"22 Year Old Unhappy with Profile of the Nose - I always felt that my profile was missing something but I didn't know what I wanted to correct. I realized after taking countless profile selfies that the tip of my nose was lacking perky-ness (If that any makes sense). I've thought about having a rhinoplasty to correct it but I didn't want to break my nose in the process being that all I wanted was structure to the tip. Dr.Khuthaila recommended we try a non surgical temporary treatment and we proceed from there. I was amazed with how quickly and instantly the results were! My nose has the perfect uplift I was looking for and she saved me from going under the knife when it truly was not necessary. The result is exactly what I wanted and I cannot thank her enough for all her help and support. <3 "- S. / RealSelf / Apr 06, 2017

"I met Dr. Khuthaila through a mutual friend. I have been thinking for a couple years how much I would love to have a breast reduction. Where do you start? Something like this you want to be able to trust in your doctor. Also to know that your doctor is listening to your wants. I found Dr. Kuthaila to be a very dedicated and truly passionate about what she does for people. Plus she listens! I am from Connecticut and was willing to travel into New York so that I could have her do my surgery. I was a bit apprehensive about this , but her location is so easy to get to and out of New York. I started the process and was worried about my insurance coverage from someone out of network. The office people where so helpful and I got my OK. Then we set up date and time and they even booked my hotel for me! Really there was nothing to worry about. Now to the results. I am so happy with the way I look and feel!! No more neck and back pain! Can I say I haven't been this perky since I was 18 years old!! There is a lot to say about being really secure in your choice of surgeons. I would highly recommend Dr. Khuthaila."- L.M. / Yelp / Sep 29, 2017
During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the possible comfort of local anesthesia and a numbing solution contained within Juvederm, the filler will be injected into the skin. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied to the area. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Juvederm procedure.
What to Expect
The majority of patients who receive Juvederm 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. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, Juvederm side effects are intriguingly minimal with no missed time from normal activity.
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.

Will The Injection Hurt?
The injection may cause some discomfort, although the size of the needle is very small. Lidocaine, a numbing solution, is contained within Juvederm to help diminish pain after the treatment. Our team will work hard to ensure patient comfort, and may choose to apply a local anesthetic to numb the area.
What Other Anti-Aging Options?
Although fillers have proved to be a terrific solution to make skin appear younger, there are other options to consider. Fat grafting, BOTOX and Dysport, as well as plastic surgery, all hold the potential to provide tremendous improvements to the skin. During the initial consultation, our team will discuss the comprehensive options and give recommendations for the absolute best procedure tailored to each patient’s desired outcome. This may include a combination of cosmetic treatments.
Will I Look 20 Again?
A Juvederm injection reduces fine lines and wrinkles for a softer appearance. While this product will not make you look 20 again, it will minimize the lines and wrinkles on the face, and provide a youthful glow that many patients desire. It is important to set realistic expectations. This will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
