to Provide You the Personal Care You Deserve
The years can change your face as the fat that helped contour your face grows thin, making wrinkles and lines more visible. Dermal fillers can be an effective way to fight these early signs of aging and help maintain a more youthful look. JUVÉDERM uses hyaluronic acid — a natural substance that helps your skin retain moisture — to soften moderate to severe wrinkles and smile lines, plump lips, add volume to the cheeks and other areas and improve the look of sunken scars.*
A Texas native, Dr. David Dellinger holds board certifications in both plastic/reconstructive and general surgery, and has more than two decades of experience performing surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments. At Elysian Plastic Surgery, Dr. Dellinger works with men and women in the Austin area and throughout Texas who are interested in improving their appearance with medical spa treatments.
Contact us online or call our Austin office at 512-229-1978 to learn more about your options for non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
The best candidates for JUVÉDERM are healthy men and women who are bothered by wrinkles, lines or a lack of volume in their cheeks or lips. You should keep in mind that JUVÉDERM results are temporary and cannot achieve the same results as surgical facial rejuvenation. Dermal fillers may help delay changes in your face that could lead you to consider a facelift or brow lift.*
At your consultation, Dr. Dellinger and his staff will talk with you about the results you hope to see and how best to achieve them. Dr. Dellinger may recommend a combination of treatments, such as JUVÉDERM to smooth wrinkles by the mouth and BOTOX® to temporarily relax the dynamic muscles that cause crow’s feet.*
Your JUVÉDERM appointment may take between 15 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas you have treated and whether you’re combining JUVÉDERM with another treatment option. Before beginning the injections, Dr. Dellinger will assess the appearance of your face overall, your skin tone and the areas you plan to have enhanced to pick the right spots for the injections. Your skin will then be cleansed and a topical numbing cream or ice may be used to minimize discomfort.*
You can leave right after your JUVÉDERM appointment and get back to your normal routine. The areas you had treated may be tender for a day or two and your skin may look red or feel numb temporarily. Ice packs and gentle massaging may help relieve the soreness and dissipate lumps at the injection sites. Dr. Dellinger may recommend avoiding vigorous physical activity for 24 to 48 hours to minimize the possibility of bruising or swelling.*
Your results should be visible right after your appointment and can last from several months up to a year or two.
What does JUVÉDERM treat?
JUVÉDERM is intended to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the mid-face. Where there is lost facial volume, JUVÉDERM can help fade away lines and plump up the area for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Which JUVÉDERM product is best for my needs?
JUVÉDERM offers a wide variety of products to address different concerns. Your trained injector will be able to discuss your concerns during your consultation and recommend the appropriate products to help treat your problem areas. Here are some options that we offer:
How can I expect my JUVÉDERM results last?
Typically, JUVÉDERM products offer results that last around 1 to 2 years.
What should I do if I don’t like the look of my injections?
JUVÉDERM can provide natural-looking results when administered by a trained and qualified injector with extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. However, if you are unhappy with your results, there are options you to add to or resolve your JUVÉDERM treatment.
If you want to further enhance your treated areas or add more volume, we can inject more product. If you are wanting to remove the filler, there is a solution called hyaluronidase that is injected into the same injection site to dissolve the HA filler.
It’s a good idea to give your injections time to settle before deciding to add or remove the filler.
Are JUVÉDERM fillers permanent?
JUVÉDERM is not a permanent anti-aging solution. While results can last for up to a year or more, your body will gradually absorb the HA filler to which you’ll need a follow-up treatment to maintain your desired results.
How much filler do I need?
How much filler you’ll need depends on your age, level of wrinkling and creasing, the size of the area needing treatment and more. Typically, most people only need 1 to 2 syringes of filler, but it is not uncommon to use more. Your injector will help you determine the recommended amount during your consultation.
We generally start will a lower amount of filler to ensure you have a natural-looking result. It’s much easier to add more filler then it is to overfill.
Are there any risks associated with JUVÉDERM fillers?
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, so there is a much lower risk for an allergic reaction. However, as with all dermal fillers, there are some risks and side effects to watch out for including:
Typically, these side effects will fade in a day or two. However, if you notice that they are not going away or are getting worse, you should call our office right away.
More severe but rare risks and complication include:
How can I prepare for JUVÉDERM treatments?
During your consultation, we’ll go over how to prepare for your injections in more detail. However, some general guidelines include:
