The aging process brings constant and various changes. For most, the loss of volume in the face can be one of the most noticeable indicators of age. While volume loss occurs over decades, rejuvenation can be yours in minutes.
The Juvederm collection of dermal fillers effectively enhances and restores volume in various facial areas with specially designed formulas. Renowned triple-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Laxmeesh Mike Nayak offers expert application of Juvederm fillers in St. Louis, Missouri, at Nayak Plastic Surgery.
Juvederm offers convenient and natural-looking volume enhancement for facial contouring and rejuvenation. The injection procedure takes minutes and involves no downtime, making it the quintessential “lunch break” treatment.
The hyaluronic acid within the solutions also helps the skin retain its moisture and boosts collagen production for ongoing improvement in the quality of your skin. Juvederm’s versatility and safety make it a popular choice for precise stand-alone treatment as well as combination treatments.
Juvederm offers patients the ability to add volume to the face and smooth lines, enhance features, or correct volume depletion due to aging. The Juvederm collection features gel-like formulas of varying consistencies to mimic the natural tissues in specific areas of the face. Naturally-derived hyaluronic acid serves as the base for these formulas and offers the same benefits as naturally-existing hyaluronic acid within the body.
The hyaluronic acid within Juvederm formulas is converted from a liquid to a gel with varying particle sizes and cross-linking technology. This viscosity of Juvederm’s hyaluronic acid-based fillers allows them to stay in target areas for longer periods before being metabolized by the body. While thicker formulations are ideal for cheek enhancement, thinner Juvederm fillers produce natural-looking results in more delicate areas of concern, such as smile lines, tear trough hollowness, and lip enhancement. While your injector will help you choose the specific injectable product that best suits your needs, some common choices are:
For smoothing wrinkles throughout the face and reducing nasolabial folds.
For enhancing or restoring volume in the cheeks and midface.
For supple lip enhancement with a lower concentration of hyaluronic acid.
For lip augmentation.
For reducing wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.
Juvederm injections typically take about ten minutes and require very little preparation.
When you arrive for your appointment, one of our injection specialists will welcome you into a private treatment suite, cleanse your skin, and apply a topical numbing cream to the target area. While numbing cream usually provides for completely comfortable treatment, Nayak Plastic Surgery also offers lip filler patients optional lidocaine injections before administering their filler.
In most areas of the face, St. Louis Juvederm plastic surgeon, Dr. Nayak, and his associates administer fillers using the cannula technique to reduce discomfort and minimize the risk of bruising. This technique allows for fewer injection sites, and makes such a substantial difference in treatment and recovery that patients fly in for filler injections at Nayak Plastic Surgery. As soon as your injections are complete, you will be free to return to your day. There is no downtime following Juvederm treatment, and you can easily return to work immediately.
Swelling is common following filler injections, especially following under-eye treatment. Any swelling that may occur typically resolves within two to four days. Bruising is also possible but is less likely to occur.
For those interested in keeping bruising and swelling to an absolute minimum, it is recommended to ice intermittently the first day, and avoid strenuous physical activity until the next morning.You can further minimize your risk of bruising by avoiding medications and supplements that may thin your blood in the 2 weeks leading up to injection.
Depending on the location of your treatment, the specific formula used, and how quickly your body metabolizes the filler, your results can last between one and two years or more
The duration of action is typically longer and longer with each treatment. For example, it is not uncommon for lip or tear trough correction to seem “semi permanent” after 2-3 treatments.

Dermal fillers like Juvederm reverse signs of aging by delivering additional volume in hollowed, sagging, or wrinkled areas of the face. Neuromodulators like Botox, however, inhibit the ability of muscles to contract to prevent and reduce dynamic wrinkles that appear as a result of repetitive movement. As most adults experience static and dynamic wrinkles, many patients receive filler and neuromodulator injections for all-over facial rejuvenation.
In general, Juvederm fillers last about one to two years. As filler seems to last longer and longer after the first few treatments, most of our patients need less filler over time, and simply check with their injector if they are in need of any filler while they are getting their quarterly Botox visit.
