As you age, your skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish, resulting in wrinkles and folds. Fortunately, with Juvéderm® injectable gel products, you can do something about it!
At Fiala Aesthetics in Orlando, Florida, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala proudly offers this breakthrough injectable dermal filler to his patients. Juvéderm is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel dermal filler. It has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in people of all skin types. Juvéderm is a dermal filler produced by ALLERGAN, a world leader in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products, and the makers of BOTOX Cosmetic®.
With cosmetic dermal fillers, you will notice an immediate difference after just one treatment. Juvéderm is a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily into your skin, instantly adding volume to your facial lines while leaving a natural look and feel.

Juvéderm injectable gel is a non-surgical, minimal downtime treatment for facial lines frequently performed at Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa in Orlando. First, the soft tissue of your face will be examined to assess the depth and location of your wrinkles. Then careful injections are made into the multiple sites that you have agreed upon during your consultation, filling the valley beneath the wrinkle.
The Juvéderm is injected directly into your skin in tiny amounts with an ultrafine needle. Pain is minimized with topical numbing cream or local anesthesia (if necessary) or application of ice. After making multiple injections, pressure is applied and then the area is massaged to ensure proper placement.
The procedure is simple and convenient, taking approximately 15 minutes. Results are immediately apparent and can last up to one year. In some cases, follow-up visits are needed to touch up the administered areas for improved results. Juvéderm temporarily fills in and the targeted wrinkles and folds on your face.
With Juvéderm, there is minimal recovery or downtime. For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun, or heat exposure. Also avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve, and/or alcoholic beverages in order to help minimize the risks of temporary bruising at the treatment sites.
Bruising can occur after any cosmetic injection and may last from a few days to a couple of weeks. Camouflage makeup may be needed to cover bruising, and other treatments such as Arnica may be recommended.
After your treatment, some temporary injection-related reactions may occur, including redness, firmness, swelling, or bumps. Studies have shown that these are usually mild to moderate in nature and clear up on their own in seven days or less. If you experience swelling at the injection site, you can apply an ice pack for a brief period and makeup may be applied directly after your treatment.
You may be aware of the filler at first but this will pass quickly. As soon as the swelling subsides, the results of your treatment will be apparent. Your wrinkles, folds, and hollows will be significantly reduced and they may even be erased. All possible complications will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation.
