Juvederm Mobile, AL


For Moderate to Severe Wrinkles and Folds

Juvederm® is best for patients who have moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the face. By injecting Juvederm into facial wrinkles and folds, you can restore a more youthful appearance to the face in a short amount of time.

Here in Mobile, we can use Juvederm to treat:

  • nasolabial folds
  • facial lines and wrinkles
  • marionette lines
  • thin lips
  • facial contouring issues

Who’s the Right Candidate for Juvederm?

Juvederm is composed of hyaluronic acid and is appropriate for many skin types and ages. As it contains a component similar to what gives your skin hydration and volume, it can be used to treat patients as young as 18 and usually up to age 65. In your consultation with Dr. Proffitt, he will discuss your aesthetic goals with you and help craft a treatment plan tailored to you.

The Treatment: How Juvederm Works

Before beginning your treatment with Juvederm in Mobile, the treatment site will be cleansed and prepared for injection. Using special techniques that may include a form of crosshatching, Dr. Proffitt will inject a specific amount of Juvederm beneath the surface of your skin. There, it will give critical volume and fill the depression in the skin. Dr. Proffitt may also massage the injection site to ensure proper placement of the product.

How Will I Look and Feel After Juvederm?

Following your Juvederm treatment, the injection site may feel a bit tight and may exhibit some redness. These are temporary, however, and will dissipate quickly. For the first day after treatment, be sure to avoid exercise and alcohol, but you may resume your normal routine. The skin smoothing effects of Juvederm can last up to a year in some patients. Many patients often return to Dr. Proffiitt’s Mobile plastic surgery office within this time for touch-up treatments.
