Juvéderm®

While Dr. Skalicky, Dr. Shafran, and Dr. DeRosa’s practice encompasses all plastic surgery and dermatology procedures, he has developed a particular expertise in minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures. According to Dr. Skalicky, “There is a wave of patients that want aesthetic improvement with less downtime and recovery. This desire has led to my creation of The Bucks County Plastic Surgery and Dermatology that utilizes less invasive procedures to give a rejuvenated look for patients at earlier ages with little or no recovery.”

Juvéderm® does not require an allergy test before treatment.

Minimally invasive options remain the most popular methods of facial rejuvenation in the United States, and Juvéderm® is a commonly requested and performed non-surgical cosmetic enhancement.

Juvéderm® is very effective at diminishing pronounced, deep wrinkles and facial creases, in addition to adding volume to the cheeks and lips. Composed of a substance that occurs naturally in the human body, Juvéderm® does not require an allergy test before treatment. This popular new dermal filler can significantly reduce signs of aging and have a positive effect on the contours of certain facial features.

Dr. Skalicky, Dr. Shafran, Dr. DeRosa or our PA Kaitlyn Nelson will inject the Juvéderm® solution into the areas targeted for treatment with a very fine needle. To reduce the discomfort from the injection, the areas can be numbed. The procedure usually does not last longer than about 30 minutes; in most cases, it often takes even less than that. Bucks County Plastic Surgery and Dermatology is the premier choice for Juvéderm® injection treatments for residents of Doylestown, King of Prussia, Newtown and the greater Philadelphia area.

Cosmetic injectable treatments

Deep wrinkles, fine lines and creases along the face can be smoothed out and rejuvenated with long-lasting injectable dermal fillers. These minimally-invasive treatments can also add volume to the lips and cheeks, filling out facial features and adding new contours for a more youthful appearance.

Although there are a variety of injectable dermal fillers available that all seem to have similar effects, many of them contain subtle differences which can offer substantial added benefits. One of our health professionals will meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss which option may be the best for your needs. Cosmetic injectable treatments like Juvéderm® and Botox and Dysport® injections are typically very quick procedures with little to no recovery time required.

Benefits of Juvéderm®

  • Safe – All Juvéderm® products are made from a sterile gel that does not contain animal products. The primary ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA), is found naturally in your skin and helps it to maintain its volume. It has also been approved by the FDA for use in the nasolabial folds.
  • Fast results – Many patients notice results immediately after their treatment. After another day or two, you should notice the full effect that you desired.
  • Minimal side effects – Serious side effects are uncommon with Juvéderm®. Most people can resume normal activities immediately and only have a small amount of puffing or bruising around the injection site.
  • Areas Juvéderm® Can Be Used to Treat

  • Nasolabial folds (the “smile lines” or “laugh lines” that run from your nose to your mouth)
  • Melomental folds (the line that forms between your mouth and your chin)
  • Upper lip lines
  • Frown lines
  • Cheeks
  • Candidates for Juvéderm®

    Most people have a very good tolerance for Juvéderm®. Anyone in the King of Prussia, Newtown or Doylestown area who would like to increase volume in areas of their face without surgery could consider it as an option. However, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should wait before considering this treatment. If you bruise easily or have excessive scarring, you should mention this to the doctor during your consultation to determine if Juvéderm® is the right option for you. Patients who wish to further correct their skin may also wish to consider laser treatment options.
