Juvederm® in Atlanta, GA
Do you feel your appearance has gotten harsher with age? Is the youthful volume in your face deflating, causing unattractive facial contours? Juvederm® may be the solution for you. Juvederm® is an injectable solution which contains hyaluronic acid, one of your body’s natural defenses against aging. Hyaluronic acid keeps skin soft and smooth by attracting and binding with naturally-occurring water to increase hydration. The increased hydration increases volume to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Residents of Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs can enhance their appearance with this effective procedure at the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment designed to minimize lines and wrinkles, to help you appear younger and more rested. Juvederm® is an injectable solution composed of hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in our skin. Hyaluronic acid delivers necessary hydration to provide youthful volume. When injected into deep lines, Juvederm® acts as a sort of scaffolding for the depressed skin, giving it support and smoothing its appearance.

Good Candidates for Juvederm®
Because Juvederm® is a minimally invasive, safe procedure, most individuals are strong candidates. Dr. Work recommends that individuals considering this effective procedure are generally in good health and have a firm understanding of the results before treatment. Many of our clients choose Juvederm® because it is based upon naturally-occurring principles and mimics the hyaluronic acid in your own skin, making it suitable to treat patients over the age of 18 and those of many different skin types. Dr. Work uses Juvederm® injectable gel for treating:
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
- Marionette lines.
- Facial contouring and lip augmentation.
- Nasolabial folds.
What Happens During Juvederm® Treatment?
Prior to the Juvederm® treatment, Dr. Work meets with each client for an individual consultation. At this consultation, Dr. Work will discuss your unique concerns, goals for treatment, medical history and recommendations for services. At this appointment, you will learn about the expected outcome of the Juvederm® treatment, the cost for your treatment and what to expect at your appointment.
The Juvederm® treatment appointment itself should be quite short and comfortable. Typically, no extra medication or agents are necessary because Juvederm® contains lidocaine, so there is no need for an additional anesthetic. To perform the treatment, Dr. Work uses special techniques that evenly distribute the product, working carefully to inject specific amounts of Juvederm® beneath the skin’s surface. At the treatment sites, Dr. Work may also apply a gentle hand massage. This helps ensure the product is evenly placed for an ultimate smoothing effect. Juvederm® works immediately and results are visible right away.
There is no real downtime following Juvederm® and most reported side effects are minimal. The skin at the treatment site may feel taut and you may experience some redness or swelling from the injections. The application of an ice pack should minimize these side effects, which are usually short-lived and go away on their own within 24 hours.
Results are visible immediately and the wrinkle-smoothing effects of your Juvederm® treatment can last up to one year before dissipating. As the Juvederm® begins to break down during this time, you will likely wish to return to Dr. Work for touch-up treatments to maintain the desired effects. During these maintenance visits, a lesser amount of Juvederm® is usually all that’s needed for maximum benefit.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost in Atlanta?
The cost of Juvederm® treatments is based upon an individual treatment plan that Dr. Work develops during your consultation. After the appointment, we provide you with a total cost and explain our payment options, including cash, personal check, and major credit cards. If you are interested in financing your treatments with Juvederm®, our patient coordinator will explain how to apply for Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit®.
