Patients in the Boston area who regularly struggle with hiding lines and wrinkles on their face may turn to Wellesley Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Peggy Howrigan for treatments of Juvederm. This dermal filler works beneath the surface of your skin to fill lines and wrinkles and to help you appear younger and refreshed.
When injected into a line or wrinkle on your face, Juvederm acts as a sort of scaffolding and supplies necessary hydration to the skin. The hydration is supplied by the hyaluronic acid that largely makes up Juvederm. The product mimics your skin's own properties as hyaluronic acid is a key component in your skin.
Since Juvederm mimics the hydrating qualities in your skin, it is often an ideal injectable treatment for many types of facial lines and wrinkles. Patients who are over 18 years old and are healthy may undergo treatments of Juvederm in Newton to correct:
In your consultation with Dr. Howrigan, she will ask you about your aesthetic goals. Based on your needs and her assessment, Dr. Howrigan will devise a customized treatment plan for your skin.
Prior to your treatment of Juvederm in Boston, your face will be cleansed and prepared for injection. Using a variety of advanced techniques, Dr. Howrigan will carefully inject Juvederm beneath the surface of your skin at the chosen injection sites. As it is a filler, you will see some immediate correction of the facial depression. Your plastic surgeon may then gently massage the treatment site. This will help ensure an even placement of the Juvederm and a smoother result.

As you leave Dr. Howrigan's practice, you will be given aftercare instructions. You should avoid exercise for a day or so, but should be able to return to your normal routine. It is not uncommon for your face to feel somewhat tight at the injection sites and to experience some redness. These are both temporary side effects and will dissipate over the next several hours.
When any minor swelling has subsided, you will experience the full wrinkle-smoothing effects of your treatment with Juvederm in Wellesley. The results of the treatment can last up to a year, as the product is naturally reabsorbed by your body. As this process takes place, many patients choose to return to Dr. Howrigan for touch-up treatments of Juvederm to maintain the effect.
