Signs of aging are unavoidable as you grow older. Luckily, Juvéderm treatment can help you add volume to your face and restore your youthful looks. Like most dermal fillers, it is designed primarily to lift and shape a section of your face, such as the chin and cheeks or to plump lips and lessen wrinkles.
The Yeung Institute offers Juvéderm’s line of injectable fillers to men and women in the Greater Houston Area in need of facial rejuvenation. Our board-certified facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Cecil Yeung, and Dr. Daniela Burchhardt, consistently provide satisfying results from Juvéderm.
Is Juvéderm Right for You?
Generally, Juvéderm is designed to correct age-related problems by shaping and contouring the facial tissues or increasing lip plumpness in individuals with thinner lips. Before undergoing a Juvéderm treatment, it is important to maintain realistic expectations about your desired results. Sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift,” treatment with Juvederm fillers primarily restores volume in the face and camouflages deep lines and wrinkles. Expected results can include:
- Smooth parentheses lines running around the mouth
- Lifted cheeks and smoothened out lower eyelid bags
- Plump lips
- Smoothen vertical lip lines
- Elevate the corners of the mouth at rest
- Lessening facial wrinkles and folds
Make sure to discuss your goals with your doctor. They will be the ones to recommend the Juvéderm treatment that will help you achieve your ideal results.
What is the Cost of a Juvéderm Treatment?
The average cost for your Juvéderm treatment in Houston is $650 – $800 per syringe. The final price will depend on factors such as the treatment area and the amount of product needed to achieve your desired results.

During the procedure, your doctor will clean and mark the treatment areas. The filler is then administered into the sites. Each Juvéderm Filler contains local anesthesia and the company’s patented numbing solution. A cooling ointment is then applied once each shot is complete. The procedure normally lasts for 15 – 30 minutes and you may return to work and your normal activities.
What Can You Expect from the Recovery?
After your first treatment of Juvéderm, you will notice a remarkable improvement. Your final results can last for 1 – 2 years, after which additional injections may be required. During the recovery process, you might experience the following:
- Mild redness
These signs are temporary but are clearly visible for the first few days after the procedure. Clinical studies show that Juvéderm injections are safe and effective minimally invasive treatment.

Juvéderm Treatment Q&A
It’s understandable to have many questions about Juvéderm treatments. Below are some common ones:
- What’s the difference between Botox and Juvéderm?
Juvéderm and Botox are both used for the treatment of wrinkles but Juvéderm injections plump up your skin while Botox relaxes your facial muscles temporarily.
- Which type of Juvederm filler should I get?
That depends on the specific area of the face you want to improve. The choice of filler used will be determined by your doctor during your consultation.
- What precautions should my doctor advise me about?
Your doctor should advise you against the temporary side effects emerging from Juvéderm. They should also tell you the steps you need to take in order to make the healing process as smooth as possible.
- What are the possible side effects?
Side effects include loss of blood, tenderness, pain, scarring, swelling and allergic reactions.
- Will anesthesia be used during my Juvéderm treatment?
Juvéderm injections include a numbing agent and local anesthesia. This numbs the injection site for a minimum amount of time, allowing you to resume normal activities shortly after treatment.
