Rejuvenate Your Face
As we age, our skin can appear to lose volume. A side effect of excess skin formation, this apparent loss of volume can be mitigated through the use of dermal fillers. Juvederm is a particularly popular dermal filler because of its ability to generate a smooth and natural-looking final result. Compared to many collagen-based fillers, Juvederm has been shown in research studies to produce better results. If you are interested in how Juvederm injections can help you look younger and rejuvenated, contact Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, who performed Juvederm in New York, to schedule a confidential consultation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm?
It’s not unreasonable to be unclear about what Juvederm can do for you. Essentially, Juvederm can both mitigate and prevent wrinkle formation; it can make your skin appear fuller and more youthful. You might be a good candidate for Juvederm injections if you meet any of the following criteria:
- You have wrinkles or lines caused by loss of volume
- You are uninterested or not a good candidate for facial surgery
- You want the quick results that come with dermal filler injections
- You have realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish
- You want to prevent the formation of wrinkles
- You want results that look natural and effective
What Happens During a Juvederm Injection
Dr. Rokhsar performs his Juvederm injections at both his Manhattan and Garden City offices. During a procedure, a patient may be asked to use a small ice pack or—if patients request or require it—a topical numbing agent. The injections will then be made. Most patients describe the sensation not necessarily as painful but rather as a slight pinching sensation. Patients are then allowed to resume most normal activities. Because Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, the results look and feel quite natural. Hyaluronic acid is a substance normally found in your body, so there is no risk of allergic reactions.
Patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous activity for a few hours after their injections. Results typically last anywhere between 12-18 months. If you like the results, you can schedule regular maintenance injections in order to maintain those results.

What is Juvederm made out of?
This dermal filler is a gel form of hyaluronic acid, which makes it so effectually fill in severe facial wrinkles and folds as well as enhance lips. Usually only one treatment is necessary to achieve a patient’s cosmetic goals and will smoother lines and diminish wrinkles for up to one year. It is a temporary filler because the body naturally digests it because it is made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all mammals that helps hydrate and add volume to the skin.
What makes Juvederm different from other dermal fillers?
Juvederm is created using a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which provides longer lasting results. Cross-linked simply means the hyaluronic acid has gone through the process of becoming a gel form, as opposed to the uncross-linked form of hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in a liquid state. The gel state allows Juvederm to add volume to the skin, creating a smoother complexion ultimately filling in the wrinkles.
