26 Procedures ( View All )


Palo Alto patients seeking skin rejuvenation may consider Juvederm to attain outstanding results. Sun damage, heredity, and lifestyle all produce visible signs of aging. This occurs when the face loses its firmness, develops wrinkles, and loses volume in certain places. Nonsurgical fillers reverse this aging by softening facial creases, enhancing shallow contours, and restoring lips to a more natural and fuller look. Dr. Schendel prefers Juvederm, which is a gel that includes natural, non-allergenic hyaluronic acid to replace the skin’s hyaluronic acid that aging has depleted. When injected, it subtly lifts and adds volume to the skin, thus smoothing out wrinkles and creating a softer skin appearance.

Administering Juvederm

During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the possible comfort of local anesthesia and a numbing solution contained within Juvederm, the filler will be injected into the skin. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied to the area. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Juvederm procedure.

What To Expect

The majority of patients who receive Juvederm will notice remarkable improvements after their very first treatment with results lasting up to one year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide. Since hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, Juvederm side effects are intriguingly minimal with no missed time from normal activity.

Alternative Fillers

Injectable fillers have made major advancements in the past two decades and offer a terrific cosmetic solution for patients who desire specific results without surgery. While hyaluronic acid fillers are a great choice for many patients, there are others to choose from that can garner youthful, smooth skin. Common filler procedures include those that are comprised of collagen, calcium hydroxyapatite, and polylactic acid. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and will work to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.

Expected Cost

The average cost for a syringe of Juvederm ranges between $400-$1,000. The cost will vary based on the size of the area and the desired result.

Juvederm FAQs

Will the Injection Hurt?

The injection may cause some discomfort, although the size of the needle is very small. Lidocaine, a numbing solution, is contained within Juvederm to help diminish pain after the treatment. Our team will work hard to ensure patient comfort, and may choose to apply a local anesthetic to numb the area.

What Other Anti-Aging Options?

Although fillers have proved to be a terrific solution to make skin appear younger, there are other options to consider. Fat grafting, BOTOX and Dysport, as well as plastic surgery, all hold the potential to provide tremendous improvements to the skin. During the initial consultation, our team will discuss the comprehensive options and give recommendations for the absolute best procedure tailored to each patient’s desired outcome. This may include a combination of cosmetic treatments.

Will I Look 20 Again?

A Juvederm injection reduces fine lines and wrinkles for a softer appearance. While this product will not make you look 20 again, it will minimize the lines and wrinkles on the face, and provide a youthful glow that many patients desire. It is important to set realistic expectations. This will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
