Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers like Juvederm® smooth away lines and replenish lost volume for a rejuvenated look. Assessing your unique skin and bone structure, Dr. Wade expertly and gently places Juvederm® into the skin to restore and enhance natural contours; lifting cheeks, smoothing wrinkles and plumping lips – all without invasive surgery or downtime.

Pricing for all treatments of Juvederm® will be decided in the consultation stage. Everyone's unique needs, wants and facial structure means that the custom treatments will vary in price person to person.

Dermal Fillers – $550 per syringe, $50 off second syringe, $300 for ½ syringe.

How it Works

Dermal filler treatment is a quick, simple, comfortable and non-surgical procedure during which Juvederm® injections are strategically placed under the skin to restore volume and definition to facial features. Juvaderm® is composed of Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body. It’s present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin. As we age, our storage of hyaluronic acid diminishes. It can be used cosmetically to fill wrinkles as well as to restore volume in the chin, cheeks and lips. The goal is to keep your appearance natural looking and well balanced. It is biodegradable and reversible and will break down gradually over time and disappear from your body. Whether you are looking to restore, enhance or smooth your facial features, dermal fillers in the hands of a good clinician can really do wonders.

The Juvederm® treatment provided by Dr. Wade is administered with a very small needle after the skin has been cleaned and numbed. Discomfort is minimal due to the addition of the local anesthetic lidocaine to the Juvederm® XC formulations, and appropriate injection technique. Generally, the process takes no more than 30-45 minutes to complete. A follow-up appointment after 2 weeks is included in the price of the treatment to assess results and determine if any further treatment is required.

Results are immediate and last 6-18 months on average, although this can vary between individuals. Patients who have had a Juvederm® procedure can generally resume normal activities on the same day. Side effects are generally mild and short term, such as bruising and swelling at the injection site. Juvederm® is a FDA and Health Canada approved dermal filler. With careful patient selection and safe injection techniques, Juvederm® is proven safe and effective. Although rare, there is a risk for more serious side effects which will be discussed with you in depth at your consult.

What Can I Expect

Treatments last anywhere from 15-45 minutes, with most patients reporting minimal discomfort. There may be minor swelling and bruising after a treatment. You can expect to see results immediately with the full effect within a week. Results last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
