Juvederm® in Houston, TX

Dr. Joseph Perlman offers Juvederm® to patients throughout Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, Baytown, and the surrounding areas.

What Is Juvederm®?

Juvederm® is a hyaluronic-based gel that is easy to inject and results in a smoother distribution and even skin surface. As we age, our skin gradually loses collagen and fat, producing lines, wrinkles, and sagging in the epidermis. For Texas residents, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, help plump the skin, making it look fuller and healthier.

The key component in Juvederm® is purified hyaluronic acid. Found in all living cells, this natural complex sugar helps make up the connective tissue of your dermis, the inner layer of your skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts and maintains water, hydrating your skin and increasing its volume and density. Of all the dermal fillers, Juvederm® has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid.

When Juvederm® was introduced, Dr. Joseph M. Perlman was selected to offer the dermal filler to his patients before it was available to the general medical community. This was because of his extensive experience in the use of a variety of dermal fillers and his effective results. Like hundreds of men and women in the Houston area, you can benefit from Dr. Perlman’s expertise.

Am I a Good Candidate for Juvederm®?

Collagen and other fillers have been used for years in lip enhancement, lip augmentation, wrinkle correction, and other skin rejuvenation procedures. Juvederm® can assist with the following:

  • Lines between the eyebrows (glabellar furrows)
  • Lines around the outer eye area (crow’s feet)
  • Horizontal wrinkles above the brow line (forehead lines)
  • Lines extending from the nose to the outer corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Lines extending downward from the corners of the mouth (marionette lines)
  • Lines from the outer corners of the mouth to the cheeks (smile lines)
  • Adding volume to the lips (known as lip augmentation)

Many Juvederm® patients are drawn to the gel’s versatility. It is also typically smoother than other dermal fillers, creating a more natural appearance. Dr. Perlman can help you decide whether Juvederm® will be the best option for you. He and his staff have worked with patients throughout the Houston area, including Spring and The Woodlands.

What Is the Process for Juvederm®?

Juvederm® treatments take about 30 minutes. Patients may experience mild discomfort, which is minimized by a local or topical anesthetic. Often, Juvederm® is formulated with the local anesthetic lidocaine to provide a comfortable and pain-free injection.

When you undergo a Juvederm® procedure, your Juvederm® specialist will use a thin needle to inject the gel into selected tissues. Initially, Juvederm® works as a filler by increasing the volume of tissue under the skin. Because the hyaluronic gel attracts water, the volume of the area will be maintained, even as the gel is absorbed by the body. As a result, the effects of Juvederm® can last up to six months.

There are many different dermal fillers available, so Dr. Perlman and his staff encourage you to do your homework. We have advised men and women in Spring, The Woodlands, and other locations in and around Houston.
