Thousands of patients visit board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto every year in Orlando at Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery to receive Juvéderm facial fillers. This popular product uses a synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), which mimics a naturally occurring substance in the skin that retains moisture, elasticity, and volume. Juvéderm is commonly used to address facial wrinkles and to add volume to deflated areas on the face. It is also known to stimulate collagen production to improve skin elasticity and health. Dr. Soto offers two types of Juvéderm fillers: Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Voluma XC, which both work to dramatically enhance the skin for a stunning and youthful appearance.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me.

"My experience with Dr. Soto and his staff has been amazing. At the beginning, i was hesitant about the procedure he was recommending for me since it was different than what I thought I wanted/needed. He reassured me and explain how the results were going to be much better with the procedure and I am so glad I listened to him! My body has never looked this great, not even in my teenage years. After having two pregnancies, including a multiple twin one, I had lost confidence and my self-esteem was lower. Thanks Dr. Soto! Now I feel better than ever!"- D.H. / Yellowpages / Sep 29, 2017
What to Expect
Juvéderm is a gel substance that is administered via a fine needle directly into the skin. There is no sedation needed, although a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. The injection sites will be sterilized and marked with ink. Once the filler is injected, results are immediately noticeable. The practitioner may massage the treated area so the filler spreads evenly. Other than temporary redness, the treatment has no after effect that will prevent a patient from going back to normal routine. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise for approximately 24 hours. After a Juvéderm injection, the face will look refreshed, softer and smoother.

This procedure is almost pain-free, but this really is dependant on a patient’s overall pain tolerance. The product is administered with a fine injection needle and a numbing cream is usually applied first to help with any discomfort. After the treatment, tingling sensations may occur, and there could be some swelling and bruising. These after effects are temporary and usually subside within a few hours.
Derma fillers have an outstanding track record for successfully reducing signs of aging with less risk than surgical cosmetic treatments. Other nonsurgical options include wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX and Dysport. Severe cosmetic issues such as loose and sagging skin may be better resolved by a surgical facelift. The approach taken will be based on the patient’s cosmetic condition and aesthetic goals.
Back to 20?
It is important to set realistic expectations when undergoing any cosmetic enhancement procedure. While the treatment does take years off the face, it can only do so much for patients who have severe wrinkles and skin irregularities. Juvéderm will definitely help decrease fine wrinkles and creases, and the skin will appear smoother and softer.
