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. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017
"Best Breast Aug Doc in Orlando - I've basically wanted a breast aug all my life. After doing research and reaching out to multiple friends, I chose Dr. Soto. His practice is very clean and well-decorated which shows professionalism. Dr. Soto is a very professional and respectful man. I felt extremely comfortable with him and everyone in his office during this entire process. During my pre-op visits I had a huge list of questions- all of which were addressed thoroughly by either Dr. Soto or one of his nurses, Leinny and Romi. Dr. Soto is very busy but will take the time to answer questions for you and provide thorough explanation. I am 5'2 and 110 lbs and very athletic, I wanted a more natural look- not too big, likely 32C. Dr. Soto immediately made recommendations based on my physique and thoroughly explained to me why. We went with the safest options- under the muscle, moderate profile Mentor silicone gel implants with incision at the crease. No, he did not have any sizers for me to try on and did not tell me what size he was going to give me. He did inform me that he would not give me a size that my body would not allow for. I did not have an issue with this, as I trusted his reputation and experience.At the day of my surgery I was extremely anxious, but his staff did a great job of calming me down and making sure I was okay. After the procedure I was fine- just felt like a did 500 push ups with 135lbs on my back (expected). His post-op instructions and very thorough and some say might be extreme. I listened to and followed ALL instructions to a T- this is VERY important. I was not allowed to raise my heart rate for 4 weeks and was not able to lift weights for 6 weeks. I had about 7 post-ops to date. I did not feel near 100% "normal" until about 8-10 weeks in. I am currently 4.5 months post-op and I am lifting weights completely normally (except for chest exercises, per instructions). I am completely in love with my results. I went from 32A to 32C or D. I am still unsure about the size, I have purchased some 32C and some 32DD. But I am SO happy! I would recommend Dr. Soto to anyone wanting the best of the best. I believe he is considered a bit "pricey" but I can assure you, you are paying for the very best in Orlando and I trust that I will be happy with these results in years to come."- F. / RealSelf / Mar 24, 2020
"Amy is beyond amazing. I needed Botox and filler and was a little nervous about it and the possible side effects. She took her time to inform me of all of my options and what would be best for me to keep a natural look. I am also not a fan of needles, but her technique is gentle and I was comfortable. I highly recommend Amy for all of your aesthetic needs. She is professional and so friendly, I would never go anywhere else!!"- M.L. / Yellowpages / Mar 03, 2020
"I had an explant/breast lift done. I am extremely happy with the results. Dr. Soto is very professional and knowledgeable. The staff was amazing, especially Romie. Thanks for the wonderful results!"- E.M. / Yellowpages / Feb 23, 2020
"I absolutely love this office and the staff. I had a breast augmentation with breast lift a year ago with Dr. Soto and I couldn't be happier with the results, they look natural looking and I am so much more confident in my swimwear now. He is the best! Also, Amy the Nurse Practitioner is just amazing, I have gone to her for botox and filler. She is just so professional and charming. Having never done these procedures before, she did an excellent job of educating me about the different options and common known side effects and helped me to choose the right type and amount of filler/botox to give me the most natural look. I get so many compliments of how refreshed I look. I highly recommend this office for all your aesthetic needs! -Monique B."- M.B. / Yelp / Feb 07, 2020
What to Expect with Juvéderm®
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.
Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
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.
