What Are The Benefits Of JUVÉDERM® For Facial Rejuvenation?

By: Dr. Angelo Cuzalina


Fewer features are on display more unapologetically than our faces. If you’re like most people, however, your face is the first area to develop the unwanted side effects of aging, including lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. While plastic surgery can certainly make dramatic and stunning enhancements, many men and women prefer a less invasive approach to facial rejuvenation for addressing early and more mild signs of aging. For these patients, board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Angelo Cuzalina and the award-winning team at Tulsa Surgical Arts are proud to offer the most advanced injectable products on the market today, including JUVÉDERM dermal fillers. Discover the exciting possibilities of JUVÉDERM in Tulsa, OK here, and learn how it can help you restore a fuller, more youthful look in a single treatment!


What causes volume loss in the face?

To better understand how JUVÉDERM works, it’s helpful to know a little bit more about the natural process of volume loss. As we age, our body’s supply of collagen and elastin – two essential components of healthy, plump, firm skin – begins to diminish. In addition, the rate of new collagen production slows, and the existing collagen fibers begin to weaken and deteriorate. This, along with the descension of fat pads and weakening of muscles, leads to a dramatic loss in facial volume, loose skin, wrinkles, and other unwanted symptoms. Most often, patients experience a notable loss of facial volume in the following areas:


  • Cheeks
  • Under the eyes
  • Lips
  • Lines between nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)


When hollow cheeks, sunken eyes, and thin lips begin to make a person look and feel older than they actually are, JUVÉDERM can provide a convenient, effective, and long-lasting facial rejuvenation solution.



JUVÉDERM is a tremendously popular injectable dermal filler that is used to enhance areas of lost volume on the face. Additionally, JUVÉDERM can improve naturally thin or flat features, such as the lips. Like several other fillers, JUVÉDERM contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is designed to mimic the body’s natural supply of hyaluronic acid and keep the skin full, plump, and hydrated. One compelling benefit of hyaluronic acid fillers is that their effects can be reversed using another injectable agent in the event that a patient is unsatisfied with their results or wants to change their look.


What is JUVÉDERM used for?

With a full range of products available within its advanced line of fillers, JUVÉDERM can treat concerns across the entire face, including:


  • Medium to deep wrinkles and lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lines around the mouth
  • Thin lips
  • Lip lines
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Bags or circles under eyes


During your initial consultation for JUVÉDERM in Tulsa, Dr. Cuzalina will thoroughly evaluate and discuss your concerns and help determine which combination of injectables may be most appropriate for you. Oftentimes, pairing JUVÉDERM with an injectable wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX®, yields the most dramatic and complete results. Dr. Cuzalina will also access if you are better suited for different filler alternatives we offer such as, Vobella, Radiesse, Teoxane, Versa +, Vollure XC, Beloteroand Sculptra.  Dr. Cuzalina and all his nurse injectors also offer alternatives to Botox such as Jeuveau or xeomin.  Our newest injectable is Qwo, which is used to treat cellulite.


How long does it take JUVÉDERM to work?

Unlike injectable wrinkle relaxers, which can take up to a week to produce visible results, patients will notice an almost immediate improvement in their appearance following JUVÉDERM injection. Swelling, bruising, and redness may occur after JUVÉDERM injections, but these side effects are typically mild and resolve quickly on their own, revealing the patient’s stunning new look.


How long does JUVÉDERM last?

While the results of JUVÉDERM can vary from person to person based on a number of unique personal factors, most patients are able to enjoy their newly enhanced look for up to a year or longer before a repeat treatment is needed. Factors that may impact how long your JUVÉDERM results last include:


  • How many units are injected
  • Which JUVÉDERM product is used
  • The nature, severity, and location of your concerns
  • Skill of the injector
  • How quickly your body metabolizes the filler
