Juvederm® in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Has your skin begun to sag as you age, forming unsightly lines and wrinkles? This is an effect of the body’s diminished ability to produce hyaluronic acid, a key component of the skin. Hyaluronic acid enhances the volume of the skin by attracting water molecules. Restore this lost volume with Juvederm® injections, a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid. This treatment can help to counteract the aging process by improving the skin’s structure and volume. Juvederm® is offered to the residents of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County by Nathan Eberle, MD, DDS at the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery.
What is Juvederm®?
Juvederm® is an injectable dermal filler treatment that administers hyaluronic acid (HA) directly into skin cells to help facilitate the preservation of valuable moistures and amplifies fullness and volume in the skin. Rather than eliminate lines and wrinkles through temporary muscle relaxation like other injectable dermal fillers, Juvederm® uses the hyaluronic acid to naturally soften lines, wrinkles, and creases. With time and age, our bodies naturally produce smaller amounts of HA, thereby diminishing the amount of hydration our skin cells directly receive. Because its key component is a naturally occurring chemical in the human body, Juvederm® has proven to be a safe and effective treatment.
Benefits of Juvederm®
Juvederm® is revered for its effects on wrinkles, lines, grooves, contours, and creases in the face. Patients who desire to reverse the beginning signs of aging seek Juvederm® treatments by Dr.Eberle because the use of hyaluronic acid provides the skin with much-needed hydration and nutrients, leaving skin feeling refreshed after the treatment. Juvederm® has become a coveted procedure among patients because of the following benefits:
- Restoration of a voluminous, soft to the touch appearance
- Easily absorbed by the skin
- Quickly and easily administered
- Immediate reduction of visible lines and wrinkles
- Results that last up to 12 months
- No downtime or recovery period
- Safe and effective alternative to cosmetic surgery

Is Juvederm® Right For Me?
Juvederm® treatment is often performed on men and women who have started to notice facial wrinkles. Juvederm® can be used to reduce the appearance of forehead creases, smile lines, crow’s feet and other facial lines. Dr. Eberle uses injections of dermal fillers such as Juvederm® to enhance the contours of facial areas, such as the lips and cheeks by adding volume to the skin. Most adults in good general health can undergo dermal filler treatments.
What Types Of Juvederm® Are Available?
Juvederm® comes in three formulations: Ultra™, Ultra Plus™ and Voluma™. The Ultra™ gel is formulated for fine lines and superficial wrinkles with a small particle size and smooth consistency. Whereas Ultra Plus™ is used to fill in deeper facial folds. Voluma™helps to enhance skin volume in areas such as the cheeks.
How Involved Is The Juvederm® Procedure?
Juvederm® is a minimally invasive procedure requiring no incisions, no anesthesia and less than an hour in our Weston office. This makes it a popular option among patients looking for a quick boost in their appearance. A thin needle is used to deliver the Juvederm® solution into the targeted facial area. Following the injections, patients are free to leave the office immediately.
How Long Is The Recovery After Juvederm®?
No recovery period is needed. Patients can return to work or other daily activities immediately. Some patients notice slight bruising or redness lasting a day or two, though this can be covered with makeup. Dental work and massage should be avoided for two weeks following the procedure. Some results are visible immediately. As the injected solution attracts water molecules to the skin, further improvements in skin volume will be seen within a few weeks. The results usually last six to 12 months.
How Much Does Juvederm® Cost?
The cost depends on the type of Juvederm® used and the volume of gel required to meet your aesthetic goals. Often, patients choose this treatment as an alternative to more expensive and invasive cosmetic surgery options, such as a facelift or brow lift. Financing is available.
