Juvéderm® is a popular injectable wrinkle filler that can temporarily correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
The treatment works by replacing lost volume with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body responsible for boosting skin elasticity and hydration.
Dr. Dan Shell is a board certified plastic surgeon in Oxford, MS. He routinely administers Juvéderm to men and women seeking non-invasive facial rejuvenation. Skin imperfections resulting from certain medical conditions and lifestyle factors may also be treated with Juvéderm.

WHO IS THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR JUVEDERM?
Juvéderm is recommended for individuals of all skin colors and types and is effective in treating various skin imperfections, such as:
- Deep facial folds and wrinkles
- Thin lips
- Marionette lines
- Hollow areas in the mid-face
Ideal candidates should be motivated to improve their appearance and have realistic expectations of what Juvéderm can accomplish. During your consultation with Dr. Shell, he will be able to determine if Juvéderm is the best treatment option available for your cosmetic goals.
There are numerous factors to consider before committing to any cosmetic procedure. Below is a list of frequently asked questions associated with Juvéderm from our Northern Mississippi plastic surgery office:
How does Juvéderm work?
Prior to your procedure, Dr. Shell will work with you to carefully determine which areas of your face require treatment. He will place a local anesthetic onto the treatment area to make the procedure more comfortable. Using a fine needle, Dr. Shell will then inject Juvéderm beneath the layers of your skin. Once administered, Juvéderm will work by imitating the depleted supply of hyaluronic acid in your skin, effectively reducing visible signs of aging.
What can I expect during recovery?
Juvéderm treatment does not require any downtime, but you may experience some localized swelling and redness. You will be able to resume work and social activities immediately following treatment. Dr. Shell may recommend that you abstain from alcoholic beverages or strenuous exercise for the evening after your procedure.
Are the results permanent?
Juvéderm will eventually be reabsorbed into the body, but the results of treatment can last for up to one year. The treated facial region and your skin type may affect the duration of results. To prolong the results of your treatment, you will need to undergo routine maintenance appointments with Dr. Shell.
Are there any side effects associated with Juvéderm?
In general, Juvéderm is well-tolerated by patients. The most common side effects of treatment may include temporary injection site reactions, firmness, swelling, bruising, itching or skin discoloration. As with all injection procedures, there is also an increased risk of infection. Dr. Shell will discuss all of these details with you prior to your procedure.
Why should I choose Dr. Shell for Juvéderm?
During your consultation, Dr. Shell will listen carefully to your concerns, ensuring that all treatments are customized to meet your goals. His practice uses the latest technology in a comfortable and confidential setting. Dr. Shell is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
