Dr. Ron Shelton of NYC is a dermatologist who assists men and women in looking and feeling better about themselves. He uses many cosmetic solutions for patients and chooses them based on their personal desires and budget. Patients who are concerned about the appearance of their facial skin as they age may be introduced to solutions such as injectables, including that of Juvederm®. Juvederm® is a hyaluronic injection that can be used to fill out fine lines and wrinkles on the face and add volume that reduces their depth. This, in turn, results in a smoother, more youthful texture to the skin and brings forth a fresher look.
Juvederm® is just one of many injectables available through our practice. Dr. Ron Shelton and his team of dermatologists use this injection along with neuromodulators and collagen stimulators for a “liquid face lift” and to keep patients from throwing away their money on more invasive solutions such as plastic surgery. On the other hand, there are patients who Dr. Shelton tells that for them, a facelift is more cost effective and he would rather not perform volume enhancement if they would receive better improvement from a facelift. Many jowls are so far-gone that mid cheek volume replacement won’t lift the jowls enough and the attempt could create the unnatural and almost “alien” appearance, to which Dr. Shelton vehemently objects.
Juvederm® is injected directly into the fine lines and wrinkles of concern. This ensures that the volume is right where it needs to be. Results are immediate, but many patients will ask their dermatologist, how long does it take for Juvederm® to settle?
Juvederm® may take a day or two to settle in place where it will stay for many months. However, most of the injectable allows Dr. Ron Shelton to visibly see where the results will be. It will settle into the wrinkles and provide results in just a few days.
Injections such as Juvederm® are completely safe. They will be absorbed into the skin over the course of several months, so patients will need to continue to have injections done to maintain the results if desired. It is approved by the FDA for cosmetic enhancement.
