"Had a facial with Heather Shumway, by far amazing ! She's very knowledgeable about skincare .. my skin was feeling very dry and dull and was having some mild breakouts .. my skin feels and looks amazing!!! I will definitely be going back"- A.M. / Yelp / Jan 10, 2019
"I've been a patient here for many years and had several procedures. Dr. Shumway is always caring and takes the time to answer all questions and concerns and the results are fantastic. I visited several doctors before deciding on Dr. Shumway and am glad I made the decision to become a patient here. Follow up care and scheduling by the staff are top notch. They all truly care about the patient and go the extra mile to make sure you are well cared for. When I developed breast cancer (I did not have any breast procedures here) and was down, they took the time to send me a card to lift my spirits. Not many doctors and staff would do that. I'm also very happy with Heather Shumway, please go and enjoy a facial with her. Very relaxing and she provides great advice on your skin."- J.P. / Yelp / Dec 28, 2018
Juvéderm treatments typically only last around 15 – 30 minutes based on how many areas are being addressed. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be selected and marked. To decrease any discomfort throughout the procedure, Juvéderm formulas contain a local anesthetic (lidocaine). Following your procedure, you may continue your normal routine; however, strenuous activity, such as exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your Juvéderm injections to prevent pushing the gel into unwanted areas.
What to Expect
You should see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm injection, but you could also have light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for around 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm treatments typically can be seen for as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after 2 – 3 years of injections. Talk to Dr. Shumway about how soon to schedule your next injection session at Shumway Cosmetic Surgery to sustain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Costs for a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your Juvéderm treatment, a personalized injection plan will be developed to match your goals.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
While many patients don't think it's needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before injection if you're concerned about discomfort. After the injection, you might have mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should reduce over the next week. Please contact Shumway Cosmetic Surgery if you have any severe discomfort or signs of an infection following your injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Both fillers and relaxers smooth wrinkles but through different methods. Injectable relaxers, such as BOTOX, stop dynamic wrinkles from contracting (chronic muscle movements). Injectable wrinkle fillers, like Juvéderm, improve static wrinkles by adding volume. Juvéderm is great for improving mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks or lips.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last up to two years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower, depending on the speed at which your body metabolizes the formula.
