The Power of Beautiful Skin Lies Within
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our bodies. However, as we age, that hyaluronic acid dissipates, making us look tired and aged.
There are many options out there that can reduce the look of deep wrinkles and fine lines, such as Botox® and Restylane, but over 2 million people in the U.S. make Juvederm their dermal filler of choice. Our body has tremendous power to heal itself, but over time, we lose those abilities because the body produces too many free radicals that can cause stress and disease, as well as damage to our cells and DNA. When stem cells get worn out they stop regenerating new tissue, causing the skin to lose elasticity and form wrinkles and folds.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid and is injected into the treated areas to add volume and increase skin hydration. As the cells in your skin age, you lose the elastin and collagen that once gave your skin the ability to ‘bounce back.’ Juvederm replaces lost hyaluronic acid for up to six months to one year.
How do I know if Juvederm is right for me?
When you are ready to combat the signs of aging, our Houston Juvederm patients can address the following issues:
- Severe wrinkles
- Lost skin hydration
- Laugh and frown lines
Dr. Schusterman always has the best interest of his patients in mind, and always seeks to deliver the best Juvederm Houston has to offer. Therefore, you will be asked to adhere to certain pre-treatment instructions to optimize your experience, which includes: avoiding certain medications, and refraining from smoking or drinking alcohol. When you begin the procedure, Dr. Schusterman will then inject Juvederm into the affected facial areas using a microneedle. Typically, Juvederm takes between 15 – 60 minutes per treatment, depending on the treated areas.
Many patients do not have any pain or discomfort and often return to work or daily activities after their appointment. After treatment with Juvederm Houston patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and wearing makeup or drinking alcohol for 24 hours.
Results are immediate, and you will see even more after any swelling subsides. Juvederm treatments tend to last for six months and, in some patients, up to two years – depending on the type of filler and area treated.
During your Houston Juvederm consultation, Dr. Schusterman will discuss with you the areas the Juvederm filler can make a difference on and explain how they treat specific areas.

As with any cosmetic treatment, there can always be some risk, but complications are rare. You may experience redness at the injection site, itching, or see tiny bumps.
Your Juvederm results will last anywhere from two to six years. Each patient’s experience is different. Juvederm is a cosmetic treatment you will want to keep a part of your skincare regimen.
Juvederm is considered a cosmetic treatment and is not covered by insurance. Dr. Schusterman offers patients a variety of affordable payment options and financing through CreditCare.
The cost of Juvederm will vary, as each patient is different based on treatment areas. Cash, checks, and most major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, are accepted.
Treatment and results differ with each patient. You are able to return to daily activities after your treatment, but you will want to avoid any sun exposure and consuming alcohol to help stop bruising and swelling.
