Cosmetic Surgery in Boston, Massachusetts
As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. You don’t have to just sit back and let it happen! Injectable fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane are used to restore volume and fullness to the skin and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Fillers produce very pleasing enhancements, most commonly for your “laugh lines,” “smile lines,” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds), or “marionette lines” (oral commissures). Fillers are also popular to restore lip volume lost over time or to enhance lips that have always been thin or asymmetric.
The results are immediate. In about 30 minutes, you’re on your way to wonderful results that enhance your best features; fill lips, folds, and scars; and restore the contours of the youthful face. If you are considering Juvéderm in the Boston area, come to Finesse where our medical staff has performed hundreds of dermal filler treatments. Our cosmetic surgery in Boston has received numerous awards for its excellence.

Juvéderm® Frequently Asked Questions
What are Juvéderm and Restylane?
They are dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in all mammals that helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. In addition to its use as an aesthetic treatment, hyaluronic acid has also been used for more than 20 years for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as for eye surgeries and wound repair.
How are dermal fillers used in treatment?
the filler is injected into the skin using a fine needle to temporarily fill in and augment the treatment area and smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds) and “marionette lines” (oral commissures). They temporarily add volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface. They also can be used to enhance the lips.
Is treatment with Juvéderm / Restylane painful?
Injections may cause some minor discomfort during and after the treatment. We use topical anesthetic cream and / or local injection of anesthetic to numb the area to be treated.
How long does treatment with Juvéderm or Restylane usually take?
The injection process takes about 20 – 30 minutes.
How long does the correction with Juvéderm last?
Results typically last for six to nine months, individual results will vary. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.
What are the possible side effects of treatment with Juvéderm?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection site reactions such as redness, pain / tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps / bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration.
