"I simply cannot say enough great things about my experience with Dr. Ankur Mehta and Timeless Plastic Surgery overall. I've seen Dr. Mehta for the past two years for Botox, fillers, Emsculpt and MiraDry. Each procedure was explained in detail so there were no surprises and the results were better and more natural than I even hoped for. For my lips he had a different injection technique that prevented the "duck lip" look that commonly results from other methods. I trusted his advice and am so glad I did! I'm absolutely in love with the results! My lips are very full and pouty yet still have a natural look to them. He also used a very powerful topical numbing cream that worked like a charm. Everyone at TPS is extremely friendly and truly cares about achieving great results. I highly recommend Dr. Mehta and Timeless and as an actress I see why it's the go-to in Houston for cosmetic plastic surgery!"- E.K. / Yelp / Apr 23, 2020
"I recently went to see Dr. Mehta for some issues that had started bothering me post-40. Dr. Mehta and his staff, especially Kaitlin, were so welcoming and warm. They made me feel very comfortable and spent the time to explain my options and the cost associated with each. Dr. Mehta has checked in on me several times after the visit, which was very much appreciated! And most importantly, great results!"- M.T. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm treatments usually only last around 15 – 30 minutes, based on which areas are being corrected. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be selected. To reduce discomfort throughout the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. Following your procedure, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine; however, strenuous activity including 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 treatment to prevent massaging the gel into other areas.
You typically see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm procedure, but you could also develop light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers typically are visible for as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after multiple years of injections. Talk to us about how soon to schedule your next session at Timeless Plastic Surgery to keep your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
The price of Juvéderm will vary based on how much filler is necessary for the treatment area. The more filler that is used, the higher the cost of the treatment. Prior to your injection treatment, a customized plan will be created to fit your aesthetic goals and budget.
Will the treatment be painful?
Though most patients do not find it necessary, a local anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area prior to injection if you are worried about any pain. Following treatment, you may experience some slight swelling and bruising that will usually subside within a week depending on the treatment area. You should contact our office if you experience any significant pain or abnormal side effects after your Juvéderm treatment.
What is the difference between a dermal filler and a muscle relaxer?
There is a great difference between dermal fillers and muscle relaxers such as BOTOX. Where BOTOX works to relax wrinkles and help prevent future wrinkles, Juvéderm helps to add volume to the face. Juvéderm is ideal for filling in deep-set wrinkles including smile lines, and it is also beneficial for creating fuller lips.
What results can I expect?
It may take a few days to see the full results of your Juvéderm treatment. Typically, it only takes one treatment session to achieve your desired outcome. However, you can schedule a follow-up appointment if you would like to add more volume than received with your initial treatment.
How long do results typically last?
The effects of one Juvéderm treatment can last anywhere from 6 – 12 months. This may vary based on the area in which the filler was injected. The longevity of results can also depend on how the patient’s body breaks down the filler over time.
