Have signs of aging kept you from feeling and looking your best? Young skin contains an abundance of hyaluronic acid, a naturally hydrating substance that absorbs water to create volume in the skin. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin decreases, causing your skin to droop and wrinkle. Appearance of wrinkles and fine lines can be frustrating for some of us. Fortunately, there are non-surgical treatments to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by giving the skin more volume.
At American Laser Med Spa in Amarillo, TX, we offer JUVÉDERM as a safe and effective treatment to replace missing hyaluronic acid and restore firmness and structure to your skin. We understand that surgical procedure could be terrifying for our patients. Therefore, we offer Juvederm in Amarillo for natural-looking results.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm is an FDA-approved filler that has minimal to no downtime or side effects. It is a safe and effective treatment with long-lasting results. This product contains hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally produced substance. Our skin uses hyaluronic acid to maintain its volume. However, since this substance deteriorates as we age, the skin can lose its volume. Therefore, Juvederm restores the volume in the treatment areas.
Common areas treated with Juvederm are as follows:
- Smile lines
- Smoker’s lines
- Nasolabial folds
Additionally, Juvederm family offers multiple formulas to address an array of concerns.

What are the differences between Juvederm and Botox?
Juvederm and Botox are different in their formulas and mechanisms. One of their similarities is to diminish the signs of aging. Juvederm’s main component is hyaluronic acid; however, Botox’s is made from neurotoxins. Moreover, Juvederm is a dermal filler, but Botox works on the muscles beneath the skin to temporarily paralyze them.
Our professionals can guide you to make the correct decision about the appropriate treatment that can deliver the best results. Botox and Juvederm in Amarillo promote exceptional results.
What is the treatment with Juvederm in Amarillo like?
Prior to your treatment day, we will conduct a consultation to develop a treatment plan for you. We will assess your needs and desires to deliver optimum results
On the day of your treatment, we will apply topical anesthetic cream for a comfortable treatment. Depending on the treatment sites, the procedure might take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Following the treatment, our provider will massage the area for even distribution. However, it is extremely important that you do not manipulate the treated sites, if not instructed to do so.
People with severe allergies to lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins, and people with a history of multiple allergies marked by anaphylaxis, should not use JUVÉDERM. Safety in people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or who have a history of excessive scarring has not been studied. Remember to always discuss your health history with your doctor.
In order to get the most out of your JUVÉDERM® treatments, you should follow the pre- and post-care instructions. We will provide you with a complete list of Do’s and Don’ts. Some of the instructions are as follows:
- Before your appointment, avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS) for at least a week to reduce the risk of bleeding.
- Come to your appointment with a clean, makeup-free face.
- After your treatment, please avoid the following for 24 hours: strenuous exercise, alcoholic beverages, and extended sun or heat exposure.
What are the results of Juvederm?
You only need one appointment to see the amazing effects of JUVÉDERM, and you’ll see a dramatic improvement in your skin’s appearance that very day. Our patients generally notice the results once the side effects subside.
Additionally, results generally last about a year (18 months with JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC). Unlike other skin-tightening procedures, there is no downtime after a JUVÉDERM treatment. The side effects for Juvederm are minimal. You may experience some pain, tenderness, redness, swelling, or firmness at the injection site, all of which should clear up in about a week. We highly recommend that you follow up with us to maintain the best results.
