No question or concern is too trivial to bring up with your doctor. He or she is devoted to your complete satisfaction and happiness at every stage of your procedure.
For your convenience, we have two offices in the Charlotte, NC area, as well as offices in Shelby, Hickory, and Gastonia. We also welcome patients from across the US as well as those traveling from international destinations.
We Care For The Health Of Our Patients
Every patient is fully evaluated prior to any treatment, and our Charlotte NC Juvéderm physicians and dermatologists always hold your health as our top priority. It is advised that Juvéderm treatments be administered by a medical professional, rather than in a spa environment. It is generally considered important to hold off on these treatments until you reach 18 years of age, as the facial structure changes throughout the adolescent years.

What Can I Expect Post-Injection?
Charlotte, NC dermal filler patients are typically in and out of the office within 30 minutes, making this one of the easiest and fastest procedures available. The most commonly reported side effects with JUVÉDERM injectable gels included injection-site redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discoloration, and itching. If you do experience any lingering discomfort or soreness at the treatment sites, an ice pack will help numb the area. You can also follow up with a few ibuprofen. Most side effects were mild or moderate and lasted 14 days or less.
One of the risks with using these products is unintentional injection into a blood vessel, and while rare, the complications can be serious and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring. As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
