Are signs of aging such as thinning lips and deep nasolabial folds making you feel self-conscious?
JUVÉDERM® injections by Dr. David Jayne in Oklahoma City, OK, can rejuvenate your features by boosting the skin's volume.
Why is JUVÉDERM such a popular dermal filler?
A Safe, Effective Way to Turn Back the Clock
Look YoungerJUVÉDERM is a dermal filler that reduces the prominence of deep lines and wrinkles. It can also add youthful volume to the lips and cheeks to help you regain youthful, supple facial features.
Safe TreatmentThis filler uses hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient. This substance is naturally produced in the body, making the risk of allergic reaction virtually non-existent.
Lasting ResultsA single treatment administered around the nose and mouth can last up to a year. Cheek treatments have been found to last as long as two years. Patients can undergo touch-up treatments at our Edmond practice serving Oklahoma City to maintain the desired results.
What Is JUVÉDERM and How Does It Work?
The popular dermal filler was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2006. This means that unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic and other injectables that provide rejuvenation by relaxing specific muscles that cause wrinkles, this solution helps patients look younger by increasing skin volume.
This filler consists mainly of hyaluronic acid (HA), a moisture-binding sugar molecule that is produced naturally in the body and is found in the greatest concentration within the joints and the eyes. Among many other functions, HA promotes skin elasticity and the production of collagen, a protein the also plays a vital role in skin elasticity. As we age, the body produces less HA and collagen fibers weaken, resulting in sagging skin and the formation of folds and wrinkles. Injecting JUVÉDERM into specific treatment areas restores skin elasticity, softening signs of aging and helping your features to look more supple.
Is JUVÉDERM Right for Me?
Are in Excellent HealthThis filler is minimally invasive, but the better your capacity to heal, the better you can expect your results to be. Dr. Jayne will review your health history during your consultation at his practice serving greater Oklahoma City to be certain that JUVÉDERM is a good fit.
Wish to Correct Moderate Signs of AgingAlthough JUVÉDERM can be an excellent way to achieve rejuvenation without undergoing surgery, the fact is that this treatment cannot provide the same degree of results that more invasive solutions can. Dr. Jayne will take note of the areas you wish to treat and determine if this or another solution is the surest way to achieve your desired results. We also offer other non-surgical rejuvenation treatments such as peptide therapy.
Have Realistic Expectations
The right candidates understand that no cosmetic procedure available today can make a middle-aged man or woman look 20 again. However, when administered by an experienced doctor, JUVÉDERM can make you look rested, happier, and yes–even a bit younger.
Competence and Care
"Dr. David is an excellent Doctor. I've been seeing him for a couple of years, and has demonstrated his competence and care repeatedly with me. I recommend Dr. Jayne to anyone looking for a doctor. He always has the correct answer!" Angel S.
What Does JUVÉDERM Treat?
After years of smiling and other facial expressions, lines begin to develop at the corners of the mouth (laugh lines). Most men and women also develop deep nasolabial folds, which start at the nostrils and extend to the corners of the mouth. JUVÉDERM can add skin volume to dramatically reduce these lines.
As collagen and HA deplete over the years, the lips can begin to look thinner. Of course, some of us are born with naturally thin lips. Whether your concerns are genetic or are age-related, JUVÉDERM can give your lips the luscious, youthful volume you desire for a more youthful, poutier smile.
The cheeks can begin to look hollow or flat as we age. In many cases, they can begin to sag. When you begin to notice subtle changes, JUVÉDERM can "lift" and plump the cheeks to restore youthful contours to the mid-face. The specific type used for this enhancement is called JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC.
What Happens during JUVÉDERM treatment?
The treatment begins with a consultation in which Dr. Jayne will assess your candidacy. If he determines that it's right for you, he may ask you to stop taking aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for a week to minimize the risk of excessive bleeding.
During your appointment, which typically takes 15 minutes or less, the injections will be strategically placed in specific treatment areas to help you achieve the results you desire. The filler itself contains lidocaine, an anesthetic, for your comfort. However, if necessary, Dr. Jayne may also apply a topical anesthetic. You can expect to see results immediately, and they will improve as the formula integrates with your skin.
For the rest of the day, avoid alcohol, strenuous exercise, and sun exposure. Dr. Jayne will let you know when you can resume wearing makeup.
Side Effects and Risks
For about a week after JUVÉDERM treatment, you may experience:
- Minor pain
As long as you choose a qualified and reputable practice to administer your treatment, the risks are relatively low. Otherwise, you could face a greater risk of achieving results that either don't meet your goals or look unnatural. In other cases, a mistake such as an injection into a blood vessel could result in scarring, stroke, and other complications. Although much has been said about the simplicity and efficiency of this procedure, it pays to trust your care to a qualified practice.
Dr. Jayne has earned a reputation throughout the greater Oklahoma City area for helping patients achieve beautiful, natural-looking rejuvenation through today's most advanced non-surgical enhancements including injectables such as BOTOX Cosmetic, PRP therapy, peptide therapy, and more. He also offers a variety of laser skin rejuvenation treatments.

JUVÉDERM vs. BOTOX Cosmetic
In a world where these products have become legitimate household names that everyone knows as a fast way to rejuvenate your facial features, it can be easy to confuse or misunderstand what makes these solutions unique.
In the simplest terms, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC and other varieties of this filler soften signs of aging by boosting skin volume and spurring collagen production, making it an excellent solution for treating areas that have become aged due to decreasing skin elasticity. BOTOX Cosmetic, on the other hand, temporarily stops specific muscle contractions that eventually result in signs of aging such as crows' feet, brow wrinkles, and parallel lines between the eyes (the 11s).
