JUVÉDERM® – Baton Rouge, LA


When you need a safe and effective injectable to smooth out wrinkles for a rejuvenated look over various areas of the face, Juvéderm will make the surface of your skin look refreshed and younger. The beauty of Juvéderm is that it spreads beyond the actual injection site to improve skin. Comprised of hyaluronic acid, a natural and valuable component found in the skin that decreases as we age, Juvéderm adds volume where hollowness is noticeable. Our patients at Sanchez Plastic Surgery adore this popular dermal filler for the results it produces that can last up to nine months. Baton Rouge, LA plastic surgeon, Dr. Erick Sanchez, injects Juvéderm for his patients to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the mouth, nasolabial folds, and lips. It can also be used to fill in the conspicuous creases between the eyebrows.


Juvederm is performed during an in-office appointment. Prior to receiving the injection, an assessment will be made as to where the injections will go, and how much of the medication (number of syringes) is needed to produce the desired results. During the appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked with ink and a numbing cream will be applied to help with any discomfort. As the solution is injected into the skin, the surgeon will massage the area so that the medication diffuses and spreads evenly. Cold compresses are then applied to help with swelling.

After Treatment

After a Juvederm treatment, patients can return to work, but exercise or strenuous activity should be avoided for about 24 hours. The injections sites will appear red and swollen, but this goes away within a couple of hours. Some patients may bruise, but this is also temporary. The visible results after the injections are noticed immediately. The results will last for about 6-9 months before another round of injections are needed or desired.

Look Younger Today!

Fillers, such as Juvederm, are a fantastic way to turn back the hands of time, adding volume to the face and creating a smooth and softer facial appearance. Our plastic surgery office offers two types of Juvederm: Juvederm XC, which treats moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth and nose, and Juvederm Voluma XC, which is typically used to add volume to the cheeks. During the initial consultation, we will discuss both products and provide a thorough skin assessment so that we can tailor the best treatment to meet your aesthetic goals. We invite you to call our office today to learn more!


"I researched abdominoplasty for months before I had a consultation with Dr Sanchez and his team. They were so available and patient with me through all of my questions even before I finally secured my surgery date. My husband attended my post op appointment with me and I was so impressed with how attentive Dr Sanchez was while he educated him on what was about to happen. I knew I would be pleased but my results exceeded my expectations and I’m so extremely happy!"
